  • Finally taking the plunge

    We are finally going off the deep end into jetting and camera work. Presented my case to the banker and he made me go whole hog or nothing, so here it is:
    1. 18 GPM @ 4000 PSI 600 gallon tandem axle trailer jetter
    2. 4 GPM @ 4000 PSI cart jet for the drain cleaning trailer
    3. 4 GPM @ 4000 PSI toolbox jetter to mount on the vac truck
    4. 1/4"x150' hand carry hose reel with nozzle set
    5. 3/8"x200' dolly mounted hose reel with nozzle set
    6. 1/4", 3/8", and 1/2" Warthog nozzles
    7. 1/8"x50' trap hose
    8. Mytana 200' Mainline Camera, color self leveling with touch screen monitor
    9. Ridgid Scout locator
    When I showed him my spreadsheet where I track the jobs I sub out he didn't like how much I was giving away. I was kind of planning to start with a cart and camera but he said I showed too much demand for the bigger equipment due to the large dairy industry and also the canal/pipeline farm irrigation system here so there we are.

    Documents to be signed next Monday. Now I gotta get out and beat the bushes to get my name out.

    Your doing the right thing with the big jetter. I went through a couple if jetters through the years and you just don't realize on what your missing until you get a 4000psi/18gpm monster. It makes a big difference!

      what kind of interest rate and what is the payoff date they require

      don't forget the root ranger for the 4gpm/ 4000# machines.

      i'm not too sure on the 1/4'' warthog at this point.

      why not the ridgid self leveling setup

        Financing details are classified because the financing is private through a good friend who has been involved in our business as a financial advisor and customer for years.

        The reason for Mytana is because the whole setup is a package deal from Jetters Northwest and that's what they sell.

                            You better be quick with your shutter finger, because unlike a new pickup or computer or toothbrush, the first thing I want to do to this stuff is smear poop on it, not take pictures of it .
