The electric TM's are coming like it or not. They can and will be efficient and require 5 hp in years to come to do what 20 hp dino does now. It's inevitable.It really is..in 5-10 years vac motors will be blowing us away I'm sure..just like batteries in power tools are...a lot of doubters on that but at the concrete company I work for(I'd say a valid opinion on if a tool is good or not) we use 90% battery tools now, DeWalt flexvolt and they are amazing...
I want to see and operate one before I am retired. I got another 15-20 years to go before I slow down as my plan.
I know it. The funny part is that there will still be people for 20 plus years who think gas is the only way even once etms are proven..people hate change and fight it most the time.
this may be true ??????
I do agree with you but they're not actually legalWe need a self producing electricity, I don't know if these things are legal here in North America, if we had something like this then we don't need a stinky gas burning tm. I have watched a video where this guy built a self producing gen up to 100w of power.
ExactlyNow we're talking perpetual motion machines lol this thread is going off the rails
Buy power converter that change AC to DC or you can make high breed system where you can have auxiliary battery bank and radiator powered heat exchanger for hot water.I bought 9 8.4s in boxes never opened for a really really great price...only to find out later on that they're 36 v DC 2 cords models...so they sit on a shelf collecting dust now
any pics???I am fortunate enough to have what I consider to be the best ETM out there. I say the best because I have been running it now for 20+ years with no problems with it's design. It has very high heat (240,000 btu auto LP), great vacuum even at 150' (twin vac motors), tower design vacuum system so it can easily pick up and go inside if necessary. You can also run the steam line in a couple hundred feet if necessary, or just take the pump module in (PumpTec 207) and use the electric dual chamber Volcano heater.
The APO is absolutely a workhorse requiring almost no attention day after day of cleaning. I can plug it into the job-site or run the on-board 10K genset if power is not available.
I run the 15" Zipper SS with no problem, and it will also run dual wands by adding a second vac system and using the on-board Cat 290 pump.
I also carry 90 gallons of fresh soft water (on-board RV water softener).
All this is inside an Astro van with beefed up suspension.
Don't they already have regenerative blowers and multi stage centrifugal blowers that are crazy powerful compared to the carpet industry equivalent but just too costly currently? I think even Claw pumps(almost the same thing but have a claw shape interior) Are superior in just about every way.
