    I have a gang who invested in all the spray kit, They hit a very steep learning curve setting up the machine, flow rates etc & struggled to get up to''speed''
    their main prob being if they had a breakdown with genny or sprayer every one was standing idle!

    For all inside work they have gone back to the traditional hawk & trowel. But they have reinvested in a external machine & spray on Weber products on
    our timber frame projects.

    It breaks my heart to see how much they "EARN'' in a day. Often staying into the wee hours with a leaf blower to speed things up a tad.

    With a well trained team of 6 guys on a commercial job it can pay, But it seemed to us it's the manufacters who are pushing these machines & products.

    A good team of wetbacks hand jointing could turn out more in a day in my opinion!

    speedskims are ok on render or finish but you need to buy 2 if thats your plans as if you get a dink in the blade youll need the wet'n'dry out

    Thats my old man in the video. Does take a while to get your head around the machine but we have been doing 225m hits with 2 of us and a lab.

    Airless is awesome as well

    If you ever need a machine crew give me a bell captain
