  1. Recommendations for a good forester on a sugarbush in eau claire county

    Bought a new 40 acre parcel of land. Found 600 easy to tap maples but it needs to be thinned and maintained better. Anyone have any references for a good forester or logging company? Land is south...

    Can you explain more on the plywood peice? I'm guessing you just make a slot the size of your tubing or maybe even a tad smaller to grip it better? I want a set but dont want to pay for it lol

    I found 2 stainless tanks I'm going to pick up this weekend. They are roughly 500 gallon bulk tanks where there is 2 covers on top. They only sit 2-3 ft high so that should help with pitch.

    How many taps can go into 3/4 mainline? Those will be the trunk line, and will go to 1- 1/4 or 1- 1/2 main o the pump I think.

    Yes that is what I'm thinking. Go with a diaphram pump and go bigger in the future. I'm not horribly far from power but still do 12v pump. In future do a better vac pump

    Hey Dave, I've seen your setup and I think it's a great product. Why 3/16 over 5/16 tho? No issue with suckback and no problem with plugged fittings using 5/16.

    5/16 on semi flat land. Vac or no vac?

    Ok so I'm buying some land and have about 600 taps I'm capable of tapping. It has a creek running thru it but this is Wi, so it's mostly flat. Is there a % slope needed for 5/16 tubing without vac?...

    Yep that's what I'm trying to do tweegs. I'm almost tempted to try and make one. All it is, is a higher spring pressure in a spring loaded check valve. Find the right spring and you are golden.

    Is there a type of valve you can use to set your back pressure? In a recirculation setup I need to throttle back the pressure as sap % builds. I have a 4x40 with procon pump and 1 hp feed pump. I'd...

    Parallel will process the sap faster, but require recirculation and a close eye on regulator. As sap % builds you lose efficiency which is why you can do more in parallel. In series you'll pull less...
  15. Backressure automatic control valve

    Does something like this exist? It's basically a pressure relief valve I think but it's meant to be controlling back pressure and not popping off in case of over pressure.

    I think most RO throttle...
