    Yes I like the vibe but mostly truckmount . Yes on the pad driver but would like a tile brush not the orbot one. Still looking for tile brush options. I use real lifting weights for added weight. Cut them in half& drilled them works great.

    Cleaning carpet above 500psi

    The real way to check pressure is to stand next to the unit and key the wand while watching the gage . The pressure drops when the flo is open but it goes way up when off.
