Once again Wil is running me around for an early morning shift because the Repo Ninja hydraulic system is in need of some repairs. The sound has been obvious in the last few videos uploads of the strain on the cylinders when unfolding and folding the arm. These Dynamic self loaders are not cheap to work on and all the parts have to be ordered from back east. Next episode should be showing the repairs being done.
A nice excuse to have fun with the quad copter is to get your practice in.
My dad is a RC copter and Plane junkie. He flies them big and small.
He brought the new quad copter over. I ended up dropped it into my neighbors yard, I had just moved in the night before. Wasn't fun introducing myself while trying to explain why essentially a camera with spinning blades was in their yard. They can be tricky, especially since you have no trees around to warn you of sudden winds out there. Or understanding debtors who will give it back to you.
Noticed that you switched to a low profile Ford superduty crewcab. Us truck guys and former wrecker drivers would like a video on your rig and gear. Now that you aren't running the single cab wrecker. What are your thoughts on waste vegetable oil?
That first repo in the garage is so illegal here in texas, and opening a gate on private property, yall dont care about the rules at all. I like your vids just not how you get repos done. You will NEVER catch me doing shit that way.
What's up. Great videos. SUBBED A While now. But have never comeneted before.
Keeping it Real. Best dam YouTube videoes out there..
And Just got to say it. Five Finger Death Punch FN ROCK... just de sided to check them out. After hearing it in you try Truck.
Best regards to you and Stay Safe. We need you.. Sorry about the bad grammar. I am Norsman.And using a cursed 'smartphone'...
"sissy yellow aveo" lol
The 4 door looks similar to my 2007 Kia Rio which I had for 4 1/2 yrs. Never had any problems with it and it got 36 MPG.
I traded it for a new Prius C which gets closer to 50 MPG.
$350 tire? Didn't know such thing existed for a car. Isn't there insurance for that? I would think that would be job related damage.
I've seen some comments regarding the language used by Matt in some instances of his videos. First of all, this is "REAL" reality and not that scripted crap you see on Lizard Lick or Operation Repo or any of those other bullshit tv shows. Secondly, it's adult content that, if it had a rating, would probably be rated PG13 on some, G/PG on some and R rated on others. Thirdly, Matt's language is tame compared to what your children are hearing at school or in peer social groups when they are hanging out with friends. And I can only assume that since you have access to youtube then you have access to the internet which is full of bad language no matter where you look. My basic point is get over the language factor or don't and move on. We need more videos on youtube like the ones Matt provides. It's real world stuff no matter the context of the content and your children or you do not live in a tame society nor can you hide reality from children. If your offended, move on. I'm sure there is a disney channel somewhere on youtube but be sure to watch those videos too before you let your kids watch them because the words Damn, Hell and Piss are used frequently on disney too.
+RepoNut I thought of you when I saw this video. Just in case the repo business doesn't work out lol. Thanks for the entertainment on my second screen while I am at work. Boeing B747 Pushback with Towbarless Tractor
Aveos get a bad rap. Used a hatch '05 hatchback Aveo as a company car for courier work, and even with lax (read: no) preventative maintenance, it survived 265,000 hard miles before giving up the ghost. Then they threw a cheap junkyard motor in to it and it ran another 88,000 miles before they deemed a $960 repair bill too much and junked it. It was too bad, too, since it was an LT and "loaded" with power windows, door locks, cruise, air, & automatic.
+RepoNut what's the deal with wills boom. Talk about ol skool buddy lol. If you get that quad copter that could be cool viewing. Hey BTW I have a question might be dumb or stupid but I just wanted to get your opinion since you been in the repo bizz for some time could I contact you via email or Facebook? Thanks buddy and keep up with that videos
there's probably a lot more than it looks like wrong with that BMW but it would still be worth the money to fix it still. and yeah good friends are really hard to come by great friends are damn near impossible , my best friend and i have known each other since we were 13 and we're 45 now and i'm the same way ANYTHING he ever needs if there is any possible way i can do it i would. he jokes and calls me his brother but we've helped each other out in ways even most brothers never would. for an example i paid for his Cell phone for 12 years, never asked him for a penny for it either just because i knew it helped him out.
The FAA is finally giving a little flexibility to commercial use of UAVs. It may be a while before you can legally operate fully autonomous in a densely populated area. there have been a few incidents with idiots running these things that have had a major impact.
