Don, what will it be feeding? S10 again, or is there another set of wheels we haven’t seen yet?

It is not as big as it looks in the picture. 20" (51 cm) diameter and 34" (86 cm) tall. I’m thinking standby generator. No worries about stale gasoline and cold weather starting.

Now you got me thinking … I might throw it in the bed of the s10 and plumb it into the cooler to see if it would run it. :grin:

Don, that is a amazing build. I’m hiding mine behind the barn. Oh wait I don’t have a barn. Yup, I lost this race too. Last place or not, we will all need lemons just to get rid of the SWEM on our faces.
I know Matt building something all the time I forgot to mention him.

I have them adjustable from the front of the unit so I will be playing with it. I am leaning to point down a little to maybe protect the nozzles more. I do not have height adjustment like you do.
