        join the crowd

        keep in mind that the auction will be live and on the internet. don't get caught up in the fury of the bidding.

        go there with a set limit and stop at that point. chances are they will sell for more than they're worth.

          I'm lucky in that I'm really close so I can go inspect equipment, not that I know what I'm looking for .

          I may have some questions to ask about the cameras. Haycad, I'll let you know if I plan on going.

            I recently retired one at 10 years old, they are tough reliable machines but they don't give all they boast at 4000 psi due to diapham distortion, a newish machine would be a good buy if the price was right. Harben make the pumps, mine had a lister petters engine, reliable but noisey a high revs. and the rest was put together by jetter conversions, a UK firm, not recomended. I would happily repair the drips on mine and get a few years more service out of it in my other van but for the time. They have a good reputation this side of the pond.

              If you are going to layout that kind of money make sure you can get work for it. Here all the towns have jetters to clean there city sewers and they pay for them by doing drains at all the businesses around. It is hard to compete with someone that don't have to pay for there equipment .

                restaurants City's Should not be touching, Home owner property or business and just stick to city property.

                Charging less does not mean more call volume it just means you have to work harder to reach your goals.
