    If you want to sell a bunch of them just build yourself a website and use pictures from the guys website that you bought them from. Thats what Metro did for a while


    But i do think the unit will work fine as a starter unit. Not a whole lot that can go wrong!
    I think im going to look for something in the 10 gallons a min. so i can go a little faster

    Now thats funny :) You would have to do them for free to take them from me cos i do all my stuff for "next to nothing" Im lower than the low ballers !!!!!! LOL

    Metro, Im not bashing you, i think i even said the equipement would work good in the right application. If i didnt need to do some bigger sites i would probably buy a couple.

    These were meant to be geared toward smaller contractors that are not doing "mall" sized lots. It is meant to be an affordable unit to get guys to try liquids. If someone needs a bigger unit, there are many out there. This is basically a starter unit. I think 10 MPH in a parking lot is fast enough. Besides, I pretreat up to 12 hours before the storm, so all we have to do is plow afterwards.
