Hey guys,

New from Australia where portable extractors cost $8000AUD.

So im working on setting up Carpet Cleaning as my side hustle.. and i have been looking at equipment every night before bed.. then i found an Clarke Technologies ALTO EXT10 for $100 .

so not knowing what im looking at i bought it. im not sure if there any good, i would hate to lug this big machine up stairs but the price is right?

Any way i cleaned it up and the motors seem a bit dull and pulled it down and one motor is stuck.
so i ordered 2 new motors.

im really excited if i can get this going for $500 ill be stoked.

its only 120psi im worried that wont be enough.....i guess it will just make me work hard hahahah

would love your thoughts

Just move the wand slowly on wet pass. Be sure to flush out all of the chemicals. Don’t leave carpets soaking wet. Do extra dry passes. That’s all you need to know to clean with an old portable. 90% is how you use the wand.
