I'm trying to figure out my operating costs for a 2013 Cleanco compact 47, mounted in a 2013 Chevy express 2500. Does anyone have figures I can build off of? Thanks in advance!
Oxi is on to something here. Think about the money you are going to need to advertise and promote your business to your market. Plan for it.You're asking the wrong questions Padawan.
Dont try to figure out your operating costs, start figuring out what it will cost you to grow your business...
Since it's a Cleanco, I can do most maintenance myself, but I do have some options for mechs within a 4 hour drive.Gas is = 2-3 gph
Being a direct drive you have to have a TM mechanic to work on those things......
Some guys will tell you those are easy to work on.......others will tell you they are difficult.......
either way gotta line up a TM mechanic.......who knows that machine.............
Fuel, van maintenance, truckmount maintenance, stuff like that. I was just hoping someone would have averages that I could use, save myself some time.GPH burn is easy to figure out in your driveway, if that's what you want to know. Van engine or PTO parts wear or prorating it is virtually impossible to calculate. What costs are you after?
You'll notice that I BOUGHT the business. My dad was not kind enough to let me "inherit" it, nor did he give me a discount. Like I said, the Cleanco, rotovac 360, CMX/RX 20, standard wand when needed.hey cant beat that inherit the family business....
what equipment are you using now......
