Can I get the same or better dry times with the d12 as my dang14. I like a slot glide. I am not starting trouble. What matters to me is my customers, dry times are huge.

Probably not

I plan to buy a 1.5 - 12 inch yet this year and hope to have it before Mikey's Fest AZ. I want people to be able to try both 2 inch and 1.5 inch if I am running around with my unit.

And our daughter might be going out on a van a few times. She used to run Greenhorns and Prochem Ti wands back in the day with 2.5 inch hose set ups.

I like being able to let people try all our toys 😊

Just makes cleaning and sharing together more fun

Well your going from 8 flow to 6, and losing 2 inches.

But it has serious bite with dry strokes it won’t be longer.

It’s easier to maneuver in homes.

Still on really large areas you’ll want the bigger wand for production.

I mainly run 14 inch and had the same concerns.

However after direct comparison on the same route it's our consensus that production is just as fast with the Dev 12x1.5 .

Quality of work was better (appearance & drying), and Jon said the ergonomics were better.

It’s only as fast because your old and move faster with a lighter wand hahahahahah

The death of Devastator has begun.
I doubt it lol, I can't keep them in stock now. I am just waiting on sample, if it passes quality check, and I believe it will be fine,..... I should never have supply issues ever again.
We are taking this time to really evaluate what I want to do....keep cleaning and making wands, or just drop my c c business, and focus solely on my tools.
If this sample comes back good the Devastator is just getting started.

Cleaning is virtually recession proof, selling tools isn't.

Well I have my Dev and wow the suction is Great. Used it a for times and due to my old age I can only use it on the first job on some carpets due to shoulder pain. Now I can go back with other wand with glide no problem. but more strokes but less suction. I will try to use it as much as possible. Great wand Tom just wish I were a few years younger. It makes my simple Cobb 2045 a monster. jz.
