Who uses it?  I was thinking of switching to 5/8" from 3/4" Kuritech.  My thought was that its easier to handle and maneuver.  In my first year here its been mostly residential so I havent needed super large volumes to spray.  Most of the time I'm dialing down for accuracy.  I have an air pump...

I've had a number of questions about the bucket truck in prior posts.  Although I try to keep it in frame for most before and after photos, I have no pics of it 'in action' since the ground tech (i.e. the Warden) isn't much on camera ops...  Since I'm working on marketing and SEO in general over the winter,...
