Hello all i currently have my own cleaning business now for 1/2 years im located in cambridge ontario Canada the reason why i came to this forum to get some insight on some prices versus shopping here in canada.

Currently im looking to do the following with this business, Cleaning carpets, Cleaning grout graffiti all the people around this area are over charging reason why i wanna get into the market and be the under dog :)

Currently i was looking at the rotovac or the Terminator 1200 some guy in my city is selling his Terminator 1200 fully enclosed trailer with chemicals for 12000!!!! yes 12000....

Any suggestions be really good i love to make the first purchase the right one..

Looking for a heated unit, will this work on portable units? Hydro-Force SX-15 Hard Surface Cleaning Tool or anything else im in need of 1200psi i think

Hello guys currently i got an offer for 2700 RotoVac 360i Business Start-up Package comes with everything the link is here

i was thinking to offer 2500 there is a seller here in canada is selling a brand new unit for 4500.... i mean 2000 difference to me is a huge amount but he said he can ship for more then 400.00


But how well would 100psi clean grout lol i think that is not enough you need atleast 1200psi i rather invest my money into something i can do about anything really the Terminator 1200 i should buy but cannot find nothing close to what i need...

From your speech patterns, and I think Eyeball picked up on this too, I'm wondering if English is your first language. You'll have to forgive a little cynicism. We quite often get spammer hacks on here, and their posts look much like yours. Your post sentences are fragmented and very hard to read/understand. Think you could clean that up a bit for us?

Would love a recommendation first before i start to look... Can the m5 with attachments clean grout really well? or even the something you guys can recommend to me thanks.

Sorry been really tired lately lol sorry for the poor english

I work 7 days a week i currently do 12 residential customers 3 restaurants, i have been in business for 1 1/2 years and would love to do something different with my business on top of what i currently do.


Keep in mind i live in canada and would require to pick this stuff up or i could shop in canada but i would be paying 50% more!!

M5 not so hot for tile. There's a doohickey, which is a technical term with a very specific meaning, that you can buy from several companies like Mytee and Interlink Supply that will remedy that. Run water to it, and out comes 1500 psi. Quite the dandy little doohickey, if you ask me. Great for tile and grout. Throw in a heater, and you're SET.

Joseph, You sure it's coming out at 1500 psi? I thought it was only 1000 psi.

I could be wrong. I thought I saw something that did 1500, but it's been awhile. If that's the case, and you're only getting 1k out of it, and the porty will be for T&G only, you can get an M-12 and do the same thing.

Yeah I'm just joshing you man. Aerotechs are like $80,000+. I don't even know anything about portables. You should probably listen to what Frank DiGi said.

I'd skip mytee and look at presurewashersdirect.com way more for your money.
But it does not suck the water up only cleans it... that wont serve my purpose for cleaning carpets lol

To everyone regarding this machine Sanitaire Electrolux SC6080 currently on ebay for 1400 comes with wand hoses and hand attachment!

http://www.govacuum.com
Promotions: ($130.00)
Shipping: $119.95
Taxes: $0.00
Total: $1,289.90

Could i use this machine with the rotovac?


Also i no longer need a machine that can clean grout and tile i will just use my high and low brushes on my karcher machine that i only paid 100,00 for it and use a squeegee and shop vac .

OK here is my budget i would love to buy something for about 4,000 wish i could afford truck mount sense i have a cargo trailer would be perfect for this i checked used and its about half the costs but really its old junk... What units offers steam so i can advertise steam i rather make the best investment and the unit lasts me years instead breaking down on me!
