    What town is that located?

    BTW, your pics in the zip file have no filename extension. IrfanView figured they are "jpg" files tho.

    Unzip the pics and just upload them, no one wants to do any work to see pics.

    Save the trouble with the zip, here are the pics.

    What size is your main line? Looks like 2.5"-3" in the pic.

    75 GPM, what pressure?, over 15 acres? Your going to have some good friction loss :)

    Around here the Maxi and Mini sneakers are like gold. Not many of them left in this area; I'm pretty certain the Mini got dropped from production years ago, and I believe that they quit selling the Maxi in Canada. Every person I've talked to that owned one thinks they are just great machines...

    Goes to show how different each region is. Maxi's are the only machines you will find here (.)
