    Got a 500 gallon bulk tank for $500. Sold my 1600 gallon round bottom tank for $1650 and 3 40 gallon barrels for $155 each. Not as much stuff there overall this year but what was there was good. In years past there would be rows of junk. That wasn't the case this year. Four long rows of pretty good equipment.

    Its was a great day for sellers. Like new prices for well used stuff. Some things went for new price. Very nice day, no rain for a change. People get carried away at auctions but that's ok, it keeps the economy moving

    So I bought one of his 250 models last year. Was cleaning it today and found one of the high pressure hose ends broken. I tried calling Rays number on here and got some recording for some school resource officer? Is the right number for Ray? Or does anyone know where I can purchase another hose like his?

    Yep, called them 2x and got a machine from some officer at a school I think.. Not sure if lines are crossed or it belongs to someone else now? Weird.

    Well, just dialed it again. Same person. Then I tried my landline and wrong number again... Can anyone verify this for me? Maybe something is wrong calling from NY? I triple checked the number.....

    You can most likely find all or the fittings at your local hardware store. I've had to replace a couple on my 250 over the years as well
