Another thing to think about is that when you upgrade to a tm later on the nautilus will be too bulky to fit in your loaded truck. You rather buy a smaller much more compact unit so later on if your tm is down for service you can easily fit your porty in your van as a back up usage.

That’s a good point.. although after years in the business I swear I’ve learned to master packing a truck full to the brim.. I’m assuming you guys understand but yes absolutely I’ll look into dimensions, weight, etc. thank you

I used to load a Nautilus in my old van all the time with plenty of room. Just need to make sure you set yourself up right. I like the Nautilus for a one man crew because of the wheels on the handles. Just tilt it and slide it right in and out no issues.

I own a nautilus MXE auto fill and auto pump out 500 psi. Have done a lot of carpets and it may take a little longer it has worked good and no big issues. The only issue I have had is one of the vacuum motors will shut off when it gets overheated. So I have a separate fan blow on machine when cleaning.
you probably have the earlier models, the newer ones has two cooling fans attached to its sides (mxe-500m). In addition, my local distributors made sure it comes with the 12 gauge copper wires (which theoretically can handle 20 amps/2400w), so it won't ever overheat.
