Here ya go, Todd.
I have one it works well for some jobs but it doesn't replace the 175.
good Luck....check out the clean storm on the steambrite supply website....its a rebadged sandia and you might save a couple bucks or up your psi.
Ryan, i would go with a portable and use your oreck to agitate before cleaning with your portable. A 175 does scrub the carpet alot better than an oreck. i carry a 13" 175 on my van to pre scrub very nasty carpets. i used to have a 17" 175 it was too heavy to be carrying every job. It did scrub really well but in a residential setting i could see people damaging walls and stuff just carrying it into jobs. so a 13" 175 has been my best investment for scrubbing. does a good job and is a smaller foot print for residential jobs where i need it.
Actually, if you have the proper "portable" (IMHO, a very generic term) , you should be able to clean the large majority of the time without going through so many steps and trouble.
Here is a perfect example from a contractor in the UK:
I'm not there yet. But the goal is not to steam, scrub and agitate dirty carpets back to life. Goal is to go into high end homes and clean clean carpet. Yes clean carpet and upholstery that is already clean.
I see your black and orange oreck brush there Steven, what do you use your orange brush for?
I would say go with one with 500psi adjustable and definitely a pump out os worth ot
