    Just like Michael Jordan, might be coming out of retirement

    Possibility of the wife being able to retire early so I might be back in the game bites! Sold the 870 about 6 months too soon it looks like. Starting to look around for a truck mount setup. I left the business doing $100k plus working part time and will do it again but bigger this go around...

    400 hour, 12 month review of the SS870

    About this time last year, I was pissed as a tornado in a trailer park (thanks to Mater.. lol). My Amtex had died and I called my sales guy asking about a SS570 or the 870. I was ready for a new unit that would not have the issues I had with my other. Seeing that there was only $4k difference...

    Amtex dies again, 2x in 2 days... Buyer beware

    As you all know I bought a 2nd Amtex in Feb of 2014. Roughly $19k. The newest fire breather, right? After about 270ish hours, my pump belt burned up, seized the water pump, burned up the valve on the Northstar heater etc. The pump out worked for about a month, had to replace that too at no...

    For you new guys wanting to clean stone......

    I was at Home Depot last night and came across this so called Travertine. You at some point will run into this horrid nightmare of a stone, if you can even call it that. Depot should be ashamed to even have this on its shelf...

    Topical all over the FU*&ing place!!!

    I looked at a home today that has topical coating all over the damn place. About 1100 sqft in the front exterior foyer, then his shower is a mess, topical something all over his pool deck and vertical walls. The slate in the front can be pressure washed and scrubbed with a grit brush, no...

    Check your dryer vents!!

    Last night my son came and got me and said that there was a bad smell in the laundry room. Smelled like something was burning. So I took the back plate off of the dryer and this is what I found. If we had left the house for dinner or to head out, we might have come home to our house on fire...

    Your best stripper for a slate floor??

    I have about 3000 ft of topical to get off of slate and concrete. I remember a while back @john gerding posted about some stipper that he liked. All the products I have tried are not strong enough. What is your favorite stripper? I think there is some good stuff from Midwest Chemical, but...

    Twin TH-40's w HOT water, scrub w a 175??? No Way....

    Hey fellas, another reason I love the 870 is the fact that you can dual wand with tile spinners and have hot water. The second clip was from a house today that Todd and I did. Sprayed down some cleaner and went to work. We dont ever use a 175 to scrub grout lines. I think only once or twice...

    Going out tomorrow to look at the pool deck. HO says that it looks foggy?? I am thinking a topical but he says the states enhancer. First thought is hack applied too much. Next question, I have never taken off enhancer as it is meant to go into the stone. I am thinking the guy is...

    First day running the SS870..

    The video is not the best. Just quick clips of some cleaning.. No editing, no fancy stuff. I am super happy with the machine so far. Granted only 7 hours so far in 2 days. Dual wanded with Todd, ran solo by myself and so on. I had a lack of suction with Todd the other night and took it...
