Guys,

Can we please get back to the original questions on the post?

I understand you guys are joking, but that's not what this thread was intended for.
Most threads end this way. Ok I used a portable machine till I wanted to become a professional carpet cleaning company. No comparison. Looks more impressive and makes customers feel like they are paying for a complete job not a store rental job. But if your only doing jobs where no one sees you get a uniteith a 500 psi pump and at least 2 three stage vacs.

I made a serious post. I'm asking for help in choosing equipment. How about you make a separate stoners thread?
You got all the free advise yar gunna get and fantastic advise at that sonny boy. Get some thicker skin and a sense of humor or you will certainly FAIL in this biz.;)

Our budge is 5k at the moment.
We will be using a van.

Thanks for all the red x's :)

With that kind of budget the best portable is the https://interlinksupply.com/salestools/nautilus.php

They have different options for carpet, tile & grout, heat/no heat. @Scott W is a the guy to tap for info on these machines.

I think the biggest problem you're going to run into with any portable is the weight. None of them are exactly light.

Wow I got more red x's in 24 hours then I have accumulated being a member here for 3 years :D

So what are you guys disagreeing with, the Nautilus isn't the best portable on the planet or Scott isn't a walking encyclopedia? :p
