Steve,

What is required is a low-speed rotary with gripper plate, some form of bonnet and a suitable spraying device to apply the chemical.

I have found Victor rotaries to be reliable but there are many alternative makes.

Types of bonnet include:

The cotton bonnet, which has a large capacity and looks somewhat like a circular mop-head.

The mico-fibre bonnet which has less capacity but is claimed to be more efficient at soil removal.

Also a number of hybrid variations on the above.

The chemical used can be a specifically formulated product such a Prochem Bonnet Buff or one of the micro splitter products.

As to where to buy, you could shop on price alone but it is probably better if you have an established relationship with a trusted and knowledgable supplier to seek their advice. You could do far worse than to have a chat with Mike at Express Cleaning Supplies, as he does seem to know his arm from his elbow Wink

Can you send me some details about the system?

Like John. I've had superb service from Victor. OK, they are a local company to me and, buying cash and carry I can get a minimum of 30% off list. Ex demo are occasionally available too.  Reliability over the 20 years or so I've had the machine is 100%. A rotary is probably the most versatile and useful machines in your cleaning arsenal. Apart from bonnet cleaning, you can agitate pre-sprays, spray clean, work in protectors, strip vinyl, shampoo and bonnet dry. Probably other uses too. There are several different styles of machine. I prefer the set up as per the Victor Sprite 400/450 where the motor is more or less centrally located. Some designs are off set to one side.

Safe and happy cleaningSmiley

Is this the oscillating pad which is being demonstrated at the NCCA Midlands Branch meeting on Wed Jan/21/04 held in Nottingham?

I am not certain, but I think these meetings are open to non members as well if anyone is interested. You would need to check with the NCCA, or perhaps Derek Bolton might be able to give a reply to clarify this. It would be nice to see more people there on the night.

Cheers

Robert

if i left a hallway looking like that after i had cleaned it,i would be out of business.

i think a littel more prespray & agitation wouldn,t go a miss by the 2 doors & lower hallway entrance.

Has any one heard of the rich south . We have carpetcleaners down here and we are busy just like the carpetcleaners up north so how much would it cost to put this equipment in a van and drive down south to demo to us southerners . I hope are money is still the pound and not the euro. I can provide a venue free if it was held in salisbury and i am looking at the op system
e/mail me at desrynne@hotmail if you think its a go and i could get some numbers   des at mister clean
