    £650 a cut

    Three of us, I'm the one with the big bollox who prices and funds the fiasco, I don't work as hard as I used to which suites me Sir, we try and make 260 each for rendering in middle England but usually fall short, nice lifestyle though.

    Strata mp025

    Might be your start up procedure, as in too much water when you first prime mixing tube, if you put too much water in it impedes powder flow to chamber, try reducing it. I have never used a strata pump but try it and see if it helps with continuity. The above comments don't mean any harm, they...

    Second gap while spraying

    Second gap while spraying

    It will cause problems Tramp, the mixing process in the chamber is a delicate part of a mixerpumps operation, the powder introduction would be compromised creating issues. I have been using machines for a long time and have made every f**k up possible.

    Second gap while spraying

    Just cover the rotor head with water on initial start up, water inlet pipe on the top inlet. When you first put water to pump, open main outlet tap and and fill a bucket to bleed air out of line.

    Hardwall

    Gentlemen, for some reason beyond my comprehension mixing hardwall through a continuous mixer or mixerpump ( lotus XS or ritmo) means it don't set quick enough on the wall in order to skim it same day and move on the next, it always sets in the mixing chamber which causes issues, have tried...

    Johnsons base coat

    Using parex maite at present on a large scale project , we don't spray it, too messy and loads of windows, we have a PFT lotus xs mixer, every man goes to mixer fills tub to his needs when he wants then lugs it up scaffold himself when required, seems to work for us. Exterior skimming really.

    Ritmo l slimline

    To start pump with k-rend I prime mixing chamber as usual then add a little powder and mix it with a screwdriver in the bottom before fitting mixing paddle, it seems to help initial start up.

    PRB Rendering Materials

    We used weber for a long long time, any product we've used from PRB are comparative quality wise, the machines like it and P1 delivery works for us. Parex seemed too complicated to source colours and quantity from encon, good products though. Weber now do half pallets from minsters but PRB is...

    G5 vs G4

    Parts are still available, keep filters cleans and replace wear parts when needed, but get a good generator to power it, don't skimp and get a 12kva is my advice. ryan does a good 20kva at P1 shop.

    Got a little ritmo M but the other day it kept tripping fuseboard on a private house which had been updated, spoke to sparky and he said sometimes the RCD in a new board is too sensitive or the wrong rating, using a 3 phase pump is much easier if your putting on over 40 bags I'd say, the ritmo...

    Anyone with experience from previous recessions/hard times

    Hard times get rid of all the wankers in the game, if you can't afford a van you perhaps need to work for someone on the cards, being a self employed plasterer might not suit you, it's not for everyone just work for a firm.

    Putzmeister P13 pumping problems from Africa.....

    Difficult to say, 4:1 obviously more economical, what problems are you having? A P13 is a piston type pump so maybe your prep before pumping may hinder you objective, lube everything well, hoses too.
