I've spent thousands on battery powered sprayers and they've all died on me. Even the plug in one died on me.
NormallyI use my Hydroforce. But for upholstery, and back up, I've gotten this. Way cheaper, 3 year warranty. Cant' beat it.
They're also on sale right now for $80!

For those of us who do not have a TM and use portables, can a worx still be used? I am currently using a battery sprayer on wheels, cost about $150, but they usually only last me a few months, although I do not do carpet all the time, and there are times when I do not flush with fresh water, the battery just shuts off so been looking for a sprayer myself and heard of the Worx. Ty!

Friend of my got Petra, I can ask him for a feedback. He showed it to me at Interlink appreciation day about 2 months ago. It should be enough time to know how it works ...
Personally, I don't care about electric sprayers, if I opted for one, it would be a 2 quarts hand pump, so I don't have to pump it while working on upholstery and trying to get fine mist...

How long have you had yours, how do you like it and what are you customizing on it
I haven’t used it yet. I’ve only had it a couple weeks. I’m putting new softer hose and new plumbing. I don’t like the way the hoses are sealed. I’m also making it a inches instead of metric

Damn! You've spent thousands on powered sprayers? How are you using them? I'm still in the hundred$ in pump up sprayers and a hydroforce. I've been wanting a powered sprayer for a while. I use a pump up sprayer as of now.

I spent all that money on battery powered sprayers that are common in our industry. 3 were battery operated, one was even a plug in. They all fail don me and ended up in the trash cans as repairing them was too expensive. The Hydraforce is my main tool. But I still prefer to have a battery powered sprayer in my arsenal.

The Worx Sprayer comes with a 3 year warranty. It's a stand alone sprayer. You can use it by itself with a portable, truck mount, even when encaping. I'm totally done with the battery and even electrical plug in sprayers that are marketed to us carpet cleaners.

Pump up sprayers are a waste of time. They also break on me too. I was talking about battery powered sprayers marketed to carpet cleaners. They' expensive prices of crap. IMHO

I also had love hate relationship with my hydro force but always came back to it. I would never go back to any other type, change them every few years.

All these posts and not one person mentioned that how you spray your pre spray has an enormous effect on how much you breath in. I'm not en expert because I don't do carpet every day like some of you. But I do have a hydro force and several pump/battery sprayers. Using 400+psi and spraying with the wand farther from the carpet like some suggested adds huge amounts of chemical to the air. Less pressure and a bigger tip that dossent make it mist as much is a good idea for anyone using it every day. Go to any carpet cleaning convention or store and all the old guys have lung problems. Not worth it when it's not that difficult to get less of it in the air.

I haven't found one I really like. I love the speed of the hydro force, but I don't use it over 250psi, and even then it fills the air with mist. I need to try some different tips with it. The worx and other battery sprayers held closer to the carpet work well, but I don't like pre mixing a bucket and it's slow. I usually do commercial with no one around so I'll use the hydro force and a respirator usually. Not sure what is do in a house. I like the looks of the one Kevin Bought. Rolling it out might be annoying, but not too bad.
