    Having a stair tool that relieves any strain on the back is the most important tool for a carpet cleaner. So I'm gonna keep buying until I find it. I've only used this tool once, and it wasn't impressive. I'm gonna adjust the handle on top and see if that was the cause, and I looked at the opening on the head and it seems like it's too far open. I'm gonna try to pinch it together to close it a little bit, and see how well it performs

    The newer UT 40's look like the head is closer to a 90degree angle with 2jets mounted on it. This one is more of a 45degree with just a single jet, but it has the hydrahoe trigger valve, which I love. I think those things are almost bullet proof

    Matt, I have been using the unSaigerized pmf swivel tool for residential lately. I like the way it cleans, especially over the bullnose. The risers I usually just cuff and be done unless there is obvious soiling. For commercial where I have a lot of stairs, I use a long handled pmf straight stair tool. It lets me stand upright until I get to the bottom 2 steps. 36 inch handle. 10 inch head.

    Yeah, I tried the pmf swivel and hated it. I’m sure I’ll get familiar with this one

    I didn't like it either...hated it actually, then I watched Saiger's Aaron using it and now I use it like he does. I like it now. Very efficient and the size is good for me...until the bottom couple of steps.

    Used it for years...I think it use to come with the purchase of a new truck mount from HydraMaster. Did the job.

    On those cramped apartments where the handle of the wand is hitting the ceiling, or the stairs are spiral or turning right or left, you'll find that the wand is too long. Not to mention those stair cases where the risers need to be HWE. I've owned and used 5 different stair tools, and haven't found the perfect match yet. I'm quite frustrated, because my back gets punished. My shoulder and forearm got punished when I was cleaning the stairs with my normal wand in my early years, so keep that in mind

    98% of the homes I’m in have carpeted stairs. As your business builds, the more you will see.

    Having no stairs reduces accidents.

    Good cushioning when your butt is bouncing down slippery uncarpeted steps.
