    I was looking at this sealcoat machine on asphalt kingdom. I am adding this to my landscaping services. I have a spare trailer I can mount this on with a gas can and tool rack. I think that part will work pretty well. My question is. Is this system ok for a starter system. What kind of material should I use in the northeast(massachusetts), and can anyone recommend a good wholesale distributor either in northern RI or southern Mass. I really don't want to spend a ton of money on a system. I just want to get something to start me out and then see how it goes. This thing might be for sale in 6 or 7 months if I don't get a good amount of work out of it. If I get a lot of work I may buy something bigger later. I am looking to start with mostly residential or small commmercial with this machine, basically to learn the business and get comfortable with pricing. Anyways any advantages or disadvantages you guys see to the machine on this link would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance for your help.

    There are threads here, that talk about this system, and this company. Use the search feature, or look back in the threads. The system, or the tank is illegal in my area, so it is not a system we have here, and have heard many opinions on it. I'd check out used such systems, and see what the resale might be worth. Good Luck.
