Big and dumb, but not all that heavy.

4k lbs of 31' drill stem packed onto a 18' trailer. It felt pretty terrible over bumps. Anything over 65mph made it wanna wag. I have another 12k lbs to pick up. I'll be finding a longer trailer for the next load.

Get some chain binders and a 4ft section of tube with a hitch on it, stick the drill stem off the front and chain the hitch to it.

That truck has an 8' bed, he just needs to move the load forward. 18' trailer + 8' bed + 3' tongue length = only 2' hanging off the back of the trailer

chain trailer to back of pipes, then chain a hitch tongue to the front of the pipes

That's actually why the tailgate is off. We had it as far forward as possible. Definitely could have gotten it a little bit further with a bit more height. I was 2.5 hours from home and had determination working against me.

I typically don't make sketchy decisions like this. But when I do, I admit they're dumb.

So is that stuff dirt cheap or something? There are a few farmers that came back from delivering hay south with a semi load of it and are now making cattle/horse fences with it. I just can't figure how something that heavy can not cost a ton for fencing.

Open the back window and you won't have to hang any of it off the back of the trailer. Easy peasy.

I just bought 12 joints of 4inch pipe for $550. 40 footers. They had 2 3/8 that was going pretty cheap at the same auction.

Fencing, out buildings, generally any farm projects where heavy ass pipe is usable.

This is all 2 3/8. I gave a guy in North Texas $18 per 31' stick which weighs 200 lbs. That load was 20 sticks. Still have 60 more to get.

Come down here to Texas. Used up drill stem is cheap, it's decent quality heavy wall pipe. Lots of fences and pole barns built with it in this neck of the woods.

Is there a lifespan on it where they don't keep using it to drill?

The guy I get it from has literally a 10 acre lot FULL of equipment and steel and racks upon racks of this drill stem and sucker rods. Probably a few thousand sticks of varying sizes. It get the feeling that the oil business in Texas has left them with a gluten of surplus drilling equipment from the big shale gas boom 10 years back.

I might be wrong, but none of this stuff seems to be unusable.

I don't think the drill stem itself has a service limit but they do get bent or the pin and box threads get too far out of spec to use. The actual drill steel is very thick walled.

The steel I bought at auction was advertised as drill stem. That's a common misnomer. Its casing. NPT threads. If it was drill stem, then the 12 joints of 4.5" would have weighed 8-10k lbs.

I think the question wasn’t about the service life of steel tube. He wanted to know why it was taken out of service.
