    Ed I understand the frustration. Things should be right when you get a machine that costs thousands of dollars to purchace. My experience was certainly not perfect. I have had to work on it a few times and really with a brand new machine you shouldn't . And now what really makes it tough is not...

    bane-clene

    While Bane-Clene systems are not powerful many people have made tons of money using them. I have a friend who has been operating a Paramount system since 1987. We upgraded the vacuum by adding a Lamb vac motor in parallel. The low pressure solution system works well in most cases. These days...

    2 stage 8.4 vacuum motors

    Heat definitely helps. Chemicals work better with heat. What we do not have to have is super hot cleaning solutions. As long as we are not cleaning restaurants we can get by with 150 degree solutions. Done it many times using good chemicals and a little agitation. Cold water is in my opinion...

    Russel I owned 2 White Magic slide ins back in the late 1990s. I really liked them . They are layed out so it is easy to do work on them if needed. Never had any problems with mine. Mine both had 45 Roots blowers but had the same tanks as you have on your rebel. One had an Onan 24HP and the...

    Russel it has been a while since I used a truckmount with a 33 blower but from what I remember anyway I think you will get a little better performance out of itt than the ETM. Reason being is that the lift is higher with positive displacement. My Prochem CubXL usually ran at 10HG or so when I...

    Help needed to find part E-Z TM

    Nothing really to much. We had to realign a couple of pulleys which parts of a couple of days. Just had to keep working at it . Now it runs perfect with great vacuum and heat running it at 2800-2950 rpms. I like running it at lower rpms .Less vibration and all my previous truckmounts ran their...

    Help needed to find part E-Z TM

    Sounds like your one of many who have a machine without a manufacturer. Sort of sucks. I hope that things work out for you. I have a similar truckmount with a 3L/36 blower and 20HP Kohler engine. Performs well but small things and issues have been disappointing and like you getting a hold of...

    I do not wish anybody to feel that I am insensitive to the problems some of you have had with these truckmounts. They were not engineered properly nor were some of the OEM parts as good as they should be. Then told to run engines at highest rpms equals problems early in the life of these...

    Even with those better parts running these engines at way too high rpms is a bad idea!

    Jeff I understand exactly what you mean. I remember when I was getting my TM built and even the owner encouraged us to run throttle at full speed. Like 3500 rpms! If people on this forum could understand that with heatexhanger technology half of the success has to do with control of truckmount...

    People over run these machines. The major brands install their own throttles to keep operator from running engine too fast! I believe a lot of problems can be avoided by just running the engine at a normal operating speed. Prochem ran most of their air cooled engines from 2800-3000. The throttle...

    A small builder truckmount? Was it Nick;s. A Hydramaster 575 is out of reach for many on this forum. Are you saying that EZ's truckmounts will likely breakdown and leave you in the lurch or what? say what you mean so I will understand.

    So are you saying that it will just fall apart no matter how I run it. Just bad engineering and poor quality. Might as well as tell me. Maybe I can get rid of it before building a business on it and then have nightmares. Not going to hurt my feelings.

    Just a few . less than a hundred. Haven't really got the business even going yet. Got some personal things going on and hopefully we will get them worked out. Otherwise I guess I will lose some money but worse things have happened to me and can.

    In defense of Nick. He is a truly good guy. He had a good thing going there and couldn't even keep up when I was making my decision. He has good intentions . Unfortunately the economy and other things slowed his business down. I don't know the whole story. He may not really be done yet and I...

    Not in the truckmount industry. Nick's mahcines may not be the answer but paying 20 grand for a truckmount is ridiculous. There is just not that much to them. I built a couple in the past with propane heaters and you have an engine turning a blower and a pump. It you get that right with a solid...

    I agree. I think he should just build machines and leave the marketing and management with someone very capable. Don't have any ideas but surely he could sell these good truckmounts for a good price and still make a profit. He needs exposure and investment I think. He hasn't been in business...

    I really don't think Nick is selling any machines lately. So that is a concern as if he actually quits building them then we may be on our own as far as fixing them. For the most part that is ok. They are very simple and if not run at full throttle can be very reliable. Usually there arer a few...

    I believe they do last longer . Ed Valentine CEO Cross American has replaced only a very few of these new Jaguar vacuum motors. They have been in production for a lot of years so you would think he would know as to wthether these new motors last longer. He says they do by a lot. I don't see any...

    did some testing

    I have tested several lamb ameteks and some electro vacuum motors and just as JIm M. has stated they seldom live up to the specs. Lift being the biggest difference. For instance the Electro 084A rated like 148 " l;ift and 112 cfms was more like 135" lift and 114 cfms. The ametek 122234-18 6.6...

    Just to be clear the Kleenrite inline power booster uses a single stage 6.6. Personally I think the Cross-American Power Booster with the 2 stage 6.6 would work a lot better. I have one and it is a lot more powerful than a previous CA Power Booster with a 3 stage rated 137"lift 100 cfms. A lot...

    Andrew I got to use a truckmount with a 56 blower and it did suck down harder but it was supposed to run at 16HG. Also the air flow was just awesome even at that level and we didn't have Teflon glides back in those days. Having owned several truckmounts with 3M blowers and 3L/36 blowers and 45s...

    did some testing

    Many medium to large truckmounts run at 14Hg. And some with like 56 Roots blowers may run at 16Hg. I personally just don't see any benefit beyond 14Hg even 12 Hg is plenty. Plus the lower the lift the higher the air flow so it sort of depends on the situation as to which is better more lift or...