Be careful of insurance implications as well. Your business insurance will not cover damage caused by a UAV. My profession is Aviation insurance, and can help you out should you ever need it.
Prayers to Shanda!!
It's just sad that all the problems you have had with this new truck, the truck that was to make you life easier and be more reliable. Its good that you have a good friend with an older tried and tested truck to bail you out. Could you not just go back to using and older tried and tested cheaper set-up as a backup for when the new truck goes off the road.
For the horn beeper, I'd have a swivel light ready, around 500w should do it. Point it right at them. Cockroaches are not fond of being in the light, it will kill their night vision, and expose them to anyone that wishes to have a chat with them for beeping the horn at 5:00am.... Win, Win......
Matt, I've got an idea on the pump failure. Could it be that with the engine rebuild the engine is putting out more torque than before and the pump was already getting weak but finally started going out with the increased torque? Or did you find the cause after the pump was replaced?
+conspi racytheory how did you get 67% of americans don't want to hear swearing?? even if your percentages are accurate with those who have sworn in public and those who wish they could stop, how does that magically give you the 67% who don't want to hear swear words?? you can't sit and tell someone how to live their life.. you can however live your life how you want.. and if you don't want to hear swear words and you don't want your kids to hear them you should be more careful with what you put on for the family to watch.
Perhaps if your concerned about the language u should censor the video before allowing your family to watch this would save you having to explain it to your children cursing isn't always acceptiable.
Cursing is part of everyday life, our children are gonna hear it one way or another the key is to tech them it is not always acceptable to use curse words while in public and there is a time and place for it.
I enjoy seeing Matt be him self with his friends and letting loose a bit as I'm sure we all do occasionally if not regularly with company were comfortable with.
Thank you for another video Matt
John Wilburn: Who exactly is we? No I already knew you understood my points. They are the same points Matts' dad has and many others who have decency have. You have just been trying your hardest to upset me and get me to blow up at you and I won't. I will just continue to send positive thoughts your way and hope someday in the future you will learn respect for other human beings, because it takes little effort, this on the other hand take a lot of effort. Remember as a long time subscriber who was here to just watch another good video from a great repoman, who turns out not to have zero regards for his subs. And who also turns out to have friends of the same caliber, who like to gang up on good subs. Pretty sad.......
+Vic Reece I'd still keep the F550 especially now that all the mods are completed. The lift works 18 hours a day so it's going to need regular maintenance. $1900 after making $60,000 is a fair trade off.
someone still has to pick up the cars just because it is shut off from use does not mean people are just going to turn it in.....especially when they can no longer drive it.....also people like Matt with real skills VS the ability to operate a tow truck will still be in demand to find the cars that people disable the lock out device on, remove the battery and GPS from and otherwise try and hide or part out......houses (with the exception of mobile homes) do not move from place to place and yet there is still a huge industry of people that work for and with banks to get a home back when people default on the note
+Carlo Zap I'll leave that to the next generation to worry about. I'm moving on to teaching this stuff and not doing it anymore. I get to play with all the new tech toys coming out and will be the engineer of the next set of tools to get around all the computers...
How long do you need to power the electronics with the engine off? Would a DC UPS be OK (Much simpler and cheaper than an APU genset)? Perhaps add a deep-cycle battery and your existing invertor would be sufficient? (Or better yet, get DC-DC power supplies for your electronics and run directly off the 2nd battery, much more efficient than battery -> inverter -> Laptop PSU -> laptop battery). If the 2nd battery is too low, don't turn the engine off.
+Bob Smith We run a ton of electronics in the cab and need to keep it all running. I've contemplated a generator that could kick on when the truck shuts off and the computer and other items are still active. I shut this truck down a lot more than I did the F250.
I am retired now, but I was a mechanic for a company where they ran 1300 plus Diesel vehicles every day. We had Cummins, Series 50 and 60 or so Silver 92Detroits and a few Mercedes. The common way to shut a Diesel engine down is to cut the fuel supply. A Diesel uses very little fuel to idle. If an engine is running it is wearing out.
Some Diesel engine tend to build up lots of carbon when they idle, other designs still build carbon, but much less. I drive Cummins and I see no reason to let it idle unless I need to keep the battery charged or run lots of accessories.
Still with a much newer Diesel engine you would think he would get a little better than that. A 460 is just built to eat a crapton of gas but are great starting points for a fun towing rig or racing vehicle.
