Now that the forklift is rewired back in operation it was time to see if the steamer even worked. Been meaning to do this for a long time but time sorta flies you know. :tounge2

I started with cleaning up under the front floor of the forklift at 180 degrees and it worked great, the burner was cycling like it was supposed to and it even spent more time off than on. It's also very quiet. I turned it up to 200 and it worked even better than I ever imagined. This model shuts off the burner and pump when you let go of the trigger and restarts when you pull the trigger. I can't believe something can heat up water so fast and easily. :woo

I called dad and he brought his truck up here and I did under the hood of his truck and experimented with bugs on the grille and they melted right off, it even cleaned the white letters on his tires like new without using any chemicals at all.

Next up were the Wheel Horse trucks I had for many years. I sold them both this week and decided to clean them up too. The hard caked on grease melted right off everywhere, again with no chemicals. After everything dried it would actually squeak with your finger so now things could go right in the blaster if need be. The purple power, orange cleaner and carb cleaner expenses are now gone for the most part. :thumb1

I am really impressed with this machine and should have done it much sooner. :smile2

On another note the customer service from where I bought it from, L+H Industrial in Georgia, sucks with a capital S so if anyone buys one check out where you buy it from first and steer clear of these people... As of yesterday the storage fees, if the panels and frame show up and the labor to replace them makes us even. I don't like the fact that I was put on the back burner after the sale (and still am) and the trouble I've gone through, that it is beat up a little and may never receive the panels, but either way I like it for free. I will prob go on and take it off of the pallet soon and put it to work lol. :laughing

You can lead a horse to water but you can't make him drink.

Took a little time today to finally get the hose reel on.  It was always a real headache putting the hose up, after seeing how easy this is I wish I made the time to do it about 3 years ago when it got here... 

I also found the quick change 6 pattern spray head I've been looking for for years.  It was on one of the old pressure washers in the back that are out now and getting ready for CL, so now it's on the steamer.  The old hose holder also made a nice place to put the spray wand.
