If there were ever something that I thought WOULD survive a tornado, it would have been one of those old "iron lungs"

There was a time they were a significant force in our industry, but based mostly on the charisma, will, and story telling capability of Bill Bane.

Surely not performance.

They sold a system. And made a bulletproof product. Only butler really did the same. . But I think bane was probably the only one that sold the machine and chems and education.

They were close to a franchise, without the fees.

Back in their heyday, people who followed the system built nice businesses, but lacked the ability to outproduce people with higher production systems.

They were a lot easier to fix and simpler to maintain than the pioneer truck mounts of the day, as I know you well know Justin.

Had Butler had a "Bane Type" of complete package, not just technical, but also the marketing, they'd have been even more of a force than they already are.

Or, conversely, had Bane had a higher performing, but simple truck mount.

Bill was unique, and I'm grateful that in his retirement we came to a level of friendship between us before he passed.

A TM with PD blower powered by an Electric motor will be the future in CA.
Hydramaster has a great platform to begin this project with the X-drive.
The Company needs to figure out how to run it without the ICE engine. However, the machine will be too expensive for most cleaners, But the treehuggers will love it.
