Diva is a cutie and Gary is suave, that couple will go places.

 

I wish I could hire them to go out selling for me, I am more of a cleaner, tester, builder than a salesman.

I always knew you existed, Diva. I figured that so engaging a personality as you called herself Diva for a reason. I see I was correct in my thinking.

Steamer,

This system would leave a Service Master rotary behind in the dust. Think of the fun you could have and the mouths that would drop if you pad cleaned over a bonnet system.

Incidentally the General used in the video was 78 lbs. heavy metal shroud construction. Something tells me the OP unit was probably lighter in weight.

Thanks for the kind words Padman; although I know you are selling yourself short.  You forget that I have seen you in action. Your knowledge and passion is infectious.  That is why YOU do so well. 

Regarding the demonstration, I guess Ted wanted to give the rotary a fighting chance; and thus an abundance of prespray was used!

Mr. Steamer, thanks for your compliments.  And in response to your question, the pic was displayed without my prior knowledge.  As long as no psychopaths are on this board I guess it is harmless! 

Are you implying that good looks bring in more sales.  You are probably right to a certain extent.  I'll test that theory out.  Getting on the phone this morning to hire some models for sales and marketing promotions!  Your personality and knowledge will always be more of a determining factor.

Would love to go out on the road with you John.  I'm really envious of that Sprinter!  That must bring you a lot of sales.

By the way ya'll, John is a tall (6'4" at least) strapping man himself.

If you know what is good for you get it dry as quickly as possible

GMONEY:  Is this machine only for people over 6 feet tall like Ken's glides?  I would like to personally see it in action sometime.  I don't get to Toronto much. But hey. Maybe someday.Guitar

Doug: I have many cleaners only 5-6" using my current glides. Only that early I sent you prefers 6 ft if you want the optimum dry times. Not true anymore. The next one I send you will not be vertical dependant.

Yes, PadMan has indicated we could have done it even better regarding the Pad system vs. the Bonnet system video. If you have not seen it yet you should. Goes to show you we can never stop learning.

How clean can you get it?...Sounds like an old Johnny Carson routine.

After this impressive video demo that more than answered many of my questions I slept on it for a day or so.

OP cleaning will never be a big seller for both my sales company or the GTA carpet cleaners. This may sound very negative but if I could get all the cleaners in the GTA to answer HONESTLY...

Do they want to move dirt or remove dirt?

It's sad to say but the honest answer would be to move dirt.

Why?

Because bonnet is faster, cheaper and a less expensive investment with less wash-up at the end of the day. The low end fast buck cleaners feel they have no other choice.

SMOKE & MIRRORS

Now this brings me to believe that a new entrprenurial person with no preconcieved ideas could do very, very well by offering a dryer cleaning system that is opposite to what the masses are doing. What a wonderful opportunity.

I guess I need to get up off my butt and do more demos.

Ted... I don't think residential Carpet Cleaners would change... I can tell you give me a wand in a house and watch me go to town...

but I think if you pushed it to commercial cleaners, it would be an easy sell..  I wonder if John ever approached a company like service master??

OP would be great for them
