I was lucky to borrow Jonnys 13 ZIPPER and was highly impressed with it after I got the hang of it on a 3k sq ft ball room .
can't imagine the spinner does any better but guys do say its better .
Rob Allen.. report about the halo swirl Mark's on which type of rug or if it does leaves Mark's.

I just mean adjust the zipper head to the right height
If your front is popping when pushing forward than it’s off
You’ll need to raise the back slightly

Honestly there is nothing like the ss
There you go, some similarities with Bonzer after all. Bonzer likes to hop on forward stroke as well.

I'm sure if I report back "halo" marks then the report will go out that it's user error. Gotta love liberals.

Well your not getting much help


Please don’t compare the bonzer to the zipper ss

The spinner is amazing commercial tool

I run with my Everest and I love it the production time is amazing the cleaning ability is amazing

The bonzer is not in the same league in any way it falls short

It’s a Ferrari vs well a Camry I guess the Camry will get the job done also though

Build quality is no contest zipper is strong and built like a tank

Bonzer feels fine nothing special

Cleaning ability both do well but in commercial I would never choose the bonzer and it’s smaller cleaning path over the zipper

The bonzer doesn’t work great on edges and corners and under door stops it simply doesn’t with does the zipper

The only real advantage is the price the bonzer is less
Less of a tool
I would NOT consider a Zipper SS to be a ferrari, NO WAY its not Luxurious at all!

If anything Id compare it to a Hummer and a rotovac to a Humvee.

Both are outstanding tools to work with, both can handle commercial but the spinner spins which allows you to get agressive.

But NO WAY is a bonzer a Camry even though ....Have You seen a Camry latey? They are AWESOME, What you talking bout willis!?

You could say

toyota compared to lexus

I imagine rob is saying

These damn wippersnappers and there zipper wands a bunch of punk kids cleaning at high psi
Walking back and forth like a bunch of morons

Back in my day we made that rotary go side to side like a real man
And now these cleaners are all BI they want to clean forward and backward I just don’t know what to think about these cleaners these days

They need Jesus

I used the SS today. Not bad. Mine is used granted. Did leave the carpet pretty wet but seemed clean well. I still prefer Encap on commercial but on a greasy spoon it be a good tool.

Not sure exactly how to adjust this spinner. Seemed like the back glide was a bit high. Anyone know how?

Hay rob need something different to clean with at a buffet we service weekly. Have been eyeing the zipper. Do you think it’s less labor intensive than a wand? This restaurant is killing me I know it’s sounds funny but I swear we get the carpet cleaning flu the next morning we feel like crap . So having a chamber instead of steam blowing back from wand at us it would help.

I cleaned half my showroom floor and it browned out. Was not dry next day. In fairness I believe it was not adjusted correctly. I finally figured out how to adjust it. I'll retry it again on the other half of my showroom floor and see what it does.

PS:We also tried it on area rugs and it seemed to wet the backing. Maybe had the pressure too high. Will practice some more.
