Hi Guys, I totaled my beloved Ford Van, I was rushing around and I hoped out while it was not in park, (extremely careless) and it rolled over a hill and was wrecked.
Been a hard week, looks like I will end up buying a new Butler to get back on line.
My van was insured and will be covered. My...
I applied for and received the PPP loan, I took it as a sole proprietor.
It’s based on what your net business profit (line 31 Schedule C) was for last year.
The nice things about the loan is, unlike unemployment you can take it then work as much as you’re able.
Anyone who makes a truck mount needs to be ready for nonstop abuse.
This is the response just from pictures of the machine, now imagine when people buy it, abuse it every day then it breaks.
I wonder who they will blame
It looks like a beautiful machine but people do unspeakable things to...
Scotch Guard is bad for you.
It has been sold to cleaners just like cleaners sell it to the customer.
I don’t think many cleaners make an effort to apply it so it will be effective.
I think it’s better to make your up-sells in other ways.
Gutter cleaning, or any ladder work is extremely dangerous. Don’t do it for $40 an hour. It’s not worth it. It was my first job as a kid, my boss fell and shattered his heel. Changed his life.
I offer it here in New England in the fall. If you go up there, just make sure you do a nice job and...
Once you make the mix I would sponge it on instead of spraying it so you can minimize chance of overwriting, rinse with low PSI and dry well.
Fabric shampoo mixed properly with a splash of brown out does not necessarily need to be rinsed, you can just agitate with a brush and vacuum dry but...
I’m sure @scottwarrington will chime in.
Haitian cotton is not in production anymore.
But you can make your own by mixing fabric shampoo and brownout.
I’m sure you can achieve similar results with another 7 PH or less shampoo and a reduced.
I’m following this. That’s really tough, I’ve cleaned a lot of wool and had a lot of close calls.
Whatever way you re-clean. Once you get that stain to disappear run multiple fans and just sit and watch the rug dry. When things are dried out completely mystery problems are usually sent back to...
1998 Chevy Express Butler
1998 Express 3500 5.7
I had purchased this as a second van.
I brought it for NH State inspection yesterday and it failed for various items. In total about $1500 dollars of work, quoted by a reputable shop.
The frame and underbody are actually...
If you can figure out what year it is that would be useful.
Early models had Briggs and Stratton’s that were bad.
I personally like the air cooled Kohler. It has hydraulic lifters and liquid oil cooling. Mine doesnt leak or burn any oil.
The thermostat on the panel of newer machines have a...
I have one I it a lot, I had a sensor issue and an install issue that were resolved a long time ago. I have 1500 hours on mine.
I do almost exclusively rugs and it’s great for that. It’s like a Sapphire 370 with a bigger motor and pump.
I just picked up this butler for cheap
It has not been cared for but runs fine.
4500 on the machine
109k on the van
It’s going to just be a backup for now.
The rockers are rusted but the floor of the van is good.
What maintenance items should I take care of?
I think the blower may be on...
I’ve had one for 10 years that I run on every single job. It must have 50,000 thousand hours on it.
They dry unbelievably fast but you need to move them because they won’t reach a whole room like an air mover may
I’m sure their salesman was willing to say whatever to get the job and it seems your customer was vulnerable to their sales tactics.
In my limited experience they have done a good job with oversight. Credit where credit is due.
It will probably be subbed to an o/o with a few accounts who they...
