Ted is right. Nothing matters as much to the customers as PRICE. When I was selling glides for $149 last year and in 2004 and 2003, there was much resistance both to sales at the retail level and to the distributors. Now that I have lowered the retail pricing to $99 on both the USA and Canadian side of the border, sales have gone through the roof! Distributors buy at a much lower price as well, so I have many hundreds selling for me now as well. The sales happening now are at the highest they have ever been in the almost 3 years since I brought Teflon glides to the marketplace.
 
So when someone tells you that price does not matter, don't you believe it!

Am I missing something here or is this just a smaller LESS versatile version of a glided RX-20?

It seems to me that it is. Sure, you can adjust the RPM's. You have better adjustment over the handle and you can clean tile and grout with it.

But can you pre-scrub with a bonnet? Can you pre-scrub with a floor pad? Can you post pad with it?

Just wondering. I am hoping the answers are yes! But if they are not then you simply have a smaller less versatile version of an RX-20....and that is NOT to appealing to me.

Looks like an attempt at obtuse web-poetry. Don't give up on the complete sentence yet. Its work is not yet done!

I asked my supplier today about the Rotovac 360 did not get the ringer endorsesment I thought it would. He said he did not like for tile and grout said he would rather use a spinner and for carpet said the Hydramaster drimaster was a better option.

I took a look at a 360 today, drove it around some carpet, etc. Nice unit! A ten year-old kid could handle that thing with ease. I also like that it can be used on stairs with the right head. Major selling point, in my opinion. A few issues, though:

1) The guard over the head is too flimsy.
2) The little box that connects the coiled powercord to the motor looks like it could get knocked off easily, considering the way things jossle around in a cc van.
3) It needs a safety!
4) The hose connect is in the perfect place to trip up the tech--it should come up just under the handle and then turn 90 degrees out.

When I'm ready for another unit, I'd probably get this one over the RX-20, as long as a safety is installed. I can deal with the other stuff. I could handle the lack of a safety as well, unless I have employees. I know they won't be as careful as me. In general, it feel a bit delicate, but time would have to tell if that's really an issue.
