    Go to the LEME (Lake Erie Maple Expo) this fall or the Jan Maple conference in Syracuse in Jan. Either will have what you are looking for and likely at the best prices of the year.

    In the past the only Leader end line fitting I've had success with is the end ring fitting. It grips well and is adjustable, but it leaves a kink in the tubing where it grips.

    You can also use a 1/4" hollow braid rope, slide the tubing into the center of the rope for 3-4" then out the side. Tie the rope to the end tree and it grips like a Chinese finger trap. Then adjust...

    I never used Leader 3/16 fittings, but I've found best results are achieved when you wrap the 3/16 around the tree and have the end line hook joint the main 3/16 around the tree at a 90 degree angle....

    I'm not familiar with that product. Sounds interesting but I have doubts it would hold up in the firebox on a wood fired evaporator. It should do well under the flue pan.

    Keep them slightly cooled. You can use a cooler with just a gel pack or 2. Works well, unless the cooler gets no shade.

    I have a plug that goes in the pipe joining the cold sap float box to the flue pan, but there are 2 adjoining pipes with a partition between them. Each compartment has a drain valve, I plug that...

    Remember to provide deck enough to walk around at least 2 opposite side for cleaning. Also, you should be aware that pressure treated lumber gets real slippery when wet or worse when it has a dusting...

    As long aqs it has good slope it will either give you the same performance or better as what you got before. You must realize that the "old" tubing must be clean. If it was not cleaned post season it...

    Sheet metal on the fire side of the insulation will never hold up (you would be lucky to get a month out of it), if wood fired you need at least half bricks. Oil and gas fired (propane or natural)...

    I used 1.5 and 2" in my projects. If you are rolling on planks, that will be fine. If the ground was hard and even, 4" might be better if you do not have the planks to roll on, but planks will make...

    I think it was in the spring sale period (of 2012?) I got prices from Leader to get a new set of pans for my 3x8 arch. Leader came in at about $15,000 for raised flue pan 3x5 and a 3x3 same side...

    I moved a 12x16 shed once using 3' long PVC rollers. Just do your best to keep them 90 degrees to each wall, the roller does not need to reach across the whole width, that can be 2 pieces. In fact...

    n8hutch is right. I also have moved heavy things on schedule 40 PVC, and I used 2" white PVC. Going over the leach field will require planks to roll on, 2x6 or heavier should be fine.
