To each his own, I say. For the real go getters, a trailer and a 185 CFM is the way to go. I am content to do my 2-3 hundred residentials and call it a good year. But that is my choice.
If I needed irrigation to pay the bills, I would think different I am sure. But I don't. Irrigation now is more or less a hobby that will pay for my recreation.
And put aside a bit for my long term health care, I suppose.
That being said, I want to stay with an easy and portable truck mount for my hobby. I will look into a large single stage per the Bootster and see what happens.
Thanks for the opines.
