Who cares what wand he was using! I'm more concerned about how he used a red pad and a kirby. I was thinking he'd bring out the big bad Orek and a crb! He bad mouthed those "heavy" vacuums and the wtf method of using a red pad.

But truth will have it...I'm just jealous that Mikey made $87/room at a damn motel. Asshole

Matt's confused, a red pad/175 is very best way to remove oily soil from Berber.


and the Kirby is a much better edger than the Oreck.



I've never said other wise.

Well, in that case the Alabama wonder ain't what you claim.

I never used a red pad or any other of the scrubbing pads. Mostly residential. Would it be faster or slower than a CRB?

I've seen red pads do a better job than just wanding but I hate loading and unloading the 175. And it just seems to skim over the surface. I'm more impressed with the 15 in crb but need brown brushes I think to really knock it out.

I used my 17" crb with blue brushes (for residential synthetic) on a job that was as dirty as Mike's hotel and it did great. But it wasn't a flat weave looped carpet. I'd be interested in seeing if there's a difference in time and cleaning results.

Yup...175 rocks the berber...you need the weight.. brown brush works well loosen up dry soil prior to vacuuming but 175 wins this round or OP like Tim has

because a 100 pound machine and a red fiber pad works much better on flat weave Berber covered in black top slurry, even an idiot like Marty knows that.
I’m not saying you’re wrong. I’m just reminding you of what you told me in the past, and I’m in the mood to harass you with your orek toy
