Hi, I do the maintenance for a small apartment complex and was looking at a few models on the internet and wanted to get a proffesionals opinion about which machine would be the best to use for a complex that has 30 apartments I was looking at this JL Mighty Lite II Heated 120 PSI w/ Hose & 2 Wands would this be a good machine for what I need it for? Pros/cons?  Thank you for helping me make an informed decision!!

I would get the Rotovac cfx or a regular portable used on ebay. You can also look into a cimex machine. The rotovac cfx has auto fill and auto dump that will save you alot of time!!!!1

I'm happy with my Mytee, but it only gets used a couple of times a year, so I'm not really sure about it's long term reliability under daily use.

120 psi isn't enough for what you want to do. Way too slow and only offers surface cleaning. Will not break up surface tension.

You want your equipment to work for you, rather than against you. You want "it" to do the work for you.
