I think I have a hunch to the answer to the question already, but I'll ask
The company I work for (there are 3 of us) just bought new aerators. The
"forman" decided one should goto him. Thats fine they are heavy and slow
piles of garbage. However he came back today to the shop saying it wont turn
over anymore. The pullcord is stuck. No problem, take the pullcord off and
its not a pullcord problem. I think he ran the machine dry of oil and its
seized, but any other ideas?
Ya we found that out today, and in typical forman style it become everyones
fault except his ($1000 repair) since we should take care of our equptment
and its not his responsibility. Funny tho since the 7 other aerators works
great, and are maintained properly.
Do you own the company? If not, why are you worrying about it?
Did the foreman need an aerator? Does he actually do any labor on site?
Did he intend to keep it and use it for his own personal use? In other
words, did he intent to misappropriate it?
I wonder how much more of the company's and client's property is at his
Your assumption that he probably ran it without oil is probably correct.
Most all gasoline powered equipment is shipped without oil, but you
already know that being that you are working in the 'shop'. Please give
us the name and address of the company so that we will be sure to avoid
