    You think you can trust the media

    I agree; most of these so called "journalists" are nothing than spewing their opinions rather than investigating and reporting the truthful news; good or bad. One doesn't have to be affiliated with either party to realize this. Just have to be smart, investigate, have common sense, and be honest...

    No calls

    I totally agree with Spazznout above. You must remember and realize that all businesses have their ups and downs, especially when new/upstarts. Even in "good times". However, use this particular time to your benefit. Review your strategy, the way you are set up to run your business, your...

    Air Duct or another Truck Mount?

    Spazznout; I respect your answer here and IMHO, you are one of the fortunate ones who has developed that segment. However, you are unusual; one of a kind. And that's a compliment! I make the comment above because I know of a Gentleman who is in the Heating & Cooling business (20 years) with a...

    Air Duct or another Truck Mount?

    IMHO: Not much demand for Duct Cleaning. "Out of site; out of mind" theory. I would opt for the TM.

    Portable Preassure Stuck!

    There are two different components which can adjust pressure: 1. Regulator; or, 2. Unloader. These two components will operate opposite of each other. It appears that particular machine has an Unloader.

    Mx2 jaguar shorting out on vac2

    Rich; Sorry to hear this because those particular MX motors have been very very reliable. Not having much information here, I could rule out water dripping on exposed electrical components within the base because they are protected. Other than a electrical spike on location(rare but happens)...

    Problem with Jaguar 8.4 vacuum life

    Something does not sound right, Tom. Never heard so many vac motors going down on any machine period. Where did you purchase the vac motors? Wonder if they were the models which are over-amp? Where they 120v, or 240v and where do you plug them into? I was told that you even plugged one in direct...
