    How does the surround encap compare to release it?

    Never used releasit I have used alot of Surround Ultra The smell of it hooks my customers. I would compare the cleaning power to Encap green. Price is unbeatable Hard to beat free shipping on a case. I do boost it with Peroxide on occasion to help with really nasty stains

    Mike not to butt in I have an Orbot and a Challenger I think the best bang for your buck would be the lowboy with the wheel kit. Dont get me wrong I love my Orbot. Without the weight kit the Orbot doesnt clean as well. My challenger weighs app. 62lbs and is a dream to use in a residential setting.
