I am no expert at all but I have a blazer plus guy told me it was an 02-05 he didn't know for sure I have no clue what years they where made.

Anyway I am satisfied with mine #3 blower set at 15hg works fine with 300ft hose runs up to 1200psi got it running in Feb put almost 300 hrs on the meter it takes about 15 min to reach full heat due to a way over sized water box but to holds good heat even on tile jobs

unless you do modifications on it its a weak unit... i have an 18 hp unit i think same blower as the one you buying you looking around 150 to 160 degrree at the wand, maybe 170 if really hot outside... as far as doing a trashed carpet that requires 200ft of vac, then you be in trouble... low heat and weak vac... if you gonna stay at a 150 ft range distance from van then its great..
modifications will make it run like a bigger tm

4 to the door with the devastator filter, 2 inch vac hose all the way to the wand, 2 inch tube wand, glide, add a propane heater, 65,000 btu or bigger..
this simple things will make a huuuge difference... i have no problem going up to 250 ft away from the van using 500 psi with still good dry time, as far as heat i get 240 at the machine.. hotter is better!!... my unit feels like a boxxer 421 or legend size units with better heat..

do you think 5000 grand for the truckmount and trailer plus reel and hoses and wand is the right price
