Kubota diesels are used in heavy equipment everywhere. Wouldn't surprise me if the engine has been used in Skid steers and mini excavators. Those regularly run 3-5k hours without engine trouble.

Ok, let me see if I understand this.

The old 870 is 63 HP and mine is the Ford engine.
I can clean fine upholstery with the heat off and engine on idle without damaging it

The new unit you aren't able to turn the heat off so it runs at 185° minimum. The new engine is 53 HP.

Same blower on both.

New looks. , Kubota engine. 5 year warranty good. I'm sure it kicks butt. I think by not having a heat off option they may have placed themselves out of the market for many cleaners. Large strictly commercial guys probably won't care. Edit, watching the video again. I see it has a Thermal Logic Upholstery setting. Ok, that makes me happy.

How much to install a unit like that or is that included with purchase?

Ok, I just watched the video again. The first time I watched it while doing a flood extraction, so I was only paying half attention. I gotta say i'm impressed. I appreciate that Legends went all out on this and used premium parts. I can see myself getting one when and if my current 870 dies. Good job Mr. Bruders.

I also really like the high pressure chem injection upgrade. Good move there.

I never mentioned any name.

Pick me up at the bus station . I should be there around noon saturday.
My mistaken assumption...


It must be the other guy that you use that tired old swimming pool line ad nauseum
