So I'm bored again waiting to load some crap on the truck (wheat mids). Here's what the mirrors look like from the cab of a big truck. Not really many blind spots on mine with 7 mirrors. The window in the door is a fisheye lens. So I can see pretty well driving this thing and there's not much excuse for running over a small car, unfortunately.
This big hanging thing with the auger in it that I shouldn't be playing with is how my truck is loaded at this place. I lower that canopy down, turn it on, and the auger turns with the wheat is pushed through it. When it piles up high enough, it holds the wheat in the auger and pushes it farther along.
Yes it can run it right off the back of the truck, I've had to shovel up a couple piles of it. Then you get to take a wheelbarrow full of this crap down to dump it in the nastiest dumpster you've ever seen or smelled in your life until it's all cleaned up. Also bad if you forget to open the tarp before you turn the thing on cause it will quite happily dump a pile right on top of the tarp which you then have to shovel off by hand.
No, I didn't set that alarm off. I dunno what it is but it goes off pretty regularly. I usually sit at this place for a couple hours waiting to get in the gate and then it takes an hour and 15 minutes from the time you turn the machine on until the truck is full. Boring as fuck but there's snot many job where you can sleep half the day and not get in trouble for it.
