    Re: Weight scale exemptions

    Yes they do so run the night weekend hours. Most are closed and most DOT officers are home in bed not thinking about that questionable looking bee guy driving down the road.

    Re: Weight scale exemptions

    i agree Jim but they are not detaining us on the side of the road. I had a DOT guy pull me over in Va last year just because he couldnt figure out what i was hauling until he was walking along side...

  8. Re: If gas prices stay low ($2/gal. aver.) what impact will it have for you as a BKP

    So gas jobs probably are good in areas where it flat as flat. I have seen some local folks run their gas jobs at extremely high RPMs just to keep it pulling up a hill. Besides everyone knows real...

    Proper maintenance on the old pwer strokes get them to the 500k mark too. Plenty of dead 7.3l at 90000 or less due to abuse and improper maintenance.
  10. Re: If gas prices stay low ($2/gal. aver.) what impact will it have for you as a BKP

    keep it maintained and reasobaly clean and good looking. Drive around something that looks like total junk attracts that un needed attention
  11. Re: If gas prices stay low ($2/gal. aver.) what impact will it have for you as a BKP

    idk. I dont see why not. I have a 2012 ram 5500 with 38k on it now so ask me in 9 more years. Maybe by then my 400k truck will have 800k on it.

    . Jim that is an excellent point. Mone must take into consideration the added expense of the engine. However for me, I like tomstick with diesel. I have over 400k one one truck, 280k on my diesel...

    Re: Is EFB a problem in your Apiary?

    Joe what do you suggest is the best approach in handling EFB? I have noticed a newer strain with initially similarities of AFB on field tests only to have 2 lab tests show EFB.
