If you have no use for the old Butler, why go look at it? I guess the blower, pump, and tanks would be nice.

I am pretty certain that this drive shaft will out-live what is left in this van. The first one lasted 10,000 hours.

I pushed it hard all day today too. Two houses and then finished off with a 10,216 sqft theater lobby....all solo too. Van was flawless....me, I'm sitting here with an ice bag on my knee. Very Happy

Thanks, good to be back!

Still going to end as a bad month financially, but I will be cleaning that second theater tonight, a mold inspection tomorrow, and a daycare on Wed., so the first half of this week is rolling along well.

Second theater done.....just under 400 seats, a little over 5,000 sqft carpet, 2 people, in just over 5 hours!!!  We were rocking and even though the kid is half my age, I finished my half first!

Good to be back on the job! Peace

That is a big job congrats on finding it. Did you do it yourself or do you have many employees?

I always bring a second animal with me. Bending over theater seats can make you old quickly.

Vinyl...in a theater? Do you not have fire codes out there?

Seats are normally wool or a poly with fire retardant added. I hope nobody sneaks a smoke in your vinyl theater.

Brownie boy, go to your local fast food and when you order your food, observe the employees, sometimes you get lucky and see one person that's really efficient and all you have to do is give him your # and when he calls, just offer him $ 12 - $ 15 / hour and most likely they will be super happy and will work hard for you, let them know that carpet cleaning is a very hard work and test them out for a couple of days, if it doesn't work, keep hunting.

I found this one stocking shelves at night for the local grocery chain. Young guy with 2 young kids to feed and a desire to get off nights.

He asked me for the job....been working out great so far. Not sure what will happen if things go dead in the fall though.
