What was damaged?? That is a good price, new one is around 25,000.

How do you like that unit? I know its allot of machine and maybe more than I need starting out, but I do see it having alot of benfits as well and wont wish that i purchased a bigger unit later on down the road.

The unit itself has no damage, I believe the water softener was damaged but that is being thrown in for free.

It would be worth while to buy it. You should put a deposit on it refundable of course... and take it to a carpet cleaning supplier who works on it. Its a fabulous machine and no its not too big to start with. also checkout ebay in your area. and just a penny pinching idea offer them 10 g's after all they probably got it for 2 grand on a repo. the finance company always writes them off as a loss and auctions it to the repo man for the charges to collect and store the unit. then goes after the financee for the balance owed minus what it was actioned for. I hope you get a good deal on it. and I hope its well worth the moola

We have a 2006 ThermalWave II, and we have ironed out the kinks that the engineers couldn't do originally. Jim Martin has made the same modifications to his machine, and hasn't had a problem either. Our machine has just under 3000 hours and going strong.

I am curious what modifications you guys made...I have one, the computer has been replaced already, it overheats if you don't keep the spray running, the idle switch broke and I believe that is it...

I really like it even though it has a few issues.

I have a 2007 Thermal Wave II Vortec dual wand setup with only 1114 hrs. My problem is the machine automatically shuts off within 30 minutes, my temp gauge reads zero (needle far left), water spray barely warm, the Heat Exchange TWII gets ready hot. I'm I looking at bleeding the Heat Exchange TWII? Replacing the thermostats? Any assistance is greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.

Respectfully,
Joe

Sorry for the delay Mr. Martin. I wait about 3 seconds and that's also due to the fuel pump to pump fuel. I was email'd by Jon-Don where I purchased my machine to bleed the heat exchanger.

with 14-15k, I'd invest in a brand new Amtex. I think their inferno eruption is around that price. I love the simplicity of it. it would be much easier to work on than that Blueline you're looking at. If you buy that thing used, you're buying problems with no warranty. Amtex has an awesome warranty and the suction is crazy. Go with the Amtex if you have $14k. You probably just need $11K for the inferno25, unless you need it bigger for 2 wands. If you don't need 2 wands, then the 25 will give you more than what you need. Brand new is always better than used. You've got someone to call and supply free parts for a year after you buy it
