Looking at the Bonzer and the zipper what are the main difference The zipper looks better built but 600 dollars more

How much of a difference is the dry time from a rotovac 360i vs a bonzer.

I heard people are getting 30 minutes to a hour with the zipper and Bonzer . I don't know how tru that is

You can do that with a rotary plus have some additional adgition

I can believe it but if you are cleaning with a 360i and using air movers dry times should be quick either way

Different tools for different situations. I have owned rotos and zippers and trex and kept 2 to use in various conditions

Seriously though... The zipper is far better built and is a high quality tool. As cleaners we spend our hard earned money to buy quality tools. I don't know how long a Bonzer will last or when it will need repairs... I do know that the zipper has been very reliable for guys and has been around a lot longer.

I have owned the zipper 13" for full 3 years now...one of the first to get one.....
I recently bought a bonzer and will use it on a theater this week...
cleaned with the bonzer last night at my house......
also side to side with the zipper......
So far I like the bonzer...50% lighter, 20lbs combpare to 30 lbs.
also 50% easier to push ...at least in homes around furniture....
Checked the carpet and it seemed to be somewhat dryer than when I used the zipper before??????
more tests are needed!!!!!!!
I will give a full comparison it in a few days....especially on commercial....
But so far it is what I have expected in that it is easier to manuver 30-50% less labor in homes....
Remeber the zipper is mainly for comercial???? Hard to manuever in homes.....
