    You're not still perusing that jetter we talked about. Was Luke the salesperson?

    For years I tried to get answers from them about a larger machine. But they couldn't answer my question about diesel engines and the tier 4 requirements. They're using a 83hp diesel for 18gpm at4000 psi. Not only is it overkill, but doesn't fly out here for epa without a annual fee . Under 50 hp, no annual license. Everyone of the other companies use 49hp to get around the fees.

    As of Jan 1 this year, all diesels over 25hp have to meet tier 4 requirements .. not just tier 4 interim.

        I have an older Spartan jetter, dual axle, 18gpm, 4000psi that came with a 5/8 hose. It's been very reliable, built in Europe I think. Anyway, had it fixed couple of years ago in LA and come to find to out, the 5/8 hose isn't needed! 1/2in is fine. Wish I knew that twenty years ago.

        Spartan is a strange company sometimes....

          yea 18 gpm 5/8" is over kill and harder on the bends in the pipe. But better to big than to small in jetting lol!
