if I was doing a lot of commercial I would get a Zipper or Bonzer. Probably Zipper because it has a Tall Boy handle

right now Bonzer is 300 buck off tho so 1195 you can get it for the price of a regular wand

Lol wait, bonzer needs a truck mount ?

Well- when i was looking at some equipment at Rotovac- i inquired about that Bonzer- they said they were kind-of meant as truckmount equipment- not portable equipment-

I dont know much about it- or if theres other models- but they really steered me towards the rotovac360i to use with the portable cfx

Id love to hear more on this aspect as well.:)

I talked with a mgr from the mgr of Bonzer they told me it can run it just fine. That they recommend auto fill auto dump because of how much water you will use unless your only working on a small area. I bought mine from TMF and i told them it will be for a portable and told me it would work. Maybe someone here can give their input who have actually tried it.

Yeah, if you have auto fill and auto dump and have a decent portable it's fine, you could use any wand.

You'll burn through water with a rotovac 360i as well.

I use my bonzer on a TM and portable
they conme with total of 7 - .01 jets=.07 flow
It will be fine on a dual 3-stage portable or ZX motsrs
not 2 stage though

For a TM I change the jets to .02s
great extractor tool.....saves back labor big time....

What's the deal with bolted down benches and chairs? If you're doing places like that regularly you might need a swiveled wand. Having a swivel definitely helps with getting in and around tight or very low spaces.
