    TMF wand

    I’m curious about the airflow performance. The Devastator screams, so that’s what I’m comparing it to.

    Lift/CFM & Stuff

    I know this discussion has been endless, but humor me... A 36 blower has about the same lift as a 45 blower. The 45 blower has more CFM obviously. Does the extra CFM maintain the lift on longer hose runs or is lift finite, no matter how much CFM the blower produces? I ask because a larger TM...

    Boxxer 318 upgrade...?

    Is it worth 4k to upgrade from my virtually new Boxxer 318 (18/36) to get the same basic frame but with a 23 HP motor and 45 blower? Is the vacuum and especially heat noticeably better? My average hose runs are 150 feet. Heat is where the 318 is lacking.

    Boxxer 318

    Okay, so I’m about to pull the trigger on a basic residential TM. Virtually all the jobs will be less than 150 feet of hose. I can get a Diamond (private label Boxxer 318) for 12k. For a couple thousand less, I can get a Relia-Bilt with the same blower, a couple more horsepower for 2 heat...

    Does anyone post here anymore?

    Seems sparse. Also, any interest in a 6 month old Orbot Sprayborg with weight kit? Perfect condition - used 35 hours at the absolute most. I’m in the Dayton, Ohio area.

    So... I 'think' I decided to get a Vibe, but...

    How long will I have to wait for one? I filled out the contact form on the ORBOT site a week ago and still haven't heard back. I did message Rob and he said he'll work with me on a purchase, which is great. My concern is I might have to wait several weeks for a Vibe. You know how we all are...

    Connecting to water

    If you exclusively use auto water in on whatever portable you like and you are in a house with all Moen faucets with the laundry water covered by a huge washer/dryer... where do you get water? I ask because I want to buy a portable or maybe even a Steamin Demon for the occasional flush after...

    Minimax Terminator

    I finally, sort of, narrowed down a machine, but then started studying the Minimax... What a well thought out, well-built machine. I like... lower weight crazy stair-climbing wheels the sprayer the super-professional look the simple rotary design means the machine will probably never break...

    Getting rid of Rug Doctor soap

    Anybody using VLM only keep a rinse only extractor around to rinse out soapy carpet? If so, can you point me to a good, lightweight and affordable one? Doubt heat is needed, or maybe it is...
