AZ, for me it has absolutely nothing to do with what particular Ametek motor was chosen, but actual power is at the wand does.... Because great results and speed of those results affect my bottom end.
I hear you. But if my corvette is 400 hp at the rear wheels, and yours is 390. Anyone can argue ones got more then the other. But both are pretty darn equal.AZ, for me it has absolutely nothing to do with what particular Ametek motor was chosen, but actual power is at the wand does....

ExactlyI have a 2000 watt sub woofer amp.....
I have a 1000 watt sub woofer amp.....
Yea but your 2000 watt amp is at 20% THD
Yea but your 1000 watt amp uses 18 gauge wire
I have a aftermarket 240 amp mechman alternator and extreme power battery. my amp rated for 900 running RMS atMy 2000 watt peak sub amp is doing 200 watts rms. The other guys 600 watt amp is doing 450 watts rms.
You know what mean. If your using 0 gauge but your alternator is 70 amps....it goes on and on.
Nothing better than the guy with the iron maiden t-shirt hanging out with his buddy in the AC DC shirt head banging away to Metallica's puppet Master.Never underestimate a metalhead... Never!
U.S. Products was sold a while back. Just like the old General floor machine company, they went down hill. Now, I could be wrong, but I doubt that I am....The Jag simply has better capabilities and that's why I would go with that. Plus Ed is more in tune to the needs of professional carpet cleaners as opposed to the newish owners of U.S. Products now. But I have to say my cobras lasted and lasted. Outstanding heat ALL the time too. Just like a Timex, it takes a lickin' and keeps on tickin'.Just curious, asked out of respect. Why would you now choose the Jag? I’ve never used a s US Products equipment so am curious.
Lol Ed. LX motors don’t draw 18 amps. In series they Have more water lift and 225-250 CFM over the 8.4s. The balanced combination of water lift and cfm and size is what makes these motors a better choice for extraction equipment. However, manufacturers that can’t get LX motors want to down play their performance. I understand they’re dilemma.I must clarify a couple of mentions above even though I really did not want to join in on this "situation" out of respect for another.
First, I agree that both the 6.6 and the 8.4 vacuum motors make by Ametek are great motors and always have been. That is the very reason why we have used both for so long for our high performance equipment way before interest surged. These motors are much better than the copies made in Turkey, Italy, China, in our opinion.
One of the most important aspects in developing a "powerful vacuum motor" machine however, is also to seriously consider the Amperage draw for the operator. After all, the operator does not want to trip breakers, run up and down steps, because they would much rather be able to complete the job. Therefore, IMHO, a manufacturer has to be under maximum amps on a 120v circuit taking into consideration other additional operating components within the machine(main pump; pump out; etc). From here, the manufacturer has to concentrate on the operating design which becomes extremely important in minimal loss while maintaining high performance.
Ametek has the most technical testing equipment we have ever seen or witnessed on our visits and I have seen and have been in correspondence on many occasions that the standard 8.4 motors are more without a doubt, more powerful than the standard 6.6 and that is why we moved up to them. However, as we understand through Ametek information/communication the (122628-00/one stage) 6.6 motors mentioned above as special motors draw just under 18 amps and still have less water lift than the standard (two stage) 8.4. The CFM's of those 6.6 are slightly more however, in our opinion not worth the tripping of circuits. Never forget, "Mother-Watts" will only provide so much and that's it. Any motor stronger than a 8.4 has to demand greater amp draw period and will borderline and be susceptible to tripping.
Lastly, the earlier reference to the "Wet-Dry" senerio admittedly was not a good one. The cost difference between the large capacity and the smaller one using the same vac motor naturally does not mean the larger one is stronger more powerful. The cost difference is the tank, casters, and even perhaps the other items included. I doubt the manufacturer was not being honest.
In conclusion, I wish any manufacturer the best and hope they keep building their equipment different than ours because that is ultimately what separates all others and offers greater choices for much greater advantages and truer reasons.
MERRY CHRISTMAS to all;
