I watched this a couple of weeks ago from a link posted on Drywall Talk. It looks like the business, really well designed and put together. There is no mention of price though, so I reckon that is going to be frightening. I agree you'd need a good few metres to warrant getting it dirty.

It does look good.
But no price. And don't think anyone would stock over here. I could be wrong.

Makes you wonder if theyre coming into the CFS market to take out Apla_Tech.
Just thinking thats all..... :sneaky:

I'd like to see one man (trying to) lump that around on jobs. Sorry, but I aint buying one and probably couldnt afford it anyway.

The unit is a graco tmax and to be fair very light weight compared to upright pump unit - the whole thing comes apart in to three or four pieces so in theory would fit in the back of any car !

I heard it was 8 or 9 thousands dollars American, you guys can do the conversion, I would not touch it unless I was doing high rise condo's or something like that. It is also a machine you should run a crew with. So that makes it debatable, since machines are to replace labourers....in one sense.....so do you invest in more labour and standard machines, or go for it .....hhhhhmmmmm???????

i was just in vegas for the AWCI show and had a chance to play with it. i think the price tag was more like $14,000.00. It definitely looks good, they have hijacked the bfast technology and modified the design to work better, and included a taper to go with it. the taper worked beautifully and the boxes looked excellent as well, bit on the heavy side as they used steel for some reason for the handles.... the pump is based on a tmax with a much bigger fluid section for more power, but it doesn't come apart as the feed comes straight out of the pump so you would have to unscrew that first. i'd love to sell them but at that price it would have to be to royalty! it seems like apla-tech has straightened out all their issues with the cfs system, i have had some really good reports on tehm lately, at less than 2/3rds the price
