We need to bring all jobs back here, but as we all know, no one from younger generations want to work. Itís all about safe spaces, entitlement and free stuff.
yes you can blame them, as they can spec better quality made in china parts, they do exist, but cost more $$$$ so, spartan and rigid buy the cheapest schit and charge you the most $$$$..example..lincoln welders have made in china parts inside, but they are speced to meet a higher quality than the crap cheapo parts china puts into a $200.00 welder instead of a more expensive lincoln, and the quality parts do hold up and take abuse...

Gfci fail quite often have had to cut them off to get job done... as for a big jetter.. i dont think its entirely necessary to have a 4018... alot of times its a huge mess..

I almost bought a commercial pressure washer recently its was 8gpm 3500 psi apprently i think it was 25 hp..

That would be plenty for what i do 99 percent 6" and under... if its real heavy just more passes.. I've been stupid busy lately.. bigger jetters are good if your doing restaraunts and townhouse complexes or warehouses, auto shops...

Stuff with lots of sand and grease... roots i still think a snake is better..

Had a call friday guy wanted everything do was a house with a produce ware house attached..

Snake upstairs bathtub. Replace shower head. Snake main floor kitchen.. mainline in house backing up snake that.. 3 floor drains down there to snake...

Ware house snake 1 basin, replace drain on another... jet out 4 floor drains... jetter wouldnt clear them had to shopvac, jet , use a tool i got to break up stuff, then shop vac then jet... jet out 2 catch basins got them all clear was there for 5 hrs doing all that... but i couldve got thkse floor drains with snake...

I perfer to use jetter when space and access is an issue too... over head lines... septic tile beds.... but if your going to spend 15-20 if not more.. then might be better to have the work first then get jetter out of necessity..

This is a personal choice for me but i think once you get into a big jetter you may want another guy.. and with a jetter your going to be finding alot of dig jobs so make sure your prepared to either do the job or find a sub-contractor willing to do the work... no point in having expensive equipment and not make the big money....

For me if a piece of equipment is 20k i want it to pay for itself plus make my labour within 6 months of owning it

Finally, something we agree on.



Regardless of global politics or country of origin a brand name does still mean something even if they don't run their own manufacturing plants anymore. You get what you order and if you order crap you sell crap and you end up with a crap reputation associated with your brand name.

I think the soldier is 12gpm at 3K PSI. If all I was doing was 6” and under residential I think I’d prefer 9gpm at 4K. Does it have a remote? If not it’s a lot of walking back and forth if you’re by yourself. Does the soldier have a clutch to engage the pump like their bigger machines? I’ve never liked that idea.

Good questions! If I ever hear back from my rep, Iíll definitely ask. Yeah, not having a remote sucks! Been there done that.

My Mongoose is now 6+ years old, paid for itself in 9 months and turns $70,000+ in revenue every year. It's remote is awesome. Pretty much the whole story.
