Nice work guys ! Did you load it up the same day too ? Did you get the pan line as well in the background of the pictures?

Venturing into the southern field I see. . . the final frontier Hmmmmm.

The short story is we were looking at another nice piece of equipment owned by the same guy about 1/4 mile away. Chris said we should head back over to where they were working. We were there all of 2 minutes when they started loading some shaker pans into the scrap bin. So we kept on talking with the land owner. When they came back with the loader they pulled the actual shaker from behind the pile of pans, then the bargining started :D

We are going down friday to pick it up. Just a touch wide to fit in the back of the truck. We didn't get any of the pans, they weren't for this shaker anyway.

There were only two pans there for this shaker and they were pretty beat. They were loading them in the trailer when we got back there, before we even knew the shaker existed, so no we didn't get any.

Being in the right place at the right time certainly helps. Awesome to see this get saved.

Well the shaker conveyor aka the bumper conveyor is at it's new home. There was a few equipment malfunctions along the way but nothing that couldn't b fixed with a railroad jack, a clevis, or a quick hand on the chain fall :lol:
