Les and I made a batch of NF Hyd lift rockshafts w/new arms and pins a couple months ago and have not had time or decent weather to even get them painted!!

That was a fun project for the SB and the mill once I had the set up made.

David, I saw a rig yrs ago..50 gal drum...1/2 " outlet at the bottom attached to a hose and sprayer nozzle.He ran a 12v air pump into a fitting at the top.HE ( note he) said it worked very well.Seems like it should...Better than gravity...
I like that idea, pressurized tank. Hmmm...🤔

Wish I had a tank I could do that with but then how do I get an air supply to a cemetery 2 miles out in the boondocks!!

Guess I'll just keep on dribbling w/my garden hose!!
Looked on line at many pumps as suggested and none I found even mentioned pressure output.
Should be good this week though as rain is in the forecast for the next 10 days!!

106 extension cords (100')... be sure to tie the ends together. 🤪


If you don't need it working constantly, what about an air compressor that plugs into your cigarette lighter and then hook up a timer? Could use a battery and recharge it every so often...🤔

This project is Cub Cadet based, right? I see a few options:
1) Gravity assist in the form of that FEL for a Cub Cadet you have been wanting.
2) Air assist via a converted AC compressor mounted on a Cub Cadet.
3) 12V sprayer mounted behind a Cub Cadet.

A couple miles into the boondocks @ Cub Cadet speed => good seat time.

as far as "pressure"... you will not need much in a 50gal Drum... much over #10-#15 and you will compromise the drum. If it's just to help gravity and create a more consistent pattern- you can get a small 12V pump made for air-horns (used alot on motorcycles). They will have low pressure, but a good volume.

If you use a large "pressure-vessel" that will handle more pressure... there are a selection of 12V compressors (made for car tires etc) that should keep up with your needs.

Lookee here now Davey.. Ya' could put oversize tires on that truck ya' been driving and off road it carrying a tank of water..When you get there just hookup the tank to your airbrake system and you've got it made.Spray all day and ride in comfort. :)

Just scored a 55 gal plastic drum that has not been cut.;
2 bungs in the top I can tap into, both have pipe threads already tapped.
I think I can make this work and use my battery pack w/built in air compressor.
I just remembered I even had that thing!!

they do sell industrial gasoline engine powered air compressors, I bet one of those would work.

I'm liking another idea in this thread though, the 'air compressor mounted to Cub Cadet' concept. Might build a little attachment to mount on the front of one of them and bolt up a compressor pump I have laying around!
would also be able to swap it with the generator that I also have laying around when needed :errrr:

Just a reminder....55 gal is a 440 lb load...:drool:
