      I don't know if he is still in the business, but I worked with a man named
      John Guteck who was a Heidelberg technician. He installed the Windmill that
      you purchased from me, taught me how to use it, and serviced it for me every

      He was located outside of Chicago and the contact numbers I have for him are
      847-550-1617 (business) and 847-804-1617 (cell). It's been a while since I
      last called him, but maybe he is still around.

      Hope all is well with you.

      A cautionary tale indeed.

      Don't use a pallet jack on a ramp.

      Bad idea.

      Glad to hear you and the press survived.
      Also glad to hear you've got a German tech nearby. Great resource!!

      Anybody know of a Windmill service tech in the Upper Midwest?
