Intrested in buying a used truck mount. Wondering if it's better to buy a slide in? or a PTO unit? Which one would give off more heat? Because i think the hotter the better.

Mr. Steamer maybe you could help me? Because i understand you have both.

Steamdragon the hotter the better.

It's personal preference in my opinion.

If you want super heat go with a fuel burning heater.

You can get heat exchange units that will hold about 240

There are some used units on this site.

Where are you from?

I've always run pto's but considering a slide-in for my next unit.


If you are Canadian,try -

and look under the classified ads

That old Prochem on this site is a real fire breather.

If you're in Toronto......truckmount = trouble

Buy a boat, go to Florida, open a hot dog stand

Year round work, and it doesn't make noise

Or don't take my advice, buy a truckmount, make little money....and buy hot dogs from someone else and make him rich.

pto vs slide-in

Pto suction power power power, but if you only running a single wand ...waste of time...get a pto if your running dual or tripple wand...gas cost a lot here in toronto I don't need to tell you that.  The pto is hard on the van as well

Slide-in heat heat heat, way cheaper on gas, but a real problem to work on if you don't know what your doing...a lot of little hoses and valves that dry out and crack and break real fast from the heat of the engine. 

For both you have to be pretty handy...or ross or phil or sinclair gets paid if you don't know any of these guys you will, if you can't help yourself around these machines

Steamdragon look on my website under - truckmounts take a look at the Prochem 150 Kerosene burner unit in blue. It will give you the hottest water possible and you can purchase it cheap. Although I would not suggest anything in your van with an open flame. And I am sure that your insurance company wouldn't either.

Look how good a salesman I am. I have already talked you out of it. Or have I?

We also have many other used truckmounts on our site.

Very Simple
If you are working the truckmount yourself buy a slide-in.
If you are hiring dummies buy a PTO.

Very, very good advice.

Mr. shouldn't go talking about your girlfriend like that, that's not nice, but the next time you're with her can you look for my gold watch.

My truck is 14 years old, 65,000 Miles on it, rolls down the street like a Tank, 18 feet long, gets all the peoples attention, has Air, Power windows, P.Seats, P.Mirrors, 2000 Watt power Sterio, 8 Speakers 4 Woofers, 2 Sunroofs, Crome Motor, New Mags, New Tires, and it roars with power when that 68 Blower and the 3.500 psi pump engages, coupled with my split transmission that activates it all.  ( See boys and Girls NO pto here...Its a split transmission, bet you've never heard of that before ) And enough heat to supply 3 wands....290 degrees at the wand. The only one in the world, baby.

This Truck burnes rubber, tranny was checked, diff. was checked.......The only problem when I bought it was an unbalanced driveshaft due to a faulty Universal Joint. When you purchase a truck outside Quebec it must undergo a very strick Government Test ................PASSED  100%

This truck kicks ass and all my competition stop just to take a look at it. It sure draws alot of attention.

                  LOVE     IT

                         NIGHTRIDER  would never sell it

Ted gives his tail light gaurantee...
