THE TOP MISTAKE MADE WHEN BUYING A RIDE-ON FLOOR SCRAPER
In our last post What Makes a Great Ride-on Floor Scraper, we talked about the main characteristics that make a great machine. In this post, we want to look at the top mistake that is made when people are looking at which unit will suit them best. It's simple really.
COMPARING WRONG MODELS WITH EACH OTHER
It is absolutely crucial that you are comparing the correct models. We run into this problem all of the time with customers who are looking for more information on our Ride-on Floor Scraper. It is important that you don't just listen to the equipment Salesman, but also go out and do your own research. Watch some videos about the units you are comparing and many times, you will be able to see the difference yourself.
WHAT TO LOOK FOR WHEN COMPARING
1. PRODUCTION RATES
This is one of the most important elements to compare. If a machine has the capability to remove 30% more material per hour, that is a huge benefit to you as a contractor. This will mean less money spent on labor and you can complete more jobs in the same amount of time.
Sometimes a higher initial cost can be frightening, but if you are going to have a machine that performs better, you will make a much better long term decision.
2. FEATURES INCLUDED
Like any other purchase you make, you will always have different features available in some models, and not in others. As we all know, features cost money. It is important that you evaluate what benefit the added features will have for your company.
For example, you don't need to pay extra for a TV mount on your machine, but variable speed would be a great asset as it increases the versatility of the Floor Scraper considerably.
So there you have it. If you make sure you are evaluating comparable units, you will be on your way to purchasing a great Ride-on Floor Scraper that will increase your job capacity and profits.
