    I've got 2 Xtreme Xtractors with vac packs I'm wanting to get rid of. Asking $7,000 OBO for both units, I am willing to just sell one as well if the price is right. P/U in Indianapolis. One of the sets is practically brand new. FB_IMG_1505142151892.jpg FB_IMG_1505142155532.jpg FB_IMG_1505142162142.jpg

    Ok, better question.....
    When would you use it?
    And how can I buy it and make a profit off of it?

    We prefer the motorized extraction tools. While they are pricy, they project the PRO image and last forever.

    Saving pad. It is more efficient and with the vac pack you don't need to run a TM.

    How often do you get jobs where you can justify weighted extraction? Pretty rarely for us and usually just in the bedrooms for a 300sf or so

    Hard to spend 10k on some fancy extraction tool and then everyone is chirping in the homeowners ear to pull the pad and it's just a huge headache

    Sounds like a you problem. We never had any problem using this tool on 95% of our losses and most of the time adjusters and homeowners appreciated that we could save the pad. It's more efficient and more effective than a water claw type tool, do the research before you make an ass of yourself. We got out of doing water about a year and a half ago to focus on our core services and I'm just trying to get rid of some great equipment. Troll on dude.

    We save the pad most of the time. But we have basement here. Which means you're easily drying 6, 8 1200 sq/ft or more.

    We have (7) Rover's. Hate buying them but you have to have them when saving pad.

    No troll, just asking questions and looking out for others on here

    I think there are too many tools sold to business owners that don't return a profit

    We do mostly water and I would never buy a fancy extractor tool

    Very rare in this day and age to have enough carpet where it's worth trying to dry and save. Usually cheaper to just remove and replace

    All depends on what kind of jobs you're doing. My condo complex has over 8000 sqft of carpet over pad in the hallways and we have many similar wood framed buildings in our local area. I don't do large WD jobs anymore but I see where that can come in handy. Same for the rover tools.

    Sounds like Chavez is in the sweet spot for drying and not demo.

    We can never save hardwoods and 80% of homes here have wood in common glued on slab and carpet or rugs in bedrooms

    Flooring here is almost always a tear out

    That's odd.

    We save more than 90% of water damaged carpets. The one's we don't are from staining or delaminaton. All sewage or cat 3 are disposed of.

    Kevin Pearson in Texas would use the Phoenix X vac pack and say you don't have to have a separate extractor or TM to use the tool.. A plus when doing late night and early morning WD extraction..

    I have a rover and a flood king..

    That's a good price it's listed at.. A lot cheaper than buying it new..

    Our market is just soooooo trendy on the wood. It's in the kitchens, bathrooms, closets, everywhere

    When we do have carpet that can be dried in place, the homeowners push so hard to pitch it and usually just say they want it pulled and don't care if insurance pays for new or not

    Plus the deductibles at 1% which means 5-10k so they tend to put off mitigation on small/mid size jobs so you don't get there early enough to save materials

    They try to do stuff on their own and only call for help once it goes south

    We definately Have a weird market here

    I hate tearing it out. Hauling wet carpet, pad, drywall out of basement is the worst. We will dry walls and subfloor on main and second floors but that much work is a real bitch.

    I can extract and place equipment with the best of them. You want to see an old man, after 5-6 trips up and back I can no long deny it.

    I can't keep up with the boys anymore. :errf:

    Looks like good work.

    However that would have been a small mold job here. Removal under containment, with neg air and critical barriers.
