    Good thing I brought help as this anal retentive OO method would have had me there until 10 pm tonight..


    Packed a Kirby bag, trimmed up a pound of loose Berber yarns, red pad slow rinse, fan dry..

    Looks like you gave them a good job.

    Is that a 1.5" or 2" Devastator wand?

    If there was a 1.5 Devastator

    If I wanted a 1.5, it would only be a tile wand

    Who cares what wand he was using! I'm more concerned about how he used a red pad and a kirby. I was thinking he'd bring out the big bad Orek and a crb! He bad mouthed those "heavy" vacuums and the wtf method of using a red pad.

    But truth will have it...I'm just jealous that Mikey made $87/room at a damn motel. Asshole

    Waiting on the 12" head


    Matt's confused, a red pad/175 is very best way to remove oily soil from Berber.


    and the Kirby is a much better edger than the Oreck.



    I've never said other wise.

    Mike,
    Just curious- Why scrub with the red pad instead of a CRB?

    because a 100 pound machine and a red fiber pad works much better on flat weave Berber covered in black top slurry, even an idiot like Marty knows that.

    Well, in that case the Alabama wonder ain't what you claim.

    I never used a red pad or any other of the scrubbing pads. Mostly residential. Would it be faster or slower than a CRB?
