Hi all! I’ve been thinking I want to build a truck setup this fall instead of towing a trailer, and adding it all up and hours of drawing layouts and whatnot.
But today I was talking to my boss about a trailered jetter we rarely use. I had some interest when I offered him $4k for it; I think if I pressed the issue I could make it happen. I’d have to change a few things to make it a PW rig, and would most likely sell one of the Honda/Udor pumps to lower my price even further.
Here’s what I know about it:
-I estimate less than a thousand hours on everything because it’s rarely used
-It has not been well maintained
-It has two Honda GX670’s and two Udor 7gmp/4000 psi gear-drive pumps
-One pump has a milky sight glass, one is clear
-Everything starts and runs well
-Brakes on the trailer currently don’t work
-One big Hannay electric pressure reel
-One Cox reel
-200ish gallon buffer
I would most likely sell the Honda/Udor with the clear sight glass for around $1500 and use that money for new unloader, misc. hardware. Then either repair the milky Udor pump or just replace it.
Everything started and ran fine a few months ago, but the battery is dead so I didn’t get an exact engine-hour readout. Pics are below.
Is it even worth it to try and change this over to a PW setup, especially now that I’d be stuck towing?
