Hey everyone I'm new to the forum. I've been offered Nautilus Mx3-200h possibly with a rotovac powerwand. What I want to know is if this machine is powerful enough for small commercial work. I have a varió oscillator and a 175 to help agitate.
what about a

Hi Sir, I have the 5.7” 2 stage vac motor on machine, do you think anyone sell the “manifold” for the 8.4” vac motor? Not sure if this is the word to describe, and is it possible to change it from 5.7”-8.4”?thanks!

What cleaning agent should I use. I tried an encap solution but it still looks dirty.
The Nautilus is meant for hot water extraction cleaning agents. Encapsulation products would normally use different equipment.

The results depend upon only in a rather small part of your equipment and chemicals. The process and your won knowledge, training and skill play a much larger role.

The best chemical for a job depends mostly on the type of soils you want to remove and the fiber you are cleaning. Most commercial carpet (56% according to latest sales volume) is nylon. Olefin is also a large portion. If the soil is largely particle soil liked tracked in grit, sand, etc. I would use Traffic Slam. If the soil is oily and greasy, then try Flex Powder with Citrus Solv.

Don't overlook the importance of thorough vacuuming, hot water, agitation, dwell time and additional extraction passes.
