Hi Terry
I have been bonnett buffing for 15 yrs. It is a lot quicker, but sometimes one has to get the extractor out for really grubby carpets. I use the Numatic 400 with Ultimate Master and as you say the results are very good.

Ey up Terry

At the moment i have a steempro 2000, but that is going as i personnally think heat and water on a carpet is a recipe for disaster. I am getting a machine very similar to the Cheyenne without the heater.. This is my view and i know other peeps on the forum think that the more heat you apply the better job. If i need hot water i think the water out of the tap is hot enough. Once again this is my personnal view...  4yr ago all i had an extractor machine for was cleaning upholstery and the same machine could clean curtains with solvent. Just buff Grin Grin Grin buff  Grin Grin Grinbuff man.... Tongue
