LOL.. put them hoe's to work!! nah not anymore I'm a married man now.. In my weird ass head scrubber is a SC even though it doesn't scrub anything.
In my head a scrubber is what high sulfur coal runs through to remove sulfur so the coal burns cleaner. The scrubber rack is where the water nozzles are located in that process, or at least used to be. I think the process has changed from the early years. I worked on 2 of those Units in Cheshire, Oh.

By the way, what size roof pump are you going to run with.

Looks good Man!! Wish I had all that space. Pick up some fluted knobs at Lowes ( sky # 884527 )for the Big Guy fold the handle.. bungee it to the gate and run a cable through the base bracket and lock it to the corner tie down by the tail lamp.

Also... mount a coupler on the top rail next to each hose real to keep the ends from dangling.... I dragged 250' over the biggest bridge in Jax when a reel came lose. lost a blew a tire and a damaged a mosmatic swivel from banging on the concrete..

Best $10 you can spend!

Hope this helps

Thanks bro, Will add that to the list. I can totally see those hose reel clamps failing. Was it the buckman bridge? I hated that bridge everyday I lived there. The guy I worked for back in the day lost a ladder on it one day, It was something every day on that bridge.

Hey Matt, have you used the hot water yet? On resi. or commercial? How is it? as far as cleaning speed and less cleaner usage? Use it on oil spots yet?

Also how do you embed the youtube video so it shows up like yours and not just an url?

Heat is nice. Mostly commercial. Used it on some pavers the other day at a Cadillac dealership. ImageUploadedByTapatalk1409426423.669391.jpg

Matt, how much was that hotbox? Do you not think you could have got those results on the pavers without heat? I'm not looking to add heat anytime soon just wondering how much if I ever needed to add it. that's the route I would go when or if I do ever add it. Also what tips do you run in your big guy?

I paid around 2k for it.. Largo 8gpm from Bill @ powerwashstore. I'm sure i could have gotten good results with just cold water. I couldn't use anything caustic due to the anodized AL storefront glass frames. I had the heat so I didn't want to do it twice. They are doing a complete remodel to this dealership, it has pavers all the way around the showroom. I just cleaned one side for now as they are changing the entrances due to construction.. I will clean all of them around 3 sides of the building next year when the construction is completed. I love having the ability of the heat... nothing like the smell of the burner!!

I paid $2,590.00 plus shipping for a Largo Horizontal 8-12 gpm 115volt hotbox back in May. The price went down to $1,838.00 for the same hotbox in June. And this August the same hotbox was listed at (I think) $2,890.00

So the price of a Largo hotbox has been all over the place over the past few months. I got lucky in that I was refunded $752.00 from the dealer off of the $2,590.00 I originally paid due to a shipping mix-up. And now the price is $2,890.00 so I got over a thousand dollar break off of the current price.

Not sure why the price has recently gone up so much but could be due to rise in cost of materials and/or a high demand for the Largo hotboxes.

They had a pricing error on their site.. I was ordering right after you. Apparently largo sent them the largo cost sheet.. (i.e. Largos cost... not distributor's cost....) so they were all priced as net losers.... i didn't beat them up... Whats right is right..... they treated me properly.

Matt, that sure explains a lot. I was never informed of all of this until I read your last post. When they sent me the wrong unit Bill simply told me his cost had come down so he was going to refund me the difference to make up for my troubles and he did refund me $752.00 (That was during my busiest time of year and I actually would have rather had the correct unit in the initial shipment and not gotten the refund because it was a bit of an ordeal that I had to go through while already working long days 6 and 7 days a week.)

That's all water under the bridge now. The last time I checked the price on my unit was $2,890.00 so it has gone up $300.00 since I purchased mine. Thanks for the info because I was curious as to why the price had fluctuated so much in such a short period of time.

I can't believe you manhandled that hotbox onto your trailer by yourself. You must be a hoss!

Paul and Bill are good people.. They stood behind it... As a matter of fact I needed a vertical 12v and you were sent a horizontal... otherwise i was gonna see if I could make it all work for them ( shipping etc ) and be a win win.. Lol.... It has one dent in it... on the SS wrap above the coil.... I should have waited... but ( in my Belushi Akroyd voice ) "i was on a mission from Gaaad"!! Im 110 #'s........ the worst park was the hotbox was 53 inches tall and my ladder rack crossbars (4 had to get is past 3 ) are 52 7/8 high... I only had one day to do it... Had to fro it in the sun on the asphault...... best part was crawling underneath to unbolt and bolt everything back.... must have been 30 degrees cooler under lol Anyway.. the come along, floor jacks and straps did all of the work.... Except when she had to go from her side back to upright....

Love having the heat..... Makes life easy..
