    Can you say; "BS?!"

    Over the years, all of us have heard the old saying that "a machine is only as good as its operator". I'm not only referring to the results, but also the way the machine is taken care of. How true. In fact, as a manufacturer, I have witnessed this to be true! Let me state an example. Now, I...

    Blake; If your wish and desire is to compete in this industry, then in order to do so, you will require some competitive results producing equipment. Bissel has its place in the consumer market. However, it is far bottom line for this industry and you will end up burning out if not, thrown out...

    Really miss the old TMF days!

    Johnny Bravo stated it clearly and directly which I agree with when he said: "Facebook didn't help things, but I watched the place decline before Facebook did it's thing." IMHO, The reason for this as Rob also recognized, were the influx of a few "trouble makers" with specific agendas. I...

    Pumptec 205 vs 207 pump

    Thanks, Ronman for that explanation. I would believe that the .110 cam would work just fine here in the States (120v). Hope the vinegar helps!!!

    Pumptec 205 vs 207 pump

    my cam bearing seems fine, but it's a 110 on a 1/3HP Baldor motor, which seemed to run fine, made some hammering noise, I see some mushrooming on the plunger, but the pressure was on again off again.---I would change the piston/plunger. Is a 110 cam a good match for a 1/3 hp motor?---Probably...

    All this mask crap is just like

    Just wonder how many Operators are wearing a face mask? And, I really wonder how effective they are since most everyone re-uses them. And, how about ones clothing? Do they wear a cap and wash that to after one use? Just how safe is the common person or is most of this safety "just-in-their...

    Portable Making funny sounds! Help

    Hard to say with limited information. However, here is what I would do: Eliminate the variables by not using your heater for a few jobs. Then see if your machine makes that sound again. I would guess that the heater could be cavitating and thus producing that sound. Hope this helps. Ed...

    Low Suction on Namco Husky?

    Here's a good start: 1. Sounds like there is an obstruction (clog) in your wand, perhaps in the barrel. Back flush it using a garden hose . Best; Ed Valentine

    You think you can trust the media

    I agree; most of these so called "journalists" are nothing than spewing their opinions rather than investigating and reporting the truthful news; good or bad. One doesn't have to be affiliated with either party to realize this. Just have to be smart, investigate, have common sense, and be honest...

    No calls

    I totally agree with Spazznout above. You must remember and realize that all businesses have their ups and downs, especially when new/upstarts. Even in "good times". However, use this particular time to your benefit. Review your strategy, the way you are set up to run your business, your...
