    portable for upholstery

    If it's 30-40 ft of hose for upholstery is dual 2 stage even necessary? IMHO no. We ran a Jaguar cub for years and loved the power/weight ratio and single plug. Maybe the bigger decision is auto fill/dump or not. Running a continuous flow upholstery tool will eat through a lot of water and have...

    Tips for getting into area rugs top down style.

    Rinses for natural fibers are acid-side rinses. And as Darthmaeglin said make sure it's not "art silk"/viscose/rayon. These are finding their way into many houses around here through the decorators who don't know any better. 1 out of 10 have extreme non-reversible browning issues. We still...

    Tips for getting into area rugs top down style.

    Keep to chems safe for natural fibers and, as always, when in doubt do a test spot. We occasionally run into one. Last year had a 20x30 on some mega yacht.

    Light weight portable

    Jaguar cub has a great power to weight ratio. We bought one six years ago for that exact reason.

    Cross-Americans Worth Restoring?

    Our Jaguar cub served us well for the last 5 years. We've operated with a portable only for a long time and the cub's narrow track + proportions made it unstable at times but it's power to weight ratio was hard to argue with. So easy to lift out of the van. I think we went through one vac motor...

    What equipment have you bought that was a waste or rarely use?

    After moving to worx sprayers on our carpet cleaning and power washing having to use a pump up sprayer for a day was really shocking. If anyone wants to get rid of a square scrub I'm sure we could give it a good home over here for refinishing decking!

    Wait, what were people using a square scrub for? Agitation?

    CRB vs 175

    Thought of using a 175. I'll just have to order some stiffer bristles. I was always worried about keeping with the grain. I guess I just need to read up on "clocking" the buffer

    CRB vs 175

    What I'd REALLY like to know is what a CRB could do on wood decking. I bought a used cimex last year with the same question.

    CRB vs 175

    Yeater: long time forum member and one of the testers for supplies/equipment for magic wand company. I like the size and weight of the oreck for VLM of smaller areas and stairs or just agitation for HWE. I get the upside of a CRB but the price is pretty steep. I'd rather put the $$ toward one...

    CRB vs 175

    Speaking of VLM, I just watched Yeater's new vid on the Mytee Eco14. A nice tool for sure but we are already stocked with an oreck, 175 and a cimex. Hmmmm

    CRB vs 175

    Got it! Our tech was impressed with the stuff. This time of year we are heavy on upholstery and pet stains and he's making CLO2 into one of his go to treatments. Most of our clients have wool blend area rugs so chemistry is critical. I'd like to run some tests on the stabilized CLO2 vs the...

    Worx Hydroshot

    The older model had speed/psi selector (low/high). I noticed the newer one I just picked up doesn't have it.

    WORX sprayer mods

    Anyone else notice Worx is selling off a bunch of refurb hydroshots on eBay?. Wish I'd waited to buy my second unit. $58.77!! http://rover.ebay.com/rover/1/711-53200-19255-0/1?icep_ff3=2&toolid=10001&campid=5337618551&icep_item=392304366062

    CRB vs 175

    Good thing I ordered a gallon in the hottest month! I’m sure the carrier will take special care of it. /-:
