You're very brave man. I like to move fast, 9K sqf open floor buffet took two of us 3.5 hours, I did it in 7..5 hours on my own. Furniture store is going to be a nightmare, layers upon layers of soil, you better sure your chemistry is right. Obviously this is not your first dance...
Good luck anyways and let us know how it went. There is always room for improvement .

Furniture store nightmare turned out to be like Hunter Biden’s laptop. I predicted 6-8 hrs • • turned out 23.5 hrs with two of us. 350’ of vac / sol. hoses snaking through tight, narrow passages describes everything you can imagine a carpet cleaner dreads.

There were no entry mats. The CGD ( commercial glue down ), were packed, packed w dirt and soil. To make matters worse, rugs were GLUED to the CGD interrupting the “flow” everywhere • • never mind the furniture and Knick-knacks. The store was open for business and it was packed this weekend. Customers weaving and bobbing through piles of hoses stretched all around the floor. I praise God no one slipped and ? ?

• • • wanna know how much I made per / hr. ?

I haven't heard much good about the rotary dri master, have you ever tried the Zipper?

I’ve used mainly the RX-20 for years ( never ever ever used a wand • • they SUCK baaahhh humbug ), anyway, I’d pull out the RDM for GD’s and super clean anal people kind of stuff. Then all three RX-20’s went down.
Pulled out the RDM & never looked back • • that’s been about 6 years w only using RDM’s. I’ve rebuilt a few from the parts machines ( gotta have spares for everything ).

I can do a commercial building area in about the same time as a wand w 80% less water. They hold up great accept the bottom plate is the Aquilese heel. My machine’s heat melts the aluminum diverter. The reason it lasts as long as it has is because I run about 250 psi
( unless I’m doing a manageable shag ). I definitely have to have a couple manufactured • • burned through two already.

Zippers and CX-15’s ( I think they’re called ? ). I’d love feedback on comparability between the three or four :

RDM / CX-15 / Zipper / wand

Probably won’t find many who use all three as regulars.
Id like to hear about speed, dry times, and man, just as important • • maneuverability. I can do things w my RDM no wand can In tight spaces. Wish they were back in production ! !

I've tried the CX-15 wasn't impressed, plus it only cleans pulling backwards.

We just bought the Zipper SS so I'm currently evaluating it.

We use the Trex for both commercial and residential to great success. We are hoping the Zipper is faster with same quality for CGD

I think the Rex weighs in at close to 78 lbs.?
The RX-20 are just 10 lbs. lighter • • both pigs. How well does the Rex recover ?

I have the new Apex 570 from Sapphire.

So far we really like the Zipper, cleans well and amazingly fast (it's the spinner version), we've only had the T-Rex snag a CGD once time, and the carpet was already damaged so I can't really blame the T-Rex.

I didn’t know the Zipper came any other way ( a non spinner CX-15 ) ?

I have 2 Mytee T Rex rotary and love them. I got tired of the weight as well so I went ab nd purchased the T Rex Jr. The thing is a breeze to carry around.
