It really is..in 5-10 years vac motors will be blowing us away I'm sure..just like batteries in power tools are...a lot of doubters on that but at the concrete company I work for(I'd say a valid opinion on if a tool is good or not) we use 90% battery tools now, DeWalt flexvolt and they are amazing...
The electric TM's are coming like it or not. They can and will be efficient and require 5 hp in years to come to do what 20 hp dino does now. It's inevitable.

I know it. The funny part is that there will still be people for 20 plus years who think gas is the only way even once etms are proven..people hate change and fight it most the time.

this may be true ??????

but even if you do run it all on a 5 hp electric motor
you still need 20 amp circiut on a 240 volt.......

i dont see a vacuum powered ETM on 2 -15 amp 120 volt circuits having the power of a TM...in the near future!!!!!

A servo motor with a multi stepper controller only draws 10 amps to produce 5 horse equivalency
A DC induction motor need 15 amps at 120 volts through a speed controller to produce 5/7 horsepower

A DC brush motor spinning at 30000 RPMs has a 2.3 horse equivalency.

frankly positive displacement blower manufacturers laugh at the fact our industry use their blowers for the purpose of just carpet Cleaning!

they will continue to sell them to us because we will continue to buy them!

We need a self producing electricity, I don't know if these things are legal here in North America, if we had something like this then we don't need a stinky gas burning tm. I have watched a video where this guy built a self producing gen up to 100w of power.

I do agree with you but they're not actually legal
fact is they put us a great deal of magnetic field there for making them dangerous when it comes to people with heart monitors are pacemakers it also makes it very dangerous for electronics we all like our cell phones.
that and the fact is that the motors are actually very weak you can stop them with the pinky.
I built a neo magnet generator and the Gauss meter bounces off the wall

the fact is we would also be putting off a level of magnetic pollution that we actually don't understand fully example it could cause harm with bird migration. That was experienced in British Columbia when they were building a large neo magnet at one of the schools there.

There's no controversy behind it's it's just kind of not there yet

Is it possible to combine two giant 6x2" neodymium magnets to one single 6x4" without destroying them? Let's find out!

Exactly

vacuum motors have improved tremendously from the 70s when they were terrible time to move on and look towards the future

Think about it right now you're probably looking at this on a phone!!!

I bought 9 8.4s in boxes never opened for a really really great price...only to find out later on that they're 36 v DC 2 cords models...so they sit on a shelf collecting dust now
Buy power converter that change AC to DC or you can make high breed system where you can have auxiliary battery bank and radiator powered heat exchanger for hot water.
Keep your van running for power.

I am fortunate enough to have what I consider to be the best ETM out there. I say the best because I have been running it now for 20+ years with no problems with it's design. It has very high heat (240,000 btu auto LP), great vacuum even at 150' (twin vac motors), tower design vacuum system so it can easily pick up and go inside if necessary. You can also run the steam line in a couple hundred feet if necessary, or just take the pump module in (PumpTec 207) and use the electric dual chamber Volcano heater.

The APO is absolutely a workhorse requiring almost no attention day after day of cleaning. I can plug it into the job-site or run the on-board 10K genset if power is not available.

I run the 15" Zipper SS with no problem, and it will also run dual wands by adding a second vac system and using the on-board Cat 290 pump.

I also carry 90 gallons of fresh soft water (on-board RV water softener).

All this is inside an Astro van with beefed up suspension.

Don't they already have regenerative blowers and multi stage centrifugal blowers that are crazy powerful compared to the carpet industry equivalent but just too costly currently? I think even Claw pumps(almost the same thing but have a claw shape interior) Are superior in just about every way.

Roots blower designs were made in like the late 1800s. Super dated.
