Again He is asking if its worth to spend money, money that obviously he has to budget.
Is a crb a great too? yeah, does it make a difference? yeah, is it the end of the world or he only and absolutely a must? NO, must you use a crb all of the time? No, can a good grooming brush be used all of the time? Yes, will the brush be the only solution? No, You get the point, CRB's are great but ive run into issue where there was no power and no way for me to use a crb, did the job come out awesome? Yeah! could it have been better if crb was used? Who knows, Ive met tons of guys who feel crbs are too expensive and yeah even at $900, its still a lot of money,
Kuddos to you for having money, but not everyone is at your or perhaps at my financial level.
$900. bucks for folks who do little business or are beginning is a lot of money, Plus what are you talking about
the Host crb is NOT a light tool either. its also bulky especially with the trolley.
Youll hate yourself for spending money on a machine that dont have many trashed carpets,
Now if you ask me if you should have one if all you do is deal with trashed carpets, then that changes my answer.
