    Prochem Legend XL - biggest, baddest, engine possible

    Truth! Got a quote on a new engine (just a straight across replacement) and it made my face burn lol $3K CDN Not happening. Going to fix up the Koehler I have for just a little under 1K as I found a used wiring harness that checks out. When I bought the Legend I knew there would be some...

    Prochem Legend XL - biggest, baddest, engine possible

    I'm considering trading in my Koehler v-twin engine that came with my used Prochem Legend XL. What's the biggest baddest engine I could install (within reason, for best reliability)? My engine needs oil seals, wiring harness and some other parts. Compression did test great on both sides. Shop...

    Truckmount Depreciation

    I did call Kacy prior to deciding on the Legend XL. With import duties, shipping and the exchange rate his machine was just a hair out of my budget. I think in 4 years or so when it's time to retire the Prochem Legend XL I will be getting the Contender from Kacy. I can't justify the price now...

    Prochem Legend XL - repair costs

    Payed 7,000 Canadian dollars for truckmount and equipment. Included heated storage for a few weeks until I could get it to the shop.

    Prochem Legend XL - repair costs

    Bought the Legend XL including wands, hoses, hydroforce presprayer and some other supplies. It was bit more than I wanted to spend but the machine checked out at the shop on major parts. Compression was 147 and 145 on each cylinder. I am sending the Koehler out for a new oil seal and wiring...

    Truckmount Depreciation

    Ended up getting the Legend XL and a pile of equipment. All used, and local. Will be up and running soon. Also splurged on a Hydroforce SX-15 for tile and grout work. The Prochem engine checked out compression wise, but I'm doing some new oil seals and a wiring harness to make it almost perfect...

    Truckmount Depreciation

    What's the cost on a Reliabuilt for machine and tanks. Looking for a reasonably small footprint machine that can do tile and carpet with hose runs between 150 and 200 ft. Doing a lot of ground level small businesses. Will send them an email.

    Prochem Legend XL - repair costs

    I'm still in negotiations on a Legend XL (2007 model with around 2500 hours, as shown by service records - hour meter was deemed inaccurate) My thanks to the members of this forum for helping me to value various units. This forum is amazing. Was wondering what various parts and services would...

    Truckmount Depreciation

    You guys are right in the ballpark of what the dealer is quoting. Apparently one sold for 13,900 - likely with more hours. Dealing with two dealers at the moment. May go for a local Prochem legend instead and do some of my own reconditioning work.

    How would you value this?

    Update : Offered 8200 (includes 2004 Chevrolet 1 ton van, wands, some tools, hose and of course the Legend XL). Seller countered to 9200. All figures in Canadian dollars. Thinking. Thinking hard tonight.

    Truckmount Depreciation

    Wondering how much a Truckmount depreciates over the first year? Reason being, there's a next to new Sapphire 370ss with only 55 hours on it. Waiting on the quote. What do you think it's worth?

    How would you value this?

    So it runs good, is leaking a bit of oil, no weird noises, still stumped on what I should offer? It was stored in a heated garage.

    How would you value this?

    I was thinking offering 7000 Canadian, (so around 5400 USD), and holding relatively firm as I need a cushion for repairs. The plan is to use this machine for as long as I can building up my customer base, and then when I'm super busy switch to a new one and finance it.

    How would you value this?

    I'm looking at a 2007 Prochem Legend XL with roughly 1900 hrs on it. It's local and seems in decent shape. May leak a bit of oil. It comes with 200ft of house, 2 wands (1 hard surface, 1 carpet), an upholstery tool and stair tool. Comes with an air mover as well. Seller is offering it for...
