Back to Agriculture Case Studies Mountain Meadow Mushroom Farm
A mushroom farm as seen on Discovery Channel "Dirty Jobs" .
Situation:
Mountain Meadow is dependant on their blender shaft to maintain temperature of  the soil.  With a broken load bearing shaft on their “product” blender rendering the tool inoperable for more than 3 days a loss of $100,000 would be recognized per 3 days.
Solution:
Remove broken shaft with torch, machine id of blender, install new shaft and turn to original bearing size for their machine
Results:
After working long into the night two days straight we were able to have them back up and running and created a new happy customer in the process.
