    Boss Optima Is Truly A Big Scam!!

    I am loath to turn down work, but I stopped doing anything with them. Every single transaction somehow involved me getting gypped: having to harass them repeatedly to get paid, and then underpaid (ie less than the agreed-upon amount) and very late (more than a year late sometimes)!

    Filter Cleaning Station?

    Thanks to all for responses! To clarify, this is for my own driveway back at the shop, not the customer’s driveway. After years of bending down and picking up filter garbage off the drivewayI figure there’s got to be a better way. I will try SRD’s suggestion.

    Here’s a long shot: Anyone ever purchase or construct some kind of filter basket cleaning station? The idea is to utilize an outdoor workstation near the driveway and quickly and conveniently remove pet hair etc. from the vacuum filter baskets. I would like to clean the truckmount vacuum...

    Duct cover workaround?

    Is there anyway to clean residential air ducts without taking the air duct covers off? Or at least not take some of them off? Floor duct covers are no problem, but those ceiling duct covers can be a huge pain. On large jobs especially we spend more time removing and installing duct covers than...

    Hydraulic Hose Crimping Machine?

    It’s getting really expensive to get my cleaning solution lines repaired. I want to get my own crimping machine or tools to crimp the typical 1000 psi solution line. Can anyone recommend a good crimping machine or tool to get? I’m willing to spend some $ if necessary for the right setup.

    3rd-Man jump seat for my Chevy Express Van

    Thanks so much for this post from several years ago! I didn’t know this jump seat product existed. I very often need to haul 2 workers with me and seating can be an issue.

    Home Advisor Sucking Worse and Worse

    I just called the customer prospect I got through Home Advisor. He had only been browsing on Home Advisor and was confused why they called him 9 times, plus my call. He had no interest in actually doing anything! I was charged $18 for this crap lead and Home Advisor again refuses to be fair...
