Default Fairbanks 208 and a Squeaky Pumping Unit



I see a lot of pumping units while I am working, and I like to shoot a little video when I run into a 208. The pumper needs to give the unit a good shot of grease.

When it squeaks you can drive onto the lease and roll down the window and hear if you need to go over and do anything or if it will be good for another day.
