New thread as the old one got a bit muddled with comments ect.
2018 ritmo L just serviced.
20m air hose
40m water hoses
Long and short gun
2 month old generator ( briggs and stratton )
5250 ono ( cash, no VAT )
I am sick and tired of rendering, have done it for 8 years and while the money in good. Last year I had about 8 weeks off due to weather. Machine is a pain to carry around ect and I want to learn to be a proper plasterer.
I have done a fair bit of skimming to a reasonable standard at my home...
Pral M tomorrow.. same day or overnight..hmmm
Been lucky with fassa recently, but this contractor wanted pral m and its been ages.
Any one doing same day and getting done before dark ?
Its only 50 odd m2 at 15mm but is rendaided.
Whos used it ?
Ive sprayed it before, for dubbing out. Sprays well.
Ive been asked to price up a lime job, no dpc, had sand cement but fell off after 3 years.
Fassa say it can be i bared same as mono. Then floated. Would be easier than putty for sure.
Any one used it or similar bagged lime ?
A mate of mine is selling his ritmo L
Well used, but working perfectly. Always serviced annually.
Spray lance for mono
Hes just not using it, works for a firm which uses a g4 and hasnt used it for months due to not taking on any private...
I sacked my moody, useless mong of a labourer today, caught him on his phone again and got a load of lip.
I work out of essex/hertfordshire border.
I have a ritmo
I have lots of work.
Who wants a job ?
Id consider an older labourer who drives but im fed up with babysitting moody teenagers
Ok so ive been rendering 8 year nearly 9, started with mono but since have become fairly decent with thin coats, ocr and even done a few lyme jobs with good results.
I keep getting skimming work offered, and im considering learning to spread internals for when the weathers s**t.
Ive done a...
I want to buy a generator for the ritmo L. No problems spraying from the mains, but I wont always have access to mains power.
With the price of petrol, are diesel or even LPG generators worth a shot ?
Will be aiming for a 9kva maybe 10kva.
First day with the ritmo l today. Sprayed perfectly and got the job done with out fault.
Im up on the scaffold, labourers cleaning machine.
I hear the machine make noises it shouldnt, look over and the hopper has come undone when he pumped the last of the material in to the skip.
So I had a hand from a member called @vr12 yesterday, to do about 80m2 of fassacouche.
The guy turned up late, with no fuel for the genie looking like hed just smoked a joint.
I though ffs here we go.
So it turns out he didnt put accelerator in the barrel, wont use it apparently.
Would a Jub primer work over a painted sand and cement render ?
The existing render is nearly perfect, but the paint is flaking off as its 15 years old. Must have been done buy decent guys as it still looks reasonable despite this.
If I was to mono it, id use parex parinter, would that at 6mm...
Are there any differences between the european machines and uk ? The prices are well worth a day trip. Even...
Ive decided to go back on for a local firm, my vans f**k*d, im out of energy and money and i have no labourer.
Briggs and Stratton generator, serviced recently with a new alternator
20m electric lead
New spray lance with switch off 1 month old
So ive been using this for the first time these last few weeks.
Lovely gear to spray and rule, and a c**t to rub up.
Been shown how to get the most out of it by the firm im on for.
Split like f**k today, top lift only
Weber silver pearl at about 10-12mm over roughly 3mm rendaid.
Hairline cracks above window edges.
I used rendaid as it was lightweight blocks, should i be double meshing those stress points ?
G5c for sale on ebay. Compact version wothout a caddy.
The guy says the water pump is seized and it lets water through when idle.
For 1500 is it potentially a piece of scrap metal ?
M200 , 1 year old
Compressor 39 hours total sprayed.
2 month old 7kva generator with 22 months left on engine guarantee.
20m air and material hose
Spray lance with tool kit, sponge balls ect ECT.
Small water barrel.
12mm cap and 14mm.
After a few months with my m200, I can't help but regret not getting a bigger machine.
Don't get me wrong, the m200 is great, portable and easy to clean, but I'm being offered large site works, and it's more suited to domestics.
Id be looking for a g4, k4 or m300/30
I have the m200, 1 year...
Hi guys. Bit of a pain, been spraying really wet all of a sudden.
Spraying on 8 bar with 10m2 hoses.
Suddenly wet gear
I tightened the rotor and stator which helped it. For about a minute. Then wet.
I fitted a new rotor and stator today, same problem after 5 minutes spraying.
Ok so after sagging it off. I've been given a couple weeks of fassacouche work.
I seriously don't want to leave it on the wall overnight at this time of year.
It has to be this stuff as the contractors paying.
Also will it f**k my machine up? Or can I just flush it through after ?
I need a hand this Friday. My labourer will be on the m200 as usual gently pouring the bags in.
I ruled and sprayed 55 bags yesterday . Got 80 m2 to do Friday and could use a hand spraying or ruling and scratching.
I live near the m25 so can pick up
M200 Review from a three phase user.
I have been using three phase machines for many years, including the G4 and K4.
I've also used a putzmeister for about 6 months so was a little apprehensive about this machines output.
I bought my m200 nearly new.
i recieved a days training for free from...
Getting my m200 today.
I want to be self sufficient power wise and was wondering if a Honda gx270 5kva would be enough to run my 110v machine.
I don't want to rely on homeowners for power as it seems unprofessional.
I'd feel much happier with a dedicated power source.
Hoping for some input.
I've had recent success with two jobs completed and a third underway with Ryan's eze k4.
Great bit of kit and a faultless service from p1ss.
A few problems early on came from letting the machine any while ruling off each lift, resulting in a jammed stator.
Went to see these guys today to collect my eze k4 on hire.
Blown away by the service and the collective knowledge shared amongst Ryan and his staff.
The machine is great and I just felt right at home from the get go when I arrived.
They have just won a customer for life and I'll be buying...
Hi everyone. I'm sure this has been asked before so apologies there.
I'm doing a job where the builders bought k rend. I've not used it much before.
The weather's turning s**t again Friday night with Saturday being 0c where I am. So same day scrape isn't going to happen Saturday but I need to...
After being let down by a new starter last minute. I'm in desperate need of some help.
I've started on my own subbing for various firms with a few private jobs mixed in. I mainly apply monocouche render with some sand cement and skimming.
I live just North of London in cheshunt. 5...
As above really folks. I'm at the point where I've got more work than I can get on by hand. Everyone knows spraying mono is better so I've got to take the plunge.
Pft do a k4 with genie for 280 a week plus vat.
Or I could get a used g4 for 3k plus having to buy a 3 phase.
What would you...
My customer has asked if I could render an external rsj. Dodgy builder left it exposed.
I'm thinking cement board followed by maybe 8mm of monocouche but not too sure how to attach it.
Grab adhesive ? Drill and fix ?
Any advice is greatly appreciated.
