why does the greatest wand de jour in the history of the world need choked down to hell and cut air leaks in glide to run without leaving more dirty water behind than a Ti or any number of top preforming wands ?
and choke down sum-mo not be a man killer to run too...
?(the biggest reason some guys are trying to off theirs?? )

Mike , not starting a argument with a moron. There is no attic in a prochem ti wand. The design is time less. There are no opening on the sides. A set up ti wand will out clean any( dev or tony) wand any day, thats a fact.

I used the 14" SSti a few weeks ago, and noticed it was much shorter than the prochem ti. It cleaned really well, but it would've wore me out just like the mach15 did, due to it being shorter.

like prison sex, you'd gotten use to it.

I used the SS12 for quite some time. With a Glide you can still stand straight up, you just can push it out those last 3 or 4 inches

True

but I think it was more like 8-10inches due to how far I was bending over to get a full reach

Could you ever clean without a window again?

Sapphire UP and RV Shear Dry owners too, could you clean with an opaque tool again?



No f'n way.

I'd trade off the swivel for something as little as the chance to punch Marty in the the throat or a 8x10 glossy of Ladwigs on his Indian (with nuthighs) but the window and all of it's advantages keeps me i the Premium 1%r category..
As a 9 month Dev 14' owner..............no.

After thousands of hours on the high heat Butler the solution hoses on my Dev 14 failed all of the sudden. Had to break the Mach 12 out of the moth balls while I wait for replacements.

Things I missed ranked in order:

1. Swivel
2. Cleaning Performance
3. Round Glide
4. Window
5. 14" Path

The Mach 12 sure is light, but coming back from a Devastator makes you realize it's a bit of a stinker. The flat glide is not good. And it's amazing how much you come to depend on the swivel, even if it's just bending an inch here or there to hit edges and angles.

I was using my mach 12 today on some office carpet similar to what you have in the picture. It in no way compares to the Devastator but I actually like the flat glide. It gives quite a bite to the carpet. Makes it a little harder to push but I feel it extracts very well on short pile carpet.

I used my window last night. Had a house that was so bad I kept having to do wet passes until the water came out clear. This has been my week for crime scene quality jobs. I should have broke out the Trex but I didn't feel like going out to the van and hauling it up the stairs. So, in closing, last evening, I was happy I had a window.
