    Official Hydramaster Truckmount review thread

    I owned a 421, it was bulletproof and I neglected it.

    My motor blew up :( Can anyone tel me how many horsepower it takes to run a 56 blower?

    A rebuilt motor will almost never be as reliable as an original un-opened motor.

    Hands-on Rug Washing Class

    Outstanding class, I’ve taken it. Even if you never plan to wash a rug it will allow you to talk with authority about how they should be handled for in home cleaning.

    Boxer 421 valve clearances

    Leave them be. Unless the tec is a real pro you are asking for trouble.

    2 inch Sapphire Scientific wand

    In almost new condition, it came with my machine, I’ve tried it but I do almost entirely residential and it’s too unwieldy for tight spaces. It has a green glide with 1 use on it. Pickup only in Boston area $500 the glide alone was $180.

    Blue spots appeared after cleaning

    Did it happen anywhere the USOR was not applied?

    Suction comes and goes on my performer 405

    I think something is just blocked or the filter is getting water bound.

    would you take one?

    One time I was so starving hungry I ate some Jelly Belly jelly beans that were in a jar. That was 7 years ago and the same jar is still there. Who knows how long it was there before that

    Truck mount problems

    Ive had problems with mine and the guys there have been great. But my machine is down A LOT I wish that wasn’t the case. Phone calls don’t fix machines, it’s hard to not have a bad taste in your mouth when you are losing money because the machine is down. I think they are a good company that...

    Truck mount problems

    These machines shut down when the water box hits some really low number like 185. They live on the brink of shutting down. I’ve been through the runaround with mine. Pull the blue wire on the pump switch if you need to get through a job. And if all possible run live water from the house to the...

    Have you replaced thermal relief?

    Saphire 870 Shuts off

    Unfortunately common problem. If it’s a genuine overheat replace thermal relief. If its truly intermittent replace temp sensor and work your way out. You can remove the blue wire in the back of the pump switch if you need to get through the job.

    New 570 apex

    I think it’s pretty much a 570, either way it’s my next machine

    SS 570

    I’m guessing if we took a poll of who’s running HX vs Fuel and making over 100k it would be mostly guys running HX and those of the big 3 and butler nonetheless. And make money and do good work is what we are all looking to do in the end.

    Kohler Engine Weak Spark

    You can see if it’s charging by putting an amp meter on the battery terminals while running. Since that’s not an option you can take it off and look at it and see if it’s burned or damaged in some way. Also, make sure it’s getting 12v when Keyed. Koehler have had problems with them going.

    Mystery brown spots on wool carpet in fancy house

    The nose on the stair is a very common place to leave very wet when cleaned. You seem to know your customer but I wonder if someone else cleaned them and left them Wet. Either way in my experience stains always have a reason to be there and it’s usually obvious in retrospect.

    Your prices are too high...

    If you are a largely word of mouth business and the people who you are working for care about their reputation as well they always pay unless of course the results really are sub-par then you shouldn’t expect them to. We are fortunate to live in a place where spoken contracts carry a lot of...

    Water pressure problem

    Just get the right one from JonDon, that one doesn’t look right

    Hey everyone, I just wanted to see if anyone has done this successfully, I have a floor coming up and the customer wants a “strip and wax”

    Water pressure problem

    A new gauge is like 60 bucks and easy to replace.

    Boost All

    Hey Scott, while we are taking about boostall I have a questing. I typically never have problems with browning but I’ve used boost all on a couple occasions on light Carpets trying to get them to brighten up. I put 1-2 scoops on top of my normal prespray in a hydroforce. It seems the areas I put...

    Top 10 most reliable slide in’s

    I totally agree, Boxer 421 3500 hours. 1 pump, 1 diverter tube and many oil changes It was the most reliable piece of equipment I’ve ever run anywhere Paid 16k sold it for 4K and someone got a great deal. I hear bad things about Hydramaster these days but I think the 427 just gave the whole...
