    I'm considering adding the Orbot as a tool into my line up and would like to survey the community about the following questions.

    Thanks in advance for taking the time to reply to my post.

    • What do you use the Orbot for? A primary cleaning system or more of a touch up tool?
    • What surfaces do you use the Orbot to clean?
    • Are there things you thought you would use the Orbot for that you’re not?
    • What did you use before you purchased the Orbot?
    • Quality of the machine?
    • What type of productivity rates are you getting for each surface type?
    • Does operator fatigue ever become an issue?
    • What about training? How long has it taken to get you or your crew trained?
    • Machine maintenance , does it require much?
    • Durable – have you had any repair issues?
    • What don’t you like about it?
    • Any additional comments you’d like to add?

    I have the Vibe. Used the Orbot. The Orbot has a few advantages, but I am very happy with the Vibe considering the cost.

    1-2-Commercial carpets, high rises and tile cleaning

    3-Marble polishing-Find myself using 13” 175

    4-Cimex, too heavy and not versatile

    5-Quality is second to none

    6-2-3000 sq ft hour

    7-No operator fatigue

    8-15 mins

    9-Little to no maintenance

    10-Zero issues-Built like a Lexus

    11-Wish handle folded down for storage like Sprayborg

    12-We carry them and many other brands in stock to sell and use our school. Every one my techs and students over last 2 years picked Vibe to buy or take in field. Speaks volumes.

    I use the orbit for agitation. I have the green brush and use it on carpet.
    Today I cleaned 4000 feet of some odd flag stone that looked like crystals. I could have just used grout master and the spinner but the lady insisted on a brush to agitate. I made $1250. In 6 hours.
    It is solidly built, low pirced, and small enough to carry upstairs and get into small areas. I got the 50 foot cord. I like that.

    I have the little oreck orbital to, it's a nice little tool to have, it's small and doesn't take up too much space.
    it doesn't get used that much but it does come in handy at times

    I have tried both, but never owned Trinity. Tried it on some jobs when I had the chance.

    The Trinity equipment performed well. It is rather pricey. Others on the same job liked it a lot.

    Orbitec also did the job very well but not with the same convenience as the Trinity equipment. But a better value IMO.

    I was wondering because I heard they were quite a bit faster adding to the value, thanks though, will keep shopping and researching the different machines, seems like a lot to choose from.
