I agree guys! Commercial jobs require a Professional.. like some of you obviously are, but I was speaking of the common homeowner when I said that they don't know anything about Sealcoating except to just look for the cheapest price.

I've had to recirculate a tanker with 4000 gallons in it. it takes hours to mix it into something resembling mixed coal tar. and thats taking the hose and dumping it back into the furthest spot away from where it is sucking it out of the tank. i would have to bet your recirc line dumps back right on top of where it sucks it out, doesnt it.

Dude were talking 125 to 275 gals. here not 4,000 yeah that would take a very loooong time, come on be real here thats like comparing apples to oranges and yes it dumps into the top but again it's 275 gals. not 4,000 so in theory it should only take several minutes right. It's great that your doing airports, i highly doubt that you have time for small parking lots let alone driveways. Some people say that a recirculating system can't spray sand, then tell me why i have to keep replacing my tip when the pattern starts to have lines of sealer on the outside edge of the pattern after running a tank full.

if your tip wears out after 275 gallons, then you are using cheap tips too.

This is the best thread ever....

Finally a few guys who used this system vouch for it.

I'm going to make one because of this thread. I wanted to before but no one would really step up in front of the board and say it. Tractor Supply is a few miles from my house.

Thanks for all the info DJ Contracting.

Peace,
Gary

Damn

This is why I don't visit lawn site to often. This place is full of little girls boo hooing about nothing at all. I f I wanted this crap I would of failed high school 6 years ago and stayed there.
Come on people it's time to grow up and just give good decent advice, if you don't like what you see or read then voice your opinion don't get your thong in a bunch cause someone doesn't agree with what you say.

The guys with the $20,000.00 machines think giving good advice means calling people fools and gypsies if they do any sealing with lesser equipment.

Good for them, but I was here to LEARN how to make a spray machine and then become COOL like them. Sorry that a little guy AS THEY WERE AT ONE POINT wants to make some coin as well. quit being little girls. It's a damn forumn that is supposed to help people not degrade them.
