    yep...

    30 minutes.


    It's this tonight or an episode of 3rd Rock.

    Take your pick.





    Big thanks to Ron the spinmaster Britton for the camera work.

    and a huge thanks to The Bruders and Robert Kline for the hospitality and no expenses spared wine and dine treatment earlier this week. It was a real pleasure getting to know the people behind the company better.


    If you have any interest at all in how a truckmount comes to be, I think you'll really enjoy this video.

    Nice Job with the tour Mikey.

    My guys and I like the Prochem units, but will strongly consider the SS units. The SS appears to be a much better unit overall.

    So what's your pic, 570 or 870?

    I spend a lot of time around industrial manufacturing facilities, and Sapphires is well thought out and efficient. Nerd-vana for sure! The design and construction of their machines is impressive. Thumbs up!

    I see I'm going to have to change to a different style pump. With the water box style they are using I need a pump with a pressure switch. I hate those. They don't last. What's the current favorite pump.

    No, I think you asked about the new 1200...caught my attention too and made me wonder how the "new 1200" will be different. Maybe it's the one with a Transit or ProMaster??


    Edit @7:05 you asked about the new version of the 1200
