Bigger Bonnets
#1
I am running a 17 inch 175 with 16 inch drive plate. I am able to get 20 inch microfibers locally ,and am wondering if there is any drawback to running the larger bonnets? Thanks for any advice

No significant drawback that I'm aware of. Most prefer to have some extra pad on cotton and micro and have the pad flush with the driver when using fiber.
I'm just trying to hack my way to glory.

The big advantage is you can reach under furniture and deeper into corners

Didn't think it would matter. I was thinking the same about getting in corners and under things. I guess sometimes when learning new things you question your common sense. The best thing about these pads is,I am able to barter some vacuum repair for them. Thanks for replies.

Only thing for me when running largere pads under my175 ,  when close to a wall  doorway etc, it can catch/bind. I have a bunch of older glads that I have put under a small 175, and have ripped a few that way.  Not a problem with the OP.

Be careful around transitions with the brass nails and baseboard vents. I got my cotton/rayon pad caught on a vent and ripped the damn thing right out of the wall right in front of a client. He just laughed. I was so embarrassed. But hey stuff happens. Replacement vent was 40 no biggie
