It was very hot for the last few days and yesterday middle of my last job one of my LX vac stopped working, I had to finish the job with one vac. When I got home they both working, it was the weather that caused it. I do leave all my doors open for ventilation but the heat was in the extreme side.
Were they plugged into dedicated circuits? Could one of the breakers have popped if other items were running on that circuit?

The one that stopped working was plugged in the kitchen, the other one in the garage and my water Otter in the living room. Do you think something may be wrong with the extension cord? We checked the breaker and everything was ok. The day before the weather was even more hotter and they worked fine. This is the first time it is happening.

I don't think so Johnny, I checked the connection and the pump was working on the same line, it's mysterious, or I think it's the hot weather but as I said we had hotter weather and worked fine.

I figured it probably wasn't. You're a much better mechanic then I am. Just trying to help. :)

Do the LX motors have a Thermal overload switch ?

I don’t know. There are no thermals in those motors so the motor shouldn’t shut down in its own.
no.

I have seen push on blade terminals get hot and expand and create a bad connection if you have them in your system I would recommend checking them out for carbon traces
Most common points of failure in a machine is butt connectors and crimped blade terminals. At least that's where I would look

First thing I checked was the customers electricity box, then I looked at the light of my electric power reel that powers that particular vac and pump and it was on, I checked the pump and that worked, then I check the switch by opening that front panel and all the connections were in place and the switch worked nicely, then I gave up and started to work with one vac, by the way one vac had enough power at 75ft, I came home and I was ready to replace the vac, I have plugged the same power wire and it worked. Yesterday I had no issues. If it happens again I will examine it differently I got some other ideas.

If he had an Airhog he wouldn't have to move his machine, would clean faster and deeper.

A 2" wand is too much wand for his current portable.

What are you basing this advice off of AZ?
Now with some experience...re-readin this thread is reducing anxiety about using my LX air hog on my max hose runs of 2" 125' hose.

Seems I don't need to be worried about lack of vacuum at this distance.

At 150' would you guys say the airhog still delivers a deep professional clean? (seem to worry that one day ill need 150' on a job)

No not for me, 150 ft I don't get any good performance with my LX vacs, 100 is the max for me and 125 is poor. Works best up to 75ft. This is my experience with the LX vacs for the last few months.

There are short comings and advantages to portables. One of the advantages is it's portable. No need to have pong hose runs with it, it has wheels and its portable.

I have a Hydramaster CDS, basically the same as a Butler. With my TM you always want to use the shortest hose run possible. Same thing will go with a portable.

Can understand wanting to use as short hose as possible but on something like a butler can’t you get performance to do a professional job with good dry times from great distance like 2-400ft??
