    Power Freak,

    I'm interested. Do you run any loads down south into Texas, Louisiana, Arkansas, or Oklahoma?

    Also, please e-mail me at stinerspecialtransport@yahoo.com. I'm interested in knowing what percentage you pay of the load to O/Os with power only.

    Thank you for your help.

    Toby

    I was a mechanic for a guy hauling bulk tankers. And got my wings driving and learning on them.
    As far as 9000. For brand new equipment installed its fair price.

    Some things to consider
    1. Is there someone to help you with the operation LEARNING PROCESS (unloading of the tank)
    2. These are under pressure. If u dont dump all the valves, and then pop a dog loose on the hatch it'll take your head clean off.
    3. TYPE OF SAND DEPENDS ON HOW FAR U HAVE VALVE OPEN WHILE UNLOADING SO PIPE DONT CLOG. EX. ZIRCON VERY HIGH IRON CONTENT CLOGS QUICK.
    4. THESE TRAILERS REQUIRE CONSTANT MAINTENCE
     
    stinerspecialtransport Thanks this.

    got 2 old workhorses there before the stalions which are before the drums. one of them is ported with melt plugs the other needs to be timed (minor) got the drive lines the pto,s and other stuff related . the end plates are good on both. the untimed one has the most hrs on it (1k-2k) thats a guess the melt plug one has low hrs since over hauled around (500) if you are still looking these are 660 cfm and i unloaded right next to a 880 cfm drum lbs for lbs including frac sand might have been the way i had the system setup but they worked good for me.
