Heck I like my pressure pro machine.. As far as a sand up burner I would never have another one.. I had a vert. Burner on an alkota machine along time ago .. It was in the back of my old truck . I drove down the road to a job one night and the whole vert burner coil assembly fell over.. I had to weld that thing back on over and over.. As far as my pressure pro machine goes I like the fact that the 18hp motor is more than enought to run the ts2021 and 2400 watt generator.. I also like the fact that the machine is alot lighter than my old whitco,, The only thing I have noticed is everytime I pull the trigger the burner coil seems to look like it is moving in its shell a little bit.. I would stay with the skid..
