Hard to do. Especially when that pipe gets slick.:D
I usually pull them with a rope and my pick up truck. Also have a well wheel that clamps onto the caseing.
up-z-daisy anything over 100' if less than 100' i have a footjack. it grabs the pipe to prevent it from slipping out of my hands. The worst is wehn you have to go "fishing" that is fun!
Back to my original question though... What's the oldest pump you've replaced? Submersible, jet, circulating-whatever.
This one was around 35 years old. That's the oldest one I've pulled.
swapped out an old jet pump i believe it was about 30 to 35 if my memory serves me it was a burks
I have a customer that has a Burks Jet Pump right now that is at least that old. I'm VERY easy with it if adjustments are needed.:)
check here only ones i can find I have the #8871 "Rancher's pipe holder" and the $90 vise grips!
I don't know how old it was but I pulled a 100' galvanized line once :help: We used one of those things Wrench Spinner showed. I never knew what it was called. It slipped a few times on us. I thought we were gunna lose it :eek:
I have worked on and replaced jet pumps way older than I am subs in the forty range also and the big Q is my state says you have to be licensed to work on a well from the discharge side of the pressure tank back but well drillers are inspected but not others holding a license
