could have been done in half the time
#1
you know I hear the dry guys complain oh yeah the dragging the hoses oh my what a chore and headache,

So I bonnet cleaned this apt on the third floor dragged up the 175 vacuum cleaner gallons of juice pads rake spotting kit.

Man this was a hard way to make 150 bucks

if I just set my truck mount up I would have been done in half the time.

start the truck bring the up the hoses with a rope over the balcony drop the hoses in front of the truck done deal.

Now I have these pads I have to wash.

To set things straight I SELL AND MAKE CUSTOME TRUCK MOUNTS

I do not hide my bias . taptap

You're right.

This is my main issue with VLM in most resi situations. It does take longer. Stairs in particular make things much, much harder.

On a side note, how did it come out?

I take my modified challenger OP machine with 10 inch wheels up the stairs , a bucket with a pump up sprayer, a vac. Sometimes takes 3 trips in and out but padding with wheels down is a breeze compared to scrubbing a wand. The most work is bringing stuff in and out.

Duck that! 3rd floor? I'm using vlm all day long. I would rather pull my 175/op machine up stairs then run hoses.

I have a nice little cart setup (which I used today) with my Orbot that let's me take everything up in 1 shot. Cake.

Now.....if it was between a porty or running hoses from a tm, then I would rather run hoses.

Lefty, I like the cart idea but haven't got around to finding a suitable one.
One trip is my goal.
Damon, I hate stairs too. I have one Saturday morning that I'm dreading.

sooo what you are saying is that first of all the carpet was not real dirty because otherwise you would have needed the 175 for agitagion to do a good job. (lucky that time) AAnd you would not use a vacuum cleaner (hack). aand you would not use the spotting kit (hack) aand you would not carry in any juice so I guess that that means you would not have used a pre spray (hack) AAnd you would not have used a rake for proper grooming (hack) And don't tell me the them wand strokes is called grooming. awwwman I'm sorry


Now I see how you wet guys can kick butt LOL

I should clarify something....

If it's a high rise and I am forced to bring everything up at one time, I can fly. Elevator.

But if it's three flights up stairs only....I don't know.

I have a repeat to clean tomorrow. I have to hump my Orbot up a total of 45 steps and then clean them all Violin But I will be walking out of that house with a lot more than $150.00happy

It's such a pain to connect a solution hose, vac hose, water hose, and 2 electric cords when I use my ETM. As you can see in this video it takes me forever.

That's what I'm talking about Mo, moving like a ninja!

Mardie, If you want to be taken serious as a cleaner , you need to post a video of your self cleaning a trashed carpet with your Von Sharder, $5.00 can be yours,

plus you would have the chance to prove your real to all of us who wonder if you really are a cleaner or just some deranged 12 year old boy posing as a cleaner on the web,

Actually the only time I follow hockey is in the playoffs. Do not really have a favorite team but when I was young it was the Montreal Canadians. I would never be a leafs fan.

the orbot is pretty easy to wheel up stairs. maybe not 4 houses per day, but 1 apartment = easyyyyyy. i did an empty 1 bedrm last week 70 minutes $214 easy $. perhaps your ETM coulda done it in 35 min? even easier $. how easy do we need it to get i reckon is the ? i'm fine with plain ole easy.

we're all so fortunate really Beer

Nice video Mojo! I have a soft spot in my heart for those Workmasters. Also love your Tacoma! Miss mine, might get another one soon.

Like I said above, if its over 150' of hose, it's getting VLM period.

Next time I use my Orbot-Dolly system, I will snap a pic. It's really easy actually, use just need a bungee cord or 2.
