Glad to be a part of the forum. I have been in carpet/Oriental cleaning field, since 1998. On Tuesday morning I am going to pick up my first, very own truckmount. I am buying a 2000 GMC 3500 (xtra long), with 21k on a new motor, and 64k on the transmission. The machine is a Butler, with 2200 hrs. All maintenance records included. Wands, upholstery tool, stair tool, and a few hundred feet of extra hose and line, beside what is on the reels. Two dehumidifiers and blowers. All for $11000. Does that sound like a pretty good deal to you guys? The folks at Butler said that it sounded great. Any tips from Butler users? Is there an easy way to bypass the live reel? Thanks for any help or advice.
