    The plant has a high pressure rinse that you can drive through after your loaded. The water isn't too bad. I've gone through a couple of times but only rinse the tractor. Once I get everything cleaned up, I'm thinking of going all the way through at my last load to rinse off the dust for the day.

    The 1300 engine rpm was originally speced for my little 857 paragon. Was too fast for it I ran it @ 1150 engine for the two weeks I had it. Then someone decided they needed it worse than me late Friday night.

    It's stable but these things are very top heavy. Yes, I take ramps very slow and gently. A semi is WAY more stable than these 2 axle tractors with a set of top heavy doubles.

    Wow. That hose must've been jumping around like a snake on caffeine pills at that RPM. I run this Paragon at 850 for a silo. I can feel a steady flow of product with slight shaking of the hose. At 950 when I put my foot on the hose I can feel a surge and air pockets. The line pressure seems to fluctuate a lot at high RPMs too. Seems to take longer to unload at higher RPMs as well. I can't even imagine running it that high.

    Sounds like a common carrier kind of company.

    image.jpg Here's my set. I'm working on getting them cleaned up but I'm not losing sleep over it. A little here and there will go a long way.
