I'm giving serious thought to running a machine with 2-3 people. It needs to be able to LEGIT support 2 wands, to do this, though. Anyone using a machine (something currently on the market, that can be purchased NEW) that can do this thing? The 870 doesn't QUITE have 2x the airflow of the 570, and I'll buy an AT if I HAVE to, but....eh.

I thought Steam Action was one that had folded over the years. What's the website?

That 90k "Stealth Bomber" is a bit ridiculous. I'm struggling to understand why the Tri-Star is 20k more than the 870, with maybe 30 more cfm. What am I missing?

I'm not sure what the rpm is on the SA but the Tuthill will pull more cfm maxed out. The ZG 100 on the 870 is <550ish CFM @13" (3580rpm).

The bigger difference is the much higher lift on the SA (18-20 with water injected blower cooling) vs the 13" or so on the 870


and all the stainless

If you're gettting in the market for a dual wand machine and you're in the need for another vehicle, AT would be my choice, because you get more for your money spent. I know the AT costs a little more, but how much more does one cost compared to an overpriced stainless steel tm and van?

Nah, you are better off having two trucks, with good size units.. Two vans, and three guys!!
