Can Counter Rotating Brush machines be used as a stand alone for encapping or are they better for prevacuuming/pile lifting before encapping or pad capping with an OP/Cimex/175?

What's the best CRB machine? I see models with 2 and 3 brushes.

Friggin love my brush pro.

I made 1200.00 with it on one job as a stand alone encap machine the week I bought it.

It's prescrub and deep hair and grime pulling capabilities on cut pile is off the charts!

I saw a video on Interlinks facebook page of a Brush Pro hooked up to his TM. I think that is where it's at. It was a TV show on PBS on a Green Carpet Cleaning Company. I would like to learn more.

What?

How would it be "hooked up" to a TM?

Yea, I saw your post "Im in love."

Now Im digging through threads looking for the best information about what CRB to get and what not to get. They are DANG expensive for such a simple machine.

And Vito, Id like to see some pictures of your nasty pick ups if you could post some after another job or something.

Several CRB machines do look similar. Several are made by the same manufacturer. But that does not mean they are the same inside. Each company has specs of how they want their model made. "How powerful is the motor?", for example. What about the drive systems and gears? How durable? What size? Is it sealed internally allowing it to be operated in standing water?

There are differences. Don't be mislead and buy on price alone.

scott i took it apart and it is the same as the brush pro just a differnt size and the price is the same. it is not a dime cheaper. i can't talk about the other out there but the strong is the same as the brush pro except the size. i bleived the bp is 17 & 20 and the strong is 15&20" the motor are water tight and it has the big motor and it seal. if there is a different i can't find it.
