Ahh deflated - Researching suction etc, as got all excited about RPM's of the motor. On another site saw it rated at 17,000+. Then to further research and see that RPM may have no bearing on the ability to extract the water.
Came across it rated at 350 (best of my recollection) Air Watts, which doesn't seem too impressive comparing say to top of the line Miele & the Miele doesn't need to suck up water.
Throw in the excessive length of hose the suction needs to get thru and of course where was the AW measurement taken?
Dunno. Is this a good motor? It's 10 times bigger than a household run of the mill carpet shampooer. (OK - exaggerate but certainly much bigger.)
Then to find .... carpet shampooers should be measured/compared by using '"Lift "..argh.
All vacuums should be required to use the same ratings so consumers can actually determine what they are purchasing. Same for shampooers.
Watts, Air Watts, Lifts, CFM, etc etc. Suction' is inches of water lift? - for Vacs /sounds good. Would be even better for a shampooer for sure then. Not that I have found that regarding this motor.
Is this a good motor. Anyone know.
Or is only measuring the amount of H20 put into carpet and amount extracted going to tell?
