    I replace every couple years.

    Use a few little bandaids on Jon's owies. Now he wears gloves.

    Costco has a nice 1st aid kit for the crew. Emergency hospital and insurance info and forms for worker's comp issues.

    The 1st kit for the equipment should have:
    Solution shut off valves.
    Quick connects.
    Transfer pump
    Trigger valves
    Jumper cables
    Oil
    Antifreeze
    On/off Switch for porty
    Write out correction fluid for white walls :eekk:
    Wax wood filler pencils :eekk::dejection:
    I'm sure this list could be longer, but more complicated repairs might need to be done back at base.

    A general first aid kit does not provide for a lot of burns, but that is the most common injury when running a truck mount. An eye wash bottle is also needed. Otherwise the usual bandages and pain meds.

    Aramsco has a large selection of first aid kits and eye wash bottles. Most can be ordered from Interlink Supply as well. Here is a link to the most popular ones: https://www.aramsco.com//searchPage.action?keyWord=first aid

    Reminiscing about my own carpet cleaning injuries I would go with an aloe vera tube for severe burns like the one I got when my auxillary water line whipped across my chest while filling a jug, and definitely a sewing kit for those gashes from things like hose clamp tails sticking out on hose reels that the installers left hanging out there in the open like razor blades. I didn't bleed out but close. Oh, and a set of crutches comes in handy for those nasty sprains coming down wooden staircases with wet shoes trying to carry too much crap. And who can forget the Advil from when Mrs. Jones insists you move every stick of furniture in the house.

    That reminds me, I need to look into disability insurance.

    I keep the eye wash bottle in my spotting kit.

    I take blood thinners since a stroke 3 years ago, so I keep a packet of coagulant in my billfold as well as the first aid kit.

    make your own.

    most of the kits have stuff you'll never need or use .


    bandaids in several sizes/types , gauze and tape, aspirin, sterile wipes and a cell phone to dial 911 if serious injury

    Duct tape and a rag is in my repair toolbox. I always seem to slice my fingers when doing repairs and stretching. Also, always have a good knife clipped to your pocket so you can quickly cut up the rag to the desired size.
