i have my eclipse with 4 vac motors, 10 total stages, before was 8 stages, i noticed that for commercial carpet work better than a residential carpet, btw cleancraft claim 249 water lift (or 18.4 lift of mercury)for 3 vac and 340 (25 mercury lift) for 4 vac.ich ,i can tell it is not true,what they did was to add the lift of every motor(85 lift) each motor, and put the total. As most of the people know,when you put the vac motors in series and this one has 100 of water lift, the second motor will give maybe 80% and the third one 60%, you will never get the 100% from each motor if the set up is in series except for the first motor.
Now my machine can give 21 inches of mercury,so i am happy,
One cord is 20 amps and the other cord is 15amps,i plug the 20 amps in the kitchen,like than i dont pop any circuit
now overall in stock is 7 out of 10.
now in power i can say 9 out 10

Locko has a very powerful machine now. I have built it that way myself in the past and I will tell you that nothing short of a 3 - 3 stage machine will touch it or exceed it's cleaning power.

yes, Ken you have 9 stages, what about 10 stages?
It is the power of the stages that counts more, not just the number of them.

The power of the stages in these 3 stage motors(measured in airwatts) exceeds the power of the 2 - 3 stages and 2 -2 stage motors in your set-up. Mine produces 1800 air watts of power. Yours is around 1400 Air watts.

I found a mytee 1000mdx200 and heater and booster...pretty much a complete setup. I found it for about 1/3 of its price online, and it only has 30 hours on it. I got it for a great deal!!! it does a great job too, i've only thrown breakers in 1 house so far, but it was a very very old house...

Alex;

Actually, our "QUADRA-4 PAK" would be the one that you are referring to.

That particular unique system, which offers the versatility we all require at times btw, can be run using lower-to-extreme high CFM's and with high lift if one choses. A neat set up but a set up which would be alot easier to understand via a simple short phone instruction.

The very best and thanks for asking!

HAve a Truck mount but looking for a porty with heat to go indoors where there is security issues of doors being unlocked.
I have been researching and really like the recoil XPS but it has no inline heater. Isn't this important ?
Mytee and Ninja have 2000 watt heaters .
Can a optional heater from Mytee work (240-120 Mytee Hot Turbo) on this or does recoil have an optional heater I haven't seen???

I believe Ricky F uses that exact heater with his Recoil .You are correct there is no internal heater with the Recoil. Many use hot tap water like other portys w/o heat.
Like to hear from Ara or? on this subject. What he uses for heat with his Recoil .Believe he does Hi-Rises.

For indoor jobs I agree with Jim. You could use the Mytee in-line heater and I would use a bucket heater also to warm up the water in the fresh tank. I think that would be the best of both worlds to get you good, constant heat!
