Right now I'm looking at the pmf and TMF stair tools. Any others I should consider? I want a quality tool, and don't mind dishing out a few extra dollars for the right one. Looking for opinions/recommendations.

Have that one. Want one shorter. Almost as small as an upholstery tool but with a handle and 06 jet

It's a 40 " length ? I use 29" on medium soiled steps . On lightly soiled stairs I get away with one of my light weight regular West pak 2 jet wands.
Congratulations to your life time achievement.

Whatever you decide for, refrain from using upholstery tool of any kind, please. I know , many of us us'em
as excuse for detailing bull nose or side edges. I watch my aging knees and do everything, but kneel , in order to make steps look very presentable, including final dry with end of hose or some sort of contraption I make. I'm not ready to get artificial ones yet. My rule of thumb, longer the handle, less bending is involved. Obviously, cleaning has to be supported by pressure, jets, flow , CFM & lift and little CC's love. Once a year I leave carpet wet, but never on the stairs. That's my rule

I use the same stubby stair tool rob showed in his video. I'll admit for 20 years I just used the carpet wand and I still do occasionally but the more I use the stair tool the more I like it. I bought my stair tool from the TMF store.

Love the prochem stair tool


Sent from my iPhone using TMF Forums
I used that Prochem tool for a number of years and still have it. I've been using a short S bend stair tool for a while now and much prefer it over the Prochem. Does just as good a job in a lot less time and effort. Neither tool is perfect for stairs, but the the design of the mini- wand style with a 10 inch vacuum slot sure is a whole lot easier and faster. Just last Monday I decided to pull my old Prochem out. Haven't used it in several years. It took a lot longer to do a standard set of stairs w/o any improvement in quality of the job. The tool I'm using cost almost 1/3'rd the amount of the Prochem tool.

I purchased a a fairly new van and tm (200 hrs) setup that was a repo. It came with a lot of equipment including a stubby stair tool that I've never used.

It's for sale to anyone who wants it.

I take the handles off of mine. Find them lighter and easier to maneuver on risers and bull nose.

That's the one I use and its a great tool very lightweight. I also turn pressure down to 300psi and use it on furniture sometines have to use a smaller tool for detail but it works great for cushions pillows and bases

It's 1.5" tube with a 1.75" flare? How heavy is that? I like it a lot. Can you share source, please
