    I was sent this by one of my Resident SmartGuys over on smokestak.com.....
    He ran across this Generator, while making a Service Call on the site.
    Just had to take a picture, and send it to me.... ..... YMMV....

    Nope... CC... That was exactly the way he found the Genset, and the Tech couldn't believe the explanation he got, when he asked about the bucket. Then he didn't say a thing, just took the picture, because, NO ONE would believe Him, OTHERWISE. He did make a Note to the Plant Manager in the Site Report.

    What an idiot. Did you explain that sand or clay would have been a better choice than gravel?
