OB- Optical Brightener
OP - Oscillating pad machine

175- any rotating floor machine not exceeding 175 rpm? Pretty much all basic floor machines are that speed
Spinner- tile cleaning tool like sx 15

Vibe- Brand name of an OP machine. Not a lot of rills, but a very nice machine.I used mine this weekend to do almost 13,000 sq. ft.
Bronzer- cleaning tool? From Roto-Vac. Spinning jets for carpet. Similar method to CX-15 and Zipper spinner tools. Less expensive. Likely a video will show up on the page while you read this.
2 stage vac - something related to portable units - The vacuums in portables can be 1, 2 or 3 stage vacuums. Essentially, it refers to how many powered fan blades attached to a vacuum motor. More stages = more suction if everything else was equal (which it never is.) More stages also require more power.
