OK, now that sounds fun. What type of units are they using on those? Standard Transicolds and Thermo Kings?

Carrier Transicold, ThermoKing and Daikin units.
Even Maersk themselves have gotten into the act with their own container line they call Starcool.

If your interested in the technical side of these units I could link up some PDF manuals of the Carrier or ThermoKing units.

Here's some pics of my service truck. Not quite road legal, but then again it never sees the road.

Then the almost nothing went away entirely in the brave new world of "global warming" et al. Now I am unemployed (for 14 months so far) because my employer considered me too old and specialized to make the transition into the more fashionable and "politically correct" forms of power generation.

Now I am "semi-retired" and running a "compact tractor and backhoe services" business in order to survive. In the wintertime, I plow snow. I also occasionally repair computers on the side, both for the well-known brand name services on a sub-contract basis and independently.

With the kinda of buildings I get to do a framing square is usually useless. I asked the boss about a month ago if I could do a squae normal building. Just once so I could see what it is like.

Welcome to the Forum tinkertoys!

Step over to the Introduction section and tell us about yourself and your tractor.

What part of the Hill Country are you in? I was born and raised in Henrietta, near Wichita Falls. I have worked in Dallas, Houston, San Antonio and Austin.
I was transfered to Virginia 12 years ago and have retired here.

Red Rocker is from Lewisville, just north of Dallas

Jim
