Found it



It would probably solve the wood floor problem and OP's

It looks slow and the wheels are very small

You will have to carry it up stairways and I'm sure it weighs over 100 pounds



Bonnet Pro machine probably going to be $3500 - $4500

When it's finally ready



Have you considered Swirly ???

It doesn't have a sprayer

Just shower feed

Hawk should make it with bigger wheels

I have a 13'' 175-300 Hawk with tiny wheels

No sprayer but it just collects dust


Are you using your red bristle driver on vibe

Wouldn't your Vibe with velcro driver be less aggressive and better for wood floors

13'' Hawk is too big and heavy for steps

I use Stepson on stairs to extract and Drill Brush or 10 CRB to scrub

Sometimes I use Oreck for closets and small areas and between furniture

.45 sg ft would probably cause the Business Owner to have heart attack in my work area

or he would call Police to have me removed from his building ... lol



I have 2 multi sprayers

One corded and one cordless

Good Sprayers

I only use them for pespray for furniture cleaning, or for Carpet/Fabric Protector, and sometimes for prespray on area rugs



I love the Worx Sprayer for Carpet Cleaning

They are the BEST for VLM or HWE

And at a reasonable price

Hawk has a wheels down, sprayer in the front, solution tank, looks good. I have been getting complaints useing orbital machines in old plywood sub floor buildings.
