    Now that these are open for public purchase, I'm thinking these are bad looking tools!

    Anyone tried it?

    Absolutely impressed with it. I had the chance to test it in all the different TM's that where there
    I can tell you now this wand leaves the carpets ready to dry in less than an hour at 500 psi

    I was also impressed with the T rex. The new head that they made is just awesome.

    me too. Johnny. Although Eric (zipper) was nice and respectful to me. I wonder how he would react if bought a wand that for some reason fails and I have to call him to fix it. I would need to get to know him more before I commit to buy his product.

    I've not got a Zippper too. The thing is great on CGD. I really like it a lot actually.

    The zipper is a very high quality built floor tool. Eric did a great job.

    I would only couple it however with a very high performance electric HWE with ETM capabilities, or with a TM capable of 200'.

    That is impressive. I use truck mount equipment that I bought used from a bigger carpet cleaning company. I feel like it works well and my customers always seem to be happy with the purchase. I always have great reviews and repeat customers. My main competitor in my area uses the "Rotovac 360" and she makes it seem like its incredibly better than anything I have. Honestly I don't mind to much because my customers are always happy. However I feel like I may be losing some customers to her because my website (www.deltonaflcarpetcleaning.com). My site does well but her's just downs my type of equipment and I think it might be working to take come of my customers. Anyone know if the Rotovac 360 is that good?
