I like the scissors too. My Maxxd had the twin ram and it worked fine.

That would have been the Big Tex, but none around. Just don't want to wait 4-6 months.

Misread, I thought that was the range.

Yeah, this is just 10k. Would have to be a small dozer. I'll take one too though!!

Big diff between this and the BT is the jack and the ram setup. BT has a scissors setup, single ram. PJ has 2 rams like the maxxd I had, worked fine.

The jack would be nice at the front, I will see if welded or bolted on. The PJ comes with a spare too.

Thx for the help guys, just bought this PJ.

I even called Big Tex and they couldn't help me find one, said march is I order now.

Now this is 600 miles from here, but there happens to be someone called Dave who lives right there. He even offered to pick it up and meet me to save me some time and miles.

Now there is a road trip planned, my youngest wants to go.

None on that site TRN, thx. I called Big Tex this morning if they could find me one. They said order only, maybe march,,,,,,

Never heard of them Sean, my searches where for trailer type "deckover tilt"

Looks like I got a PJ in Utah, just a little from BigDave in SLC.

I keep looking at the auto case feeder for mine.

How close are you to a Big Tex builder? Looking for a PJ or BT but nothing around for another 4-6 months!! I found a PJ in Utah so far, road trip (with help)

First one yes, 2nd no, want a deckover tilt full width. Havasu is the same distance, but the trailer is 1k more.

There are 2 local, but almost they want 11k with "taxes". Base prices are 9k.

Thx, bored is good!! This might turn into a meetup with another knucklehead.

I will back up Ken on that. Spares are easy, but if you go there get a prom too.

Aren't all ecms in a metal non grounding box? Or build one?

I have a source in Reno for non alcohol. Maverick. I use it in everything but autos now, just about .20 more too.

Have you looked at the boat additives? They have something that works on the alc.

They are all about the same. I do like the Big tex for the front stand though. I am going to call them monday to and see if they can find a dealer with one closer. Otherwise this is it!

Wouldn't be a long trip though Dave but happy to stop by. Plan is leave thursday, pickup trailer Friday. Stay somewhere and drive back Sat.

Hope your regs are better than mine. Now I will say so far the inspectors have been cool.

Well, as I stated in my raptor thread, I sold the dump for a solid price. I want another flatbed (live and learn).

Now finding one has proved to be real challenge, I mean no one around has em at all. Ordering is 3-6 months out minimum with probably a price hike.

So far I have found a PJ 24' tilt that is 600 miles away near Provo Utah. It has a 2' front deck. I called and it is there. Road trip, 10 hrs out and back. It is also better than $1000 less than anything around here, if they were here. Might even pass a knucklehead or 2 along the way.

So with all of us spread out, maybe you guys have some ideas for me?  I was looking at the Big Tex also, but nothing around here.

I picked an air powered one, but that 20v would be nice. Like you the price is hard to swallow.

I am new to this too, so here it where it is. I was hoping for a 400' well but budgeted for 600'.

Well is 485' deep, sides started falling in after 400' and a small pocket of water. Around 2gpm then, want around 10, 5 is OK for my use with storage.

Casing (6") was pushed in to 485' then they used air pressure to push up just the ground water, filled a 5gal bucket in 8.5 seconds.

They ran out of gravel to secure the casing and still need to seal the top 30' with cement and cap. Hoping for static around 200' or less.

Now looking at solar pumps/systems since power will be a gen while I am there. Use the solar to fill the 2600g tank and work with that pressure for now.

They had a little pocket around 180. My neighbor is 600, about 200 static. It is dry as heck up there now, good time to drill.

Got lots of gravel now to firm up the road. Sure water will help too. 6" casing is here, sure thats not cheap.


It really between, Big Tex, PJ and Maxxd. I can find a PJ here and there, BT is about 4 weeks out, but local and a fair price.

Yep, I'm happy with it if the flow is good. Being shallower, a solar pump is looking better!

Had about 10 emails on the Dump. Got full asking price with no issues.

Now looking for another flatbed. Some around, but not many (unless I lived back east) I have been looking for a Maxxd, like I had but thinking about a PJ or Big Tex too. Most are 3+ weeks out, but not a real hurry for now. Any feedback on the PJ or Tex? I was not impressed with QC on the PJ.

On the well, they are at 480'. They are going to line/cap it there, thinking it has around 10gpm.

Looks like the dump is sold, got about 6 calls on it. Funny a ladt from NV is supposed to come get it.

I liked my Maxxd 22' but few around. PJs are around but the dumps QC is not what I call stellar.

Made the run up to the Ridge. Well is 380' and about 2gal a minute. Tomorrow will tell, want over 5 easy, prefer 10, will see.

As posted above, they got 75' the first day. Only drilled from 1300 to 1530 with all the setup.

They should be done this week easy. Trying to head up Weds (day trip), hoping they will be done and to get the perk test done.

Come to the realization that I need a flatbed more than a dump trailer (live and learn)

Went to pick n pull to get the serpentine setup off a 6.5 truck.

Motor was pulled so bingo there, but I got an air cleaner and A/C housing for it off other vehicles.

Anyone know where a serpentine setup is for a 6.2/6.5 gm diesel? I have been emailing recyclers and looking for motors with no luck at all.
