See the very latest in ETMs... WHY what's new?

Form what I have seen in the last few years.
I do not think I would buy one.
Big and clumsy looking escapes. and also power hungry with misleading information on technical details on listing.

Just my opinion, and I said that for years.
Then you should stay home. There’s nothing for you to see.

I can't wait to see what mytee going to be coming out with.

I wonder if cross American corporation will be there with their latest machine. See if he fixed some of the issues with his current offerings

Cross American is a smaller operation and as such won't be there. This is my thread, it's about Mytee, not C/A, please let's keep it about Mytee. Thank you.

We should have the Bentley Pro at the Experience show as well as the 17” CRB.
Yeah I just found out that I'm going to need some work done on one of my shoulders and my other one isn't looking too great I'm going to need a push pull style wand. The Bentley pro looks like a real winner John.

I understand also if you don't want to answer this question till after it's at the show but is your new 17 inch crb belt drive I really like that from the carpet shark

Both the 10” and the 17” Carpet Shark CRBs are dual motor belt driven.

Great looks like I'm going to have to save some pennies!
My experience with the Austrian machines. they don't break often but when they do parts can be difficult to get.
Mytee has excellent customer service when I want to add pump out to my speedster the parts are easy to locate on the website and order and I received them fairly quickly.

And to me the dual motor belt drive just makes sense should be more robust than plastic gears

If a bearing seizes with the gears that’s when the gears get stripped.

Yeah you nailed it that's the most common issue.
On my first machine I replace my bearings the second they start making noise and I haven't had to replace any gears yet in that machine.
But I did buy a second machine from Craigslist that had stripped gears and that was the issue. That machine was a pain to get fixed. Normally I just get bearings from a local bearing supply shop so no big. But the gears took forever to get here it was well over 60 days. I got the machine cheap enough it was worth it.

I just think it's time to get another new one that looks nice to keep in the van I could park these in my encap maintenance accounts.

I seen Johnny show photos of his collection of Mytee carpet clearing extractors, He must have every booster and top end portatable since the M5.

Two series of Mytee Airhogs on stage running into an early Devastator filter in a 8000 Sf auditorium that needed extraction...did the rest of the facility with my Trinity OP and Mytee variable speed rotary...15000sf job....

I still have one of those early Devastator filters myself.
