    Come on man, a AW 29 only gives porty users boners.
    Not much technology to a 1970 design. :winky:

    Do I have enough time to regain the cost at my old age before I die and didn't earn enough to break even. Oh but dead is dead and then no problem . I still have my original wand from 1981 it still shines. jz.

    considering the 12" means your covering 16-17% less each stroke, what is so good about it that justifies being that much slower than a 14"?

    all my wands are 12 inch, whether they are 1.5 or 2 inch diameter. You won't notice any difference from a 14

    If it would improve the portable performance, I would be in on a 1.5 inch devastator.
    I would like to understand how that 1.5 - 12 inch wand would improve performance with the Butler.
    Better for dual wanders?
    Would be nice to play around with it in August at the MF.

    Bob, it seems as if airflow would go down, but vacuum would increase, to compensate. Correct me if I’m wrong.

    I’ve posted a couple of times about using a 6” Gecko tile wand instead of a WaterClaw and I think it is analogous to using a Butler with the 12”.
    If I had the extra money I’d try it out with my CFX.

    My issue is with two guys on a truck, one goes pre vacuums the other sets up and pre sprays!

    The vacuum guy crbs!

    Then
    Pre
    Spray guy steams!

    Unless there’s a lot of area to be cleaned dual setups doest look like a option for the most part!

    I can do it but don’t!
