Me too. I.may be able to get good heat or steam with the added 3500 from steam brite. But man, that's alot of added wattage too. Where the hell am I going to run all this if the customers house cannot handle it. Then will need a generator. Then I'm right at a diesel heater price point!!
A two cord heater is a bad idea from the beginning
Memes with a diesel heater you still have to have one cord or a battery hookup
Plus all the complex moving parts as in a diesel heater
Save your pennies by Little Giant or wait till I come out with what I have

170 is right
Why would you have fuel heat and run it so low though
dont need massive heat if you have large vacuum and massive water flow....
i run a bonzer...14 flow.... full throttle continual flow ...never trigger.....
havent measured but probably 2-2.5gpm

this is the similiar process that pressure washers use....
they never get over 180 degrees....
but they can cut bark off of a tree cause there water flow is 6-8 gpm

you are wasting your time with electric heat......
we have all been there....
thats why mytee and cross america dont offer many units with electric heat...doesnt work for any wand over 4-6 flow....
specs way back showed the 6000 watt heater
at 20 btu
that is only 1/3 of a 65btu propane heater.....

6000 watt heater=20k btu...
2000 watt heater=6k btu...
Propane =65k btu and up to 120k btu
Diesel heaters= 250k.....350k btu....

Your flow statements going to make jim real upset

14 flow doesnt work with every tool just the bonzer....
because of the way it is designed.........

however you do need a pumpout as your tank can fill in 1 hour......

This is so true, if your vacuum is on point the next step is to up your flow. With LX's bump up the flow to 1.5 GPM through the wand and you will see a difference. With good chemistry, killer vacuum, agitation and high flow the results are amazing even with just hot tap water.

Last week I cleaned a carpet for a realtor I work with that her other carpet cleaner cleaned twice with a TM and she wasn't happy at all with it. Good chems, green pad on the Oreck and just hot tap water crushed it. She couldn't believe the difference the little electric machine had made vs the TM. Stellar results fast are possible without massive heat, but don't trust me, try it.

@Fedri also another tip, if you have been running the LG for a while... pull the propane hose off and run brake cleaner through it. I did this after putting 5yrs on our #4 and the heat increase was significant.
Brake cleaner ? Ive always used distilled vinegar .

hahaha may be i should bring both my wand and my little giant for welding to you. however i read that welding the coils might not be a permanent thing, it won't last too long, thats why i have decided to replace the coils, in the mean time i will set up my other 3h little giant and use that for now and probably stay with that because of high pressure for tile grout cleaning with my otter pump to minimize the manual scrubbing.
Used the 2 HT for 8 years . Switching to the 3HT last year I have noticed the heat is hotter and more constant . Especially noticeable in the WINTER months.
Next trip to Mexico drain or run some RV anti freeze thru your system. Eliminates human error or a power outage.

i will do that thanks, my trip was a last minute deal and wasn't able to think with excitement. but i can't wait to use the 3ht, i am buying the little giant kit from steam brite so it provides its full capacity.

does your barbecue propane tank still freezes at certain point that you have mentioned, i heard that it wouldn't if hooking it up with the correct fittings, that is why i am buying all that from steam brite

Cleaning carpet with cold water is like cleaning clothes in cold water. It
still works but hot is a lot better. In fact, if you remember from your
tenth grade chemistry class the speed in which water molecules vibrate is
double at 136 degrees F. than water molecules at 118 degree F. Every 18
degrees of water temperature increase exponentionaly doubles past 118
degrees. For example, 154 degree molecules vibrates 4 times faster than 118
degrees. The opposite is true. When water cools below 32 degree, vibration
slows down the water molecules that the liquid become a solid and forms ice.
With all that said the theory is that with hotter water, you can use a lot
less chemical, dwell time, and agitation to achieve the same results. The
is what is called the cleaning pie. The cleaning pie consist of four equal
slices. Heat, Agitation, Dwell Time, and Chemical Action. If you increase
the size of one of the pie pieces the need for each of the other remaining 3
pieces is reduced. It does not matter which pie piece you enlarge, the
theory remains true. The best possible cleaning would be a system that uses
all four slices in abundance. Why do you think people spend $10000 on a
truckmount (more heat, pressure, and vacuum and more automation) or on a
Volcano 6000 watt heater if they use portables?
I also want to comment on the heat that you will get out of a 2000 watt
heater. All the brands of the 1750 watt to 9000 watt heaters use
thermostats that turn the water heater off when the water temperature
reaches 210 degrees. (like when you set the wand down and quit cleaning for
a while) The rate of water temperature rise is based on power consumption
and water flow. The average in-line water heater only holds 8 ounces of
water. So when you are cleaning carpet, the water is flowing pretty fast
through the heater and the average temperature rinse is only 25 to 50
degrees F. When cleaning upholstery, because the spray jet is small and
uses less water per hour, a 2000 watt heater is quite impressive. Sometimes
people tell me "25 degree is not very much improvement, is it really worth
the money?" My answer is "Yes!" Twenty five degrees is past the 18 degree
temperature rise mentioned above, so you will more than double your cleaning
efficiency!

I have been using the Prochem Legend for 3 yrs now and the heat exchanger does not really produce steamy hot water but it works. If the carpet is really dirty just pre-scrub it then rinse.

I also have an older Mytee Speedster that has a 1/3 HP motor and heat. It still works as long as you fill the tank with hot tap water. It just takes longer because you have to do more passes because of the low flow.

Im currently modifying a newer LTD3 with LX vacs and it will have 1/2 HP motor and .16 cam for pump to achieve higher flow at 400 psi. It has a built in heater so I don't need more heat as long as I use hot tap water.

Portable will work with its built in heater as long as you use hot tap water, agitate if needed and use at least 1/2 HP motor and higher cam. Of course with stronger vacuum and good quality chemicals.

Since the temperatures has dropped it has only done it once when I was melting a sheet load of Play dough at a day care.

I use the same items in their list except http://www.steam-brite.com/little-giant-pr2000psi-pressure-relief-valve-2000-extreme-pressure-models-p-14689.html
this should nor affect the propane distribution.

If you want good vacuum, good water pressure (400 psi) and good flow and heat, it has to be 3 chords. Mytee missed a market with their water hog by putting the big 1 1/2HP in there. They could have a 1/2 HP and a heater running on one 15 amp chord.

Its tempting to just buy a big electric and add to my existing. So my current edic is 2000 watts. And if I'm heavy on the gas it seems to keep at the temp of what I add to the tank at 120 from the tap.
So if I added even the mytee turbo could maybe get 150 degrees!!!
Or steam brites 3500 water. I'm betting 150 degrees is enough.
But then I would be pulling g some juice. And if I have to buy a generator then what's the point!! I'm at the exact same price as a new little giant almost!!
But then, having a generator would be really nice too.........
