    That little lot used to be mine. I sold them to him last year and he's not used them as he has no Canon.

    The big pump itself I only used a few times, because most of the jobs I was doing had poor access or no stairs in and it's quite a lump to be lugging around. I bought a Cinta drywall pump to fill the tools with which has a longer stroke than normal pumps and more portable, so didn't need the Apla-pump. The coaters worked ok but in my opinion didn't leave as good a finish as a box. Apla-tech have now developed a box for the Canon which gives you the finish, the speed and is easier on your body too. Anybody that buys that lot will need a Canon which at the moment new is a good 8-900.

    Its hard enough to get power on site to mix a few pales of gear, never mind that beast.
    I think site conditions dictate what you can use and in my opinion I don't think they will take off over here due to drying times etc

    Houses, flats, commercial. Whatever i'm asked to do. I had a lot of work on when I originally bought the Apla-tech kit, and it paid for itself in a short time. We were doing large luxury flats and using the tools shaved 2 days off a flat, even from day one. The only power issue with the kit is for the compressor that runs it. I bought a larger compressor than needed and powering it was hard sometimes, especially with all the other trades using chopsaws and stuff. On the larger sites, I plug into the 32 amp supply as nobody else generally uses it and it all works fine.

    the coaters are marketed as a finishing weapon but they are more of an application tool i reckon. That guy on the video sold me but i dont think the wet n dry wall boys even liked them.
    Maybe one day artexing or texturing will be back in vogue and the pump will have its day or it could be adapted to outside thincoat texturing for renderers
