    Why can't you edge with a Truck Mount hose cuff?

    you can
    seems an inefficient waste though to use a $20K+ gas powered machine to do the job of a $49 vac ....especially and in particular if/when running two man crew

    When I don't have a Vac with an edger I usually just do a lap around the room with my 2". l do this just before I extract. Prespray and crb work had already been done so no need to pull out the hoses. That being said, I prefer my vacuum to have an edger. It's just more convient to knock it out at the same time as vacuuming.

    Is my life so boring I'm actually having this conversation?

    I've heard a ton of raving about shark vacuums on here. I need a new machine for my house. Which shark do you guys recommend?

    They all say "Lift Away" on them somewhere, but only get the one that allows the tank to lift off and make the unit become, essentially, a canister vac. You can vacuum under beds and it tight places withit in this mode.

    That would mean to a lot of people that they are dead.

    if you don't value your actual time vacuuming then you'll be a great oreck owner. good option for a consumer who doesn't factor time in their care of carpet, or small offices and apartments dwellers. had a dozen in my hand and it's like using a 1600psi electric pressure washer versus a 2500+ gas powered unit. can you clean a slimy patio for a customer with electric? sure, if you leave your watch in the truck.

    It's only light when you put a new bag in it.

    They are great for stairs too.

    We're still using our Oreck around the hose. The wife still loves it. But every now and then I need to pull out the Proteam and edge the German Shepherd hair off the wall and corners.
