    What equipment do you find to be an absolute for Irrigation Installations? Rent it or buy it?

    BUY a pipe puller if you live in the north climates.

    He asked what I think would be the most absolute piece of equipment for irrigation installs, so I said a pipe puller. It would kind of suck for him to not know what a puller is and use a trencher for his business, especially if he lived in northern climates. If you read the first post, he asked if he should BUY it or RENT it. I told him to BUY it.

    Lay off man

    What about it?

    Once you work at a golf course for so long "Irrigation" becomes "Irritation" and every tool in the shed seems to become rather useful.

    well put! as my father in law always said ' with the right tools you can do anything.'

    but when you do not have the right tools, improvise!!!


    can you guys believe all the rain we are having this season?

    My hands! But I think it is time for replacements.

    For doing repairs and service-
    My Irri-Tool (I have another post on it) and my Gator Lock pliers.

    A brain that understands irrigation design and sound contruction techniques. Rent it if you don't already own it.

    If you can rent a pipe puller, then rent...
    If you can buy one , then buy one....

    I have a mini sneaker and love it\

    My most important tool though is a shovel
