I don't recall anyone saying they were using a TM35 lately but we have a lot of guys that use the larger Easy Lawn units. 

Jet machines in general are pretty reliable.  There aren't a lot of moving parts and not much to break down or cause problems.   I would assume that the TM35 is much like our jet units in that other than losing a nozzle once in a while and some wear on the hose since you are dragging it across dirt, roads, rocks etc there is not much to ever go wrong.  Hoses will usually last about 3-5 years. Unless someone runs a pump dry for a period of time or lets their pump freeze usually you can go almost forever without touching the pump.

Hey Chris,
I have a TM 60.  I have had it for four years.  I just did replace some seals in the pump (normal for amount of hours I have on it).  That is the only maintenance I have had so far.  Turboguy is right, I will probably replace my hose this summer.  My machine has been very reliable.  I sometimes have to get down in the tank and unplug one of the jet holes when my slurry is thick.  Other than that I like the machine.

Chris,
I have to climb down in the hole.  Usually the first hole clogs up.  This only happens when I mix more than one bag of 70/30 (wood/paper).  My six year old is almost old enough to send him down there to unclog the hole.  I think that he will think that this is cool.

You can get a stick or 1x1 about 4ft. long and put a 4/1/2 " screw or nail and poke those holes with out getting in the tank. we have done it that many times.

Here is something else you can do to help clean out your tank.

No way,  I wait until it is empty.  Usually the other two holes are working so it mixes ok.

I have always been at a loss to understand the addition of the hose and valve at the end of the agitation tube.  It seems to make sense the the guys with an EasyLawn and everyone seems to agree that it is a wonderful suggestion so I have pretty much given up trying to understand it.  I guess by nature I like to understand things so I will take one more stab at this while we have such a helpful group of guys who can enlighten me.

May I ask a dumb question Warren,  You mention that it lets you put your waste where you want it to go.   My dumb question is, Why is it better to do it that way than to use your discharge hose to do that?

What we use this for is a cleanout. After every job there always is material left over in piping, so we use this to ensure our jets are clean, pump is clean and that no material is left in the system that can dry and make problems like clogs.

Its a very intelligent and easy solution to the system. Good to see others have applied it to their equipment.
