Good interview. Kevin seems like a great guy. At 47 he's already been in the industry longer than I have at 62!:) I started when I was 30 also with a 100 psi 1 vacuum motor portable.

He's doing 200k+ a year with a portable, something tells me it's not the equipment lol
Amen to that. His dad does 1.1 million with 3 employees and 3 portables. Thats impressive!

You got that right. And no, I am not partial to portables. Yet, he does not like to use his portable beyond 50 ft. I run mine out of my van, at up to 125 feet. It's great not having to take it in and out.

Using commercially available equipment you are held prisoner, redesigning everything for how you want to use it liberates you to a different level.
