    Well... I finally did it!

    Thanks guys. The TM got a good workout on the first day. So much upholstery... It was was without doubt the largest job I'd ever done without a helper. I left as the sun was going down. But, so good to have 70 gallon waste tank. So good to have heat without worrying about popping fuses. So...

    Well... I finally did it!

    After 4 years of years of running buckets and portables on hot tap water I have finally purchased my first truckmount. It's a great feeling. I feel as though I've earned it and somewhat had no choice in the matter in the end. My body couldn't take it anymore as the business and work load...

    People sure do love their SS 370's. I have to admit that is the one I really do want to get. Edit: And I wanted it before the fancy new black one even came out ;)

    Cheers bro. I had a good look at the Judson. Would have to import to Australia but I have not written the idea off. Would probably be the best machine in the long run.

    Entry Level TM vs Mid Range TM - How Much Better?

    Hello, In the (Entry Level) corner I have the SS Rage and the HM Boxer 318. In the (Mid Range) corner I have the SS 370 and the HM 423s. The limited specs that I've read about these machines is not really pushing me to want to spend an extra third of hard earned on getting the mid range...

    Help! Pump Losing Pressure. Why?

    Okay dudes, I'm back and gonna try to answer every thread I had created and abandoned. I got the portable fixed - me and my brother fixed it. It never was the pump.
