and why dont you have your chemical line distributed nationally?
All of our TM's are HX models.

We have:

1. 24HP Honda models with #4MR Blowers

2. 34 HP Kohler models with #4MR Blowers

3. 38 HP Kohler models with #5MP Blowers

We do have a distributor TCS in Atlanta ,,,

and another in Austin TX - Cross Country Supply

Mikey,

I got a customer complaint today.

The customer had sprayed vinegar before the technician applied liquid peroxide.

The combo creates peroxyacetic acid, a very potent product with a 5 ppm max level.

Larry

I bet Olsen told him to do that.

Thanks for the nice comment Larry. Is the next generation of the Cobb family involved in the business yet?

Thanks

Succession is always the difficult step, Lee.

You seem to have done a good job.

Larry,

This is a photo of a Judson, What is better than Stainless ?

Is this not Stainless from header to exchanger ?

The # 4 Little Giant has 180,000 BTU's. Are you saying that you exchanger gets hotter. (I for one only like a HX)


Who invented the gas powered T/M ?

Not looking for a fight just to understand your post's

Chris;

I like stainless on any TM.

Most of the Judsons I've seen had painted steel tanks.

I think HX's have surpassed the #3 LG heaters by a good margin.

2nd attempt to post this. I was timed out the first time around!

It's alway tacky to see one supplier put down another. Even when he tries to disguise it.

I have that problem with Olsen, too.

Marty;

I'm not trying to put down any manufacturer.

Judson has been around a long time and built lots of good machines.

Chris asked me a question and I responded based on the machines I have seen.

BS ... all you had to say was that you like them both, or that you are not familiar with their designs well enough to comment.

It's always tacky. Whether it's a cleaner or a supplier.

Larry, If you had to sell only one chemical line other than your own who's would it be?



and do you really see the need for more than two types or pre sprays?

OK Marty, lets see exactly where you stand.

You've had a LG heater unit from TCS.

Now you have a Vortex w/ HX.

Do you still think a carpet cleaner should go with a LG heater TM ???

Is there anything new we can look forward to coming from Cobbs Supply?

Chems, tools, machines, a CSR with100% of their hearing?

Chemspec has some unique chemistry.

Yes; I do see the need for several presprays.

We do try to limit the number we offer.

The point is, Larry, that it's tacky to make a judgement concerning one of your competition on an open forum. You don't see Les, or Duane, or any other competitors of yours here stealing time, or making comments. It's ok for me to talk, because neither of the two, or you, are competitors of mine. It WOULD be tacly of me, low class even, to talk badly of one of my local competitors in front of a mutual prospective customer. ESPECIALLY if he, or she, was a fellow Mikey's board poster, and my comments had the potential to hurt his business.

Good Question....

We are currently working on some new chemistry that has the potential to replace solvents in presprays without any loss of performance.

I am playing with some new UV lasers to take spot removal to a new level.

A new portable machine that can handle hi-flow carpet cleaning as well as grout cleaning at hi-pressure.

We do have some new CSR's.

Yes; I do see the need for several presprays.

Can you describe 4 different scenarios where 4 different juices would be needed?


I personally need a alkaline and a acidic prespray to get by.

I can boost the Alkaline to do just about anything I want... Degrease, deodorize, brighten or save the fibers soul from the evil doers and haters the plague this industry on Mikey's Board dot com
 
#75
Is this thing still on?

Larry, are enzimes considered safe for cleaning. Meaning if one uses a pre-spray with enzimes, can you call that safe for kids and pets..ect.
