The rope conversion kit is designed to be a low maintenance alternative to the Lewis pumps and wicks. It simply bolts on the Lewis oiler frame and has all the features of the Pioneer Coupler Cattle Oiler. This allows the frame and square upright tank of the Lewis oiler to be used as a frame for the rope conversion kit.
“I am the cattle boss on the Spring Creek Colony near Walsh, Alberta. In the past I used Lewis Oilers and 10 years ago converted them to the rope oilers using the rope conversion kit. The reason I converted them was to get away from the high maintenance costs of the Lewis Oiler. I now have low maintenance oilers and converted all the Lewis Oilers and bought another eight rope oilers. They apply oil and insecticide and the old Lewis Oilers had to use diesel and insecticide due to the pump not being able to pump oil. I wouldn’t be with out them.”
