Mine LocksI don't feel like looking. Is there a non-swivel devastator or can it be locked?
Devastor by far, but Mikey hates Tom so he’ll now ( used to promote it) say his choice is best. Just realize it’s because Tom makes his own g l i des.
I slam jelly into t grits….yum!Make you? Hominy is delicious. Big grits....butter and pepper mmm
You don't need a large blower to use a Zipper, because we run an over-driven Roots 45 vacuum blower to 2 wands out 180' if necessary for the Zipper, and 150' to a 2" wand for the second wand.I’m not saying you guys are wrong but my experience is the rotary isn’t ideal for commercial
I used it for about 10 years we do a lot of commercial
The zipper needs a big blower truckmount (my opinion) Everest or bigger especially for long hose runs
The zipper will out clean and be more efficient every time
I don’t like to use it in the home
I was just thinking, if the above pics were scratch and sniff, I know exactly what that would smell like.When I nearly lived on the road showing truck mounts in the 80s and 90s, I learned to stop eating at most restaurants.
First, walking into a restaurant after closing when there wasn't any fresh cooking odors revealed the stench that is otherwise covered up.
Second, I looked at the carpet more than most diners, and that in itself is usually gross.
Finally, back in those days I didn't carry fresh water on my unit, and hooking up water in the kitchen was a lesson in nausea control.
Of course my prospective customers always gave me the worst jobs they had for the demonstrations.

everyone is different I guess we have used multiple zippers and honestly I don't think it works well with even our 47 direct drivesYou don't need a large blower to use a Zipper, because we run an over-driven Roots 45 vacuum blower to 2 wands out 180' if necessary for the Zipper, and 150' to a 2" wand for the second wand.
also we run the ss spinner a lot so that is even more vacuum hungryeveryone is different I guess we have used multiple zippers and honestly I don't think it works well with even our 47 direct drives
I think it's an amazing tool with a big blower setup I don't think I would be happy with a 45 blower unless 100ft or less with it I would rather just wand at that point
an over driven blower means spinning it faster at higher hg?
I think the Zipper SS is great for restaurants and heavily soiled commercial carpet. I am vlm ing most commercial carpet as well.I love my Zipper SS but it just sits. I find myself VLM'ing most CGD like a good little hack. As for residential, I don't know how guys use it in homes. It's just too cumbersome. Probably the smaller ones are better suited for residential. But that's just my opinion, do what works best for you.
Hey Jay, most VLM systems are fast and profitable however you may need good old hot water extraction for entries, lunchrooms or more soiled areas. Good luck!I feel like I am falling behind I couldn't imagine vlm working as good as a zipper in any situation but that's all I hear. I will tell you that I am buying a vlm machine this year and gonna jump in a van or go to training with someone
Sounds like you and I do it the same way. Let someone else do it now. Why not. Being a delivery boy is a great old man gig.Hey Raser: We do about 80% residential. Actually, we work for whoever wants us. Kinda like most. (BTW, I have admired your commercial cleaning biz and have wondered how you do it. I am retired now so I won't ask, hah! I take it that you don't like being under the watchful eye of Mrs. Piff.)
