I am looking into one of these. I might be picking up a library that is three floors and about 8000 sq ft. Also have a ski lodge at 7000 sq ft twice a year. As of now, only carpets that I don't use truck mount on. Will the vibe fit what I want it to? I have been borrowing a cimex for ski lodge, but that sucker is heavy.

I use my Vibe all the time and every chance I get. I like the small size and can easily lift it. Does the job very well. But change out the stupid lid like I did.

Damon you over THUNK the lid. I have that style lid on my water tank for my TM. All I did was go to the hardware store and bought a cheap handle and screwed it on. It's been on there for years now.

I bet it looks like a dresser drawer.

The Trinity looks good but is heavy af and performs poorly even with modem components like a 32 5-window hotrod?


looks good, easy to work on, readily available parts, plenty of support online and is fun to operate.




and out cleans the Tesla but for FDA that is besides the point.

I am going with the vibe. Now I have to find one in stock or arriving in a couple weeks.
The vibe is a good machine and will get the job done. I feel the Phoenix is a little better and I like the placement of the 2.5 gallon jug. Maybe a little pricier but when it's time to replace my sprayborg, that's what in looking at.

How about what pads and chems are being used.
I use a variety of encap chems. They all seem to work well. I use oxy encap products when dealing with coffee or beverage stains and it usually just wipes then out. Normally I have been using fiber scrub pads but have recently got in a stack of microfiber pads. Looking forward to trying them out. I have been using Bridgepoint encapuclean, oxy and D's as well as Harvard's oxy encap. Both work about the same.
