Re: MMLJ Vs Geoblast


Good Day Gentlemen. I am a newbee here so wanted to say hello. I have a Dustless blaster DB250, and I can't even tell you how flawless this piece of equioment is. I purchased 2 months ago, and have done aprox. 14 jobs with it so far. As far as the water and abrasive consumption, this is all controlable via the handle and knob on the top of the unit. I have blasted cranes in boat yards, to structural steel inside a building, and know one has ever complained baout the "Mess". Anyway that's my 2 cents. I am a full time owner, and this is the only blasting pot I own.

Re: MMLJ Vs Geoblast


Just purchased the DB500 Mobile Unit. Went to Texas to pick it up and was very impressed with the factory. I researched all the blasters and found the MMLJ DB500 mobile unit worked perfect for my needs. It's easy to use unlike many other blasters just mix 20 gallons of water with 200 pounds of media and off you go. Have already made $5k in one week. My only complaint is the business package, don't get it. After and I repeat AFTER I purchased the business package I was told I would have to purchase all future advertising directly though MMLJ in order to use the logo and the term Dustless Blasting. But as far as the equipment it's great and so is the tech help, just ask for Mike.

A lot of used DB500s for sale over on DustlessBlasting Facebook page.

Seems guys come into the business thinking they're going to clean up and most are selling their stuff for 1/4 of what they paid for it after 6 months when they realize the money isn't there.

JustSayen.

We moved away from automotive and now concentrate on commercial works only. We have a DB1500 running 400CFM.

Bigger jobs but with the 1500 we get long trigger times.

Re: MMLJ Vs Geoblast


Hi there,

we bought two DB800 two years ago and still using them with success. Our on going job is on a suspended bridge towers and we are planning to build our own robotic unit that can carry a nozzle with swinging action. Any experience with those systems?

Re: MMLJ Vs Geoblast


Hi all,
New to the forum. Looking at potentially picking up a blasting setup to supplement income on nights and weekends. I do rental rehabs and such so have a decent network to tap for residential type work and live close to a lot of Marinas on Lake Michigan. Hopefully this thread isn't too dead yet, I had a couple of related questions:
I like the idea of being able to blast wet or dry--be more versatile. But, if I were only to vapor blast, it seems Geo is a crowd favorite.

Looks like Graco recently merged the geoblast and ecoquip product lines. Anybody have any experience with the new line? It looks pretty decent and they have a couple pretty small/portable units. Obviously limited in capacity, but handy to get around.

Secondly, I was poking around the dustless blasting website and noticed this recent post:
https://www.dustlessblasting.com/blo...-works-on-wood
It indicates their unit can blast dry or wet. Is this a new feature to their line? Anybody who has one able to confirm this? I reached out to them with a few questions the other day but haven't heard back.

Also, what are the opinions on Clemco's Wetblast Flex system? Seems to be set up similar to the ecoquip units, but with water injected after the pot, and allowing a wet or dry choice. Anyone have one of these?

Thanks all--you are a wealth of knowledge and experience!

Its been awhile hope all is well, getting a GB400

Quick question looking at getting a 750 CFM compressor do you think the GeoBlaster can handle that volume? Concern is it only hits 100psi

Re: MMLJ Vs Geoblast


BlasterJim, did you sell your Geo? Care to share likes or dislikes and any consumption data for us new guys to use to compare Geo(Graco now) against MMLJ or other wet systems? Anyone else that can share insightful data to help? I've been small stuff and old no name sand pot but going to expand and try to make money now. I'm thinking a Geo system along with a 6.5 cu ft pressure hold electric controls dry pot with TV2 and a 375 compressor to start. What's everyone's opinion, am I'm greatly mistaken in this approach? Thanks for input ahead of replies.

Re: MMLJ Vs Geoblast


From what you said it sounds like you are a sole proprietor. I think the 375 compressor is way overkill. I use a 185 and it is covers all my needs. I shoot houses, boats, cars, and
concrete. I have never needed to use larger than a 3/8 nozzle and that is the max a 185 can supply at 90psi.

Re: MMLJ Vs Geoblast


Thanks nonobadog, I'm sure your right. I tend to go big unnecessarily sometimes. I was thinking if I bought used comp with 5000 hrs and it is only 80% efficient then add hood loss, larger nozzles etc etc. But at this time I don't know what efficiency to figure a 5000 hour compressor might have, maybe it is 95%??? I'm still in planning mode and trying determine if this is doable and what going rates for blasting are that I can charge in So. Illinois, SEMO, West Ky region. PM ME IF ANY OF YOU WOULD LIKE TO SHARE YOUR RATES IN YOUR AREA for the different types of blasting you do. I would be forever thankful for the help. Thanks again all.

Re: MMLJ Vs Geoblast


Well I pulled the trigger last month and got a Greener Blast GBT 760 blaster and separately found a Sullair 375H. Been working to go thru them and hope this week to have them painted up in my company colors then mounted on a 14K equipment trailer. Got registered with state so hope by end of August to be going. Be part time between days out on my oilfield job but hope by spring to be able to hire a guy and start training for a steady operation. Wish me well guys thanks for help here.
