    Jaguar Cub: Ed Valentine

    Today, I had the pleasure of speaking to Mr. Valentine today and it was a real treat. He spent over an hour of his time explaining to me the details on his Jaguar Cub. I am sure he is a very busy man, but he took his time to talk with me about the carpet cleaning business in general. I ordered...

    Portable Making funny sounds! Help

    I should have not gone cheap and bought a used Portable and went with the Jaguar Cub. I have the Money from my first ten jobs to get the cub, but don't want to lose out on trashing the Ninja since I spent a good $800 on the unit. I might have to take a loss though. Can you give me a good deal...

    Portable Making funny sounds! Help

    I have a Ninja 400 classic, 500 psi with heater. At the end of a job today it started making a wierd noise. Almost sounded like a crunching sound or like a popcorn machine making popcorn. I took it home and made the noise for a minute but let it run for a minute with the vacs and pump on and...

    Matrix all fiber rinse

    Hey guys I just bought some Matrix all fiber rinse. It has excellent reviews and a good price. However, I noticed that it has a prop 65 attachment to it. That a certain chemical in it can cause cancer or birth defects. This is extremely concerning to me and I am considering not using it. I...

    Where to store chemicals?

    Is it a bad idea to store chemicals in hallway closet in the apartment? I don't have a garage. I do have a small patio but gets hot during the day. I work out of my SUV, but also not sure if it is a bad idea to store chemicals in there, where it gets hot. Does chemicals vapor or smell seep...

    Chemicals

    Ok. So the Rinse is the equivalent to a cleaning solution like this one? I got this for free with my Ninja.

    Chemicals

    The rinse is the last step right? After I have extracted?

    Chemicals

    Do you recommend a cleaning solution for my portable? Or just get a pre spray and some spotters?

    Chemicals

    I am on to researching and buying chemicals and this part to me, is confusing. I am just getting all things together to start my training on my carpets and family's. There are an overwhelming amount of chemicals out there. Would you guys consider Pre spray the most important chemical? It seems...

    Cub vs Mytee

    Thank you. The deal didn't go through. The guy had mentioned he was selling it for a friend who was retiring. When someone tells me that, it's game over.

    Just got in touch with a guy selling a Prochem legend truckmount 2k hours complete with everything on a small trailer for $5k. Would you guys sell the Ninja and get the truckmount?

    Cub vs Mytee

    That is a great idea about the power converter. There is one for sale at Harbor Freight for $130 with excellent reviews. It has 4000 watts start up with 2000 continuous watts. I could plug one into the power converter and one into the customers outlet. Thanks you are the man.

    Cub vs Mytee

    I was told to buy a machine without heat due to using too much energy and tripping circuits. That you would want more suction power. I have a bucket heater I used to use for my auto detailing carpet extractor that would be boiling hot. I figured I could use that for my portable. Looks like I...

    Thanks for the advice. Can you explain to me what you mean by GPM? I am in the crawling stage of carpet cleaning. Thanks

    Cub vs Mytee

    What would it be based on the picture? 2 or 3 stage? It came with a 25 ft hose, would you recommend getting a 25 ft or 50 ft hose for going upstairs?

    Cub vs Mytee

    Update: I found a used very nice Ninja 400 model #411-225hmo with a wand and hoses for 1,000$ . It has heat as well, which didn't matter to me, but I suppose it would be nice to have along with my bucket heater. My question is the people who sold it to me, say it is 500 psi, which I did see...

    Cub vs Mytee

    I am going to go with the Cub but need assistance on what else I need to buy besides a wand and upholstery tool. Where does anyone recommend getting the hoses? Can I buy any brand and it will work with the Jaguar Cub? Do I need fittings? Filters?
