Then congrats. Good luck with that.No I do not think his threats are scary but what comes around goes around. I am sure not going to stand there and let someone fuk me or my business over. I almost got fuked over by one TM manufacturer but they are the ones who got fuked not me and I was totally legal about it. Next one that tries is going to get an ass kicking with it. That's why I will not buy another TM unless it is from Nick. I can trust him.
Ok...this is me begin friendly:
You started this thread with the intention of stirring the waters, I get it. Its all friendly. But lets remember the facts.
1.There are documented post by EZ owners of pump seals going out shortly after receiving a new EZ. The fact that you have never replaced a pump in 1000 hours is great. That doesn't mean that all EZ machines are as reliable. Also, have you done any pump maintenance, replace seals, check valves or other?
2.You posted your "Friendly" competition, knowing that no one would accept the terms, thus allowing you to make the claim that everyone was afraid, so by default EZ is king. In reality, if any CC took your bet, I would say one of two things, either they are CRAZY, or Perhaps it was Bob the steam Guy, that had more money than he needs. The fact is, this isn't Las Vegas, and no business owner in their right mind would accept such an offer...even if they were entering a 100K vortex against a portable. We are business owners, not gamblers. Any business owner that IS a gambler, will not be a business owner long.
3.Hmmm, bigger engine, same price. Cheaper price is not usually the best route when buying things. You get what you pay for. I can go to harbor Freight and
buy a cheap power tool that last one use, and then have to buy another. That is great if I only have a one time use for something. If it is a tool that I am going
to be using everyday...I am not going with the cheap HF tools. It isn't cost effective. Usually when the same type of item is being sold cheaper...there is a reason. It may look good, it may last a little while...but when you look closely, there is usually a reason things are cheap. As I stated, you get what you pay for.
4.My post acknowledged nothing about EZ heat. I do, however, believe that from what other owners have said on this and other forums, that the EZ machines are experiencing many issues on ranging areas. Owners have reported pump problems, engine problems, wood in heat exchangers and one report of the machine burning
to the ground...van and all. Maybe some of the areas have been addressed, maybe they haven't. The fact are, that operators of EZ machines, have documented these different problems with THEIR EZ machines. The fact that yours is working nicely....consider yourself fortunate.[/quote
I think Ben at Amtex needs to chime in and step up! Nick and Ben can have a friendly competition and stream it live for all to see. That would be great. Nick, are you in? Ben?
Agreed. There is a difference between being sue happy and protecting ones good name. Bob threw a lot of mud and has now disappeared... if it were any manufacturer I would recommend they protect the name they worked hard to create...Wouldn't you?The cause isn't in dispute according to the poster right below you.
If there was a forum where potential carpet cleaning customers were hanging out and they said jewelry "dissappeared" when you were in their house, but they didn't flat out call you a thief, how would you respond?
Great. Let's get this thing off the ground. Ben from Amtex, please stand up! This is for fun and bragging rights. Regardless, we all love a competition and regardless of who wins wouldn't we respect both manufacturers for stepping up and having full transparency? I think Nick and Ben would create a lot of Buzz for their business and some wonderful exposure! This would be a win/win in the end for both parties! Maybe TMF could sponsor it in some way? More posts, more $$$ for TMF...I, am in for a friendly competition .
