All she has? Apparently that is all she needs. 9 pro fights, 9 wins, 9 arm bars, total fight time for these 9 wins, 9 minutes 20 seconds. This fight won't go past the first round. If it goes half way past the first round I'll be impressed.
I agree but come on...when she fights cyborg that will be the day we will all know just how good she is!

I have question about mods. I also upgraded engine and blower. I had trouble with engine mount holes (easy) getting right belts to fit (not so easy) taller blower lining up with silencer. and not to mention the mounting bracket for the blower was different also. I had a time. I will be doing almost the same thing as you. But I need smaller tm with same performance. Was the 100a fairly easy to upgrade engine and blower?

How long is that blower inlet hose? bet that set you back a few bucks. Very interested in performance of you mods to machine. great idea. Also is it a kohler you stuck in there?
I to need to overdrive pulley. I am under driven at the moment. I was looking at graingers pulley selection. It's a good idea on any set up if you ask me.

Really easy machine to upgrade. I am eventually going to go to a 25hp and 47 blower. The pulley mod was tricky because I couldn't just order a 3 slot pulley I had to get three individual pulleys for the pump, blower and burner and each had to be sized correctly.

Performance is very good for a 4 blower and the heat is insane...

Really . That will fit? Was the blower to tall? I need to start looking closer at these old prochem's. I could have got one for 1500 one time. Damn it.

im thinking of selling my truck and purchasing a trailer im thinking of going with single axle 3500 pay weight load the dual axle is 1,000 more...... my mini van can pull 4000lbs np or sell minivan and buy a sprinter small version and have the seats for my kids hate having 3 vehicles just want a trailer so i can park along the road at the customers house and reel the hoses in from the road instead backing in.

Im thinking something bigger 7feet by 14 because i do run a cleaning business with my huge floor scrubbers

I started with a 6X10 trailer too exactly like Harry. I still have the trailer and use it now for picking up and delivering rugs. 6X10 is the perfect size I think, somehow it even seemed to have more room in it than my van does. I would not go any smaller. Definitely get one with the side door. I started off with the machine at the side door ad the hose reel in the back but tongue weight was too heavy to pick up by hand so I put the machine in the rear of the trailer and my hose reel out the side door and loved the setup. When I pulled the trailer I always parked in the street anyway so I pulled up to the house with my trailer side door lined up with the house front door or garage door and could pull the hose straight into the house real easily. With the machine in the rear I could pick up the tongue of the trailer easily with one hand and move it where ever I wanted to.
I like the idea of the machine in the back now for that reason if I ever get a trailer.

I pull my 7x14 with a Mega Cab Dodge Dually. Plenty of room for the kids and wife. I like having the extra space for my drying equipment and floor machines as well. The biggest draw back is also its biggest assest, its size. I have even thought of getting a smaller one just for the cc part of the busiess and use the bigger one for the restoration side.

do you suggest single axle? or dual axle i be using the truckmount side mounted with an automatic jack
Depends on size of trailer. I think under 10' you'd be ok with single axle. I don't personally like single axles, but that is just me. I have used both for various things and both have pros and cons. I just like double axles..
I have my tm mounted in the front and works well for me.
