Growing up on a farm, there is always something to do. This was exceptionally true for my dad, who was always working on the equipment that had broken down. I do not know how many times I walked outside and there he was, lying under a vehicle fixing whatever had broken that day. He is the kind of guy who fixes things himself and gets the job done. Of course, to get the job done, he needs the right equipment to do so. That is why he has always gone to Emerson Manufacturing in Pender, Nebraska. They specialize in air jacks, hydraulic jacks, and safety lifting equipment. They also provide farm service shop equipment such as waste oil, antifreeze and brake drum caddies – which my mom really liked since there was no more oil or chemical spots on the grass or driveway.
