Well I got my van back yesterday with my brand new TM installed.
They did a great job. got my soft water tank in there as well to use when filling my
fresh water tank.
The installer was very knowledgeable and a great guy as well. We ran the machine and he took his time to go over everything with me. Couldn't have had a better experience.
Now i can't wait to clean with it.
Gotta say I was very happy with my Escape ETM and the suction it had but this machine is most definitely better.

I already know i'm gonna love it.
I do however realize that there will be more maintenance involved as compared to a portable or the ETM I had.

But i bought it new and it's only gonna serve me as well as i take care of the thing which I will, I just dropped 16 grand so you can bet i'll be taking very good care of it

Well I did my first job with the new TM this morning. It was such a pleasure. No water hose to hook up as i just used my fresh water tank that was pre filled at home. no power cords to run and no propane heater to light.

Not that those things took that long anyway but not having to do it at set was nice, and it goes with out say that breakdown was that much easier as well.

machine worked great suction wise, great heat, only had to run 100 foot of hose which is most of my jobs anyway with the occasional 120 to 150 foot runs.

I do notice a difference in suction over the Escape LX. The TM is better.
Was it like night and day difference, did I say holly cow this thing blows the escape away on suction. No I did not. But there is a definite noticeable difference no doubt. I'm happy.

Biggest thing for me is ease of use, and the time savings on set up and break down. No more trips to uhaul to buy propane either for the little giant heater.

jobs I turned down in the past I will no longer turn down. Like 3rd floor condos for example, it was just to much of a PITA with water hose, electric cords in addition to vac and solution lines however no getting around them anyway.

Distance to was a factor, i'll go 200 feet if i have to with the new TM and feel good about it.
Not so much with the escape LX although I know some do it
