Every business opportunity requires an initial investment, but the costs can vary based on your own unique circumstances.
With no Franchise fees and no brick and mortar location to pay for, a mobile blasting business is a relatively affordable way to start your own profitable business.
However, before starting any business, it's a good idea to run some numbers so you have a good understanding of your total investment and operating costs.
This article will give you some costs and considerations for planning your business operations.
Dustless Blasting® Equipment
Choosing the right equipment is an important consideration. It affects the size of jobs you can perform, and will probably make up the majority of your investment. When starting a business, most people choose a model between the DB500 Mobile S and DB800 Mobile XL.

Nova 3® Comfort System
During blasting, we require hand, ear, and eye protection. A great way to stay safe (and comfortable!) is the RPB® Nova 3® Comfort System.
Still sound like a daunting price? It all depends on how you think about it.
We understand that $50k is a lot of money, but it's also no more than the price of a nice pickup truck. And unlike a pickup truck, the Dustless Blasting system gives you the ability to earn, on average, $300/hour.
That’s the kind of money-making potential that our business owners are raving about — and allows them to make back the initial investment in no time.
