    All the work this guy puts in and it still looks like a garage special. He claims other mfg's only offer 90 day warranties, I never heard of a 90 day warranty.

    I know a guy in Florida just running the crap out of his blue Barron and while it ain’t pretty it runs and runs.

    Don’t know why you say that Cobb units are nice too.

    donno about TM warranties
    But there appears to be a lot of value in that TM
    and more than a little thought in details are features

    aesthetics and footprint aside , looks to be a damnfine pro duty unit at a hellova price

    In truckmounts, I learned the hard way that you can save the money two ways:
    A solid, reliable, more expensive unit that’ll have less downtime

    Or a cheaper unit that’ll have crappy support from the manufacturer and more breakdown time

    Which one saves you more money?!

    The folks that are likely to have actually crunched the numbers have never owned the cheap ones.

    what are talking about, Goober ?
    do you know if that TM is reliable or not....( I don't)
    or are you just blowing bubbles??(I don't)

    There are lot of "garage built" TMs that run reliably
    I posted pics of two of TCS TMs .
    There's a whole bunch of Juddstone TnT's and Sunbelts (private labeled TnT) running every day too.
    would you buy TM made by Draper? (his SteamPunk is uglyasfck) but I'll bet it runs


    They're all not all DooWayne-o-matics , or a Nickllett units or Chemtex Panthers

    I don't know if it's reliable or not...but from a "GearHead's" point of view, it looks pretty damn solid to me

    I don't consider TCS to be a garage built. We're talking about two totally different machines.

    -Garage built are truckmounts that, no two machines are alike, because they're made in a garage, not a factory and each custom made part isn't the exact same size. (example, engine headers hand made)
    -Garage built truckmounts have terrible support.

    do you know that to be true?
    or speculating?
    You don't think a guy that builds HXs and TMs wouldn't have jigs 'n fixtures??
    really??
