Just kinda curious. I would have killed to use concrete lol . The epoxy grout was Nasty stuff . I see they didn't even spec chamfers on the corners. Same there we had to make sure all the corners were chamfered on everything we did drove me nuts

Luke, I almost spit iced tea out my nose looking at the torque that unit puts out. That's a hand full of twist. My home garage pneumatic unit(not Snap-On) won't do that or the shop beater at work. Keep us in the loop.

Yep, all part of installing and grouting bases. Biggest difference is cost, set time, and concrete grout shrinks as it cures, leaving pockets under the base. The synthetic grout (polymeric I believe its called) sets faster, and doesn't shrink, which adds to stability and strength.

Its good to know, especially when it deteriorates and the alignment on the skid goes way out. Of course, its probably running a flexible coupling, and low rpm, so it will be much more tolerant to misalignment than the bigger stuff.

they are flexible couplers and 1800 rpm for all. and for level on the skid if I'm inside 10 degrees on the long and 5 degrees side to side, I'm good. thats MTU spec.

and the 3512 cats we used to run 3 of on each Nabors AC heavy triple.....as long as the shack was on the ground its a runner.

Luke which method are you using for alignment? Rim/face or parrell bar? Most couplings today can handle alot of misalignment. A hi speed machines are most sensitive to angular missalignment.

I don't think GTG's would be good backup power in a hospital, the guy's on the heart/lung machines wouldn't like the 5-10 minutes it would take to come online

A lot of these gen sets will use a singe bearing generator so there isn't much in the way of alignment like you would have if you were coupled to a compressor/pump etc.

I used a 3/8 one and its nice. I have a milwaukee 18v impact and that thing has good torque and half the price of the snap-on. Haven't used a big one yet but i am curious as to how it turns an old rusted bolt right out or snaps them clean off.

Just wondering how the 1/2 inch impact is holding up. I am now looking at a snap-on one. There seem to be a few different models. But this Milwaukee one looks pretty gnarly.

700 ft lbs and 1100 break away!

One of my mechanic friends told me about the Milwaukee and said it was better than the snap-on. Any thoughts?
