the little guy is you and me and 90% of carpet cleaners who have to pay more for a TM than a van...or 50k to start a busines carpet cleaning ...van + TM
some day someone
will come up with a half price easy to work on truckmount and these big 3 wont be able to control the market anymore....

OPEC and arabia bumped their price up for oil until someone figured out it would be cheaper to frack and now america is taking over the lead of the world oil industry.....
and oil prices have fallen in half and will stay there for decades.....

it is always a cycle when someone prices themselves out of the market.....
Let's see a pic of your truckmount

And there is absolutely no planet in the universe where a heat exchanger will produce more or even the same heat as a diesel burner period....argue all you want it just doesnt.
we aren't arguing that point

Propane is by far, hands down the safest of all fuel fired heaters

Idk why some think diesel, kero, or gasoline is safer.

If you do, the entire RV industry disagrees with you lol.

After using both I prefer diesel but if I was going to use propane again it would have to be.
350,000 btu
milivolt
auto ignite
flow switch
Bob Savage Afterburner
4000 psi at 4 to 5 gpm rated
Little Giant can't do it and I don't like being limited. Probably looking over $2000.00 to do it. When I done it with diesel for $1350.00. I do have to say propane heaters are easier to work on than diesel

@SRD you are right about a 5.8 blower not being made. But that is what butler calls their upgraded blower package. That is what I should have clarified in my post. The blower is actually a 47 blower. Just wanted to make that clear.

@TLC CARPET CLEANING butler units are tried and true man been around for years with the same quality design. Im serious about the 59 comment if they made a unrestricted 59 unit id sell every truck i own and buy them. That setup coupled with a diesel burner would be unstoppable. imho. Not to mention i really like some of their waste tank and freshwater configurations
