Last week I bought a huge load of pumps and parts up in Northern California. This is a 15 minute video recap of my trip.

Thanks for watching,
Rob

Great vid!
Man, those Bennetts... they just seem to be 100 lbs heavier than most other 6 footers!! If I remember right, they weigh 575lbs each. Thankfully you were not hurt and looks like the pump came out ok.
My son saved me from having a Erie 766 fall on me. It pays to have help! Ya get a leg or arm under one of those when it's going down and it's sure to snap and crush A LOT! I agree with Paul's comment above!
I was trying to figure out around how much weight you had on there. I have a 7500lb trailer that weighs around 2200. I hope yours is about 10,000lb because I think you were over 7500lbs in pumps,,, not sure tho??
Thanx for sharing!

Thanks Ron, I use to do maintenance in spring and then the fall. I think my trailer was at 3500 lbs, two axles. Changing that tire had to be scary not only your location but the weight. I too was a one man band so I can relate and respect your drive, those days for me are just a memory now but thanks for taking us old farts along.

What is your trailer load max and how often do you do maintenance on your trailer? I once bought 56 pumps and after loading unloading after 5 trips I never did that agin. Thanks for sharing.

Boy, that's Lots,of Work !! Gladyou didn't get hurt, always best to just let go of the pump, which is not your first instinct

Great score. I can't image how hard it was having to do that all by yourself. I thought you had a motorized cart like Tom?
