    The 1200 psi models are good for tiles but lack the vacuum power for carpets.

    You are right about that. They didn't tell me that. Need to figure out what to do with it...kind of worthless.

    Good for small tile jobs in condos you can't reach with the TM. A little frustrating bealcause you go through the cleaning solution so fast at 1200 psi. A autofill/pumpout would help. Can use with a tile spinner.

    In the last week I've not made less than 125 an hour and as much as 200 an hour running a porty. Dick Richard I can see where your coming from. With nothing but one story sod houses and dug outs as well as the double wides for the wealthy in Kansass, there's no nèed. Do you fertilize the "carpets" as an add on or is that an extra?

    Look how tiny that vehicle looks compared to the house.
    Can't you afford a decent size van?

    Today my first 2 jobs were $400 each done with a TM. My next one was $250 done with a portable and my last one was $150 done with a portable. How many of you guys are willing to turn up your nose at $400 for 2.5 hours work?

    Long after the money is counted a man still has to sleep at night.
    If it means using a portable, I'll pass. Money ain't everything. :errf:

    I bet he is actually very smart!
    In a city with a lot of highrises, limited parking and companies not willing to use a portable-- he could make a lot of money.
    to survive, you need to adapt to your environment-- the dodo bird couldn't adapt- so it became extinct.

    My guy would like to get more portable jobs because those customers usually tip very good and his total commission is very impressive---
