    Ever bumped a small job for a large one?

    Water damage is about the only reason I’ll drop a job and will do that every time if needed. The person with their house full of water needs more help than the person with the dirty carpet imo but the day to day cleaning work I’ll never cancel one to accommodate the other.. first in, first...

    Jaguar 8.4 VS Bissell crosswave VS. Rug Doctor.......

    Really... why would you start this up again.. I totally agree with Johnny! When your last girlfriend broke up with you did she console you with these words ? “It’s ok, we can still be cousins”

    Jaguar 8.4 vs Mytee Escape ETM

    I guess opinions are like ars%#*~es, everyone’s got one but you guys are carrying on like bitter old women here. So many posts about the jag and now having a crack at Jim.. how many jobs could you guys have done in the time you’ve continued saying the same thing? I gave you my suggestions...

    THE BEST CRB MACHINE

    Good stuff.. now you’re cooking with gas.... or diesel in your case lol.. when ya said about running the jag still for the pump does that mean you have the means to power it in the van? If so cannibalise the machine and rob the pump from it to leave in the van.. I don’t know what the pump is but...

    THE BEST CRB MACHINE

    If you’ve got the room in the van for a jag and the air hog etc wouldn’t it make sense to ditch the jag, carry a freshwater tank in the van where you’d have sat the jag.. run a pump drawing from the tank and just take the airhog to the door or inside for vac recovery/pump out ? Only issue would...

    THE BEST CRB MACHINE

    Depends what else he’s got.. I just hook up to the garden hose tap outside the home then run water to a 12 volt pump inside the van- thru the little giant and all the van carries is 150 ft of solution line.. for residential it would be very rare to need more here ... waterhog would be a great...

    THE BEST CRB MACHINE

    Either/or will be a good bet but I’d lean towards the airhog/waterhog so you can park at the door to get unreal performance. I don’t have any of these machines but the theory is good. I’m in NewZealand but have imported the lx motors to run in a couple of machines we would rarely need to run...

    Best financing interest rate for new TM

    It sure isn't hard when you've got years under your belt, I'll be coming up 20 years in the industry and I'm still gladly learning. All Jim is doing is using his years of experience and the tricks he's learned along the way to get his results so you'd do well to save yourself time by listening...

    What do you tell clients to do to prepare before arrive?

    Please hide any valuables and lock your draws, the new tech I'm sending might be dodgy but he does really good work after a joint

    Those that pre-vacuum

    Sometimes I'll try to "save time" and not vacuum...I usually wish I hadn't. I'm not one for doing more than the job needs but generally each step you do makes the next easier..price your jobs accordingly.

    The Best Portable ETM Ever Designed - Eletric Truck Mount Portable

    The two motors that you have the y pipe on, instead of running the y pipe hose to the waste tank it needs to hook onto the exaust of your third motor that has the black and red hose on it...then put that black and red hose to your wastetank then sit down, relax and enjoy the show

    Rotovac New motors

    No worries, sometimes alone and sometimes not.. really doesn’t matter which I guess.. at the end of the day I prefer dwell time before extraction so I don’t feel like I’m losing much doing things in that order

    Rotovac New motors

    I think there's being super fast then there's just using your time well. I run everything modular so the first thing I'll be doing after preinspecting the job is hook up the garden hose and fire up the little giant then i'll bring the solution line/hydroforce to the door and leave it there while...

    How to Price Gutter Cleaning?

    I'd disagree, sure they wont be spotlessly clean but they can be cleared very well with a gutter vac, if you can flush and vac at the same time its much easier to clear wet debris with a vac than dry. as far as downspouts go you should be able to hear if they are clear with the vac but they can...

    Which portable

    No worries, yes it's surprising how good it feels... got a difficult access job i'll need to run 200ft to this week coming so it should be a good test.

    Which portable

    The 3x 8.4 setup seems to work really well, the additional airflow is definitely helping! here's a video of the 3 motors at 150 ft clearing some gutters..plenty of power

    Which portable

    Is this the configuration you mentioned earlier that you were working on? Thanks a lot for the info.. I’ll definitely setup and try this out.. that sounds like exactly what I want.

    Which portable

    Wow! Just so I understand it’s 3 motors total the single 8.4 in the front with the parallel pair pulling off it. That sounds like the ticket!

    Which portable

    You haven’t tried 3 lx in series at all? I wonder what the numbers would be like. I’m thinking about hooking 3x 8.4 in series for a laugh this afternoon and might try an 8.4 behind the lx series setup. I’ve got no testing equipment but it will be interesting what sort of weight either setup may...

    Do you reinstall carpet after flood water extraction?

    Haha I totally get that.. I hate attempting laying with a passion so I much prefer in place drying and loading up on the gear but if you’ve got the skill set then it’s got to make life much easier!

    Do you reinstall carpet after flood water extraction?

    The rules for you guys over there will be alot more stringent than here but thats certainly changing. the claw is a great tool and will destroy what you can remove versus the wand only but my preferred tool is the rover. It`s been a long time since I did the ASD course but from memory where you...
