    We need something like that (a conveyor) at truck stops built into the fuel island. When Jim Bob fuels & leaves his truck in the fuel island or in front of the fuel island, goes to the restroom, shower, Arby's, shopping, buys a TV & flirts with the lady at the fuel desk, when he comes back, his truck will be setting out back somewhere & not blocking the fuel island.

    The guy controlling the turn table could really mess with you if he wanted.

    Cool! The doors on the left must be elevators?

    I like it. It's efficient at least.

    ....Until the turntable conks out for whatever reason. :confused:

    I couldn't be the one controlling the turntable... I'd turn all DJ and try scratching the record back and forth.
     
    KillingTime Thanks this.

    I have delivered several shows to that dock. 2 elevators swallow up to a 75' long tractor trailers, drop you down one story, then pull onto the turntable. Very safety conscious down there. Works well.
     
    Puppage Thanks this.

    Looks great. Until Prime comes in the wrong door and tries to back onto a door on his own while the table is spinning.
