    Its called psychometric profiling, I've had to take more than a few.

    We used to use them more for identifying stress response in personnel, ie my P.A's stress response was opposite to mine so she would often misinterpret what I meant and vice versa

    A rideable ZIPPER so you can drive while cleaning. Joy stick steering like the Rover.

    A spotter dispenser built onto a wand with a trigger so that I don't have to set my wand down and hunt for my spotter bottles every time I run across a spot.

    A de-foamer canister attached to the wand, so you don't have to put the wand down to go get the de-foamer. Just open the valve and it sucks the liquid through the hose.

    I made a goofy looking one that actually worked. It was just way too big because Home depot didn't have the right size pipe I needed to look half decent

    The same excellent SS upholstery pro + the following:
    1. A head that is more narrowly designed so that it can reach under cushions. (In that regard both PMF and Shear dry are better).
    2. Upper vacuum slot closer to edge, so that we can get closer to fabric edges.
    3. A vacuum slot that will fit over and allow for better cleaning of piping. (PMF is great).
    4. A spray head in a recessed area on top of the tool (separate trigger), that will allow one to mist fabric when needed.
    5. The ability to lock the trigger lock (when cleaning in tight areas sometime it lock itself in the On position).
    6. A better metal trigger that is not sharp, does not easily band and if they still choose to use that cheap rubber piece at the end of the trigger, make it more durable and glue it well so it actually sticks.
    It will make an already excellent tool into a legend :clap:

    I was going to build one...had everything going towards a first build but then I was not allowed to weld anymore so I tossed it all out...

    a sliding plate that your vacuum and solution reel can set on that you can pull out of the back of the van and pivot the reels in any direction you want towards the house ...I think that it would make setups and rolling everything back so much easier.....

    I've used them before. maintaining hydration is important to avoiding muscle cramps.

    I've always thought that a vacuum with a good black light on the head to spot pet stains would help out a lot.

    Nice idea

    I'd like to see incorporated in that a washing device that automatically washes the hoses when you roll them back into the van with the hoses on a motorised reel.
