I really wish I'd bought a super slide type rig for my tractor mount driver. I bought the shaver 12 and it's just got more than you need driving pipe. I'm gonna sell it and by a three point driver with the hydraulic slide.
Sell for how much? Is drill pipe better or worse than the galvanized tube for price and quality?
Probably gonna try to get 6000.00
Still in good shape has hydraulic tilt.
Edit....I'm in the market for a gently used small seed drill
New drill pipe is better than most galvanized pipe. Simply because it's made of much higher carbon steel. I can drive drill stem in rock where most galvanized pipe will bend. Most galvanized pipe runs ss40 at the heaviest. Problem is there is a pretty good spread to spec ss40.
So there can be a good difference in wall thickness and it still be ss40. I spent 15 years building commercial chain link. Both as project super and subcontractor
Fort Worth Federal prison
State prison at Brownwood and venus
Us mint at fort Worth
Commanche peak nuke power plant ( where boogie works)
Texas motor speedway
Carswell air Force Base
Fort Army reservation
And dozens of high school sport complexes.
And the list goes on.
I know galvanized pipe. The lower quality and thinner walled pipe is no good. I want at least a quarter wall thickness and prefer 5/16 .
The 1/8to3/16 will bow between the ground and the horizontal. And of course it will also rust away faster.
Now you take to equal post of course the galvanized is better. Better value depends on your climate.
It ain't bragging if you can do it.
