First step was to take the 60hp motors off.
The motors will be stored up on the service path for the winter.
We had a local company do the crane work. We needed all the length they could get. This spot on the lawn is the only access point to the pumps via crane.
The motors are 600lbs a piece and the pumps are 1000lbs. Not that heavy, but still quite a load for the reach that was required.
Pulling the first pump.
They were laid on a trailer to be sent to Toledo.
Pulling the second pump.
The pumps go down twelve feet into a wet well along the river.
You can see which pump was replaced in 2006, this pump will be rebuilt. The older pump will be replaced.
