Which one would be the best buy or best machine to use for 70% carpet cleaning and 30% water restoration business?

Probably a ten year machine life span
Reliability
Performance
Price

I don’t have any, but for o/o why wouldn’t the
370 be the ticket? I think even with small op
employees, it would be the ticket. Just an opinion.

The only reason I chose the 570 over the 370 was the water cooled engine and the blower because of the helical gears. The helical lobes are supposed to be more quiet but I don’t think they are. The helical gears are definitely more durable.

I was told by a truckmount mechanic that the Kawasaki engine on the Peak needs the valves adjusted every 500 hrs. Other than that I have heard it running and it was quiet and smooth, maintaining excellent heat with a 4 flow wand at 600psi.

I looked at both machines at my local aramsco last Friday, thinking about ditching direct drive and going slide in on next rig. Both machines look really well laid out, easy access, etc. Me personally I'd pay the extra $2-3k for the Kubota in the 570
