Oh wait there’s a personal side to this too. We are hitting with low blows?
I was made to believe that John L was a evil man by Ed V and shouldn’t buy his machines. John L has never made up Ed stories the many times I’ve communicated with him.
We are out of line when Ed attack’s John publically, and privately?
We’re not to speak of these things?
This all boils down to after years of only a few bold enough to complain, now others are fighting back and people are mad.
So be it.
AZ, you're not stupid. You, just like everyone else here can read and make up their own mind. No one lead you to believe that John is the evil one, you came to that conclusion on your own. There is a difference between promoting a product and flat out attacking your competition, if you want to say it's even competition. Critical thinking skills, the ability to differentiate between fact and fallacy and how one conducts him or herself when representing a product or company are some of the key things to consider when deciding who to do business with. The manner in which John was/is being treated by Ed is quite obvious to anyone paying attention and should throw up warning signs. Red flags should be waving and sirens should be going off when you notice that even under attack John does not stoop to the same levels, that is a person of honesty, integrity and someone who has something to be proud of. That's the type of person I want on my side and why I've never wavered from Mytee.

In the off chance that somehow you aren't responsible for making up your own mind, do you think the world is flat, that solar panels will cause the sun to burn out, that wind turbines will use up all the wind, that coal is coming back and that we shouldn't vaccinate children? Just food for thought.

Appreciate your thoughts but you obviously have never spoken to Ed personally as he attacks people.
@J20770 what type of equipment do you use?

Also real quick I do agree with you. Ive gotten to know John L much better in fact after doing so have realized we have mutual friends. Johns a man of high moral integrity and has no ill feelings what so ever. That’s one of the reasons I’m going to but Mytee equipment. Not under the guise it’s perfect but it’s being sold by someone who cares.

No, I haven't and I'm not defending him either.

I have a LTD 5 LX that replaced a 1005. I also have a T-Rex and the Mytee Dry.
Can I ask how much time you've spent working on them in the last year

@J20770 yea I was naive, but I didn’t know John at the time I talked to Ed. Again I was completely wrong, after reaching out to John L, I realized that.
I’m not thinking for a second that Mytee is a perfect brand but I do respect someone that stands behind their products. That’s a business I rather support.

I had the same experience with Ed and we talked about how him and John have had confrontations and then after talking to John you find out that that never happened
Ed speak of John like John is the devil stealing Ed ideas taking Ed business talking distributors in to not carrying his machine
and then you realize after speaking with John and you get both sides of the story that it's a complete fabrication from Ed.

All I have to say is I'm sorry for being naive and not getting both sides. Which puts me in the wrong.

The LX, none. I did add chem injection and a float switch for the APO and reversed the solution hose couplings so the male end is on the machine.

The T-Rex...I had to replace the upper handle housing because one of my employees brought the bay door down on the handle.:mad: Of course that's not a manufacturing issue, more of an idiot issue.

You absolutely will need to use some sort of filter for the waste water. I just use the piglet filters on the intake, as it was designed.

See that's the stuff I'm used to having on all the other pieces of equipment I've ever owned that's why I went on a tirade. People need to know the truth.

@J20770 I know your a man who speaks his mind. But if you called Ed before you knew a thing about John I think you’d understand a bit more. Ed talks about how John steals his ideas and courts had to protect him. He goes on a on. A good salesman sells, and he did sell me a lot of BS about John that was untrue. I should of done my own research granted before forming an opinion.
John has always ended the fights here before they get personal. I should of seen that but I didn’t. I fell for the false news.

I can confirm every word you've said is truthful. Ed really convinces you to be on his side no matter what or else you're the problem

BTW if you haven't had a machine long enough to know if it is reliable it would be wise to not post about how great the performance is until you have used it long enough.
That's the main reason why I'm waiting to report on Relia-built 23/47 unit . It passed 300 hours recently , so 200 to go until report . If everything works well , there might be no report. Why bother , if everything works as it should. Only problem I'm dealing with, is so much suction and no , I'm not drilling holes in my wand. There are other ways how to deal with it.

I don't know who you guys think you are. Amazon and Ebay sellers get reviewed ON EVERY SINGLE TRANSACTION!!!! It keeps the sellers honest!!!!! Who would have thought...........
I'm not sure how those reviews are generated, I've dealt with a company with 99.4% positive reviews and somehow they sent me new , 11 years old tires and said it's ok to mount it on van. And wait, I have contacted them before making purchase to inquire about DOT # and they assured me that the oldest tires in inventory were made in 2017. So, false advertising, I guess, is not punishable by law. As I dug deeper, BBB and Consumer protection agency had plenty of complaints, some of similar, some of even worse nature for the same company awarded with 99.4% rating. Now, my question is, should I order 2 more tires to convince myself that I'm right about their dishonesty? I don't think so.
I have many years of experience in different, unrelated industries , but sometimes I'm very supprised by the form and place of ongoing discussion on forum, not the actual merit. I can
( as many others)
change the atmosphere by launching counter propaganda aiming at few companies mentioned on the forum in recent years. I had so many portables that I lost count, starting with Castex, Kleen rite, Century 400, Mytee and some of them are not even in the business and some discontinued certain products , because they realized that particular model has limited life span and no improvements would help to save it. So , you young studs can have your " strong " opinions, but you won't change direction of industry, unless you use your brains and invent something on your own. Other than that, have successful careers and be happy.

Man I'm sorry new 11 year old tires please be safe. I've seen too many issues when I was in the Auto industry with old tires on new vehicles. there's actually a tire sulfation test that can be used to tell the age of a tire that is different than the dot number.
Granite of Peace the rubber has to go to a lab lol
And I sincerely mean this is get a chance swap them out. Tires whether they're on the shelf or not lose useful life after 6/7years
The real problem is the. Law is very loose when it comes to manufacture. I would hate for someone to get hurt

I don't speak Japanese
( yet) ,but Bridgestone has also corporate office in Nashville , TN. I'm not sure that my "11 years" old problem will be their concern, but I can call or write and describe nature of my problem. Maybe, just maybe there is someone in corporate hierarchy, who cares.
Correction: Tires were made on 11/02, so they're only 8 years and 2 month . Sorry for misinformation , still pretty old for a brand new item.

Okay you want to look on the inside of the tire and try to find the recess that with the carved in numbers it should look something like this
Yes they are very old.
many manufacturers only recommend six years of shelf life and there was a proposed Bill to Congress to make it law but it didn't pass

Hey mate, the retailer may not but Bridgestone head office, they absolutely care!!
I don’t believe that model of Tyre would have been available in 2002...get a pic of the build date on the outside of the tire should be listed with the DOT numbers except you will have to look on both sides of the tyre one has it one doesn’t
Look for the coloured dots should but not always on the same side
To my eye they look fresh enough
Older new tyres can look a little brownish due to the mold lubricant going off like old floor seal and blacker due to the higher carbon content in the rubber...now more silica added (white) replaces the carbon (black) so tyres quality branded/silica tyres look grey now
Register your tyres and email Bridgestone. They will help you

my daughter just bsought tires....
mechanic just told us 5-6 years old......

but he said they would be ok

i thought that was bad
I’m not sure if you have a discount tire but here they won’t even service older tires. They suggest replacement. Not sure way the cut off is however. But we get sidewall damage from UV commonly.
