Very Good question..... we were turning down all 75 gallon heaters cause the both of us could not handle the strain of getting them in and out of a house... now I can normally take it out by myself most times with no fear....


I would not mind having a second one if this guy is serious

I offered him 1000 for it last night just to see if he would counter but he has not even responded and there is less than an hour left on my offer...

My wife loves to kill me for tool purchases.

1) Love new toys, for me not always looking for pay off.
2) My back is worth more than the cost even if I only used it a few times a year.

I would not for 1 or 2 a month. Can you work a deal out with a local scrapper and get him to remove them. When i did service years back we would do 1 or 2 a week and i would get a helper.

I wouldn't want to deal with a scrapper as I would need a receipt. Then the homeowner will need to take a second day off for the guys and when they stain the carpet with rusty water, scratch the wood floors or dings a wall they will blame me.

As for a helper I won't be able to get someone at the drop of a hat and I'll look like a fool with a 60 gallon in the van at the customer's house and I can't install it because the guy didn't show up. People generally take a day off from work I would get bad reviews.

I just found a dealer in Canada and for a 72", 700 pound staircat the price will be almost 3700$ CAD, That's 480$ in taxes (included in this total).

Unless I can get a used one at a decent price with the amount of calls I get right now I'm going to have to think and wait.

Most people generally frown on total strangers coming into their homes to haul out a water heater.... on average, those scrappers normally look like they have not had a bath in a month or are covered in oil and grit
so it would not fare well with your lady customers....

Here's the page. Add 15% taxes on top and that's the price. It was 42$ and change for shipping.
