One of the rare High Voltage jacks I believe. That or possibly home made?

Very cool find, did you buy it?

Did'nt buy it. I've got several old jacks around and 4 old rod line jacks. Kinda full up on them at the moment.

Years ago we pulled a few wells that were on rod lines. Then they did away with the power, I never thought to get one of those "Oklahoma" jacks (what they called them here). Wish I would of, it would have made a nice yard ornament.

Cool machine... wish I had it in my yard...

Legend- could I twist your arm to 'rescue' it for me? Sooner or later, I'll be passing through on business with a trailer...

Well, I have absolutely no idea what the value range of something like this is... I assume that since it's in the scrapyard, the LOWEST negotiable value would start at, or slightly above scrap value, and continue upward from there.

I figured that if I had one, I'd set it up as a display-on-wheels, that I could slide the ZC-118 onto for shows. I don't have an oil-well on my farm (it'd be cool if I did)... so other than that, it'd only be useful for pulling water... and with my well being 75', having a 7hp pumpjack would be somewhat of an overkill... it'd be something I'd do just... because I could...
