    I don't see that being too much of a big deal. Keep in mind, we still have Hydramaster, a major team in the game of truck mounts. Then there's that Canadian truckount company...the one that sold their truck mount to an alabamian. A Canadian doing business with an alabamian? I'll never understand it.

    But back on the subject, if they do what Verizon did and make a foolish move to boot Jondon, TCS, interlink, or any other supplier, they'll really regret it, because the other players in the truck mount game will fill in their spot

    If you ever do get one of these, please make a decent video. These things are really sharp looking truck mounts. I'd love to see one in action

    So maybe an insider can answer me this.... if I was going to soon pull the trigger on an Everest, would that be foolish?

    I don't think it'd be foolish. The dealer you bought it from would still support you on it.

    My opinion is, I don't see Prochem going anywhere any time soon. It's too good of a product to just Merge into sapphire. If anything, I see Sapphire vanishing before prochem.

    There's more problems reported on these forums and Facebook with Sapphire than prochem.

    Yes, Sapphire puts out more vacuum and heat, but Prochem puts out more reliability. If Legend brands are smart, they'll Leave Prochem right where it is

    Here's my thoughts:

    Prochem was needing a direct drive with all the new F-Ugly vans being flooded in the market, and chemspec can't compete with prochem's chemicals, nor can they compete with prochem's reliable truck mounts, yet both have great support with all their products. Could prochem just add another truck mount to the fleet to make it direct drive? I'm sure, but they didn't have the balls to experiment. Laura told me herself that they like to use what's been reliable for them and not tweak with anything new that might make it unreliable to their customers. That's a good mindset for a distributor to have, only it could be dangerous for them not to change with the times. That's what I think Prochem is doing...just adapting to the flow of the market. I don't see them vanishing any time in the next 10 years

    You think too much.

    They are just tools and chems. Market yourself, everything else will work itself out. It always does. :cool:
