What you say is why I have bought a 60 lb Koblenz 13 inch 175 (I also have a TMF CRB, it is nice to use for agitation on non rat nasties). Just took it for a spin today, but with a red pad. Fun stuff. I need to get a carpet brush and a tile brush and some green and blue pads, and white buffing pads for wood and vinyl.

You use a solution tank on your 175, to save time, right? No other reason than to save time, which is money?

Pat.....For the most part a shampoo tank (on a 175) is used to disperse either a dry, or a wet shampoo and not a traffic lane cleaner, though I know Mike Camacho used it for such reasons and maybe some others do too for all I know. But there is a difference of density of the two liquids and they will usually disperse at different speeds even though they would be dispersed through the same gravity feed. Movement of machine being equal of course.
They will also differ in the way that they are then broadcasted after they left the tank and hit the carpet.

I know this sounds a little confusing. Sorry.

Ok, you are referring to "shampooing" vs. hwe?
