With portables the quality definitely matters. Either way, logistically its more of a pain in the ass.

Only a God like @Jim Davisson can use it better than a TM

Setting up and breaking down quickly, along with high performance is key. Building specific equipment that checks all those boxes is everything. Doing the same types of jobs, 10's of thousands of times with the same piece of equipment teaches you a few things.

Last couple of days of TM jobs are killing me... 4 stories high and filthy. Bid this high and landed it. Can't wait to get back to my gravy 25 minute high rise jobs riding elevators.

A complete carpet cleaner should have both, truck mount and a portable just in case those high rise jobs or far away jobs that are not reachable with the truck mount can also be clean and charge well and don’t leave money on the table.
