    Nice tank if the condition is good. I have a 415 and a 545 Sunset, then a Mueller ~ 375 gal (not marked). All 3 of those tanks are real good, then I have some others a little the worse for wear but the inner tanks are good. I set my tanks using an 8000# excavator slung using 2 endless straps, my tractor would not lift them onto a raised platform.

    that little sunset is just for the couple hundred on 3/16 that we pull back to the sugar house, the 2400 gallon H20 tank under the roof is brand new this year, now we can gather and not worry about storage, and no more recirculating as we added another pressure vessel to the RO, yup that is a 400 sunset and we also have a 545 sunset in the woods, and a 500 mueller sitting right next to it lol

    Windy Acres,
    For some reason I just had to go back and read your thread from the beginning! I dont post and follow as much as I used to. Remembered your handle and just had to see how you had grown! You should publish this as a guide to starting into the maple business! Some folks may never grow as you have but a lot of them do. There is a market for good maple syrup and its a great project! I chuckled at your additions but I can see the work that you have put into each one as you have grown your business! I see continued quality in your sugarhouse and your equipment. You have done good! Thanks to all the good pictures along the way too!
    Regards,

    Good morning Windy Acres. I am loving the tool chest/drawers under your counter top. Could I ask you who manufactures that?

    After working in a 20x30 foot drive shed for the past 5 years, we are finally getting a sugar shack fit for purpose!
