I went with Mytee's 7303LX Air Hog Booster, and Mytee's 7304 Water Hog Pressure Sprayer for my portable set up.

The Air Hog Booster Has more suction then the previous Mytee LTD5, can be used as a stand alone extractor as well as a booster to my Truck Mount. Here's a link to it if you're interested. https://www.mytee.com/products/7303lx-vacuum-booster/

The 7304 Water Hog Pressure Sprayer https://www.mytee.com/products/7304-water-hog/, goes up to 1,200 psi for not only carpet cleaning but tile and grout as well.

Neither one of these weighs more then 50 pounds either so it's a very portable portable.

@Jim Davisson said that this new Mytee combo is close to what my HydraMasterCDS is performance wise. I'm going to find out.

Shits about to get real :)

This is same setup I want to put in my Ford Transit so it can be removed if needed. It will be a backup machine. I use my Transit for other things so don't want to mount a TM in it.
I know it is 3 cords but you should be able to plug in that pump and one vac cord on the booster into the same 15 amp circuit at 500 psi and below. Let us know if that works.

Only other thing I see you might need is a defoamer injector on the booster. Let us know

I'm with you on the defoamer. With the smaller waste tank I was also thinking that foam could be a much bigger issue.

I think it has auto fill and probably not so awkward to carry but I don't own one so I don't know. I've read the Water Otter is awkward to carry but again I don't own one so I don't know on that either.

You are correct. The 7304 Mytee Water Hog Pressure Sprayer has a 7 gallon solution tank as well as auto fill.

I got the 7304 Mytee Water Hog Pressure Sprayer not only for a very versatile portable set up. I got it for full room carpet dyeing jobs too. I needed a solution tank which the Water Hog has and the Pumptec Water Otter does not have. Plus it looks a hell of a lot better in cased if/when you bring it into a customer's house.

I have the Water Otter and yes it can be awkward to carry but is very compact and I can also use it with my 50gallon fresh water tank or customers tap.

I can see that . I only use mine for T&G and a back up.

It's nice to have as back to my TM as well. About 5 years ago my Amwreck TM's pump died on me. SO I used my TM for vacuum, the heat exchangers for hot water, and filled my Mytee M5 portable and used it's pump for my solution line. It carried me for a couple days till I got my pump fixed on my TM. :)

Another reason I got this new portable set up of the Mytee Air Hog and Mytee Water Hog is because I just bought a Motorhome. I'm looking forward to the day the wife, my dog , and I hit the road. I wanted something I could put under the Motorhome and store so I could still pick up jobs here and there for gas money. I'll need lots of gas money too. :)

Awesome that things are going well Johnny. I always thought a pair of the 7303 boosters one in the truck and one on the porch with a couple of cheap unpreasurized tanks in the van could be an interesting setup. The clean tank in the van with a 300 psi pump and a 300 psi backup pump in a tool box that you can hook up to the customer's shower or sink. With a good wand and a crb or 175 and a brush, good chems, you should be able to do good work. The booster and pump in the van uses a relatively small generator when needed. The porch booster uses the house power. If you can dump in the yard you apo from the porch booster, if not you apo from the van booster into a waste tank in the van.

I'm a fan of dumping into the customers toilet, it adds more weight to the worth of my cleaning when they see what's coming out of their home!

I know that you are going to be impessed with the results and shocked at the performance.
So I'm looking to get again quad motors 230V Escape ( if I can find one) because I don't want to work with a portable unit in event that something goes wrong with my cripled Escape I have right now.I'm reluctant to get new Lx Escape for two reasons. 1. Not enough power for nasty restaurant tiles( only 500 psi and I don't want to deal with other forms while cleaning 2 locations at night 2. Dual 6.6 might be strong, but at some point can get choked with grime coming from carpeting.
I have existing setup upgraded with a help of @ goomer and his mod plates for dual 6.6 ' supported by dual 5.7. Right now I'm working only with a 3 motors, but they're peeform well at 200'. To bump it little bit, another 6.6 is coming soon. Not Lx, dual 6.6 2stages 230 V. What do you think?

If you have the power to spare on your generator, that will work fine. You should consider LX's at some point though.

I'm going to test an LX and a 2 stage 8.4 in series this week. I was very impressed with a leading LX and a trailing 2 stage 6.6's performance and the amp savings it had in series. I have a feeling that the 8.4 will be even better especially if staying under 15 amps per cord is a priority with a big HP pump.

Jim, So now that i've got this Air Hog LX, what if any use is my Air Series 23? I've had it for years and only used it two times. This was back in my ETM stage. I had An older Air Hog out front, that went to my Mytee M5 with the Air Series behind the M5 and a Little Giant Propane heater. I of course had to run a generator as well as use the customer's electrical. That's when I decided to go the TM route and to be honest have had no regrets.
Any ways you seem to know your stuff. Just wondering if I should sell the Mytee Air Series 23 now or hold onto it.

I just looked up your old ETM, you had quite the setup! I don't see how a parallel booster will help you with the Airhog LX (Seems like the air 23 is a rare piece of equipment, it should fetch a good price if wanted to sell it (don't know what other machines you have). If you are using just the Airhog LX it is very capable at 150' and doesn't need any help under that IMO.
