My thoughts are...2 vacuum slots, maybe about 10in. wide ea., that's 20in.(seems like you might need a powerful T.M.?)
5 TO 7 JETS? (LOTS OF WATER?).
Just thinking.
And your thoughts?
AL;)

I have had a zipper 13" for 3 years
I run 12 flowthat is about 1 1/2 gpm
I have a 4.5 blower with a 33 hp engine...
Rarely do dry strokes .....
I would say zipper gets about 50% faster dry times than a wand..
I previously used both prochems 14" and 12 "
I would say the bonzer has the same vac power...
Doesnt make sense but ask other owners.....

Either a Bonzer or a Zipper is on my radar for 2017, adding a few more commercial jobs is part of the business plan. :)

Leave them on your radar cause in a few months the next great tool will probably hit the market. I'm waiting for @RobAllen to make the perfect 'all in one' space-age tool for carpet cleaners. I'm sure he is already building it in his mind.... He may even throw in a second one free... just add shipping.

I have the same zipper set up the same way. The ease of operation in wide open areas of this tool is crazy. Can't speak on the bonzer because I've never used one in a real-time situation. only demo. One thing I can say is that I will never be without a zipper ever again. Amazing tool

I think the Bonzer and Zipper are awesome looking tools, but I have never used either of them. I also was thinking of purchasing the Bonzer. For the folks that have them or have used them, are they more for commercial carpets like restaurants, etc. and work best when their is no furniture in the rooms? Just looking at them, it doesn't seem like they are ideal for every day residential carpet cleaning where you have to go around furniture and/or tight spots?

I've been looking at those two too. The zipper looks like it is built better. I may purchase one this month. :)

They both were made for commercial cleaning. The Bonzer is more maneuverable in homes.

I just cleaned hotel..still made almost 100$ hour at 10$ room.
Zipper is about half the labor on large jobs

I was trying to decide between the Bonzer and the Zipper a month ago, and wound up going with the Zipper. A little heavy and big in some tight spaces, but I'm still so glad I took the plunge. I can't believe that I wasted so many years with just a wand!

I've used it in homes. Also used Zippers in homes. They both clean well. Bonzer has edge on dry times. Also much easier to use no matter how many steps you take. Most who own Zipper's say you need 10-12 steps walking or it will wear you out with its weight. The Bonzer is very simple and nimble in homes. Just remember that. If your doing very large homes and lots empties then either is ok. If furnished and moderate homes you really only have one choice.

In the beginning I used my zipper in homes quite a bit. I do not anymore. (except tight knit Berber ) Not because it's too hard but because other tools do much better. If you have a dirty residential leave the zipper and the bronzer on the truck and grab the rotary. Plain and simple. For commercial hwe The zipper cannot be beat period.
