  2. keep searching the web for a used one. new ones are about $700-1300 for the 10 gallon walk behinds. Not sure what shipping or customs would be like having it go to canada.

    the 30 gallon stationary ones are good too, more capacity, then you can use a pour pot or banding machine and U or V squeegee to apply and smooth the material.

    the 10 gallon walk behind is ok, a lot of people use them, including myself, but its big and bulky, you have to push 10 gallons of material, a propane tank, plus the actual machine around, sort of sucks. it is terrible when woking on hills.

    The 10 will get me by for now.
    i'll be buying a 30 gallon mid-season.

    I am just trying to get myself a second one and have a 10 gal walk behind just looking to set up a 2nd trailer and I don't like the 30 gal melter and pour pots.
