Bought a new Bently Wand and this is how it showed up. What am i missing to hold it together? Don't i get the coupler to shorten the length? From what I understand it should have showed up in 1 piece with coupler. Thanks in advance.

that is strange @John LaBarbera
you were suppose to get the coupler to shorten it also you should have the black round thing to hold the 14in manifold and the tube. John can help.

damn, Im sure they will make the swivel problem correct but personally I would go with a wand that you can adjust the jets
i have the tmf wand with adjustable jets and i have never adjusted anything. i don't know why would technicians play with that or why would it be so important

Sheer has really nothing to do with how close the jets are to the vacuum but the angle in which the water penetrates into the carpet. Low sheer creates deeper penetration while high sheer creates a lower penetration. Helps on dirty carpets to get a deeper clean and better dry times a carpet that’s no so dirty depending on your adjustment

yup

also everyone holds their wand at a slightly different angle, so you should be able to adjust it accordingly. The vac slot will still bite at a lot of different angles but the jets will hit differently depending on how tall the operator is.

I do agree with Fredi about most people never really utilizing their sheer adjustment but the rotaries being relatively cheap to own now there’s almost no need adjust the sheer it’s easier to switch to a rotary when needed

Exactly, these days we have better pre sprays that works amazing again filthy carpets. Another option is pre scrub and then extract. I rather have my jets hitting close to the vacuum, adjusting those jets far apart from the vacuum will lead more water under the pad, imo this is not the right way of cleaning. If it's filthy use superior more concentrated pre sprays or at least pre scrub so you don't move those jets far away from the vacuum.

Problem is being resolved, Thank you John.
The wand does have shear built in and it is
built very solid. It’s light and swivels, love it already.

I do agree the jets could use some adjustment. I personally found the jets a little too low for certain types of carpets with thicker pile if using the stock metal glide. Right now I'm using a holed Greenglide and it pretty much solves that problem. I don't like the stock metal glide very much although it's not terrible. I find the wand works best on shorter pile or cgd with the metal glide. I think the angle of the jets is fine for most cleaning. I got very good water recovery with the stock glide, but noticeably better with the Greenglide. The jets hit just behind the Greenglide which is exactly what I want them to do. I think they're the perfect height and angle with this glide.

Agreed. But if you’re limited on equipment, a good sheer kit can take a mediocre wand to the next level

I doubt it's even possible to put a sheer kit on the Bentley. There's no room to move the jets up at all and as it comes to you they can't be put down any lower at all either. I don't see a way to do it anyway.

Unfortunately, there is not much info to give. The glide that I have is a test run that I'm testing out for them. I would have preferred a slotted glide and still want one, but the holed glide does better than I expected. To my knowledge, they are not selling a glide for the Bentley at this time. Perhaps they will soon, but you will have to ask them about that. These glides are fairly expensive at over 200 each. I am impressed with the fit of the glide and the fact I only needed a rubber mallet to install it. Here is their number if you want to give them a call about it sometime. 866-438-8335

imo the original glide is the best out there comparing to any other glides, the original glide really glides easier then any other glide.
i have tried the glide from cobb here is the link and i really found out that it does not glide easily. these type of glides will not glide as easy as we think. don't spend your money. however if you really want to try it here is the link
