I do see that as an initial concern. I personally would take them out and let them see what I built. This leaves an impact that is not soon forgotten!

Sales are really starting to take off. My gut instinct was the industry was ready and needs something different. Something that rarely breaks down, is easy to work on if it does, most all parts available locally and super powerful. I am sticking to a 1 & 2 wand system so I can tweak them as far as possible.

I do plan on building a 3rd machine but it will be 1/3 carpets, 1/3 tile/stone and 1/3 pressure wash. It will be similar to this.

Yes we have sold several and surprisingly I can't keep up with the sales or inquiries. I have 2 buyers at my shop who came for a ride along. I am finding offering a ride a long showing the machine in action and how it all works has been a great incentive for buyers. I see a lot of potential in this endeavor.

I like it. Maybe in due time. We are so busy now selling them and TMF brand is growing leaps and bounds. I do like the idea. Might be a nice retirement job for me as I aint getting no younger. I got the flu a couple weeks ago. At 60 it hits different. So a nice leisure traveling around the country selling them may be in my future. Thanks for the tip.

Ya I hear you I got the flu this year also no fun that’s for sure I am sure whatever you do it will be good for you and the consumer if I was 30 again I would be down for one but as you know when you get older I don’t have that drive that I did once but I can still get it if I have to.
