Hello everyone, first post here,
I'm in the process of opening an actual shop, i've been a mobile mechanic for 10 years. I specialize in hybrid and electric vehicles. I've been searching prices on fluid exchanger machines, lifts and other pricey equipment. I've been looking at some really cheap Chinese equipment on ebay, i'm just wondering if anyone here has successfully used any of this equipment. It's tempting but I know the old "you get what you pay for" mantra. They got lifts for $1,600 and ATF fluid exchangers for $335. Might be worth trying the fluid exchanger on some of my own vehicles for that price. I appreciate any input, thank you!
Well it has been yet another hectic week at our shop, but still keeping our heads above water! Unfortunately, two of our air hose reels gave way after many years of abuse and no longer retract. I hate for the hoses to be laying around as it is also a safety hazard.
Any recommendations for good quality air hose reels that can with stand the daily use of a busy shop? I've also seen a few lighter weight air hoses, any thoughts?

A little about me:
I own and operate an online lubrication sales and service company .
Im interested in learning more about the inner workings in shops and what you guys need and want in shop tools, lubrication equipment and what ever else you wish someone stocked for you.
I would also like to offer any help to anyone that may have questions about their current lube equipment.
I am based in New England in the high taxed state of CT.
Look forward to chatting with you guys
