Forum Title: Advice appreciated
Hello all, Here's a quick history of my situation...I know a person that has some pull with a property management company and they have awarded me 6-8 jobs a week. Just with in this company there's a strong potential for the jobs to double over the course of the next year. I'm going to need to start in about 2 months but I'm not ready. I have a lot to learn and I still need to pick my equipment. I plan to get a portable and a Rotovac powerwand. My mind is relatively set on the Rotovac but I'm not sure on the portable. From what I've read I'm thinking about a Recoil 3. Is there a better set up in the 5 to 6 thousand dollar range? If anyone has used either of these, I'd appreciate hearing the pros and cons about either the Rotovac or the Recoil 3. I've read every post on this website which has led me to lean towards the above mentioned items. My main concern is many of these posts were almost two years old and there could be common knowledge about these products that's more recent. Thanks for taking the time to offer any help. If the stuff I'm considering is pure junk, please let me know. Aaron

Hi Aaron, The Recoil offers more airflow that any other electric portable and is light but durable. Its power will allow it to be left on the van or elsewhere outside the premises being cleaned which will not only make things more comfortable for you and any other occupants but will avoid the hot, damp exhaust (together with associated smells) being vented into the work area. The Rotovac will team up well with this machine but I would urge you to also spend some time with a conventional wand as this will help you develop a 'feel' for carpets and how they are best cleaned.

Hey John, Thanks for the reply. Things changed a little bit since I posted that. I ended up getting a van yesterday and I'm pretty sure I'm going to go with a Blueline Bluewave. ( I think that's what it's called). It's used but still in good shape. Has 1400 hours on it but I think it's the best I can do for what I want to spend. Now I just need to learn how to use it.

Many Thanks to JB for that recommendation. Here is a testimonial just received moments ago: Finally was able to take machine out of service for a day and change dump valve; Been running it nite and day doing a 25 story condo building; Man that thing is awesome; we have done 1200 condos straight; not even a hick up. I got three shifts working this machine; My guys say it is great to have such a powerful portable; (Extreme CFM's) One of my guys use to work for S/S using a truck mount; he said this machine set up I have is as good as any he ever operated.
