View attachment 80390View attachment 80391Got this 12 inch Hild , weight is 48lbs kinda light but with Bonnetpro chems it's done a super job the 2 times I used it . 1/3 hp . Is was a great deal for $50 .
OMG!!! I had the same, exact Hild floor machine. Same color too. I got it for free from my first carpet cleaning company that I worked for in 1979. Thing looked 100 years old then. I ended up selling it 10 years later. Wish I kept it. Very cool, Joe. No backwards pun intended. LOL.

Agree with OCV . Those older small machines are getting more rare .
Newer ones are all sheet metal or plastic bases . That cast base makes it a little heavier even with a 1/3 hp. motor and transfers more weight to your driver, pad , bonnet . Have a similar Dart machine that will keep up with anything new . Nice buy Joe !!
All the Best , Ed

Hi Paul. There is nothing in it that should be an issue at higher temps.
Im also working on a powdered low dilution pre spray.

I am so impressed with this new world ( to me ) of bonnet cleaning.
Did a large rental ( upstairs apt. )...Truck mount cleaning by me 4 months ago( yes the carpet should have been replaced 15 years ago )..LOL...but the owner ( who I have cleaned for for 25 years ) said...Just one more cleaning...I used Rocket, horse hair pad, then the bonnets ( 3 of them )....The owner stopped by before I used the bonnets and said...WOW...Dan this looks so good...How come.

I told him I was not even done, and this was a restoration step, and would cost $100 more than last time...He said...Well...It's worth it...Thanks.

Thanks to all that turned me on to BonnetPro.

Thank you for trying my products. Horse hair pad?
So you charged a $100 more, was your total job time less?

I ordered pads from you that remind me of what we used to call horse hair, kinda rough.

4 months prior, I had truck mounted this large rental upstairs apt....bad shape, carpet long over due to be ripped out...2hrs/2 tech/$230.00...

2 days ago, me alone, bonnet only( bear getting the 175 up those winding stair cases...2hrs/1 tech ( me )/$330.00....Owner came in and saw it after I had used the pad only...Thought i was done and it looked better than I have ever made it look in the past.

Told him, I still had more to do, and this was a new approach, called " restoration cleaning )...and if it worked I would charge $100 more for it, but he would not have to rip the carpet in the near future, he was happy.
