I'm a little late responding. I have a Trinity Phoenix. Used one at Phoenix Mikey's Fest 2 years ago.
Great machine.
I shot a short video and my Iphone doesn't let me transfer video's to my laptop via cable, or gmail too large of files. It will let me post to FB though.

I posted the video on Trinity Group. If you can swing it to this forum Mike please do, I couldn't figure out how to do it (without video being too garbled).

I call it mowing the carpet, pretty simple and quick.
For high traffic lanes I have my own approach. I use a very wet tornado pad, usually follow with a tan fiber pad, then pick up soil with a microfiber pad. That's just the dark areas though, otherwise I'll use only a microfiber pad on the rest.

This job there was only about 10% of the area where I used the 3 step method (I could probably skip the fiber pad, but it works really well where there have been those carpet protectors and everything else looks bad, so I lean on this method a lot).

This job I did today, about 720 sq. ft. an hour. This is post covid, and I still am only at 1/2 stamina.

Trinity hands downs.
13yrs ago we started with the challenger, then their challenger 17”titans that were a flop

then finally trinity, got my machine after breakfast with John as he passed through town.

we actually demo’d a machine for a couple weeks from his family in San Diego before purchasing which was super cool.

me and a buddy did side by side testing with another friend that had an orbot and while the orbot cleaned. Trinity just seemed to perform better it was smooth and fast and didn’t get booted down.

It's too expensive for a garage build.
They are far better than some of John's early models. I do like their design with the large chem tank down low.

In an age where 2k for a scrub want isn't uncommon, it's really not too high.

Maybe if you cut Mike's markup out of it you could afford one? 😉

Yeah. All MB members should get them at cost. $3800 retail is expensive. I’ll probably buy one.

Yea but we make money back pretty quick on most equipment we buy regardless of the industry.

I have a saw in my cabinet shop that’s 3k and it paid for itself with the first kitchen

I'd buy one but the price is too low...As a small pion owner/operator in their mid 50's can you make it a little heavier...Jesus Chrysler! There are my 2 cents!

I know Mike usually doesn’t do this stuff….Fred does.

And I also know Mike is swamped trying to move GG from Utah to his home right now.

It was intended to be helpful….I know better than to have a battle of the wills with Fred. He always will win…..or raft me. 😜
I'm so disappointed I thought you were a strong woman. You're going to let Fred tell you what to do? You're not even going to put up a fight? Mike will protect you! 🥴

Ok, so maybe an extended vacation on a raft isn't the wisest move. 😄

I don’t think GG should be home based. Nor Devastator. Saiger gets it.

I don’t think it will necessarily stay that way. But with john hospitalized for who knows how long, someone has to keep it going and until he figures our how thats going to work in the future he needed to get everything out of there to keep things going on the mean time.
