by all means, believe John and buy one.
Now see, that’s why I find it hard to know who to believe. I was just asking questions, my intention was not to make you defensive. Although, I can understand why you would be defensive.

Furthermore, I’m not in the market to buy something with newer technology. I just try to keep an open mind.

That my friends is a great example of criticism through the use of a compliment sandwich. Let's break it down. And yes, I'm trained in Verbal Judo and recognize when it's being used.

1. The first layer of bread, "Now see, that’s why I find it hard to know who to believe. I was just asking questions

2. The meat, " I was just asking questions, my intention was not to make you defensive."

3. The second layer of bread, "Although, I can understand why you would be defensive."

You are correct, that was right out of the book. That said, I didn’t intend to make him defensive.

How come we never get any feedback on the Xdrive from Hydramaster?
I had my van in the shop for a scheduled maintenance.
The mechanic who worked on it was in the know with HydraMaster.
He told me there was a guy in Toronto that had bought a X-Drive, it broke down, and it had been in the shop for 4 and a 1/2 months!!!!
I don’t think I’m interested in buying one....

Here’s the deal

Mytee has always been know for cheap crap and poor quality control.
It wasn’t til Greenie (who the pack following monkeybutts thought of as a guru gawd) started hawking their chit, did they become a “board de jour” fav.

Once Greenie became known as the problom child he is and disappeared, Mytee once again became the outfit known for cheap knock-off crap and poor QC they are and always have been

That equation throws me also. What's the point?
The biggest problem with etm's is when you add up all the extras you need, like propane heater, waste tank, 200 feet of pressure and vac hose, etc. You could have bought a small gas powered unit with more power. Hydramasters X-Drive is a different animal. They are just replacing the shaft drive with a generator and electric motor. The power and heat are the same as a regular 4.8.

The “lectric” mounts of the near future may very well need a gas engine to drive them.
NOT because it’s more better.
But more due to the new vans and the effect it has on the direct drive manufactures

Once they discontinue the Chevy van, they don’t have a platform to install their TMs In .
Not that engineers can’t make one to fit the new europhag Vans
But will vehicle manufactures honor the van warranty with such mods ?


And whatever they come up with, I’ll bet my last Little Debbie oatmeal cream pie, Butler, Cleanco and HM won’t make a TM with electric fan vacs

Oh yeah please make a hydraulic pto so you can be like a garbage truck leaking all over some ones driveway and street
That's why I said "properly engineered". My neighbor has a parkade cleaning business. His ride on equipment is all hydraulic. Doesn't leak a drop. Most heavy equipment is powered by hydraulics. The brakes on your vehicle are hydraulic. If your hydraulic system is leaking it's up to YOU to fix it.
