    It looks the same. Same size motor, blower and pump.

    compared to a porty (even a glorified one marketed as a ETM) you'll think you died and went to heaven .
    Stay up with maintenance (not difficult or expensive for any neophyte with a Crescent wrench and grease gun)
    contingent on not being a complete moron that can't change a lite bulb
    you'll get years of service out of it

    Heat will be more than adequate with normal flow carpet tools and common duty cycles

    Hose runs same if normal (150ft and less)


    won't pretend to know which of the two TMs is better.
    But know both are solid reputable manufactures that have building TMs for a long time .
    I'd figure they'd both be pretty equal and neither head or shoulders above the other in performance, reliability and longevity

    I think Ron's (Cleanworks) advise is solid when suggesting if you have a good relationship with the HM disty, not a bad thing to go with them.

    Congrats either way .
    the few thousand more you had to spend will be more than made in productivity over the life of the machine compared to a plastic pretend TM

    Ive ran the rage for 2.5 years. It kills a blazer but I have no experience with a 318. I’ve had zero problems with the rage. I have two friends locally that are running rages and they love them too.

    Before comparing candidates for an ETM unit, one has to really consider if an ETM is the right choice for their operation.

    If that is the case, then a Escape is a solid candidate, but it is what it is.

    A custom Franken-ETM build is not for the light-hearted, especially as a part-time machine.

    They are a lot of work to set-up with so many separate components, and demand a lot of tweaking to dial them in.

    Sure there are guys running them successfully, but most seem to be a niche breed of tinkerers who are running them very frequently.

    You really have to be dedicated to such a setup, not for "the occasions that I have a home".

    Sounds like you would be better off with a gently used slide-in.

    Try to find it a steady diet of commercial work and restaurants where you can pull right up, and forget about the gas costs.

    Little operating cost difference over the long haul.

    I wonder as California slides farther and farther into eco-madness, if before long all you can run will be electric machines.

    prob'ly a ways to go before that.
    more stringent CARB standards perhaps
    But not so draconian manufactures can't find a way to comply.
    just too much power equipment in use everyday where battery power isn't practical option

    yes but it took 65,000,000 years to create all those fossil fuels, which we will deplete in about 300

    either way were all fucked.. just roll some COAL!

    Great progress Sky.
    Asking for information and then actually listening to the experts on here is impressive.

    Your future success is dependent upon the ability to get customers, develop some cheerleaders, and build repeat customers (not saving $3-5k on startup equip). If you are successful you will learn the one thing that is in shortest supply in the business is YOUR TIME and FOCUS.

    Step up and get a TM you will not regret it. Get the biggest you can afford.

    The BIGGEST is not always the BEST!

    A truckmount, either an ETM , or a truckmount, does not have to be the BIGGEST, or the LOUDEST, to be the BEST.

    A machine tailored to your needs will give you years of machine--stress-free cleaning

    I've always found the biggest WAS the best. Those that stated differently we're running small wimpy machines or portables. They had never owned the biggest or baddest they could afford.

    The biggest usually don't have to run as hard and generally built with better components that are built to last. I've never felt regret for buying the biggest.

    However I usually regret trying to save a buck. Cheap is sure attractive but generally bites me in the ass. :errf:

    I agree with Taco, to a point.
    The V was too big.
