Hi guys I have a company cleaning houses and apartments and have portable but I want to upgrade to TM I have a budget of 18k to buy a TM, live in Oregon the nearest TM dealer is Jon-Don I want to know if SS Rage is strong enough to push 150 feet of hoe's or what other machine do you guys recommend and to clarif I live in Oregon thank you for helping and have a wonderful day
Hey my best friend has a rage, him and I constantly do commercial jobs together. We have put 300' of hose on his rage and it still did surprisingly well, it is no 370 but it can get the job done. If you do go the rage route see if jondon will order the pump cluth from Sapphire for you.

Yes one does exist it's just not a standard part at Jondon.

TCS in Atlanta is a sapphire dealer and all of their rages have external, factory added pump clutches while the ones at Jondon don't nor do they mention it.

Good info.. Not exactly accurate. 370 has 150' of hose... So does legend. Legend isn't on surmount tank unless ordered as such. Forget the starter package... Not worth the argument.. have no experience with a Judson.
I quoted from my memory, so if I'm off a tad, my mix up, but you'll notice all my pricing is competitive and usually better. If I'm lower on price and it's my mistake I'll honor it, as for hoses. WELL?
Show me in writing a hard purchase price from a dealer / distributor and I can usually beat it.
On the ProChem unit your right, but I was offering the Killer setup. This isn't a normal every day deal. I should Note price is good for 10 days? Eh Maybe....
As for Judson, dudes been building TMs since the early 50's.... When and if a used one comes up for sale guys Jump. Stupid simple design, repairs are simple to do, common easy to find parts. Can't beat it.

P.S. If looking for Fox TM's I can quote price on them too. Also building TM's since the 50's. Damn good machines!

TCS, a bunch of cool guys over there. I've had the opportunity to do business with them.

Hey Hector, you'll be fine. The test is no big deal. Just do the normal studying and you'll pass it.

IICRC will keep bleeding you for more money too. Got to pay them money every year as well as take more courses. As long as you're forking money over to them they'll make sure you pass.
