Here is a Rotovac review of the 360i rotary version. Today I took it to a 9,000 sq ft commercial building and used it against everything I practically have in the truck. I had the Zipper,175 style w/pads,Prochem Ti wand and the Cimex. We tested the tools against each other in most of the areas. The majority of the filthy traffic patterns we did with the 360i and new carpet brush head. It rocked 'em! I didn't stop there, I demoed the tile & grout cleaning in the bathrooms. She was impressed and is going to have us back to clean those too. Remember always look for opportunities to demo any service that you offer. ;)

We charged 25 cents a sq ft.
It took 3 guys 5 hours.
$2300.00


Rotovac did a great job and paid for itself in one day! ;)

Here is a little sample. Eventually I will put together the whole video comparison. But for now enjoy this snippet.

How are you guys dealing with swirl marks left by the 360? I've been hesitant to use mine on CGD for that reason.

We have the bonnet block and the pads to post groom with. Worked great.

Yep a lot easier Jason but I was beat afterwards. But I'm getting to old to clean 5 straight hours. :eek:

I don't mind to do 1 dry with my wand...+ gets dryer lol
That's what I've been doing as well, it just takes so long. You're basically doing the carpet twice. I find that good mechanical agitation followed up with the wand gives me the same results as the Rotovac on CGD. Still playing with it though.

How do you like the 360 compared to a rx20? I am using rx20 it is larger that 360 so you would think less passes. It is heavier too I have wondered about the 360 love my RX. All so do you use 360 for residential?

Hey Ron,

Why don't you and I set up a play date and we could try each others equipment out. What do you think?
