If you learn to use Gator Crimps and you will save thousands of dollars over the course of your career.
Each Gator Crimp you move down costs you nothing but 5-10 minutes in the garage and you stand to get another 6 months out of that hose.
Compare that to taking that same hose into a suppliers’ place – they will try to get you to buy new hose. If they say “we can’t repair it due to liability reasons” BS BS BS you say “ok , fine. I’ll fix it when I get home tonight.” Who needs you?!?
It’s the only reason I have installed nothing but these Gator crimps on 100% of the hose I make for you guys – to prove a point – that Gators are all you need to solve your solution hose problems… if you are handy at all.
Look in Sam’s toolbox; nothing special, but everything he needs to take these matters into his own hands.
if you aren’t handy, you only have two choices, practice or get out of the trade, cuz those guys who do their own repairs will have a greater ROI than you will and in the end they will take your clients.
