    Best Portable Options W/Heat

    How much money you wanna spend and then we can tell you the best bang for the buck.

You can get started at around $500 bucks or less if needed.

    I hate f*#!%#g with portables.

    My TM machine was strong and much heat but seemed to require much maintenance. Some hose burst once a month. Oil change was a pain. It went thru a lot of belts and couplers, The dema valve would get stuck and clog, The over flow shut off valve would not ever work right. Small stuff but all the...

    Mytee Escape or PE500 ?

    What are you using for heat on the Nautilus? Also if you add a booster to that machine it will be as strong or stronger as a entry level TM .

    Protecting floors when using portable carpet extractor

    Longer hose. Leave machine outside while cleaning. 50 to 75 ft hose will cover most homes. Todays 2 motor portable systems have the power for that long of hose reach. A 2" hose will give u better suction.

    Sandia sniper on generator

    He is only running two 110v power cords. So the 4000 generator would be the smallest he should run. To be safe he could step it up to the 6,000 watt, that would give him more than enough for his system. The 10,000 and 15,000 generators are for an Electric Truck Mount system with electric heaters.

    How would you explain different methods?

    Steam cleaning can suck out the deep down dirt. VLM Foam / dry cleaning uses a chemical to dissolve the dirt.

    Hot Water Extraction Using Portables

    That PEX 500 cost too much get the sniper 80-500H. Its the basically the same machine but less money. The machine get hot enough for carpet jobs. Add the $1600 7303LX booster to it for truck mount power.
