  • Biography
    I am 67 years of age. I have 26 years invested in the power washing industry.
  1. deck cleaning?

    6.5 oz. per gallon.
  2. "At Will" or "Right To Work" States

    Same in Texas. Many people construe the term "Right to Work" to mean that you have a guaranteed job. Not so!
  3. water in pump oil?

    As Russ said most types of oil will foam to some degree. Detergent oil has a tendancy to foam more. If it isn't milky it probably doesn't have water in it.
  4. Thank You All

    On a warm summer day in August of 1984 my career in the power washing industry began as an entry level employee for RAHSCO Mfg. Company. My job consisted of testing new pressure washers prior to their delivery to the new owners. Coming from a background in high speed manufacturing of beverage cans for the previous 18 years this wasn’t much of a challenge considering I had been supervising a multibillion dollar operation with more than a hundred employees. So needless to say I quickly became bored with my newly found career and began looking for a way to utilize my past experience to bring growth to my new employer. I continued this cycle for 26 years. Times changed, faces changed, people prospered, companies grew and some people left the industry. The industry has grown stronger and will certainly outlive those of us who cared for it in its infancy. Now nearly 27 years from that August day it is time for me to bid a fond farewell to the thousands of people that have been so good to me over the years and to thank you so much for making my life in the power washing industry such a happy one. The month of December will be my last to work in this industry. I will try to monitor the industry bulletin boards and will be reachable through my facebook page should anyone wish to discuss pressure washers or anything for that matter. Till Then Larry Hinckley
  5. Foam-a-Matic foamer...

    The airless foamers have been our most popular by far. They out last all the rest and are virtually maintenance free.
  6. For some reason I can't post any where on the board. Have I been bad? Please help me.

    Uncle Larry

  7. Doug, You bought that machine in the 90s. Haven't you worn it out yet? Larry
  8. We have many of our videos back on Facebook. We are sorry for the necessity of taking them down for awhile but the need to edit them was beyond our control. Many of them are now finished and more will be as time goes on. The following link will take you there: http://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=delux+cleaning+supply&suggested_categories=27&page=1
  9. Just as the mythical bird rose from the ashes you can revive your career and fly into the future. I know that the world economy is in a mess but that doesn’t change our basic needs or desires. We still need to earn a living and many of us have much loftier ambitions. “Yes but how” you ask. When... http://www.facebook.com/notes/delux-...34631313228677
