Can anyone recognize what model Jabsco APO and CAT HPP do they use?
The first photo of my unit without these parts, the other one is photo made by one of the member on this forum. The pump that came with my unit doesn't fit here. They throw in another pump and took the original one for some reason. Thanks!

Ugliest mount I ever saw was at a Nashville Mikefest

Oxleys rattle mount

The engine was mounted on top of the waste tank and looked like a bobble head flapping around
He cornered me as i got outside...
And dragged me over to see it....
Then he SED.."well what do you think "
I stammered back...very interesting and
Escaped as quickly as i could...

I agree overall presentation is important

which is why even though a 1 man band on the carpet side I wear a logo'd polo

but even the board favourite is one ugly machine..

but hey it rides in a 70's styled van so it doesn't look out of place
Those who know, know that that is the most beautiful piece of equipment ever introduced to our wretched industry.

The price also makes them more attractive..... (that’s out the door with wand, stair tool, 2 upholstery tools, rotary tile tool, gekko tile tool, steam lines, vac hoses, air mover, everything..) obviously truck as well

About 20k less than a Butler! (plus you don't get all those extras either!) What size blower on that Stanley?

Welding companies put the propane version of those kubotas in a concealed container like that also. I know it's a liquid cooled engine, but isn't some air flow better than none?

The radiator/fan side that faces the wheel well is open

They open doors while cleaning.
Nope... doors are “supposed” to stay shut during cleaning. Under the kubota’s motor mount is a hole cut in the floor approximately 24” x 24”. There are also vents on the side of the truck directly in front of the radiator and electric fan to draw air in. The hot air should be vented out the bottom.

What’s the average time on the hour meter when you retire your truckmount?

Do you know the RPM that they run while cleaning and what is the water temp when cleaning?. JZ.
