I finally haves saved up and about to get started with a cleaning business but had some questions? I have narrowed my search down to two portables.
1. Nautilus mxe-500 but with the extra weight and dimensions can you run 100-150ft hose off of this machine, to save from taking it up the steps? Are they pretty reliable?
2. Mytee 1005-lx how far can you run the hose off of one of these machines? With the virus they are on back order, but are a little smaller and not as heavy? Are they reliable?

Any advice or insight would be greatly appreciated it, hoping to order the machine in the next couple of days. Thank You, Cameron

I did a lot of research and settled on the Mytee air hog and water hog. Two separate units but the water hog puts out 1000 psi so you can clean tile no problem. No heater but I doubt you would be able to maintain 220 degrees with another portable regardless. The air hog is super light but the water hog you need to lift with the legs. I’m very happy with both.
