good point, shane how do you advertise? i have a truck mount now i was thinking of trying 1 year temp yellow pages or 411.ca that is where all my competition is getting there jobs from guaranteed 100%Only in the busy months chief, not 12 months a year.
We work year round.
So no $60k a year is not even close to $150k...
thanks for the thanks im actually happy well kinda now just another expenseFalcans can sure mess up a good thread. I was going to congratulate him on changing over to a gas TM but I wasn't sure it was a good thing.
I used mine every day this week Harry. It's pulling 330 cfm, 10 hg, 50 gallon waste tank with a 1000 psi cat pump all on two cords. The biggest pain in the arse is plugging in.
im selling it for 500.00 i have some hoses ect i can include for local customers i will include 100 ft of vacuum hose and solution hose built into the hose 50 gallon water tank no wand just hoses savage beast and water tank 500.00Falcans, are you interested in selling your Savage? Could you post pictures of it?
Thanks , Paul
I have seen this same thing mentioned by a lot on TMF.A Gas TM would be nice, but I just don't have the funds to afford one. That is why i am building an ETM, yea it won't have all the bells and whistles and be able to knock out as much work, but for an owner operator it's good enough for me. And at $800 to $1K built, capable of tile and grout from 0 to 1000 PSI you just can't go wrong. I'm not really interested in going into huge debt with a business like this where you got cut throats and everyone and their dog tries to go into business. their are just way too many carpet cleaners in my area. most of them don't even know what they are doing...lol
last i heard will probably has received it already. I think he ended up getting it, or is going to get it. that's what he told me on the thread about it.Thanks for casting a vote for Will's situation. I think he may still be in a coma from the long time screwing. If I didn't like Will so much that VT situation would be funny.
My thoughts on the one I just bought are to be able to plug in most of the time and when I cannot I can use a propane generator. For me, the Escape is easier to work on, understand, troubleshoot and repair. Vac motor blown? No worries I have one ($100) and can change it with 2 or 3 tools in 15 minutes or so. Pump goes, no worries I have an electric pressure washer with a regulator in van as a spare (under $150). Waste tank pump dies, no worries I have a small sump pump to get me by. I love being prepared and the ETM makes it easy for me.Thanks for your response. I was being mostly sarcastic with the poll. But I am also interested to hear from people that actually have the units and use them on a regular basis. A lot of people have heard that they exist and believe they are a good idea I am just not convinced they will measure up to the claims and comparisons to traditional Truckmounts.
Some of the major TM brands are now producing propane engines for power plants so why the need for generator to power electric?
It is yet to be seen if these systems are cheaper to operate and maintain over the life expectancy of a good old proven truckmount design.
