Hey everyone, so I do not own a truck mount at the moment. I am using a PEX 500 with a evolution wand. Typically carpet is not our main goal we mostly do a lot of Janitorial but look into getting more into carpet cleaning and hard floor work. My staff constantly complains about the evolution wand that it is really tiring, and that might be because we do not do carpets everyday.

I was wondering what is the best type of wand to use for a portable when doing commercial type of carpet cleaning (we rarely do residential)?

bonzer is hands down the best tool for a TM...IMO

The evolution wand is still one the lightest out there. If they find it tiring they probably won’t like most other wands

even if the bonzer gets the same performance as a wand....
Over time on a long job or long day or 30 year long career....
trust me 2 arms + 2 legs + 1 back
is much easier and less fatigue... than

1 shoulder and 1 arm......

2 jet TMF Ti wand is perfect for portables delivering maximum vacuum, lift and ease of use.

the evo wand is the lightest out there, any other wands are double or triple the weight of evo. If they are tired of using the evo may be get some stronger employees :)
