which machine is right for me?

 

So you're thinking of starting a mobile paint stripping and cleaning business. Congratulations!

Our turn-key business packages are one of the best ways to start working for yourself. With so many choices, you might be wondering which Dustless Blasting machine is right for you. Keep reading to find out.

Which Dustless Blasting machine is right for me?

All of our mobile trailers are capable of the same process, but choosing the right one will maximize your time and profit. The main differences are in:

1. Compressor air volume (CFM)

The output of an air compressor is measured in CFM (cubic feet of air per minute). Greater air volume allows you to use a larger blast hose and nozzle, which in turn gives you a larger blast pattern. This allows you to cover more surface area at once, and complete jobs faster.

2. Continuous blast time

The size of the blast pot also impacts your productivity. With a larger pot, you will have to stop and refill less often, saving time.

The DB500 Mobile XL features a larger trailer with two spacious toolboxes and extra deck space — enough to store a full pallet of media. The low profile deck allows for easy access to all controls. 

Fully loaded at ~9,100 lb, the DB500 Mobile XL generally requires a 1-ton truck to tow it.

Air compressor 300 CFM Render-db800-mobile-xl
Continuous blast time 90 minutes

Best suited for Commercial & Light Industrial

The DB800 Mobile XL's 300 CFM compressor offers more air volume than smaller models, allowing you to achieve a larger blast pattern and blast more productively. 

This air volume also comes in handy if you need to extend your blast hose. Imagine blasting a backyard pool while the trailer remains parked on the street, or blasting a stairwell that is 4 stories up. This larger compressor can support the air volume that is needed when using a longer blast hose.

Like the DB500 Mobile XL, this model also includes a low deck, spacious toolboxes and enough deck space to store a full pallet of media. 

The DB800 Mobile XL is well suited for commercial and light industrial projects, including paint removal at large commercial properties, heavy equipment cleaning, and marine maintenance on large boats.
