Has anybody gotten real world numbers on the Zx? Is it really new? Or is it just a pre-existing 6.6 two stage that has been relabeled. can anybody show a sticker on their ZX showing what the numbers are like for example model number production number or etc. Cuz I haven't seen a sticker on one yet?

Please help!!

Wait the LX is 180in lift 225 CFM
Using Donalds at steambrite vacuum units 40.500

The ZX motor is 210in lift 160 using Donald's at steambrite vacuum units
33.600.

So you lose 6900 vacuum units with the ZX?

I think this is what rotovac trying to avoid people finding out. keep in mind that machine only has an inch and a half inlet where the rotovac has a 2in inlet that would make a difference in the cfms

It could be the difference in elevation but my testing still shows 248" lift in series..

On just two?
And as I believe it was u who had another conversation with rotovac(it may have been Anderson) and they said they are 20% stronger lift than lx motors in series, not on their own..my testing actually showed 35% more than lx..however Jim d says he gets like 14/14.5"" on his lx so they better than mytee advertised I think

What is a Patent Pending Search?

A patent pending search is a type of patent search that looks for patent applications that may affect whether your invention qualifies for a patent. Patent applications are not published until 18 months after they are submitted. Provisional patent applications are never published. Therefore, it is impossible for a patent pending search to be completely thorough.
