While in Florida, I had the opportunity to look at a Rotovac CFX/Ranger up-close; inside and out/up and down as well as ask a few fellas who have used it what they thought about it....99% of the comments that they and their clients had about were/are GREAT.

Anyway, when I first started researching the CC biz and various Portables, I saw a video about the 360I Rotary CC and immediately called Rotovac to inquire about their 360I Rotary. The Sales Rep was very informative, kind and courteous. While speaking, he explained to me that he cleaned carpets part-time with the 360I and Rotovac CFX portable carpet extractor (without the 27 gallon Ranger docking station.). He also explained that the CFX has Auto-Dump out, as well as Auto-Fill....when he explained that it came without a pump, but relied on the average 80 psi found in most homes, I became a bit concerned. He addressed my concerns by explaining that when using the 360I Rotary, you really did not need a lot of pressure because of the agitation created by the machine's rotary action. Made sense to me; but what about when wanting to use a conventional "push-n-pull" wand, hmmmmmm? He explained that 80 psi was a sufficient amount of pressure for residential, as long as a proper pre-treatment had been performed, then he also asked....why not use the 360I all of the time? Though i'm new to CC, I do have some experience from 2003. I was not buying that "80 psi being sufficient with a "push-n-pull" type of wand!

As the conversation progressed, he started telling me about the Ranger Docking Station....it can hold up to 27 gallons of cleaning water, very nice wheels for transporting and you simply "Dock" the CFX Portable Extractor onto it. I logged onto the net and went to their web-site to have a look see for myself....great looking unit (IMO); you get the Auto-Fill and Dump-Out features, because your "docking" the CFX to it. Here is more about what they have to say about it:

"The Ranger is about the same overall size as a standard 12 gallon portable extractor. The BIG difference is that it has an extra large 27 gallon clean water holding tank and a patented automatic empty pump out system. This enables the operator to clean more than twice as long as a standard extractor with out stopping to refill and empty. In addition, the Ranger's modular design allows the upper auto pump out extractor portion to be easily detached from the lower 27 gallon holding tank. This allows for easy loading and unloading from vehicle (two 40lb modules rather than one 80 lb machine) and for direct faucet hook up non-stop cleaning mode."

Also:

*Huge 27 gallon holding tank

*Auto pump out

*Dual high velocity vac
motors 200 CFM

*0-250 PSI Pump

*Converts to Compact CFX


*Eliminates The Bucket Brigade

*Optional Dual 3 Stage Vac Motors or 2 Dual Stage Motors

Everything impressed me about the complete modular set-up (CFX and Ranger together.), except the limited 250 psi!

If they were to offer an optional pump with a minimum of 500 psi for some of those nasty commercial jobs, I'd say they would have an absolute winner on their hands, especially after having the opportunity to see it up close and in person.

It would also be nice if the Auto-Fill feature that comes with the CFX Power Pod could also fill the Ranger Docking Station.

The 200 CFMs are awesome (IMO), but what is the WL"? I too will look into that and post the answer asap.

The machine is very well made, no shortage of quality craftsmanship here! The truly modular design is very useful as well!

When you have the opportunity, please watch this video, It will help you to better understand the conveinence of a machine such as this.... versatility as well:

(Note: this video shows the first 360, not the 360I.)

I think you'll find it interesting, who knows.....maybe you can add a 500 psi pump yourself? Worth checking out!;)

Here's a video of the CFX Pod unit:

I hope you enjoy!:)

Thanks!;)

p.s. If you think this is a machine that you would like to own....call Jeff Ellis at World of Clean's on-line store, he's/they're sure to save you some money!!!!

Some corrections:

"He explained that 80 psi was a sufficient amount of pressure for residential, as long as a proper pre-treatment had been performed, then he also asked....why not use the 360I all of the time? Though i'm new to CC, I do have some experience from 2003. I was not buying that "80 psi being sufficient with a "push-n-pull" type of wand!"

I'm sorry, I left the above paragraph incomplete....

