If I could see in the picture where it was, I'd drive there and snatch it up at that price.

Just picked it up the thing is a beauty Wow I am very impressed can't wait to try it for reals, my question is is that bad driver good it feels like a thin piece of plastic or am I just used to the thick solid blocks on a 175?

Yes it's good. Be sure to order another driver just to have on hand.

That's a great buy man. The Orbot is a great looking machine that will get people asking you questions because it just looks different.

Be sure and get some Glads or HOS Superzorbs as well as some microfiber with scrub strips from directmopsales.com.

You will see a huge difference in cleaning speed and power over a 175 imo. Good Luck!

Call Excellent Supply and get the Dura-Grip. It's a pad driver that fits perfectly on the Orbot. Much better than the velcro. For some reason they don't have it on there website. You have to call and order it. It cost about $50.00. You can go to there forum and search dura-grip to read about it.

My Wife even liked the machine as well as the and how easy it is to use, feels like a vacuum cleaner. I can see the weights are a must... Im guessing everyone uses them from many videos I've seen. The thing is a beauty!

The good thing is I already have so many pads fro prosorb, MF, MB and Superzorbs so I am good to go.

Not only is the machine nicely built new looking and a beauty, it also is very quiet and smooth, my Low Boy 8000 is very loud...

When I started looking for a machine which ever best deal came first Trinity/Orbot I called Orbot to see if I did buy a machine and something did end up being wrong worst case scenario would be $500 so that helped in deciding. Hopefully I get years of service though. Now I need weights... and an extra pad driver as that looks like it can break easy. Thanks @Lefty724

worth it for that price
probably 4-6 years old
I would also get some extra switches and hunt down an extra (higher quality) bearing to have on hand when the time comes.
Also what size jets are on it? depending on the year they had WAY to large of jets on from factory.

Where do you get the bearings from? The manufacturer? They wont sell direct but I will try again ;)
