  • Pumper show purchases.....wanna see???

    So I picked up a few items at the pumper show. Man it is expensive to go to that show!!!

    I was like a kid in a candy shop. Great deals to be had there and I couldn't pass these up.

    I will be picking up the jet and camera this coming Wednesday and Thursday. I will post some picks of the the actual equipment those nights.








    I also picked up the new Ridgid SR-60 Locator w/brick and a few new drum machines from Spartan. I am also considering a K-60 as I am starting to really become convinced that it could be valuable to my operations. I wish I could see one in action in person. If anyone around me has one please let me know. I would like to meet up and see what it's capable of. Many of the users on here are no spring chickens, and if you say its a great machine it must be just that. Stay tuned.... i may end up with one of these things yet!

          jr, you'll have to let me know how that insight view turns out for you in the long run. I like the form factor of their monitor. Out of our competitors I think they do the best with form factor in a nicely contained unit with digital . Soon very soon we'll be there.

          Congtratz on the new arsenal though. You spent a pretty penny at the show. Nice meeting you... And yes... the roundup would be a great place to kick around the k60.

              once you kick it, you'll want to take it home with you.

              but first, i and the k60 will kick your butts at the official roundup.

              better book early so there's no excuses.

                        Jake,
                        You have purchased one of the finest, heavy-duty, municipal flushers on the the market. It's an awesome unit. The articulating reel was a good decision. You're going to like that camera too.

                          Re: Pumper show purchase has changed!!!

                          So I have decided to pursue a different jet after talking with a rep. from O'Brien. I have cancelled my order for the Sewer Equipment Company of America jet and i will be taking delivery of the jet shown below. I will have it Friday Morning and will post pics ASAP.

                          I need some help figuring out what to do about a moblie hose reel as this machine does not come with one. I am thinking about making my own by ordering the necessary parts off the net. Has anyone here ever made one of these or have ideas about how to do so? I am looking to have at least 200ft. of either 1/2' or 3/8" hose. It may just be cheaper and easier to buy one but I don't know.


                          2007 O'Brien 7030-SH
                          Cummins Diesel
                          500ft. 3/4" hose
                          700 gal. tank
                          30 gpm @ 3000 psi
                          wireless remote
                          digital counter
                          washdown system
                          5 piece nozzle set
                          Warthog 3/4" nozzle
                          hydrant fill

                            Damn! I just wish I had the huevos to move up to that level. I could count one one hand the number of calls I've had for that rig, but if I had it, I bet they'd start coming in. And that thing would just laugh at the 4" lines I do. Keeping busy clearing clogged sinks and toilets for now. Anyone else made the transition from residential to municipal? How is that done? pros? cons? Local towns around here have their own equipment; All I can see for me with that is culverts. I doubt I could make the thing pay to insure the truck to pull it. PROPS!
                            This is my reminder to myself that no good will ever come from discussing politics or religion with anyone, ever.

                              Why the change. The specs on the other jetter seemed alittle better?
