I watched this whole video…. and I agree customers might notice nicer signs. But unless I missed something the 360 and the 4000 are the exact same right? No notable improvements? All the differences might not even be good right? Chain driven? Removing the boom? Plus removing the T-bar? This at least keeps the car remotely in a straight line?
The wheels have to be inflated the same so the unit runs correctly…. but the chain is basically the same? Unless it drags the unit? 🙂 You would have tire ware still and eventually the unit would misread I would think? The flexing of the chemical lines I would think would have to be worse on the chain setup? But I understand the boom setup would be more expensive and is uglier…. I guess? The T-bar is the worse idea… unless the new unit comes with rails? Also the virtual treadle I think it a gimmick…. but it would be good to avoid a switch I guess? But you will end up putting a speed bump in for your customers I would think?
Also looks like there example in the video has additional Laser 4000 dryers? Maybe on-board dryers are not that great…. why knows? (But I am not a PDQ expert.) You really don’t need great dryers or any dryers if you have good ro I would think? Looks like pdq uses 8020.net components for there stands? I have never seen one mounted from the ground though.
I think the reason there are no real improvements noted in the video between the two units is because they sold upgrades to the older Laser 4000? I’m not sure I was just surprised with the lack of improvement noted on the video. I would think something like “now with 6 arms” or rotating nozzles? Higher pressure? Can clean a car slower or faster? Uses 10x the chemical as the older Laser 4000? JK I really do not care…. I think the arm looks better and that is important. But you can probably purchase a retro fit for that also? You would be surprised with what an operator thinks is important and what a customer even notices.
I do think the remote operation is unique? But someone sells an add on for the PDQ 4000? Maybe PDQ? 🙂
