    obviously you have to have a big run, but i figure it is 3 times faster than auto tools, and runs seemlessly, with sensors which automatically trigger the pump when you start running the boxes.

    from what i can remember this never ran seamlessly, wasn't there an issue with the radio signal from the controller to the pump?

    your continued support and helpful comments are much appreciated marcus. I am toying with the idea of promoting the BFast again. The only issue I had with it was no one wanted to part with the cash to buy one (bar 2 customers) due to the crash. The sensor issue was resolved by making sensors suitable for european radio frequency, (when they tested the European sensors in the states it shut down all the cell phones within 200 yards of it, so hardly surprising the american frequency didnt work so well here). I have had some queries recently, and there still seems to be interest in the applatech system.
    I ran it for a few days 3 weeks ago on a job and it reminded me of just how fast it is. once it is all said and done it is pretty comparable in price to the aplatech system, and much more user friendly and effective. To make it worthwhile it just needs a big run of work. i would appreciate any comments.

    this is worth looking at as well. (even if the boards are laid down). Though all you detractors may notice there is only 1 joint on the wall, i think yank tapers get it a bit easier, the hangers get stuck with the 12' sheets to put up.

    That guy looks like he picked that machine up a few minutes before making that video.

    We pick up a lot of large commercial work 15000 M + & I have often looked at the pumped systems
    as they seem so quick. I have been put off by a couple of factors though.

    1 The price,

    2 The Maintenance Set up & clean up,

    3 How well they would work with scissor lifts, Trailing hoses etc.

    4 Retraining the work force

    On a smaller scale you could end up running out of work in a day as you would be waiting for drying.

    We send 2 guys with a set of tools which they put in a wet tank in the van & they are off home,
    tools are jet washed between jobs or as lately when put away for a while,
    Milk No Sugar.

    yeah i reckon you should start really promoting it again, especially how well it sold last time and the price makes it a really attractive set up ! as for the continual support - would be rude of me to say thanks for ours!
