    Too many cords.......And NO HEAT!!!! TM's have more brute force to keep those numbers up when running 150 ft of hose, the electric vac motor stat will diminish with 150' of 2 inch hose hooked up. I'm Pretty sure the vac motors and pump would have to be replaced way before a TM blower and CAT...

    The Recoil is NOT 300 cfm, Come on.. The Prochem Legend GT is only 330 cfm and it will eat the Recoils lunch day in and day out. No questions asked. Even the Little Blazer GT only has 270 CFM and it will destroy ANY portable@ 150 Feet.

    Oxi Fresh every where!

    I think it is a HOST machine with dry organic granules just like 1800 dry carpet.

    New Jaguar Machine

    I read it on a different board. The JAGUAR 6.6 is Fast; Real Fast! And, you can clean at 100',....and beyond (150') even without our exclusive Power Booster System capable of cleaning even further with ease! The internal design is so well balanced for weight distribution and the components...

    New Jaguar Machine

    If That new JAGUAR 6.6 is all that they say it is then it will be a big win for Cross-American. 300 cfm and 250'' of lift with ONLY 2 CORDS. WOW That should be equal to a 36 blower. That should make a nice back up for a TM. looking forward to some video's... I wonder how this would...

    Cleaning carpets with a 175. What is the best way?

    Nice video but I would be concerned with the swirl marks that were left in the carpet. I guess maybe it is not a big deal to some people.

    What do you guys think about a Koblenz...

    Timothy, When a customer calls me to come clean their carpet they expect me to show up with professional carpet cleaning equipment not something that looks like they can rent from the grocery store, thats all. Sorry if I offended you.

    What do you guys think about a Koblenz...

    Get a professional carpet cleaning machine like a whittaker or brush and clean. I personally would never bring that koblenz into a customers house, That machine will make you look like an amateur.

    Forget the Eldiablo! Here's a more capable dual wand TM!

    Prochem is not on the way down, LOL I bet they sell more truck mounts in one week then TCS sells all year. The newer Prochems are all very easy to work on and have been stripped of most if not all of the complicated parts. Plus they hold their value better then any TM in the industry.
