    ASA Remediation Reduction...

    So, I've heard from more than one source now that Mold Remediation is getting to be seen as basically a "scam" by some insurance companies and that the result could be that they seriously reduce what they will pay for because of it. Does anyone have related info on this? Thanks.

    ASA Be careful and save a life tonight (New Year's Eve)

    Save a life New Year's Eve. It's time once again to keep in mind drunk drivers' habits if you'll be doing any traveling New Year's Eve. And basically, it's pretty simple: STAY OUT OF THE FAST LANE. The reason is simple: Many, if not most head- on collisions which involve drunk...

    ASA New Features coming up on AcceleratedTruckmounts.com

    I mentioned before that the site is being totally revamped. When it's open to the public again later this month, we'll have Kohler engines, Roots blowers, Cat and General pumps listed. And they'll all be discounted. We'll also have our stand alone high- output heaters listed in both...

    ASA Truckmount heat evaluations...

    Um... I disagree. At 600 PSI through an 06 jet, it takes 30 seconds for flow through a 1/4" hose to travel 50 feet. So, it takes 1 minute for 100 feet, 90 seconds for 150 feet, etc. With the above in mind, a heat test should run for long enough to purge the "front end" of the hose, so...

    ASA Critique this...

    One of our customers was using the Dominator we have as a demo a few weeks ago. (He did get one for himself later, BTW.) And when he saw the Dominator video we did, he wanted to know if I'd modify it for him to use on his site. So I did. Here it is...

    "internet defamation or internet libel because the defendant’s statements were published, because they accused Scheff of illegal, immoral or unethical conduct, and because they caused damage to Scheff’s personal and professional reputation." Sounds like it applies to you as well, in...

    ASA Patent Granted

    So, FINALLY, after about 3 years of waiting, I've been granted the patent I applied for. It has to do with the heat exchange system I designed when the "Nemesis" was first built. Very cool... :cool:

    ASA Dominator vs. El Diablo...

    As the designer of the Dominator series systems, I've been getting inquiries about how it compares with El Diablo systems. El Diablo's are good, no doubt, but Dominators are simply, better in several respects. For one thing, Dominators come in 3 editions: 20 HP Kohler with 36 Roots DSL...

    ASA Viper baby pictures

    The Viper is the newest addition to our line of truck mounts. It's "entry level", meaning that it's a solid system, good for an owner- operator as his first system. Based upon the popular "Predator 36" system we built until 2007, the Viper has several improvements, including the open frame...

    ASA Predator Unleashed Video- Critique this

    This one has a couple of blemishes in it. For one, the oil- filter has a dent. For another, there was a disconnected hose underneath from where we changed fittings to re- route it and didn't re- connect it. So, this one's a "no- go", as far as making it available to the public. It's up there...

    ASA Video Editing...

    Well, we shot a video using a Flip about the Dominator 3047 system and it's 13 minutes long. (We're going to do some on each system and this is a learning experience, it seems...) YouTube has a limit of 10 minutes. What is a simple program I can use to edit it down to 10 minutes or less...

    ASA What makes a truck mount attractive to you?

    Does an enclosed system (i.e., with removable panels on the sides, top, etc.) help make a system more attractive, or does it help you feel more comfortable from a safety standpoint, or is it a nuisance from the standpoint of maintenance, or what? If you saw two systems sitting side by side in a...

    Truck Mount Attractiveness...

    "Prettier"... That brings up a question. Does an enclosed system (i.e., with removable panels on the sides, top, etc.) help make a system more attractive, or does it help you feel more comfortable from a safety standpoint, or is it a nuisance from the standpoint of maintenance, or what...

    How much for a truck mount?

    A recent survey by ICS determined that 3 out of 4 of the people who intend to buy a truck mount expect to pay $20,000 or more for it. Does that sound right to you?

    What do you look for in a stain and soil guard...?

    For those of you who do residential jobs, what do you look for when choosing a stain and soil guard: What technology? What dilution rate? What price? If you could buy a 12 to 1 super- concentrate, would you? And would you buy it by the case? Thanks, and feel free to elaborate...

    ASA Predator Unleashed: Final revision...

    Here's an idea of what you'd see if you saw a Predator Unleashed ($12,495,with a Kohler 20 and Roots 36 DSL, including accessories). It's the final model revision, which I've informally dubbed "v2". 1.) Engine slide- plate (Allows quick and precise de- coupling / re-coupling of the engine and...

    Hey! I need some advice regarding Stain Guard...

    So, here's the situation. We have a new product. It's called "Fiber Helmet", a fluropolymer stain guard. And we have a super- concentrate of it. We can make it to dilute at anything from 1 to 4... all the way to 1 to 12. So, I want to know how you guys apply it most often... diluted into a...

    Greetings: So far, the intro's have been short and sweet. So I'll follow suit: I've been in the industry since 1982, when I sold truck mounts and chemicals and taught carpet dye seminars for an Atlanta- based company that now no longer exists. Along the way, I saw many variations on...
