    Straight from Texas:) You know it's gotta be good.

    Also, I attached this pic from another thread of mine. Mexican guys tried to plug the tire once it was slit... with more nails... This was on the back of a truck that fixed a flat for my dump trailer today. Crazy.

    No one had had any chewing gum or duct tape?

    Looks like a knockoff ARMOR box.

    It broke cause I ran over it with a sod cutter.

    I had some crusted and hardened blue glue, just kinda made a nasty paste over the hole and patched it up.

    Where is that pic posted in the last week or 2, of a "Cool Whip" cover as a substitute valve box cover?

    Not a dumb question. Henry saves various top sizes. I generally replace the whole box if my standard top doesn't fit.

    I don't run an irrigation truck anymore. All of that stuff is in another truck, the one I'm running now is strictly landscape. (I don't even have room for a ST 90!!).

    But yes, the irrigation truck has extra parts for anything and everything.
