I think its pretty worth it but the complete Butler packages are enticing if your going to end up paying near $1000/month anyways going the loan route...

if your paying cash or mostly cash then get the everest

Johnny i have had mine for a year now,not one issue.Its powerful,heaps of heat and vacuum and reliable.Prior to the Everest i had an SS570 which gave me headaches,should have just gone straight to the Everest.It was a major decision as i was the first in New Zealand to purchase an Everest at a cost of 53K however im glad i made the decision its a great unit.

I have one with 2300hrs. It’s been great with no real issues. It makes tons and tons of heat and the vacuum is amazing. If I were to buy another one I wouldn’t get high pressure or e-idle. I would get Everest 650. E-idle is finicky and I never use high pressure so I would save the cash. Hope this helps It’s scary to spend that kinda money but you’ll be glad you did.

Oh I have had to change two pressure hoses and they are a pain to get to.

It is a higher maintenance machine, blower belts need to be changed every 600 hours. Tends to leak oil but not a major issue.

As others said, major heat and suction. Also the high pressure option is nice but you can do just fine on tile without it as it will still put out 1,200 psi but the heat will drop off and flow is lower.

If the blower is smaller it's not the same machine. The 650 is known to need blower belts more often , but that's about the worst of it...it's a great machine.

I never said that Prochem isn't owned by Legend Brands. It was the
"it will be a mix of prochem/sapphire technology." statement that is inaccurate.
The Prochem Everest is being manufactured by Karcher, so no, Legend Brands engineers have not changed the Everest.

Feel free to call me if you would like to discuss further.
