I bought my 15'' Whittaker Trio off ebay for $1995 in December 2017. So I got it at a good price. I only used it 2 times. It does a good job and it is truly low moisture cleaning. It has a fine mist and the carpet is dry in 15-30 minutes. I have the extra stiff blue brushes and standard grey brushes.
I always wondered how good that trio was. I had their old GLS. It was good. Not great, but good.

I cant imagine work without a CRB. I just bought the carpet brush for my Orbot. Just want to test it out and see what it’s all about.

Man the carpet brush for the vibe is $100! I bought one and it looks like a thin plastic with Long Velcro glued to it. Man I’m in the wrong business! I haven’t tested to see how it works yet but sure doesn’t look tough.

If you can let us know how well it works. I was thinking of getting it but unsure. I have used the pads for the Orbot Vibe though and liked them but they are throw aways.

I'm currently fascinated with the new carpet shark machine. I wonder if they're going to come out with a larger one for us guys that do commercial work or maybe make it to where you can bolt to carpet sharks together

I will. Not sure when I’ll test it out. $100 is stupid however. It’s literally like having Velcro glued to a plastic disk. The only thing I could imagine it being beneficial for is commercial, or low pile loop type carpets. Otherwise any saxony forget it.

I have the Orbot carpet brush also but haven't used it yet. It is cheaply made but I think it will do a good job on commercial.
