    Re-wired the pump, repaired the tank, fixed the gear shifter and it runs and works perfectly. Donald does his first twelve acres with it tomorrow :cool2:

    Yes, the permagreen machine has already paid for itself :)

    Although we did run into a snag already. The tank repairs did not work all that well and started to leak on Donald Monday afternoon. We are going to have to replace *not repair* the tank. We priced it with Permagreen and it is not expensive at $120.00 plus shipping. The only problem is we don't have two or three days to wait soooo....Donald bought a 17 gallon tank and pump at the Tractor Supply store that he strapped to the other tank. Yes it is rigged but Donald says it is working fine.

    Today he is finishing up the property he started on Monday that turned out to be more like 20 acres instead of 12 *good thing we are subbing for this one and get a set hourly rate*

    We will eventually replace the permagreen tank and sure wish there was somewhere where we could get one without having to order through Permagreen....anyone have any ideas where we could find one?