Anyway, I have since purchased the Rotovac Powerwand and have decided that it would be used as a restoration tool, there's no way I want to be pulling a Rotary out every time I clean carpet....the wand is my first choice. So, that's my answer to his question asking "why not use the 360/Rotary "all-the-time".

Also,

"....great looking unit (IMO); you get the Auto-Fill and Dump-Out features, because your "docking" the CFX Pod to it. Here is more about what they have to say about it:"

The part about getting Auto-Fill was incorrect when docking the CFX to the Ranger....again, the Ranger holds 27 gallons of water, so you lose the Auto-Fill from the CFX when units are joined/docked together....they really should change that somehow IMO.

Thank you!;)

it's really missing tons of features

like add on espresso maker and cup warmer Ipod charger pop up chemical spotting kit, dvd bleu ray player, Tivo, micro wave mini oven,
mini fridge and food warmer, powered wheels for easy transport wand holder hose reels, remote start and stop, 10000000 psi pump 10000000 cfms 24 inches of true hg lift, auto folding ramp, GPS , nuclear heat, either run on one cord or two AAA reghargable batteries

not to forget total weight being under 80 pounds and a price under 499 dollars . which should include all hose life time supply of chemicals Ti wand stair tool and drimaster uph tool.

most of all not having Rockwell retro encabulator technology is just rude and lame I think meetee might be coming out with their own encabulator soon

Very nice and complete review AC

Thanks Tyler....i'm not sure what brevic and andy are talking about????

Anyway, I and many others feel it is "all-in-all" a great Portable....just needs a stronger pump in the docking station and Auto-Fill when docked to the Ranger; add those (2) features and you've got a quality built, innovative, VERY VERSATILE, outstanding, Electric CC machine that can out perform many over priced Electric machines that can cost you anywhere from 6-7,000.00 and are limited in their capabilities!

I don't recall mentioning anything about batteries, or missing "tons of features"....I mentioned (2), that's it!

I spoke with the Sales Rep at Rotovac today and he said that they could in fact add a stronger pump and that he would look into the Auto-Fill feature for the Ranger.

Thanks again!;)

terri, please let me know at what point I pissed you off???? I still don't get the smart-a_ _ remarks" and/or the idiotic videos you post that have absolutely nothing to do with what I have posted....be it this post or any other post.

Maybe it's that you feel threatened when someone posts threads about other Electric machines that are equal if not better than your over-priced machines and this is your way of retaliating???? (i'll say this....you are one bad-to-the-bone salesman to get anyone to pay the exuberant amount of money your asking for your machines, you saw them coming from a mile away....that's for sure!)

Whatever it is I may have done....I apologize....I'm sorry!

Please stop with the BS and the un-related idiotic videos....PLEASE!

I can not believ a residential carpet needs a 80 psi to clean.
you have to remember, the vendor always will try to sell you, but use your logic.
i prefer to contain the dirty water than bring the water. Meaning i prefer use costumer water than discharging nasty stuff in their toilets or sinks or whatever.
i don't think those vacuum motors are really the best, 200 cfm is ok, but what about the lift. can they answer straight xxx amount of lift, or will tell " it has aprox this xxxx amount" (i tell you this because i called cleancraft and they told aprx of cfm and aproc the lift and some bs)
Anyway, that machine looks like a toy, and i think it needs to be a truly professional machine which means it needs to have, a vacuum gauge, pressure gauge, etc etc.

I know every manufacturer should believe in their products but, compare and use you logic, and think and think and think.

the use of household pressure, which by average, ranges from 65psi to 90psi, is adequate to clean carpet, but 2 things must be done to attain the results desired.

