Terry why water extraction only? Having fresh water on your truck rules!

I would recomend a cube van for floods. I can send you some pictures of my truck if you like.

I do sub work for  one company.

Run a bruin 2  to clean for them  and flood work,witch is fine for now.

But here in Montreal we have really cold times in Jan ,Feb lots of broken pipers .

Would like to put just a flood truck on the road for them.

Because i have missed about 20 jobs this year.

But don't want to spend the money on a full truck .

Would not to able to keep it working all year round.

What i mean is too much work for one ,but not enought for two.

 

Thanks Terry

Terry: Unless you have a fleet of trucks there is a down side to having just a flood truck if you are a small operator like myself.  What happens if while extracting warter you have to doe some powerwashing?  We use our trucks and powerwash and extract.  I ran bruin II 's for a few years went threw alot of belts but still a good unit.  You would be better off either replacing the bruin and using it for a spare or for overflow or purchase a used unit.  But I think you need the flexabiltiy to be able to turn that flood truck into a cleaning machine.  Other options flood sucker portable or a drain vac.  This is of cource just my opinion  good luck with ever you decide.

How to keep it simple.

Purchase  a Ninja Flood Master. This unit will pump and suck 30 gallons per minute non stop continuously. And will double as a carpet cleaning machine. It is on this site.

Thanks guys.

Ted i'll call you about the flood master.I was the one calling from Montreal about the pto.

Shop at  fourniture select .Vincent Begin , he does not have them .Think it's more in line for me then a second truck.

P.S what would a bruin  2 suck a min?. If we have a guy dumping .We also have a pump out from pc what would that pump??.Thanks Terry

pss Talked you're self out of  one more  truck sale

Terry,

Another idea is to purchase a used #4 or #5 blower for approx. $1,200.00
Purchase a drive shaft PTO with clutch for another $1,500.00 install a recovery tank with or without and auto pump out.
Have it all installed and you will have a slick vac water flood pick up unit.
Total approx. cost installed maybe $5,000.00 to $6,000.00

Five serious floods should give you that return.

Or you being in Montreal could rent one of nightriders hoses and wands since he can use three off of his truck and generally only uses one.

Ted:  Ihave to disagree. Wasteing $5000. or $6000 on a mish mash not my idea of a fix.  Don't forget to add another $5000 or $6000 for the truck. You can buy a used cd unit in the truck for less than that. You can also add another few bucks for hoses and wands.

Mr. Matthew N. Lozecki., ASD, WRT CDT International Inc., CAT Director of Network Development:  I guess your idea of basics and mine are different.  I guess you go directly to Airmovers. lgr's and so on?  I prefer to remove the standing water first which what this post is all about?? I guess we have had different training??Do you just instruct and reccommend go directly to drying equipment, water extraction is not necessary when airmovers and lgr's are in place?  Does it take you any longer to evaporate the standing water? Guitar

It was a simple question.

I was only wondering if you were building a complete truck kit with everything.

Sorry

Extractor, wand/hydro X vac, lgr's, airmovers, hoses, attachments, cleaning solutions etc. Somthing along those lines.
