Hi y'all. I am looking at units to purchase and have a few questions. I've looked at the Legend GT, and the Diamond GTS which everybody says is comparable. I'm concerned I suppose mostly with how much suction they provide. What size blower would y'all recommend for a 200-250 foot run? Some medium sized commercial and possible water mitigation extraction? Would it be better to try to find a good unit for 12-15k and get a high mileage van? Or a used van and unit? Im trying to spend less than $20k for everything I need to get started, I want to make sure I can do the kind of work that gets repeat business/ good reviews/ word of mouth. Literally any help or advice at all would be greatly appreciated as I'm trying to learn as much as I can. Glad this site exists.