1) pre-spray-dwell-aggitation
2) flood jets on wand

using the cfx, steamon demon, or any machine that utilizes the high flow/household pressure method, without employing the 2 points mentioned, wont cut the mustard too well.

with HWE, it is the flushing (flow) of the water, not the pressure, that rinses away the soil. pressure aids in the aggitation of the fibers.

if pressure is desired while using the cfx, one can use an external pump, and if the pump is strong enough, the cfx will make for a pretty good hard surfaces machine.

the beauty part of these type machines is the use of the household hot water, which everyone knows, definately improves the cleaning ability!

back in the '90's, one of lee stockwell's sons, or lee himself, built an electric truckmount called the pro-stock 1100, and was an excellent machine, compared to what was available at the time. it too utilized household pressure, and those that owned the unit, never voiced any complaints.
big john g owned one but not sure if he still does!

Jaime,

I don't have to "think x 3"....if you read my post complete, you would see that I too WAS NOT buying the 80 psi bit....with a Rotary and good pre-treat, I can see it 80 psi working though.

Compared to many other Portables with a 2 motor configuration, 200 CFM is not bad at all....

Also, if you read my original post complete, you would see again that I do not need to "think" and that I did use my "logic", as I too already addressed the WL" issue in my original post; I said...."I will call and ask for the WL" numbers asap and then post it."

I agree, the CFX Power Pod as a stand alone unit does look small...., but the (2) units together as a whole do not, has a very modern look, the viewing windows are pretty cool as do the spoked rear wheels.(IMO) though it may look like a "toy" to you, again, "99% of what the Distributor employees and their personal clients agreed that the machine performed great.'

As far as "containing" the dump water...you can. Just because the video uses the toilet or sink does not mean everyone else has too, you could run the Dump-Out hose to a waste tank in the Van or outside if you wanted to.


I guess in your opinion, the only "truly professional machine has a vacuum gauge, pressure gauge, etc., etc." Does the Eclipse have all of those gauges....NO....just a pressure gauge, why would you own a machine that is not "truly professional"? Not many Portys on the market that I know of have a vacuum gauge or "all of the gauges, etc, etc."....I guess the old Steamway with the fiber-glass body is a "truly professional" Porty because it does have all of those gauges? What other Portables do have a Vacuum gauge on the market today....I really do want to know, because I personally cannot think of many at all....not even 2 actually, so you've pretty much ruled out 99% of the Portables on the market today from being "truly professional".

Look forward to your reply!:)

Thanks!;)

Very well put bullets, you are not the first experienced CC that I have heard say the same as you have stated....I just feel that I would want at least up-to 500 psi for some of the greasy restaurant commercial carpet I have cleaned.

Thanks!;)

hey AC
first do not take any post personal, you should not.
anyway let me tell you this:
I made many mistakes, one of those was to buy the truckforce, also the eclipse and many other machines. I can say there is not a perfect machine and it won't be
Nobody says you should listen to me, or others, just listen to yourself, but i am trying to give my opinion right? all the forums are all about opinions right? so that is why i am trying to give my 2 cents
And believe me i hate when all the companies make up numbers and never tell you what is the best, one of those companies is clearly cleancraft.
anyway, i just wanted to say what i think om theory the cfx rotovac module

O.k., makes sense and I do understand the "opinion stuff" of course....sorry if I came across so strongly/defensively.

Guess you just mostly lost me on the "gauges" statement and the commenting on the issues that I had already addressed....as if you had not read the whole post before commenting.

No biggie!

Sorry that happened to you on the Eclipse and the Truck-Force.

With all of your knowledge and experience....I bet you could build the closet thing to the "perfect Electric machine"!;)

Do it please and offer it at a "reasonable price"!:)

Thanks!

I know something. it is possible to get with 2 cords and 15 amps 160 water lift almost 12 hg lift and 300 cfm and 1 pump and 1 apo.
problem with the companies, they don;t look constantly for the best vacuum motor, example the recoil 3xp with the jaguar, same body, but different motors and those motors were on the market for a long long time, but they just put it, now thhey removed the 3rd motors which was a vacuum lift leakage, etc etc. they improved the machine a lot, but still i dont know how the attached the vacuum to the stack pipe.
cleancraft use very cheap motors, mytee is using which i dont know the brand, but it looks with good power.
they know or they dont care about improving their equipment, but there are some great vacuum motors out there.
Now, i hope those companies mentioned above do not take it like it is a fact, those are my opinions only.

