    I agree on upsizing. You'll be very happy down the road when you add a few taps and realize you don't have to modify your arch. I have a few "redo's" under my belt so I can speak from experience,...

    The width of it is good. You want the heat to flow evenly underneath your entire pan and then up and out. A narrow opening forces the heat to "funnel" inwards towards the smaller opening, causing...

    Not to hi-jack this thread, but I was also looking for a gear pump, but for just moving hot syrup. I knew the "NL" series was no-lead and figured I'd check e-bay for the heck of it. Of course,...

    Regardless if you RO at the woods and haul it or RO at the sugarhouse, if it's going to have to set for a while it needs to be refrigerated. Keeping the concentrate cold is key. And if you RO at...

    I can not speak on gravity from experience but I can speak on the difference when pumping through 1" and 2" hose. For years, I both collected and then unloaded with the same, 1" inlet/outlet gas...

    Yes, I've had people ask me, "Where have you been?" during and immediately after sap season! Lol! Being outside earlier than everyone else will give you some added color. However, my farmer tan is...

    I think I'm going to go with CDL also. My 3/16 lines are all CDL. A neighboring sugar maker has used CDL products now for a few years and is very happy with it's performance.

    I agree, the max flo flex drops have all sorts of crud in them. And I had a fair amount of difficulty getting it on the fittings. Despite the great flexibility of it I don't think I'm going to get...

    Thanks guy's. I'm going to have to try something. They nearly chewed completely through a line twice! I don't know how it didn't break- I'm lucky I didn't find it on the ground. I've had plenty...

    I know this question is a lot like the Ford vs. Chevy question, but I'd still like to hear everyone's opinions.

    Who makes the most flexible, user friendly 5/16 drop line tubing? What have you...
