50% of what I do is with Wet Abrasive Blasting, I have both a Farrow System 185 and a Geo Blaster 400... both mobile... both make money for me.hi very new on here and would like some hands on help. i'm looking to start wet blasting but can't decide which machine is looks the best I need a fully mobile unit fully self contained water compressor etc. been looking at the farrow the quill falcon esl blast green geo-blaster db500 and more head is now full any help would be great :surrender:
The Geo Blaster makes a lot more money for me because it's a lot faster and easier to use than the Farrow, but the Farrow is still good and makes money for me... just not as much.
I've seen the SB Dustless Blaster in use in a boat yard and the machine makes a HUGE WATERY MESS... maybe it was the operator, but I doubt it because in another boat yard there was another company using a SB Dustless Blaster and he was making the HUGE WATERY MESS that the other guy was making... in other words 3 to 4 times the media usage as a Geo Blaster or Farrow which means a lot more heavy wet media and wet paint to deal with at the end of day.
I just did a 26' Regulator Sport Fishing boat and it took me FIVE 50lbs bags of recycled glass to remove many coats of ablative and one good coat of barrier paint... If that was a Dustless Blaster it would have been something like 20 to 25 bags each at 50lbs to remove the same paint... DB Dustless pot is JUNK!
EcoQuipt... I had a friend in the business who had a Farrow and switched to the EcoQuipt... he's now out of the business.
Quill Falcon... Thats in England and haven't seen any states side.
Geo Blast is the only way to go if you want to make money wet blasting.
