Thanks guys. So think id prob need a ritmo powercoat or ritmo xl as most my work is on site so 110v is a must and would like to be able to spray finish and renders. Which is best? or is ther not much difference? and is there much difference in cost between the 2?
we just had a Ritmo L come in stock, your welcome to come for a demo. The XL is twice the size and wont pump pre bagged skims like thistle etcThanks guys.

Nope I don't care what you say I'd never swap my ritmo for a g4/5. The versatility and portability for me wins over any speed issues. I just love the way it always runs off any water supply above 1.5 bars without a water pump. Just plugs in to power with no tripping. Plus the fact that it's a pump or mixing pump with speed control which opens up the possibilities for a bit of exploration with different texture finishes. If anyones considering a machine the ritmo m is one that works for you and compliments your outfit with as close to plug n play as it gets. I mean it's still s**t loads quicker than by hand. It's a blinding bit of kit and it's coming out to play on a large parex ewi job starting tomorrow doing maite & dpr all machine applied(mixing & pumping).
Look for a lotus xs ideal for ewi work
Both the ritmo M and Ritmo Powecoat are the same machine. Both are available in 110V or 240V.
The ritmo M comes setup ready for rendering but you can buy the skimming setup for it.
The Ritmo Powercoat comes with the skimmming setup but you can buy the render setup for it.
We bought ours last year after the PFT roadshow thingy so got a 5% discount on the machine so it made more sense to get a powercoat then get the render setup as it discount on the machine was the greatest that way.
When we got ours we got the render setup, an av300 water pump, pressure testers and other bitsa and bobs aswell it came in at just over 9k inc VAT.
The 110v is great on site we plug direct in to site boxes using a 32amp plug as no one else uses them.
Skimming setup works well but you do need a good team around you to get the most out of it. You already get on well with Knauf stuff already and this is a good area to go in to now seeing they are only going to be producing machine appliable plasters from now on. I know it can be done by hand aswell but if Knauf see the future being machine applied plastering then this is what they will push to building contractors and hopefully we will be their to mop up the work :RpS_thumbup: We are getting tenders through for Mp finish work quite often now however many have been to large to take on ourselves eg 24000m2 + in Aberdeen.
Rendering is a piece of piss if your use to doing it by hand at the moment. Having a machine will help you move on and up date what methods you use. You can get the thin coat texture gun for the ritmo aswell, which i have seen in action and is awsome. 100m+ finished topcoat from one man in a day!

Having enjoyed the company of your Ex XL for a short while we have parted company on good terms and I am going shopping for a new ritmo (with skim set up and thin coat texture gun etc) I see you love your new one but Goody how is the M more versatile than the L?Get a ritmo m......most versatile of the lot......you will indeed love it and quite possibly plumtug all over it
