New member here and wanted to say have been getting a lot of good information from the many posters and their informative comments. So thought I would just share some FYI about a piece of new equipment I recently made. Have been cleaning carpet since 1980, and currently have a number of different pieces, but have been doing VLM for years. Have owned John G's machines for a while, but have been recently looking at the Orbot Vibe, or at least wanting too. So, wanting some more information, like a nearby distributor here in Pennsylvania, tried going thru Orbots company website requesting that info, what did I find? Some of the links didn't work, but did manage to find an email, No Reply, next, called the company phone number, no person answered, however left message of my request. No Reply! I think I was impressed by the looks of the machine. You know, all looks, no brains! Next, I called Victoria at Trinity Renewal, sometimes I used to talk to John or Patty, but thats been a few years ago, she of course answered the phone personally, and like usual gave me good advice, and suggestions, I think thats called customer service, immediate! They were having a good Black Friday deal on the Phoenix, my most recent machine had been the Trinity Profit, perhaps 10 years or so ago, Well, who do you think I decided to purchase from? Trinity Renewal. Have had few to any problems with the earlier machines that I've had, for me they do great with the mostly residential customers I have, but have been impressed with the work they also do with my commercial customers, and am confident that the newer, faster and of course a bit more expensive piece of equipment will no doubt be the last machine I will need to own. And of course nice to see the variety of equipment that is available to us today. In my own business, customer service brings customers back, gets future referrals, doesn't matter how small the job, and I continue to find that to be true with the service I receive from places like Trinity Renewal, keep up the good work.

The Orbot Vibe is sold through dealers like outspends and little to no sales come from corporate anymore. The fit, finish and durability can’t be beat. It’s also more maneuverable, easier to use and has removable weights for ease of transport and work on variable fibers and floor types.

Buy here...

The advantage of buying with us is a free 299.00 course, a complete chemical package and knowing TMF gives back to Autism charity. Plus we help cleaners in need from natural disasters/fires/thefts.

Vibe is an awsome machine getting rdy to use it right now

The hourly rates and profits with it are insane compared to hwe

if your cleaning is scrubbing in the encap and leaving the extraction for some one else then 100% encap the crb will do . If your cleaning is scrubbing in the encap and padding for extraction the vibe will perform Far Superior . Pad capping #1

Rob ... I needed a new 10'' CRB so I bought it from TMF Store and you also get a free VLM Training Course with it. Thanks to Robyn getting me set up, I got to watch it today. It was very good and very thorough. I enjoyed it.

TMF has excellent customer service !!! Thank You Robyn

I take my sprayer off the SprayBorg and it makes it so much easier to use in residential. It's lighter and easier getting up and down steps, lifting into the van, and getting into tighter areas.

When I do commercial I put the sprayer back on. I love that SprayBorg especially since I got the red bristle driver. It's much more aggressive, and digs deeper with the red bristle driver.

I have a Trinity Freedom also, and it's a POS in my opinion. It's too big, too heavy, it will pop 15 amp breakers, it tears up bonnets, it's too damn violent. Using speed 2 doesn't help much. I wasted $2495.00 on that POS.
When I first got it I used it on a vacant 3rd floor apartment. The walls and floor was shaking. I guess nobody below on the 2nd floor was home because if they were they would have called the police. It's unusable for residential but ok for most commercial with 20 amp.

I bought two Orbot Vibes from TMF and they both work very well. I have had one over a year and the other one about 5 months. Also, you get a bonus of some chemical credit. I have bought some Agiclean Fiber pads from them, and they work well. I am going to try the Neptune Fiber pads soon and see how those perform.

Right they’re sold through other dealers but that doesn’t excuse their zero response imo

I use the Ironman pads and they extract and hold alot of soil.I also use glad and microfiber pads. commercial i will use microfiber pads and residential i will use glad pads and trash areas i will use glad pads after a good brush scrubbing.

Here is a picture of my SprayBorg without the sprayer/jug on it. It takes about 10 minutes to take off or put back on. It's much easier using it this way for residential.

With the red bristle driver making it more aggressive I don't usually add weights. I've had it for 6 years with no problems.

I prespray and then scrub with a CRB and then extract with cotton bonnets on the SprayBorg or Challenger or Mytee Eco Lite 13.

I bought a new Cimex about 5 years ago. Used it one time in a Church Sanctuary and then sold it. Put it on craigslist and it sold in 2 days. I lost 500 bucks.
