How many heads do I need to get started?

Post by adminemb » Mon Nov 11, 2019 3:48 pm

I've had some techs tell me that the 2 head machines are a waste of money.

I've been told that its better two have 2 single head machines or go ahead and move into a 4 or 6 head.

What are everyone's thoughts on this?

I would say that's pretty accurate. I started with a single head and now I'm ready to move up. I was nervous during the first year bc I didn't make a profit. The second year was better. Be sure to plan for that.

I was advised the exact same thing that getting a 2 head machine is a waste . I can see how since there can be more crap to go out to make you all the way out of the water to having a backup if one is screwing up. Slower but you still have to load the hoop!

I would think that checking for used machines would be fruitful now, with so many businesses closing. Even the vulchers who grab up used machines & soak newbies for used machines are loaded.
