Default New to forum and to the buisness

Here is a little about my background.

I been in the construction business for 22 years. I have move up from Labor all the way up to Project manager for a GC. My biggest job was a $17 million renovation for Penske. Now at 45 years old I decided to try my lock at running my own company.

What I do is basically maintenance for car dealerships. I been in business on my own for about a year and my clients keep asking me to expand my field.

I been ask to do some painting for 2 of my clients. One is a 60000 sq ft body shop both interior and exterior the other is a Quick Lanes about 35000 sq ft same work detail. Office area we need to paint office walls and metal doors, shop area ceilings with Dryfall , walls and metal doors. In the exterior we are doing block walls, garage doors, metal doors and bollards. All Weekend work...

My question is what equipment should i buy? first 2 options are gas power, 3 option is electric
I am looking at a:
1) Titan Advantage GPX 220 for $2800 have not been use in 4 years
2) Airlessco SL6200 for $2150 unit has just been completely rebuilt
3) Graco Mark V Pro for $2900 refurbished by SW
4) Or do you have another option same price range

Thank you

Ps: I have 2 painters in my staff with 7 years of experience spraying

Both of them are Graco guys. I am just trying to make sure I get the best possible deal. I have seen many people set on their ways and because of its never improved.

I am in the same situation as u. I think becuse u are working inside u need an electronic pump.

I'm trining to figure out myself what works best a big pump and run 2 lines or 2 smaller pumps that can handle heavier material?

I'm sure some of the people here with more expensive can help.


Good luck
