    Does any one use a more budget range of equipment? The reason I ask is because I know someone who is also trying to start a round, and apparently they bought their equipment from a budget store for penny's. I tried to practice with the same squeegee today and all I can say is OMG! What a usless pile of ****. Thoughts?

    Hi
    I started off with a cheapish squeegee bucket applicator and bits, but started buying ettore gear within a couple of weeks bit by bit as said these tools earn you money you need them to last and feel good in your hand.
    I was talking to a supplier today and he said a guy went in to buy one rubber for his squeegee 2 weeks later he returned and said it did not last long , Yeah i laughed too. buy better tools when you can keep putting money back into your business every week it makes life easier too.

    Unger all the way for me. & to be honest they don't cost the earth. Cheap bucket & clothe yes but decent squeegee rubber & applicator a must.
