What do you think?
A nice-to-have to prevent squeaking and rust.
This couldn’t be further from the truth.
Lubrication is as important to mechanical engineering design as screws, welding, bearings, gears, clutches, brakes, couplings, flywheels, shafts and axles.
In my university Mechanical Engineering Design textbook, lubrication has its own chapter – taking up 6% of the 958-page Seventh Edition. It comes after rolling-contact bearings and before gears.
How big do you think the lubrication industry is?
It’s huge. The global market for lubricants was more than $55 billion USD in 2015. And it’s growing…
…With this amount of consumer spending, massive lubricant and grease company marketing spending follows. The marketing competition is fierce and gives you mixed messages, is confusing and creates too many choices of lubricating grease.
Let’s dive right in to find out.
We have already released the best pressure washer services in the 5 most populated areas of the 35 highest population states.
And we have heard from many people (from Florida to Texas to Oregon) that those recommendations have helped get quality pressure washing jobs completed without fuss or hassle.
So after many many MANY hours of research we are ready to give you a bunch more recommendations for pressure washing companies.
You know: time is money.
In. A. Single. Day.
Then you need to invest in a big rig that can quickly clean large surface areas. You need a powerful pump capable of up to 8 GPM. You need hot water, longer hoses, water tank, spare fuel… And you need it all to go from one job to the next day-in-day-out (without fuss).
You need mobile pressure washing equipment. You need the best pressure washer trailer setup to do more power washing in less time – earning you more money per day.
Sound about right?
Pressure washing your car engine can be safe, for sure, but should you even bother?
The pressure the pump can deliver is important only to knocking dirt and grime loose from the surface. PSI doesn’t tell us anything about its ability to carry the debris away from surface before it sticks again. For that, we need to look at the flow rate in gallons per minute (GPM).
More experienced power washer users will know about cleaning units (CUs), which is GPM x PSI. A 2,000 PSI machine with 2 GPM has 4,000 CUs. Combining PSI and GPM into one number gives a better idea of total cleaning power/ability.
Are they in city skyscrapers or a sprawling corporate campus outside of town?
Are the executives swimming in rooftop pools? Is there a chef, free laundry service and barber like all the Silicon Valley companies have?
Or, are they ordinary, focused on shareholder value with minimal perks and just floors-and-floors of cubicles and corner offices?
Let’s use Google Earth and take a look what can be seen. Here are 22 birds-eye view pics of the global headquarters of USA favorite tool, equipment and construction machinery companies like Caterpillar, John Deere and Snap-on.
PressureWashr.com spent 56 hours investigating the global hand & power tool industry.
The goal was to find the tool companies who make and who own most of the tool brands you know and love.
All the research is boiled down into two useful infographics:
Below each graphic is an in-depth look how the data was found (tax forms, annual reports etc.) and any assumptions made. Enjoy.
With United States as the region and 2016 as the timeframe, each tool and equipment brand was input to Google Trends to find the state it was most searched relative to total searches.
Your state’s favorite tool/equipment brand is not the most searched in total, but the most searched relative to your state’s total searches compared to all other states.
For example, Google Trends data for Bernie Sanders in 2016 shows he’s most popular in Vermont. This makes sense because it’s his home state.
