    Posted: 12/August/2006 at 4:41pm
I have the opportunity to buy a Rotovac fairly cheap ($1200 USD).  The guy claims that he hasn't used it much & it looks to be in very good condition. 
 
My questions are:
Does the Rotovac really clean better?
Is it good for all residential carpet?
What about commercial jobs?
Is it faster/slower than a wand and does it have faster dry times?
Is there much difference between the older and newer model?
 
Thanks for the help.

#1: Yes, The Rotovac can clean trashies like nobody's biusiness.
#2: I say it is good for 90% of resi. carpets out there.
#3: Rotovac sux for doin commercial glue downs.
#4: From my experience, The rotovac is slower compared to wanding and it leaves the carpet a bit wetter than a  wand. ( you would need to reduce the jets down to 1.0 or .75 for improve dry time).
#5: DOnt have the new rotovac 360...So, cant help ya there.
 
 
Hope that helps!!

If you get it, give me an e-mail. I will provide you with your first set of glides for it no charge. They will allow you to get faster drying and even better cleaning with it.

i never got my roto-glides!! Cry 
 
 
Ken never sent me the free ones he said he would. he said they would take 3 weeks but that was about 4 months ago. (made a new screen name since then since i started my business)
 
I did however end up buying some green glides for 2 wands and i havent used the rotovac since!!
 
the rotovac is awesome on really soiled carpets but it just takes a lot longer and uses more water.

I did send you your glides when I said I would. If they were lost in the mail, that does not change the fact they were sent.

If the customer does not let the shipper know they were not received, it is his own fault that he/she is without. We are not mind readers you know.

Ken,

LOL, you are a funny man. I'm telling you that I never got the "free" rotovac glides you said you'd ship. Shiet, i waited for them for weeks but I guess all the talk about you here is true. I come on this site for education as I am new to the business. One of the things I should have learned off the bat was that you are just plain sorry, in every way, with that response. And to think, I almost bought some of your crap on ebay. They were lost in the mail!!!  LOL...funny

Thanks for all the heads up about Ken, you guys. I don't know what he had done to recieve all the jabs that he does on here but I see them on every other post and now i think i know why.

Erick: They were sent, and I am sorry you never got them. But, I will take care of that, once more. I will send you out another set today. Look for them to arrive in about 10 days time. and e-mail if you don't have them by then.


Thanks,
