Didn't know how spoiled I am with my "Ergo" wand.

    I friend of mine bought a standard 2 inch glided wand used.

    Wanted me to clean it up and use for a day to test it for him.

    Cleaned 12 areas of carpet with it. Wand did a great job, but it did a job on me.

    My shoulder felt like I went 12 rounds.

    I have the SS version of this wand. If you have any shoulder problems, demo one for the day. You will feel a big difference.

    I've never cleaned with one of those but it sure looks odd.
    Too radical with the pressure gun, I'm not sure if I could get used to it.

    I used the one that Blueline had out. It was easy to get used to. It was a 2" tube with 14" slot, too big for my TM now

    You should have saved your body and simply told him what he wanted to hear

    Isn't that design something that SS uses?

    Hate that pistol valve.

    Glad it works for you and I am not saying it doesn't.

    The only way to push that wand is the space between your thumb and hand which is likely to put a tremendous pressure and wear on the thumb joint. A stiff glove I suppose will help, somewhat. Even in the video you can see a lot of up and down movement of the wrist. And if you push with the assist handle, it will likely do a number on your back.

    It is all going to be plenty of unhealthy repetitious movements. Just choose your poison.
