KBS I did a similar thing with a 800 gal honey wagon. All I can tell you is it was loud and it's an instant thing when it happens.

shame the vent system failed. What kind of car was it?
It was brown. Who knows. But I can tell you this much, everytime I see a woman in a sweater, I think of her and everytime I get lonely, I tell myself, no, don't let her move in.

and every tmim find out that he didn't know that he had to open the vent on the tank
Yep, glad that's never happened to me. Yepper, real glad.

Now, there's got to be some good stories behind that tank car and the honey wagon. How about it?

We were doing a rebuild on the nursery building and had cleaned all the solids out of the shallow pit inside the building. The shallow pits on that building fed into a deep storage pit that's about 16 feet deep. Any how I was sucking up the last load out of that pit and was thinking that it was taking too long to load. I had hopped off the tractor and walked back to the pit opening to check what was happening. About the time I got right beside the tank, my hand was on the tire even, it collapsed and scared the crap out of me! In hindsight the pressure/vacum guage wasn't working and trying to suck up the thicker manure was the cause of my soiled shorts. We never pulled more than 15"Hg on the guage. I checked the guage later with an automotive vacum pump and it maxed out at 10" when I actually had 25" on it.
Thinking back on when it colapsed. The tank caving in was instant, I was actually looking at it when it happened. It went from fine to caved in so fast I couldn't see it happen. The noise would probably be similar to a standing next a 105mm howitzer. An experience I hope to never see agian.
I did repair that turd hearse by cutting out the top and welding a new piece of 1/4" steel that we had rolled into the top half of the tank. That was 20 years ago and a neighbor is still using it.
