Anyone know what happened to this company??? I used their wands and a friend of mine had a big red machine, noisy but powerful. Last I knew Kevin moved to gardena and I thought they would finally get their crap together, did they finally fall apart???

Does anyone know how to find either of the former owners of Bates Engineering, Linda or Michael Bates? Or Kevin who worked for them? I have three Big Red machines with very low hours that have not been used for over ten years and have been in storage. These are heavy duty, industrial grade machines, not the lighter duty machines that sell today. Does anybody know anyone who may be interested in these machines? Two are double man units, and one is single wand. All run on diesel fuel.

I'm sure you can sell them. I'd post more information and some pictures as well as how much you want for them right here for starters.
