Phil, if you choose to make the 'cap fit' then
good for you.
'I think that feedback given is a little hard for some people to accept', a statement made on
my thoughts, thats why it opens with, 'I think'
I am amazed that you can turn that around into putting words into peoples mouth's.
I suppose if you look hard enough, you can squeeze a little negativity into any comment made!
In point of fact I actually did the job with Goron I have been away with the little people over in Ireland for a few days so was not aware of this post until I came back today.
Mike I agree with your drying times post, but it was actually dry in around 30 minutes, 5 or ten miuntes either way, the customer was impressed as he said he had been the manager from the day the site opened and this was only the second clean in 8 years, (not sure why I thought they were contracted to be cleaned more often.)
I places the carpets were black and shiny with some pretty bad spillages as well. The machine performed very well, As the majority of the time Goron runs a truck mount, its nice to know he was impressed with a protable.
If this reads like an add I'm not going to apologise, its simply a personal take on the job and advantageous to any-one looking to upgrade at the any time
Best regards Nick

I have a 6 kva diesel genny which came from another business I had. We use it for backup at home as we live in the sticks on the end of a long overhead line and have power cuts at the drop of a hat.
It makes an incredible noise and makes a tm seem quiet, its ear muffs within 20 ft.
I use orange caravan power leads with 16a connectors on my machines. I have 2* 3mt and 2*25 mts. The long ones give plenty of power as they are considerably heavier than standard extentions. We sometime have to run a lead to a lower floor in offices as the rings wont carry enough for the mc on the same level. A lot cheaper and quieter than a genny to run or buy.
Lending out products that you want to sell is a great selling technique. ( With the exception of cheese items) I use it all the time in my business. Obviously you have to be confident about your product. Clients are always impressed that you are willing to trust them with thousands of pounds worth of stuff. Even if the demo is unsuccesful you can bet that your benevolent gesture will be the mentioned at every opportunity. For any business a happy customer is worth at least a weeks press advertising.
Of course you have to get it right. The garage next door to my shop has just taken on the Subaru agency. They gave me the keys to one of those bright blue ones with a wing on the back. I drove it half a mile and noticed the fuel guage was on empty. I turned round and drove back to the garage and ran out of petrol just as I turned into the car park. (they're offering £3000 worth of free petrol if you buy one now)
Keep posting your oppinions lads.
It's the only way that a c/c like myself, living in a remote location can form an oppinion. It would be totally impractical for me to borrow a piece of equipment.
If someone disagrees with your oppinion they are perfectly entitled to voice their oppinion on this board.
