I just started my little biz with my MYTEE and Rotovac,I have done two jobs so far and they were not big at all and it seemed like the jobs took a long time,I am very new though and want to do a good job.
I used the rotovac on the whole job though and I know that was part of why the jobs took so long.
How quick are some of you guys and do you have any tips for me?
Thanks,Doug

I do millions of square feet a year with portables. One thing buyers don't think about is the size of the tank. If you had to pay $1,000 more for a machine with a tank that was only 4 gallons larger but was exactly the same as a cheaper model, would you pay it?  Most buyers would answer no. That's the wrong answer, because you'll pay many times more than that over the next decade for the extra labor spent filling and dumping that cheaper model.
