only if that repair is something that gives you some kind of notice or symptoms. such as a leaking hose. when my cylinders retainer ring shattered (i found the pieces) there was no way at all of knowing it was going to happen.
I wasn't talking about the cylinders, it was a general statement
yes you herd. noone here on this site has actualy seen my welds. and being that iv only ever had a single part that i have ever welded fail, i would say my skills are able to do the job quite well.
It seems the way you're quick to defend and lack of pictures of you're welding skills leads people to believe they're lacking
how often do you find hoses go out? seems like a part that somewhat low failure rate.
They are a low failure item but having spares is cheap insurance
i agree. but im usually able to get it fixed and get my route completed. the downfall is quality of service moreso than price earned. which in the long run does cost time and money iself. but i do what i can with what i have and my service gets better as i make more money to invest into better equipment.
buying a 5k piece of equipment you dont have to worry about fixing is one thing, having 5k worth of spendable cash is another.
Your last two comments contradict each other, which is it? You claim to re-invest, then you say you don't. [/
