Hi all, looking for good big extractor to use it for commercial cleaning of carpets/carpeting and upholstery furniture in flats, offices, restaurants.
I see that there are pretty many on the market such as Edic, Mytee, Ninja and many more. My budget is not more then 3500 but buying a used one is also possible. Please advice me which is is the best overall in my case? Thanks a lot

Probably their modular one. Airhog and waterhog. It'll be lighter carrying or lifting with it being in 2 parts. For apartments. 1200 psi will help you clean tile. Its vacs can handle long hose runs. So park it near sink in the restraunt and go. No need to drag it around fill it or empty it.

Correction update: The Cross-American JAGUAR MX-2 ETM has always been available in 240v and always will be regardless of what anyone has heard or of any "rumors". Specific confidential circumstances will not honorably be shared within this or any public forum.

And, btw, we do not blame JRH for his comments based on what he has heard because he really is an innocent bystander as anyone else would be.

We receive great testimonials every week from our loyal customers using our 240v workhorse systems! Not a problem.

Thanks to everyone;

Right now I am searching for a shell to build or just buy the mytee flood hog and put 2 parallel pumps in it. In an afternoon I can 86 the heavy, overkill stock apo in the flood hog, add Bob's apo, slam 2 aquatec pumps in it and have a premium mobile setup. Most likely that is what I will do, it comes with easy load wheels too.

The Flood Hog is a Flood extractor with a 66 gpm pumpout. What you are suggesting is not a bad idea. Put a smaller pump out and create a high flow 220 psi extractor. Maybe will build one.

Hi Jim, can you pls update us on the success of this project? Does the Flood Hog body have enough room to accommodate the 2 parallel Aquatec pumps?

Im asking because the Pumptec pump that I have in my LTD6 broke. Probably, I loaded with overheated tap water that damaged the seals. It just jammed and when I touched the head and the motor, its too hot.

Im debating whether:
1. To rebuild the pumptec pump
2. Replace the pumptec with aquatec which could handle high tap water temp better
3. Rebuild the pumptec pump and sell the LTD6 and get the Flood hog with the parallel aquatec pump to save space and lighter weight. But if I go with this route, I will now need to buy an external heater to boost tap water temp. Or do you think external heater is not really necessary?
Thanks in advance for sharing your thoughts.

Hi John, did you proceed with this experiment? What is the result? Thanks.

Yes, they fit just fine. I have it 98% finished, but have not had time for sea trials. With the beautiful weather and work slower than normal I've been taking advantage of it and doing major home improvements.

It will run on two 15 amp circuits and the new Bob Savage apo draws less than an amp. I will finish it up on a rain day soon.

Did you do the duel pump set up?
I seen John talking about building one.

Yes, after running them for 2 years, here's what I have learned. If you take advantage of the high flow capability, you don't need high pressure or high heat and hot tap water is absolutely fine. Same BTU's delivered to the floor at 1.75 gpm @ 130° as 1 gpm @ 210°. Better cleaning, faster with less wanding.

Weight 18 lbs
Amps 1.5
170° tolerant

You couldn't give me a brand spanking new 5 amp, 35 pound (plus hardware), 140° tolerant, fussy, high pressure pump for a true portable anymore.
