That is a real pressure washer..... What are you talking about ???? Instead of Orange Crest we should start calling you "POCKETS"..... What is it that you wash that you need so much more ????? Unless you are fleet washers why do you need anything else ???? If you are interested in a real rig , give me $30,000 and I will set one up for you..... It will do everything..... OK Pockets !!!
Actually, that isn't a real rig... I would suggest buying a larger trailer, which won't run but may be a couple hundred dollars maybe, with the intentions of growth.
You don't need to have everything up front, but somethings you don't prepare for in the future can actually cost you big time later.
A burner easily pays for itself in know time. If you use it or not, buying it now will save you money for when you do, and you will because hot water can cut chemical cost dramatically.
I started out with a large trailer with just a 325 gal tank and a P/W with a burner. It looked pretty lonely with all that extra room on the tralier, but as I earned and started to apply profits toward equipment I now have pretty much everything I need to do what I need.
I do agree with not purchasing things you don't need, that's why I didn't include anything else...
That machine looks like a direct drive, possibly a HD special of some sort, waste of money if all you are going to do is turn around and have to purchase a real machine in the near future.
Sometimes you have to buckle down and save just a little bit more money to save thousands in the future.
Having to replace a trailer, P/W and having to pay for a fine because everyone told you that you don't have to worry about reclaim will cost you bigtime in the future, and believe me no one is going to help you pay the fine when you tell them that they were wrong... Ooopppsss!!
I have posted how to build a reclaim system without having to spend the thousands that Jon and Alan spent on theirs.
Look at the pictures and tell me if you think this enough for you guys to get by...
Then notice they are the same location, and then notice their is no reclaim system, and then finally know that they are no longer P/Wing...
