No New Posts What Would You Guys Do?
I just saw this air compressor new, ( ) with the plastic still on it, at a local pawn shop. The guy says it's been there far too long and he's tired of moving it around. The tag on it says $700.00 He seems ecstatic that I'm interested in it and give...

No New Posts Enclosed trailer progress
Moving everything over into the enclosed trailer is taking a lot longer then I had anticipated. Staying too busy to get much done. I need a few days of not needing the equipment to move it over.. I have coated the floor with truck bed liner. I need to go up the sides a foot or two but I wanted to wait until I had...

No New Posts Open or enclosed trailer? ( 1 2 )
I was wondering what your thoughts are on open vs. enclosed trailers.  I have been pricing out both on ebay and local distributors and there is quiet a price difference but I was wondering what some of the pros and cons are that you guys have found.  I have been leaning towards an enclosed trailer, but wa...

No New Posts New roof cleaning gun ( 1 2 )
I am told that this gun will last and will come with a one year warranty by a sales rep. The catch is it is $135. It's from Annovi R What do you guys think. Also My old gun just bit the dust after 2 plus months of trial and was a great gun, 13gpm. I would spend another $35 but I do believe there is a better one out t...

No New Posts My FatBoy Pump ( 1 2 )
I've only used this pump on 6 roofs. Today I was going to softwash some really bad siding with it. The Pump ran untill it primed and got pressure. At first it only shot 15 feet then it dwindled down to 2 feet. The pump would turn on every 10 seconds for about 2 seconds. That is even with no tip on it at all. I have...

No New Posts Roof Wand from Pressure Tek snapped while working, DOH! ( 1 2 )
Anyone ever had this happen before? I was up on a roof yesterday spraying to my hearts content and the wand snapped right where the pvc threads into the trigger gun. DOH! I was really wishing I had a back up at that point, but I didn't expect that part to fail. I had to finish with a pump up sprayer, but I was al...

No New Posts Fatboy issues, any ideas? Pump will not start. ( 1 2 )
I was testing out my roof cleaning setup yesterday with a new ball valve gun that I made and it was working fine, but then I turned the pump off and disconnected the hose from my chemical tank and dunked it in a bucket of water to rinse the pump out. It sprayed fine for about 10 seconds and then everything shu...

No New Posts Running W/O Hose Reels ? ( 1 2 )
That is exactly what we are doing. Both of our trucks have no more hose reels. I simply got sick and tired of replacing swivels and manifolds. We have flat bed trucks, and simply lay the hose in the flatbed between our dual tanks. It looks like chit, but sprays much better, and save us money and breakdowns...
