good question: an OP that gives better results than my Cimex, but it has got to be considerably faster. it's looking like the Padman fits that bill, but depends on price.

What would be faster is have 2 or 3  cheaper machines with helpers running while you are sipping coffee or something else Beer
 Sounds like padman will be over $6000

Aren't you running an orbot?  With a 21 inch gray micro fiber pad or fiber max pad-----It is slower than the cimex?

From what I read, the Padman will be at $6,500.00 - $7,000.00. However, I don't think anything is set in stone. 

The Liberty and Mytee at their introductory rates are very good values.

I currently have a Oreck Lowboy, battery sprayer and just picked up a ProTeam XP.
My next 2 pieces will most likely be the Trinity Liberty and a Dri-Pod air mover. 
The liberty because I like where the solution jug is placed and the machines good reviews. 
The driPod for its versatility on carpets and upholstery, and hopefully it doesn't blow picture frames off the walls LOL. 
Plus, if I see a great deal for a used CRB I may grab one. I have come across lot of pet hair in some of the homes I've done.

I'm currently using a Ford Ranger pulling an enclosed 5'x8' trailer. Next purchase, hopefully after the first of the year will be a van.  I'm trying to figure out which one.  Depending on the day that you ask me, I'm  buying a Ford Transit or a Ford Transit Connect or a older Econline van or a Ram Promaster or a BMW Metris or  about 3-4 others I am considering. wow

i sold the Sprayborg years ago because i need dwell on resi carpet. i only use the Orbot on resi. even with the Sprayborg on the Orbot on CGD, i can't see how it would be faster than the Cimex.?. i've never tried it though. for me, without a Sprayborg, it's not worth it on CGD.

It can be faster by using larger jets like 02-03 and then a 21 inch fiber max pad and push fast.   21 inch fiber pads from bonnet pro are rated for 10,000 sq ft of encapping. versus 3 8inch pads on cimex.   Just bring cart full of jugs or use an electri pump to refill your jugs......much faster than a cimex or get a trinty
