This Excavator operator had more than engine troubles, I saw this while doing a temp service Insp, you see the dark area on the track's? well that's fuel , it was running out of the eng compartment , while the guy was working on it , he said , he had put something there to catch it ! I said what? The battery charger???? The wind was blowing the fuel on the charger . And YES it is plugged in ! and NO it's NOT on a GFCI , and if you can see where the plug from the charger IS plugged in , the cord cap cover (el-cheapo) has slide off and the terminals ARE exposed .
here's a lil side note for ya,,,, you see that stake in the background? well,,,,, it marks a 800 amp UG to the building,,,I keep my radio on scanner mode I'm just waiting to hear the call, they wanted to string a temp over this , I told them NO WAY dig the new service first, They are putting in a new 800 and an additional 600 for the new building which will go around this. after I saw this , I'm putting it in writing and sending it to all concerned to CMA HV

Hey High Voltage you sure have yuor hands full up there. I can remember doing work in Mass. And if memory serves me right Air Recievers are supposed to be 12 inches off the ground and they ( inspectors ) check them by rapping the tanks with a hammer looking for weak spots. Hmmm..maybe it just Mass...LOL