now when i mentioned gauge, we need to have gauge for everything, temp, vacuum, pressure, example for certain type of carpet we need to use different wands, now if we have the vacuum lift, and it is going up, that means that is the wand for that job.

also it should give you the advantage to use only one cords with out using another motor, i gave some ideas to Jim Morrow (Jim Steam here) so he can let know to Ed Valentine and he might like the idea and use it in the jaguar.
I also told him how he can improve the capacity of the tank raising uo 3 ore inches to the lid so the stack pipe can be higher. and many other stuff. (i will try to make video, my video with not edition, so people can see the truth about some equipment). This will also give me the advantage to take back some stuff i said and i was wrong, example about the wiring of the recoil, well it is a great wiring, but still i thing 12 gauge cords were necessary. etc etc

Bottom line, I want to see this industry with a nice machine and create some competition. I am pretty sure we can get good stuff, and sometimes we need to go back to the basics to get t right!

Jaime,

for what it's worth....I'm super impressed to see you writing about possibly doing some new videos, I had had heard through the grape-vine that rob allen had played a big role in the video reviews yall made together and that you didn't really mean or agree with 100% of what ra was saying!!!! Knowing that you really want to set the record straight is AWESOME!

I admit that when I learned of your joining WOC I had split feelings about it....2 thoughts....(1) AWESOME, this Fella can bring a lot to the Forum, especially the ETM/Portable segment of it! (2) But....what about those videos....hmmmmm?

Jaime, you have been nothing but a help since joining and it's AWESOME to have you here!

That's what so great about our Forum here at WOC....every and anybody can join, it's up to them what happens after they join!;)

Anyway, It is a shame that all of these manufacturers that have a lot of money at their disposal for development and research do not take advantage of more people such as yourself....or guys "in-the-field" in general! You would think with all of today's advances....we would have something close to the "perfect machine"; something close to what you said...."vacuum Gauges, pressure Gauges, emergency shut-offs, Auto- fill, Auto-Dump Out, 2 cords and 15 amps 160 water lift almost 12 hg lift and 300 cfm and 1 pump and 1 apo!" All in one package....it's really not asking for much. I think the Fiber-Glass bodied Steamway Portasble was the closet thing to the above described....it even had Auto Solution Metering.

I'm pretty sure that I need to be conversing with you more about my personal project!

I can only Hope that Ed V. will test out your ideas and if the test prove you to be correct....he will make these improvements; why not, why not try to have the "Most Powerful Machine Available?"

Jaime,

Ed. V. (IMHO) has an edge over most manufacturers because he has made himself "obtainable" to his owners such as Jimsteam, Sef and Ricky; people who are actually "in-the-field" that can relay vital "real world" results/information to him....I can't think of a more proud and loyal group myself!

Then there's the information provided to him by skilled and knowledgeable people such as yourself and Jan Sullins! (who also happens to be an owner)

THERE'S NO EXCUSE FOR ED. V. NOT TO HAVE THE "BADDEST PORTABLE/ETM IN THE WORLD WITH ALL OF THOSE GREAT RESOURCES AT HIS DISPOSAL....maybe a reason or two, but NO EXCUSE! (IMO)

Anyway, please share with me at your earliest convenience more about the "2 cord configuration" you wrote about, that can handle (2) 3-Stage Vacuums, APO and Auto-Fill. As you may already know, I'm going after the (2) LMB2As and setting them up in a Parallel configuration as I have yet to find a more powerful motor with such a low amp draw.

I'm also interested in the 2-stage high Performance Domel motor that Jan Sullins was so kind to inform me in detail about. My goal is to attach (2) more high performance vacuums, also set-up in a Parallel configuration, to the exhaust of the (2) in the machine....so now those (2) behind the machine will be in Series with the (2) in the machine from what I understand.

Anyway, GREAT STUFF Jaime!:)

Thanks!;)
