Stanley;  That sounds like one of my BruinII I had.  One was great the other was a night mare.  Belts the longest I got was 200 hours, 2 diverter valves I could go threw 100 gallons on 350 sq. ft. if I had to move furniture. I would get about 1 hour out of 100 galloons of water.  The same when we used it for water extraction it went threw the same amount of water. They never were able to find the problems.  Not so with the 405's they are much more dependable.

actually the same machine...They stop making the bruinII because of the belts....the bruin II became the legend...and they never did fix the problem. 

 It sounds like the solenoid was gone on your unit...the gasket assembly inside which actually stops the water...so even though its closed water still gets sucked into the waste water tank. 

when to pay 95 dollars an hour ...you start to learn really fast how to fix it yourself....I feel sorry for those who don't have a clue

Stanley: the life expentcy of the Bruin II with the Kabota was about 8000 hrs. Is that the same for the air cooled Legend?  I was under the impression Pro Chem had taken all the bugs out when they changed to the Legend?  Is it necessary to have valve work on the air cooled model it's a 20 horse power isn't it?  I pesonally think they should have stayed with a water cooled engine.

I will certainly give you credit in the maintainence department.  That is a lot of hours to still be kicking.  Pro Chem wouldn't want to hear that. Not much wonder your blower is starting to get loud.  The are worth a couple of grand. what you have to watch if you change it is the replacemnet blower warranty.  It starts when it leaves the factory not when it is installed.  So if it goes order one don't take one ii stock.  I went threw that once the new one rattled and they tried to say I only had a coup[le weeks of warranty left.  Pro chem replaced the second one.

Whats a TM unit...some fancy switches....a blower and a pump...I found my problem anyways.....it was a leaky hose...from the blower to the rad heat converter...I change the hose recently...but I guess I didn't check the heat rating...it melted on one side....

But that could mean my blower is running to hot????and it is going...hmmmm I have an extra on the floor waiting for an install

Nice to see you back steamdragon. We have missed all that hot air and fire you were shooting. Funny you are back and your bud Steamer seems to be gone. But he will be back. He knows we can't live without his wisdom.
