Sugaring season is about over here,the 2100 Sapmaster gathered over 3500 gallons of sap and we made a little over 70 gallons of syrup. Now for cleanup. Take about 4 days to clean everything up, and then we will be using my brother Rays J5 Bombardier and bombardier tracked trailer to glade out some of the orchard and replentish our sugar wood supply.

Bruce,We hadn't sugared the last 2 years,last year we had a chance of flooding and all my buckets would have gone down the pemi.The last year we sugared we made around 56 gallons of syrup from 2400 gallons of sap . the sugar content was really low this year,but the quality of syrup was excellent!!!! even the B grade we made last has excellent taste.

Love the 2100 Sapmaster. My much better half and I have a running discussion over the use of the syrup. I insist that it is a beverage, her, not so much.

Thanks for your invaluable contribution to society. Boiler Lives Matter!
