Basic reason, no sore subject for us. We used to sell PFT machines and we no longer do, but we traded with that name for years and built a good relationship with our customers. Not because of what brand we sold but what we offered.
PFT is a good brand, but we chose M-tec in the end, for a large number of reasons and in all honesty, it was the riskiest but best decision we could have made
We mainly focus on Plasterers 1 Stop Shop as our brand name
The M200 IMO is your best bet. Pumping distance and output is greater and you have no restrictions when it comes to power. A customers cooker socket won’t always be available and you do have restrictions on site and with insurance using 240v. I know some get away with it, but your investing 8-9k, I would rather be 100% than taking a gamble.
The transformer plugs directly into the socket, machine and air compressor into the transformer and that’s you sorted. Obviously running from a gene will eliminate any potential issue about others using the power etc so it’s a safer bet but not essential
I’m confident in saying, for the last 2 years the M200 has dominated the market and its been the best selling machine. And the way this year has started, we are set to grow again.
The main thing you also need to look at is who will be there to support you. We have 5 dedicated technicians who can either help over the phone or at our depot, we also have a guy on the road.
Alongside this, we have more depots opening around the country who will all be able to offer this service and support
