My only complaint is they dont make a larger tm to compete with the 870, if they had there wouldnt be an 870 sitting in my transit
That is a strong statement!

Hard to believe EZ on hard times. If he got a divorce and she took him for everything maybe but everything he has is paid for including several rental properties.
My EZ just runs and runs and runs without problems for the last six years. I have still have not blew a coupler yet. I've had diesel heater problems but I look at that not part of the machine plus it is a different heater than what came with it. Four to five years problem free on my diesel heater. I will call him here in a few days and see what he is doing :). I can almost guarantee you he will call me back if he don't answer. I haven't talked to him in several years either.

Please let me know. I always liked Nick. Like most of us cleaners he was a little crazy but if this is true its sad.

If your looking for a unit that is simple to operate and rock solid I'd say look at a Cleanco. I've had mine for 11 years, only issue was original drive shaft was a defect but was replaced free of charge. Turn on 2 switches and your cleaning carpet with never ending hot water.

I will be in Denver tomorrow for a few days, plan on stopping in at Interlink. All we have where I am is a super small BridgePoint that never seems to have what I am trying to get.

Is Cleanco available in the states?

Update on the additional truck. I found a truck from a fellow tmfer. It is a ford e250 with 60 k miles and a El Diablo. Diesel fired heater. Also met a new friend and veteran carpet cleaner, and a real veteran, navy man. thank you Roger Loghry. Tried it out in my living room today and it gets super hot. Way hotter then my heat exchanger system. It feels good to have a backup truckmount. And I am working on bringing on a part time cleaner.

Congrats on the purchase. Sounds like a great deal. Also congrats on having a back up. It's great to know you have a back up if problems arise or you bring on help.

I'm adding a new truck. I have a offer in on a slightly used neisson 2500 tall roof. Just waiting on the bank to screw around on it. I need the truck to for a few weeks to winter prof it, then wrap it. I'm going to insulate it, then install in floor electric radiant heat.
Next question is what truck mount. Interlink quoted me the sapphire 570 for about 25k plus another 10k for installing and hose reels, hoses, wand. Spinner and fresh water tank.
This is about 10k more than I was wanting to spend.
I do 99 percent residential. No duel wanding. I like very low maintenance and high reliability.
Options?
Thank you
370 SS

I have one and DO NOT Regret

Can do up to 300 feet

Super (VERY)hot, runs strong and super compact
