Yes it is the Prochem quad. And yes it is a great wand. One of the best ever. Why? Four reasons. One is it is a cast head. So you get a true meeting with the carpet interface. Second,the wand is 1 3/4" tube and flares out to 2" at the grip. This is an ideal tube size for 90% blowers on the market. Three,4 jets is also a happy medium where most cleaners can adjust their jet sizes up without losing a lot of heat. This improves the flushing power. Lastly,there are more glide styles available for this wand than any other on the market. All in all,the Prochem quad wand is a classic.

I would consider a Ti wand or similar. My Ti wand sprung a leak in the hose and while it was getting fixed I used my old Prochem Quad for a few days and wow, felt like I was using a clunky old dinosaur. It is a good wand but very heavy.

Food for thought, a 5 hour round trip might cost you a lot more than to just have it shipped. Both time and money.

Thanks for the info Richard. That sucks Richard!! Watched my father try and push the wand the other day was funny he hadn't really pushed one in 10 years since he retired. Your probably right about the shipping and going with a titanium or similar.

Really like the TMF Westpak 14. Got to give Rob a call and get a quote on it along with a few things i need!!

I have used alot of wands...alot, and I always go back to the quad...there's nothing out there that feels better...I like the weight of the wand it feels like an actual tool in my hand.

PS I have a PMF TI wand with G glide and 6 jet even-flo if anyone is interested...used 3 times...$500

Hey Richard just your TI leak like mine does since I bought it new it always leaks out the jets I think it catches water in the round cylinders at the base of the wand I have replaced the trigger kit aswell and it still does it, I have the prochem quad aswell I save it for jobs I dont want drops of water everywhere if the place is commercial and has tiles where people could slip and could sue me.
