Default My new sap hauler

Well, broke down and got another tractor this spring after season to haul sap with. The narrow front end of the old one was giving me a very hard time with the mud this year. Also the diesel engine uses a lot less fuel than the old gas one did.
Have a 200 gallon tank on the platform built. Also adding a power inverter to run an oil-less sump pump at 2500 gph to pump the collecting tanks out.

Very nice, your going to love the tall tires, 4wd, and lots of ground clearance as well. I have a Deere with about the same stance. it is very impressive in the mud and snow. Enjoy!

Farmall I guess you wont be needing the wheel weights. Now a nice PTO pump would be nice. Bob with 350 taps that Volt will be just fine.

Darrick, check out McCormick Tractors | Landini Tractors | USA | McCormick USA Click on "about us" at the top. Tells about history of McCormick and what doing now.
Also got a re-build kit for the Gast pump, new bearings, seals and vanes and got new bottom for the oiler to fix the bad thread problem. Will see when get it done how the vacuum level is.
