Glad pads?

good point saab, that adds to the weight as well. 2 gallons of solution is what, 14 pounds?

Right around there. The machine itself weighs 88 lbs and I believe that I heard with a full solution tank it weighs around 105 lbs.

Too heavy and aggressive on residential you think? The trio that is.

It's not designed for residential although I'd used it on a trashed berber if it was empty and no furniture to deal with. The 20" is a beast as it's actually 25" wide.

Great. Thanks. Might be easier and cheaper to get another cimex u think? My cimex does better than my crb and my trinity.

which trinity do you have? If a Cm, Rock or Grumpy, there is a problem if your Cimex does better...

No that's not correct. Tuway is a brand ... A manufacturer of the green stripe pads as well as many others. http://www.tuwaymops.com

Guys will say they are using Tuways but they are not. They are an off brand look a like. I know the first "thin ones" I bought were referred to as tuways and they were not... Once I got the Tuway brand "thin ones" they were a much better pad

"Trend" "brand". Not the same lol. Anyways.....

You should post a video of this "special technique" of which you speak. You pre vac...pre spray... Throw down a green striped pad...plop your 175 on it and scrub the carpet then post crb or rake??h

The pads are made of different materials .... Some are more absorbent than others just because they are white with green striped... It's like saying Pepsi and Shasta cola are the same

You have nice beforeafter pics ...of which you have posted a ton of But you don't seem to want to share any details of "how you do it". ...are you willing to share or you just like the praise??

It took me a 11 years and $100 to get this good but I do have my good days and bad days you can't save all carpets. Having the Crb is a plus, here are my steps;

Vacuum
Pre Spot
Pre Spray
Crb
Pre Spot
175
Crb
Taking my time.

I will never take again. I know people that have the 175 and don't get my results, it will take a while to get the technique but when you do wow a big change in your business.

And Pepsi and Shasta Coke are the same " it's a drink " and you need to think like that. Don't over think it.

Learning how to use, with what you have.
