    Best wand for picking up floor finish with shop vac.

    I have a linoleum floor with a small amount of floor finish on it. My plan was to use a 16 gal 6.5 Rigid to extract it so I don’t get stripper and floor finish in my truck mount. What is an acceptable slurry wand? I see some with a squeegee head on a bend Wand. Is there a certain gecko...

    Where to find a waste tank?

    I found a little 3.3 blower for $20 and I thought about making a 14-16hp unit. The biggest hang-up is finding an aluminum waste tank. I have found some aluminum fuel tanks for boats that I thought might work with some welding and modifications. I was also concerned if they would be thick...

    I found a used Tennant 1260 floor machine locally for $150. Looks good in the picture and is supposed to work fine. Are these good units? How does it perform on tile and grout?

    Wood floor discoloration

    Any ideas on what happened to this floor? It seems like the floor is lighter in the areas that were covered and darker in the uncovered areas. There wasn’t a cleaning agent that would remove any of the darkness on some small test dots. Lady was a heavy smoker.

    2002 Butler just rolled over 10k hours

    The old girl rolled over today 10k hours today. It also rolled over 200k miles yesterday. The original 5.7 engine made 167k before blowing a head gasket. Transmission is still holding up well. The cat pump has been replaced once to my knowledge and the 5.8 blower is 10k hours deep.

    Business door mat service

    There seems to be a lot of places of business that have custom printed door mats. Does anyone offer a door mat cleaning service? I believe Cintas offers a door mat service but I think they rent you the door mat.

    4.5 blower too much for 20hp?

    I am currently running a 3.3 blower behind my 20hp Kohler. I found a used 4.5 blower for a decent price and was wondering if my 20hp Kohler would be up to the job. I used a 5.8 Butler system for years before I bought a affordable unit and went out on my own. The 3.3 gets the job done but with...

    Fuel Pump PSI Kohler 20hp

    My Kohler Command 20 needs a new fuel pump. It has a Facet on it now that is on its last leg. What PSI range am I looking for in a new fuel pump? From the research I've done it seems that a 2-3.5 PSI fuel pump is what I'm looking for. Sound right? I am looking at a Mr. Gasket fuel pump at...

    Fuel pumps mounted vertically or horizontally?

    I have a 20hp kohler command powered custom made truck mount. If it runs for a while and then gets shut off it doesn't like to start back up until it cools down.. Im guessing this is due to a vapor lock issue. The fuel pump was mounted horizontally on the truck mount frame when I purchased it...

    Car Muffler or Blower Silencer?

    I have a 3.3 blower with what I believe is a car muffler to reduce blower noise.. The muffler looks to have seen some hours and needs a sound reduction. There was a new glass pack muffler laying around and i attached it to the end of my current blower muffler and had very minimal sound...

    Changing the pulley size 3.3 and 20hp.

    I purchased a used no name truck mount earlier this year. 20hp kohler, cat pump, 3.3 blower. It does fine but after looking around it appears 20hp is a bit much for a 3.3 blower. I looked at the pulley sizes this morning. They are both 8 inches in diameter. Does that mean when I am turning the...
