    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vtsF0...eature=related

    we do lots of work for the city and some for acon what you see in the vid does not look bad but it is real hard on your body there is alot of pressure there and if a hose breaks well let just say it is a lucky day if you only get hurt anything above 15 000 psi and i dont like working it unless my crew knows the job real well to do what we have to next week we will be running well above 20 000 psi close to 30 000 and we have two NEW guys with us and one is a lazy pot head who i am going fire and the other one is ok but does not know the job or the equipment and has me freaked out all day he wants to do the harder jobs but i dont want to let him just yet hope all goes well

    cant wait till i go back to the oil refinery rather be cleaning under ground tanks and pipes with my father inlaw the owner of the compeny then working with the road crew

    Wow, that just knocks the snot out of that concrete road surface. I see what you mean about it being dangerous. Certainly no place for a pot head or someone that doesn't know what they are doing or not being focused.

    Dude fire that damn pot head. Its not worth your safety for his lazy ass to be toking up and not having 100% attention on the job. That looks like some serious stuff.

    I used to pressure wash construction vehicles for a while before I got into the yard/warehousing side of things, and we had one 430 backhoe go out to the slaughterhouses.

    So when it came back I had the joy of trying to dislodge the cow spine from were it was wedged in the joints of the bucket arm.

    Not to mention all the other fun stuff I found that their cleaning guy missed before they returned it, my safety guy was not impressed when I plopped a cow spine on his desk and said "what you want me to do with it?"
