Whats in the Tool Box
Permalink  
 


This is for some of you new guys just starting out. You are going to need Tools and Supply's for your trucks. Here's some of the basic stuff you need to carry. Always buy the same brand Couplers and Plugs. I like Hanson plugs and couples, Bob at Pressure Tek and Paul at the Power Wash store has them in stock. Always buy extra, they don't last!

Nice video Art!..You need all those things at some point,..better to HAVE it than wish you had it. I tell anyone in ANY business,..always have tools,.. and spares of "wear" type parts.

"Wear" parts,..I guess that's just about everything in this business!!  Trucks, Vans, Trailers, Engines, Pumps and even people,..

Art,

Love the Long Island accent. Sometimes I forget(old age) I'm from New York City.

This video is what it is all about. I carry extra roof pumps, battery, guns, etc on the truck. There is nothing more embarrassing than not having a spare part/pump when you are doing exterior cleaning work. A customer will lose confidence in your abilities.

That's helpful for everyone. I'm getting ready to make a small change in the truck for the water proof tool box as well as other things. One thing is for sure... I don't get any tools I like and leave them in the truck. The somewhat cheap ones will work.

Don't use the guns with the GD long tubes on them! Love it!

The modular shelving on the right I built for different size boxes. Has everything you could ever need parts tools oddities especially!  It's a mobile shop whether it's painting, construction, power washing and of course softwashing. My current softwash system is a mobile unit I just roll in,out as needed. Unfortunately I don't have a pic in my phone. I'll try to see if it's on my camera as my laptop is bustedno

Why not Pat? You just might find extra parts overnight. Sure if you use 3/4"couplers they might start out as 1/4, but give them time, they'll grow up!