+Hunter Green I said 18-ton-truck. An 18-wheeler would probably haul a bit more, like 40 tons or so?
Also, I am used to European fuel consumtion, which seems to be way less. Actually, 10mpg is around 24L/100km, and a travel bus for 50 people that weighs about 20 tons will use around 25-30L/100km.
Good upload man, keep up the good work. Hopefully the ninja is in full swing soon! Not too big a fan of the night time videos but it's better than nothing! Any possibilities out there for better night vision cameras?
this was more of the hilarious videos. Matt do you listen to disturbed, device or sevendust?? Device especially only one album but its a combination of people from different bands. Another if you havent already got is spotify. 10 bucks a month and its unlimited EVERYTHING its absolutely amazing!
+TheZwerfer14 No such thing as for the pc only at least i dont think. Only band i could not find on spotify was tool but oh my god they dont even exist as digital music on amazon or google play or anything its all hard copy.
+FishyCanada When I walked up the door was up so I called Wil and he came in from around the corner. I did not have the camera on my head initially so I had to get it out of the truck and then had him back down the street and start over. Not always as perfect as I'd like it to be but it gets the job done.
Hey reponut! Big fan of your videos, and ive seen quite a few of them. Just wanted to say how good this one was too. And Wils truck sounds awesome. I'm not a big fan of fords, but his is pretty sweet, although not the best for being sneaky...

+Bill Riccio According to what I saw the garage was open when the repo was executed and a separate pedestrian door has nothing to do with whether the door was open or not. I actually walked in and out of the garage three times before we even started the repo to verify it was our car so not sure why any of that would matter in post editing.
+RepoNut Considering what John Perkin wrote in the other comment, about liabilities and the software for those drones needing to become more intelligent (avoiding obstacles in the air while keeping the camera focus on one moving location), I think it will be a thing of the future, not so much for now. Especially since it is such a huge investment, it would suck to spend that kind of money and then not getting out of it what you had hoped for!
+Noah Radel we all know the garage wasn't open, their was a regular door to the garage, thats why he closed the garage door, i had to rewind to see why it was open...editing, you gotta do what you gotta do!
Good for you man. Just finished watching the video. Crazy that garage door was open eh?;) lol. Keep up the videos brother. Really go enjoy them. Are you only licensed to reposess in the state of Utah? How does that work?
That drone seems cool, and I think it would work well for what you will be using it for. From what I can tell though, there is no 'actual' way to fly it? I don't like that, the only reason I would buy a drone is to be able to manually fly it. I don't want or have any need for it to be on me. One thing though... how the hell does it know where tree branches and/or buildings are at? The promo vid I saw was all in open places. Edit: I see now that you can make a no fly zone, and it doesn't necessarily have to 'follow' you..
The only thing I would be interested in using this drone for is to follow my car.. it says it can follow up to mph lol. Hopefully you give us a little test of that if you get this one!
I bought a set of the wiper blades. It has been raining here in Chicago. I will tell you they work like magic. I'm going to get a pair for my F 350 before the snow hits. If they work half as good as they in the rain, I will have a lot less headaches trying to keep the snow off my windshield. I would highly recommend these wiper blades to anyone.
+RepoNut Thank you for selling this! You are right about how well they work. My wife drives my chevy 2500 dmax. That is the truck with them. She love how they don't smear the glass. They are a bit more that going to the parts store, But it is worth every penny. They ship fast too.
+tbmproductionsdj1 See I'm telling ya they are not just a wiper blade. They really work well. It's like having someone on the hood of your vehicle during a rain storm with a towel and blow dryer... LOL
Do not trust the dji phantom vision plus. It's a piece of shit and very expensive when it crashes and it will. I've played that game already. Dji is the worst company for technical support also. Go with the Blade.
Hey, thanks for the upload, I know you've been busy. Thanks for making time to produce videos for us. Quick question, on average how many hours per day are you in your truck driving around whether it be checking addresses or performing a repossession?
Most so-called “free online dating sites” or “freedatingsites” aren’t actually free. Normally what the sites offer is a free trial period of say three days, or the opportunity to create a free profile. If you have a profile other members can see it and contact you. Usually this includes the ability to send you messages. Some sites will then allow you to see the content of those messages, others won’t. The one thing you can’t do though is reply. This means that unless the person contacting you sends you a phone number, or email address (some sites automatically remove these) you won’t be able to contact them until you pay for your membership.
