Right now I am part time guy trying to be as professional as possible ...I am running a 4000psi 4gpm machine which has worked very well for what I do....I am hauling around a 6×10 trailer but I have had several jobs in new developments where there is no parking at all ..at least not without blocking in the neighbors...does anyone one have pics of a small footprint set up ?? Really considering buying a Dodge Dakota...or a Ford ranger and setting everything up in that.....I am just doing residential as of now down the road if I get more work I still have the trailer or could upgrade....can this be done in away to have everything I need and look legitimate???
Should also let everyone know that I have an older for expedition that I thought of pulling the back seats out of and using it as a compact set up ...any thoughts or examples of converted suv???
I have a small van set up just for that issue in even one of my locations, Inside is a 400lt buffer tank, 7 gallon machine and a hose real with 70mt or 200ft of high pressure hose. These vans do everything our larger rigs do just not hot water.
One of our setup's is a pickup with a 100 gallon buffer tank in the back, 5.6 gpm machine, 200ft of high pressure hose and 100ft of water hose. I like having this setup as we can just hook up to our trailer which has a similar setup and run dual operators or if its just a easy day just take the truck and your in and out pretty quick. We deal with heavy traffic in the summers so parking and the ability to get in and our quickly is a concern for us as well. It works good also if your looking to get faster (not sure if you have a direct drive machine or a belt drive) look into a 5.6gpm pump. It will increase your production and will give you a higher reach with just a pump swap. Shoot me a message if you have any questions. All the Best!
Pretty nifty flat bed setup at 8:15-
Their commentary is pretty funny, too. Didn't realize they mentioned me, lol.
I want one of these for my roof rig.
Cdubbs I used to want one for washing car lots, They are very expensive for what they are.
Would you happen to have a picture of your truck rig? I just purchased a gx390 belt fed. I'd like to not use a trailer. I looking for a small efficient layout for my 8ft bed. Minus toolbox room.
Just built this and love it. Waiting on my slide out for my hose reals that will be on the right side.
Love how it all fits under the tonneau cover. And the slide out for the reels is ingenious.
How much hose are you using with your xjet pail?
Awesome setup. I'm hoping to set up something similar in the near future. What size is your truck bed? From my calculations everything should fit in by bed but you never know until is all put together.
Here is my little setup... it's not much but it works for right now intill I can get a trailer..
Looking good. I just hate the idea of hauling ( and trying to find parking) for a trailer. My trucks not huge but some of the coastal communities I work in have horrible parking. Small driveways and way too many people.
I would rather have a trailer!!!!! That's coming next .. need to free up room in my truck so I can do other stuff
