Nice work. I dont have a brush head, but I dont see how a brush grinding things in will do the same thing. I have many hundreds of hours on rotary machines, but prefer a crb.

A CRB doesn’t rinse away your pre spray.
Which provides more valuable dwell time.
It brings junk to the surface that truck mounts would most likely leave behind.
I like a rotary wand if a carpet needs to be flushed to hell and back.

A buffer is for polishing floors, not agitating carpet. And yes, I see a 360i as a buffer with some vacuum ports. I don't want to stir the junk. I want to pull it up.

does someone have both? Hey! Marty has both. Let's see a CRB/360i side by side comparison. Go to work Marty!!!

I use the tools I deem necessary according to the job at hand. That’s what professionals do.
Professionals DON’T base their tool selections upon bulletin board fads. If you rookies want to use a crb, I have no problem with it, but don’t expect me to refrain from pointing out that it’s a weak alternative to rotary extraction.

I have both and use the crb with just mildly stained carpets. It does dig out and agitate the pre-spray nicely. With 2 people it doesn’t add any extra time. For a carpet that bad I would definitely go for the rotary but great results either way. In this case the rotary would save time.

Every rotary video I see, those things are so slow compared to a crb/wand process. I’m surprised to see someone say it’s actually a time saver

Both gadgets should ONLY be used where needed on a given job but more goobers will run an RE over the entire house because a wand hurts their widdle finger.


RE in, wand OUT

It may seem slow but it's usually because of the extra dry passes. If you had a window on your wand, you would do more dry passes too.

This is a gagging at a nat and swallowing a camel thread, both are good processes. The differences is minute. There’s nothing perfect on this side of
