Welcome to a new episode of “Wash Talk: The Carwash Podcast.” Host Rich DiPaolo welcomes Dave Hoffmann, CEO of Mammoth Holdings, back to the pod. In this episode, we dive into the state of the carwash industry and get some exciting updates from Mammoth Holdings.

As 2023 came to a close, we explored the company’s achievements toward its initial goals.

We explore how the fluctuating economy has influenced wash membership, and whether customer demands or expectations have undergone any significant changes. As we navigate the nuances of the industry, we address the intriguing question of whether sellers were less eager to part with their businesses this year and the contributing factors to any hesitance observed.

Additionally, with an overall slowdown in M&A activity, we uncover Mammoth’s increased focus on greenfield development and receive an exclusive update on de novo plans for the upcoming months. Hoffmann also provides insights into the strategic use of analytics to support “big ideas” in building and buying.

EV safety basics on the shop floor – Part II

OE guidelines and safety procedures as well as the proper PPE and tools will keep you safe when working on an EV.


Staying safe while working on an electric vehicle requires the correct shop equipment as well as the correct personal protective equipment (PPE) and shortcuts are simply not an option. Let’s take a look at everything you are going to need.

We’ll start with PPE and electrical safety gloves. Class zero electrical insulating gloves rated for 1000 volts are required for EV service. Simply put, these gloves prevent high voltage from traveling through your hands, and they must be tested every time you use them by checking for a pinhole or any damage that could allow voltage to pass through a glove. A glove inflator is the most efficient way to do this. Insulating gloves must also be clean and dry so there are no conductive substances that can allow high voltage to travel outside the glove to your arm. Treat these safety gloves with extreme care. They can be damaged easily and they’re sensitive to UV rays, so they should be stored in a dark, dry environment. A ventilated UV-resistant bag is the best option. Safety gloves must also be re-certified every six months. You’ll also wear them with a leather outer glove to protect them, most prefer to wear an inner cotton glove as a liner to allow your hands to breathe.
