    Power Vacs Portables or Electrical

    I just came across hyper vac system, the portables put out 5000 cfm of filtered air that's pretty decent plus no lugging hoses all the way from the truck. Other than the compressor air line I guess. Think I might pull the trigger on one. I keep getting calls to clean air ducts so I think...

    Growing strategy

    Hey guys I thought I'd inquire to you that have grown out of a 1 truck operation. I'm currently a 1 man show but my business plan has always been to grow beyond that. I am constantly busy and growing! How can you guys weigh in on either selling my current 1 wand 370 (300 hrs) and replacing...

    If you do a lot of commercial....

    I can only wiegh in on the Bonzer but I think the price point wins out between the standard Zipper and Bonzer...again only one sided review here but for practically the same theory of cleaning your paying at least double if not triple the price for the Zipper?! By theory I mean that essentially...
