I tried it once with one of bonnet pros chems and wasn't impressed..can't remember the name right now...although I do love rocket revite it for hwe I've never tried it for vlm yet.....I do credit my lack of good results with using the orick not the chem itselfDoes anyone else get great results with this ?
Adding the on board sprayer makes it worth it especially in the tight areas. Stairs is where I mostly use ours . Bonnet cleaning or prespray before HWE.The Oreck is very capable of bonneting, just not with Oreck bonnets lol (although they are good for area rugs). A good cotton bonnet like Ironman bonnets makes a big difference.
Off the shelf it's on the light side, with some weight on it does much better. I added a 4 gallon tank (only fill up to 2½ gallons), pump and sprayer tip on the front of mine, in residential it's really great. With continuous cleaning and no need to stop and spray ahead with a pump up it offsets some of the production of larger diameter machines.
We use the same setup for scrubbing carpet with a blue or green brush or green or red pads. Putting the prespray in the tank and spraying it as you scrub saves time combining 2 steps and wouldn't want to clean without one.
This post will get torn apart by many here like normal, but IDGAF because I know what it does for me. At just 43 lbs dry you never hesitate to bring it in and in areas navigating around furniture it's very productive.
