Hi,
I am getting a Cross American Quadra-4Pack and a Rotovac. I was wondering if a Little Giant 2HT propane water heater would keep up with the constant high water output of a rotovac wand or 360? Anyone have any experience with a similar setup? Thanks

a propane heater can more than keep up with any system I have ever seen. Including dual wand setups.

Groomer;
 
There are quit a few who run the RECOIL (New Generation XPS) systems with a #2HT and the rotovac units with terrific results!
Especially the QUADRA 4PAK "Contractor Series".

yeah... I could,and I want to buy a t/m but I do a lot of commercial work mostly from 6pm till 2/3 am so I can't have windows open for security reasons, and there is a lot of 3 to 6 story buildings so for me portables are the way to go.
but I've been getting a lot of residential work too so for that a t/m would save me a lot of time, maybe in a year or two I'll get a t/m.

I'm a TM guy who went porty
 
still have the kero burner in my van............use it on nasties where I don't have to run TOO much solution line (I don't leave the porty in the van)
 
I really don't mind running a kick a$$ porty,,,,,I get the same job done and it's opened up a whole lot of new work for me (high security and high rises)

If you have a hard time maintaining heat for the Rotovac just get smaller jets or turn down the water pressure. You have 6 jets working instead of two.
