to take water from the creek to pump up the slope a bit into dams and stock watering tanks. I've found a few hydraulic rams for sale online. I would be very interested in any lessons learnt from using this technology.



Hi, do you really mean 60 metres? or should that have been 6 metres? Either way you will have no problem pumping up water to probably 7-10 times the fall. In answer to your question the only real problem I have had in the two years since I built mine is rubbish entering the pipe to make sure you have a decent screen on the inlet.
Building a ram pump is one of the best things I have done and would definitely recommend it. I have a couple of videos up if you are interested. https://youtu.be/pz78AA_cSjc

Any specific questions please don't hesitate to ask
