    New Roto 6.6" motors

    What's the deal with these? Cliff's stated motor specs seem a little suspect.

    Pressure drop when I pull the trigger.

    Always rule out the filters first when troubleshooting pressure drops.

    GTfookOH.................such a place exists? A place where restaurants agree to such frequent cleaning schedules?.......A place where Corporate management is serious about carpet and hard surface maintenance?........... A place where employees are actually willing to help to prep the location...

    Cold Client Operators

    Don't overlook all your tools, valves and hoses. Any space that there may be water left, especially between fittings. Open ended q/c's help make draining easier, and extras ones are a must have over the winter, as well as any other brass fittings and couplers you may need. Plug them on and...

    Portable Carpet Extractor With Highest Lift Ratings?

    Now if I can only get you to start scrubbing these jobs with a 175 and red pad before extracting. 200 sq ft at a time......Nuke, scrub, flush with a little emulsifying rinse kicker, and move on. Less dwell time, faster and more effective flush strokes, better results, every time.

    Portable Carpet Extractor With Highest Lift Ratings?

    That is what is making your high production rates possible. No way you'd be banging them out that fast if they called you only when they are trashed and long overdue, like most restaurants do. You one Luky fooker if you are keeping busy with restaurants on such a frequent schedule.

    Portable Carpet Extractor With Highest Lift Ratings?

    True, so many variables. A helper is key when using a porty on big jobs. Helper's first priority is to make sure the machine does not run out of fresh water, and the waste tank does not get too full so you can keep the wand moving. When I am using a helper on big jobs, I utilize one clean...

    Portable Carpet Extractor With Highest Lift Ratings?

    No, no machine has higher lift ratings than the MXE, but a Jag 8.4 should have the same lift using the same motors. Try not to focus on lift alone, but more the balance of lift, sustained lift, and cfm of a system. Vac/flow specs are obviously key factors when choosing a machine, but there are...

    Mytee vs EDIC Galaxy

    Get a Mytee 1005LX and a good higher flow wand and don't look back. Monster performance in a mid-sized unit. Forget any heated unit.

    New portable owner for tile and grout cleaning... need advice

    With only a porty, a 175 machine with an assortment of scrub pads, absorbent bonnets, and brushes will be your best friend. But, it's fooking heavy at 90+lbs. Start with the 35lb oreck and keep your eye out for a good used 175 deal locally.

    Browning and white streaking

    First though was carpet powder. Classic carpet powder symptoms. Vacuum good, absorbent pad it off, change your vacuum filters.

    Mytee 1005lx

    Guaranteed it's from the Unleashed stuff. Worst foam I ever experienced.

    Mytee 1005lx

    Un-Duz-it gave away free gallons of Unleashed when they introduced this product a few years ago. If I am not mistaken, it was absolutely the foamiest product I have ever used at even lower recommended dilutions. Impossible to use in a porty IMHO. Forget you have it. Rinse your wast tank...

    6.6LX motor pulsing

    Rear series motor is to be expected to run hotter. Not sure of the temp parameters though. Don't think only 2 minutes tells much though.

    6.6LX motor pulsing

    Being that it is a new motor, I would recommend running it a little more. I am aware of several users experiencing similar issues with new motors under load. This has resolved itself in a short time with several people that have experienced similar issues with new motors. Seems they have to...

    Jag 8.4 water/foam

    These issues are most often due to poor operation and maintenance, not design flaws as you are suggesting. The only reason you should have to poke around in your waste tank is because you have failed to manage any solids that reach your APO filter. Do you prev ac and are do you have any waste...

    Jag 8.4 water/foam

    I believe there is a bulletin from Ametek recommending using a filter screen on the stack/intake with these motors. If you do not, then you should pull them periodically and clean off the blades of hairs and fibers, which are what will create the problem. Such strong motors can easily suck up...

    Jag 8.4 water/foam

    When he gets a chance, have him show you which way everything goes.:p

    Jag 8.4 water/foam

    LOL...........you'll never make that mistake again......:p

    Jag 8.4 water/foam

    Is the water definitely directly from the exhaust, and not just draining through the cutout?

    Jag 8.4 water/foam

    Is there a diverter elbow on the inside of the intake fitting? Pointing down or did you spin it by mistake?
