Hello to all... I've noticed many posts here asking about where to get sealcoating equipment. I've been in the business for 25 years, and I have some suggestions. I've learned many lessons over the years- so you get the benefit of learning from my mistakes. While it is tempting to save a few hundred (or couple thousand) dollars by having the local guy build your equipment (because he's built a few in the past)- I would STRONGLY recommend against it. In most cases, the reliability simply will not be the same as getting it from a reputable manufacturer- and it WILL cost you MORE money in the long run. I've owned equipment from all the major companies, and I truly believe that ABLE INDUSTRIES (Columbus, OH) makes the best. They've been in buiness since the early 80's (much longer than many others), and they really know what they're doing. They build GREAT equipment, their staff is very helpful, even well after the sale, and the prices are fair. Put very simply, I have made the most money by using Able's equipment- because it LASTS, and even if there is a minor problem, they can often get you up and running over the phone in no time. I know this sounds like a commercial, but I'm just offering up my experience for what it's worth. Good luck.
