I am actually building something extremely so similar with a pump out
Pm me I'm sure we can work something outIt’s useless to me. I took the “case” apart? I guess that’s what you call it. But never even applied power to the motor. If you recall before I had the jag my portable has one 6.6 I was going to upgrade it to a lx. I’d sell it dirt cheap since I took it apart like $50. If I don’t sell it I may experiment at some point with it.
The old style with the lint hog booster has the 3 stage high powered vac motor. Still produces not the same but similar power like the lx vacs. If you are going with the new lx booster and planning to use the auto dump make sure you get a mytee filter and bunch of piglet filters. They are $9.99 for 25, you can reuse them but I don't because too discussed to clean them. I just throw the used one and put a brand new.I just sent a message to john over at mytee. Apparently even running one pump on the twin lx model I will get a additional 180 cfms and 130' of lift!!!! With just one motor on! Does the smaller unit with the filter get the same?? I wonder if it uses the same motor. My only concern is I may need a generator with all these cords.
Well by next week I'm going to pull the trigger.
I'm going off your guys knowledge and thanks for all the help!!
Even if using a reel i would still break them up. This way you can drag out what is needed then take next cuff off of reel and hook to machine. That way if you only need 75' your machine isnt dragging water and air through 200' of unnecessary hose. They also help if you keep flipping your wand over everytime you set it down like i do lol.
One of these days I’ll get one. Being so deep into carpets so quick I acquired some very useful equipment. Mostly stuff I use commonly but have made a few mistakes. $700 on magnetic ads was a waste! And some equipment purchases weren’t the best, but most proved to be. After I get the Orbot, and Brush Pro paid for, a custom wand and hose wheel is next. Then my 2019 goal is to get a Van that looks nice and runs well. I so need a mechanic in AZ to bring my Van to. I’ve got so much worked out, I’m 99% sure to make it run perfectly it needs a EGR sensor and vacuum lines for the EGR put back in place. But so many mechanics are crooks. I’ve been so busy, and when it’s 20 degrees out here my fingers don’t work as well as they did 20 years ago!Even if using a reel i would still break them up.
