All of you folks that are using a TM what is it and how old is it?
Do you maintain it like you should?
My TM is 2 1/2 years old, I’ve got 2290 hrs on it, and yes, I maintain the heck out of it, and my van.
It gets exactly what is required, when required.
It’s a Cleanco Compact 47, in a chev 3500 extended.

TM from Cleaning Technologies out of Georgia, 34 years old. Truckmount is in its third van.

Current Honda motor with 4500 hours is the 4th motor from the original Onan, Cat pump (recently re-built) is the second one, Roots #45 blower is the second one, recovery tank is the second one, and the heater is the second LP unit. Has over 30,000 hours on it. All of this is now in a 2002 Ford E-250 van with 30,000 original miles I purchased for $4500.

Most will say why don't you get a newer truckmount. What I have, including the van, is all paid for. I say why when this one does everything a truckmount is supposed to do, and more (runs dual wands), why should I go into debt.

Used daily still makin' money.

That's the problem with mine too. I designed it to be rebuildable. Rebuilt the engine once, replaced the blower once, replaced the lg heater once, rebuilt the pump once. I'd like a new machine but this one runs too good.

I have a an old Hydramaster 4.7 CDS with 2,500 hours in a 2001 Dodge van. I don’t know when the CDS was installed in the van but it wasn’t installed new. It’s also meant to be installed in a Ford or Chevy so it was rigged a bit but it still runs fine.

LaMont doesn't understand the concept of running a highly profitable upscale operation and the need to present yourself with updated professional equipment

You don't need to 'go into debt' to buy new equipment , I always pay cash

I don’t know how old my Steam Way Powermatic Legacy 2100 is. Mikey bought it used and I bought it from him. It’s built to last. Still better cleaning performance than newer equipment due to high heat WITH high flow capability.

1997 10’ cube van, custom wheels, running boards, front chin spoiler, personalized license plates.
