Game changer?? Just bought an ORBOT Sprayborg and love it but damn. Coming FEB 2018..What are your thoughts VLM"rs. And please without the hate, just your honest insight.

That is not exactly correct. While the rpm is the same the speed comes from the extra torque from the HP overcoming the resistance that that carpet exerts on the pad driver. Also this unit is unique in that it has chemical injection.HP has nothing to do with speed, take three OP machines, one on 1/2 hp, one with 1 hp and one with 1.5 hp, they all do exactly the same at 1725 rpm. Could be cheaper chinese leeson motors are having a problem with larger orbit, but zero speed change by adding more hp.
Unless your 1 hp is not running at 1725rpm that is a bogus claim, and chemical injection has nothing to do with speed either.That is not exactly correct. While the rpm is the same the speed comes from the extra torque from the HP overcoming the resistance that that carpet exerts on the pad driver. Also this unit is unique in that it has chemical injection.
Like I said you can think what you want. However, you’re mistaking. Let me ask you. Have you run an ECO17 HP? I’m sure you have not, otherwise you would not make the comments that you’re making.Of course you disagree, it is a marketing thing, has NOTHING to do with reality though.
In a previous post I tried to explain what we have learned. I’ll try to do a better job this time as I can understand why you would struggle with the concept. Your are right about the motor speed all going 1725 rpm’s. That only refers to the oscillation only. And yes a 1/2 hp 1725 rpm is the same as a 1.5 ho motor. The oscillations are identical. But if you have experience using and orbital then you would observe that the pad driver is also rotating in addition to oscillating. This is where the additional hp comes into play. Previously our 1 hp unit had about 80 rotation and the 1.5 hp had over 100 in addition to the 1725 oscellation. As to that we originally had a 3/8” stroke on the orbit we now have 9/16” which is an increase of 50%. As you can see for Mytee to say we are 20% faster is a conservative statement. I would add that those who have the ECO17 HP agree without exception that it is easily 20% faster.Seriously? Ok, quantify 20% faster cleaning, tell us how you figured that out, or made it up. Your assumptions make no sense, other than for marketing. Anyone who understands how motors work understands this is bs. Are you saying the 1HP is too weak to do the job? You saying that just having extra torque but NOT actually running any faster speeds up cleaning? lol.
