    Hey guys.. I'm new to all of this so of course in need of a little help! What portable to get? I currently work full but looking to get into cleaning mainly residential property on the side for now. I'm 25 and very ambitious I plan to expand into a full service business. I'm currently torn.. I know you get what you pay for and I was sold on the mytee 2002cs contractor special $1699 comes with a wand ready to go pretty good deal right? 120 psi, hot water, and 3 stage vac. But as I read I'm scared of the 120 psi.. I want to do a professional job and also invest in something I can use down the road! Considering the mytee itd5 I know it's a better machine more options adjustable pressed but would really rather save the extra 1500 dollars for now!! I understand that more psi and more heat is better and cleans faster. But my question is how much.. is the difference worth stretching the budget? Does anyone do much tile work with there carpet machine? I know it wouldn't be an option with the 120 psi any advice is very appreciated!

      You need to start to develop an internet presence asap.

      It takes a little while, so get on it.

      You would be a lot better off with an LTD5 than that Sandia.

      Don't count on many tile jobs
      .
      Different animal and they won't be as frequent as you think.

      LTD is WAY TOO heavy to be anyone's primary bread-n butta unit.

      So you figure, you spend $3500 on the setup and you will be happy with $7500 revenue.

      You'll need to make a lot more than $7500 to make it worth it.

      You will pay yourself for your time spent doing the work.
      You will pay insurance.
      You will drive around to jobs where your vehicle will be using gas and whatever else might be included in amortization.
      You will need to spend on chemicals and other small tools and materials (plastic tabs, Styrofoam, brushes, hoses, buckets, vacuum, rags/towels, and a lot more junk)
      You will spend on your advertisement.
      You will want to pay taxes... I'd think.


      So yeah...shoot for a higher goal than $7500.
