Homesteader , Sorry didn't see your post on your
well driving But here's a way to save alot of
sweat on your next one , as long as you have a tractor .
Make your self a tripod for over the well .
then make a swivel that you can bolt on a lug of a rear tire and a hook on one of the outer bolts
bent in a way that will catch a rope and let it slip off ,
Now park the tractor out a bit jack up the back tire with the swivel and hook on (set the other brake and block it ) run a rope through the swivel ,up through a pulley on the top of the tripod and down to you driver now put the tractor in low, slow as you can idle it and let the hook catch the rope on the well side and slip
off on the other side .
hold the rope and feed it as necessary and make
sure your guide is long enough so's to keep the
driver banging on the pipe ,
I use a drive coupling on top with a steel plate on top of that .
you can tell when you hit water by pouring water down the pipe . it will hold water untill your
drive screen gets in water , Water won't stand on water ,
