175 is fine in places like Florida with so many 1 level homes.. who wants to lug one up to a 3rd floor? It scrubs hard but when do you even need that much scrub unless it's a total shit pit in which case a rotary extract with brush head will do it with good chemsMost overrated tool that this industry has ever produced.
Need agitation?.... Get a vegetable brush fer yer 175
need to remove pet hair?.... Get a professional vacuum.
Any Interlink dealer.Who sells them and where can I order one from sir
Thing about a CRB is you can scrub rooms quick, move right into scrubbing stairs. I carry it inside in 1 hand with a wand in the other hand.If you find a crb digs deeper, yer not using a vegetable brush.
I really don't use it much on carpet now at all since I've got brushes in the Trex but I was comparing the 175 to CRB....
175 with vegetable brush is a beast.
Ive owned a 15" CRB and now have 2 Cimex's.
A CRB is a joke compared to a proper VLM machine like a Cimex for doing Encap.
Even a shower fed 175 sh:ts on a CRB for doing Encap.
Hey since you tend to hate crbs,I don't use 175 to scrub carpet since they put brushes on Trex.
my process is simpler nowadays.
Only two machines I bring in to clean are vacuum and Trex.
wand is just for edging
Just comparing CRB scrubbing ability to a 175/vegetable brush.
I'm open to any ideas that speed up the process but I won't clean again with just the wand and I can't have a tool on my van that takes up space without making money.
After I tested the CRB thoroughly,....I sold it.
Do you ever zipper in residential?
Wait there are some carpets you don't thrown down prespray?Do you ever zipper in residential?
Seems like it would be a pain. I know I said you use t rex every job but what about the monster super clean homes?
We do a lot in the 5k-10k sqft range, very clean high quality carpet. I can't imagine running a rotary on the entire job would take forever, usually the entire upstairs doesn't need pre spray just a few main floor rooms
