A petit machine does need volume to justify the cost. (All stainless hose fittings, dual arms, dual pump stands, all stainless frame/bolts etc.) I installed my first one at one of my washes about a year ago and it has over 10,000 washes. There has been no down time or parts replaced!
Petit machines have a 2 year warranty on everything, even hoses etc. It is nice to deal with a family ran business and someone that answers the phone at the factory when you need something.
While I’m the KY distributor, you can still order parts and get support direct which is also a plus. We just finished up our 5th petit install last week. I have yet to see another machine built to the quality of this machine. The petit can easily wash 200+ cars in a day which is a stretch for many others machines.
