I'm set for a long time but I'm always thinking about whats next..


lots of turmoil in the industry waiting to see how all the CDS units deal with GMC ending production of their vans...

I expect Butler to make a big splash soon, they have to, more so than all the rest imo.
Nobody is talking about the Xdrive for some reason.
Will Sapphire find a way or let the Pro 1200 die?
Cleanco? no word...


Our Everest 650/Transit has been a hit.
So has my widdle 370..


Whats in your future?

I have a new Butler and hopefully it is my last unit.
Had I been in the market the only candidate will be the one with the best and hopefully justified, reputation for dependability.

If I was going to buy new, it would be a pto with high heat package like Butler, Cleanco or Hydramaster. So simple to use, lighter than a slide in, takes up less space in the van. No secondary fuels.

I don’t know. I’m leaning towards the new legend. I love the one we have now. The rage has been awesome.
But, I’m going to be shopping at the Experience because we will probably need a third van in the spring.

Yep. I thought about a CDS. But this will be my 2nd Everest. I know the machine so hopefully gremlins will be minimal. Also went with a water pond out the back. Well see how cramped I’ll be. At least it’s a medium roof so I won’t be crouched anymore.

Depends on what I need it for.

If I ever get a contract for prop management to put a tech on, it’ll be a Rage or Legend

If I get some more of these big commercial jobs like I’ve been landing...another Titan 575 or an Everest 480 will be my next.

TCS chief, 370, and similar... from what I seen what Mike has a d courtney has. Others as well, it more than enough to do the work around here especially the direction that I am going

I want to be a part of buying one more and put it in a van. It’ll be one of the small ones like yours. I want my girls set so they will continue with a truck mount. Almost makes me cry to think about.

Last machine simple Cobb 9 yrs and no problems love the roto mold recovery tanks no smell and great vacuum easy to use and high heat can't ask for much more from a lawn mower engine . It's easy to spend a lot of money and I don't work on the high end islands that don't want to hear noise from the truckmount so I work for regular people. The unit does everything I need as 1 person so unless someone wants me to try another I will work a few more years until I'm 80 then I will sell my old equipment to a youngin to try his luck and support his life and family . jz.

Most likely another direct drive.
I don’t see Cleanco being on the cutting edge of things transitioning into the new vans.
I bet Butler pulls it off.
Whatever I buy, it being the last one I’ll be in will have a lot to do with my decision.

Brady and I both are happy with TCS and our Cleanco’s, but who knows where Cleanco will be in 4 years?

And I dang sure don’t want another propane burner.

Is TCS gonna improve their only heat exchanger model to be a little more presentable?

Love this place.
We can't reach consensus about which sliced bread is the fluffiest, let alone a truck mount.

So far from all the ones I've owned- 3CD's, Pro-1200, Apex..................Butler has been the most trouble free one.
From day one, unlike the others- No tweaks necessary, so far no break down. Just turn the key and collect.

Me holding my fingers crossed.
