your trusted machine for smaller jobs ?
« on: February 11, 2019, 10:12:17 pm »
I recently bought a back up small extractor (i wont name the brand)  im sending it back for a refund coz it would suck the skin of a rice pudding.
Dissapointed that im still to find a smaller portable plug and go machine for small jobs (rather than priming pump and big set up so to speak)
Anyone let me know what you use for a small extractor to  do small areas of carpet or just a sofa?
Just want a reliable and good bit of kit for these occasions.

I use a airflex mini with 25 ft and inbuilt in-line heater performs well enough .

Alltec Express (similar to the AirflexMini).

ok truth (now embarrassed) it was the new 10/1 puzzi.

i was trying to avoid having to spring for one of the ones you guy mentioned. Do you find the extraction still good on those and do you have to prime the pump?

Also is the sabrina to light weight as a small area professional cc machine?

very small machines are of quite limited use in my experience , ,i have three gallon spotter from cleansmart on the van ... but really 99 times out of 100 its just as easy to haul the alltec express to the site of a smaller job or spot job ...  and it will do the job quicker and better .
