It's a control room for a crane arm to unload a barge.

About 15 years ago, we bought an old apartment complex (built in 1947) that had been retrofitted by the previous owners with mini splits for heat and a/c.  Although the units used were from the front end of the technology curve and we had some difficulty finding parts, the overall operation was great.  I had never seen them before and have since advocated their use in many applications.

70MarkDonahue - If you have some idle time in Little Rock and want something to do, give me a hollar; I live in Conway.  Did you know that the Drag-On-Lady AMX is owned by a Dr in LR?

hahaha - good one, thanks. I love it...... but it's jam-packed wall-to-wall now with projects, cars and equipment (until I get the Eagle wagon sold and the SX4 project done (which is a year over-due already)
I'm having to use my engine bench for the plating tanks and supplies and the electric/alternator bench is doubling for other projects. 
At least it IS staying cooler in there. And this week it's supposed to get back into the 90s again so it'll be kicking in again. So far I've hardly noticed the impact on the electric bill. It takes little to operate it. 

I was hoping to collect the water (condensate) from it to use for my plating and cleaning purposes but after a few days the jugs I put the water into ends up with pretty colored and white stuff floating around in them. DANG.  I go through a ton of water - and need distilled water as much as possible. I guess stuff in the air gets into that - mold spores and so on - and maybe the light that gets into the jugs does it, or maybe it would anyway. 
ODD as heck, the jug I use to collect the water in never gets anything growing in it, even if I don't collect the water for two or three days. I wonder why?

The system is quiet - it's not easy to tell when it's running.
