Cleaning carpet with electric powered equipment
from a van or trailer as Ed said has been going on since the early 1970s. I didn't know this until I started thinking seriously think about
getting into the carpet cleaning business exclusively back in 1979. In those days one of the most frequent advitisers in ICS magazine was
Bane Clene. Both Ed and Bill Bane got their start with that machine which looks sort of like
a tube setting on a pyramid. In those days it
had one 1 1/2HP motor which turned both the Sutorbilt 3MF Blower and a progressive cavity type solution pump which usually ran at 150 psi.
Ed took that design and made very big improvements by adding a Lamb Ametek 7.2"diameter
vac motor which truly made the cleaning of this machine a lot easier. Later Ed dropped the Sutorbilt and went to two large 3 stage vac motors. This made the Jaguar 4000 less expenive and of course less weight. I have used Jaguar 4000s many times in my service business back in the 1990s. I also had a Prochem Legend and other larger truckmounts .So often on big commericail jobs we used both machines .I also sold many Jaguars to carpet cleaners back in the 1990s and they used their Jaguar 4000 exclusively in their businesses.
So this is nothing new at all.
As far as the new Jaguar 6.6 , it is much superior in performance than anything we have ever built before. The vac motors move more air and provide excellent recovery using 150 feet of 2 inch vacuum hose. Many add propane heaters and
can and go truckmounted. Some may have Power
Boosters for jobs requiring more hose.
This enables us to be much more productive than
if we took the machine in the house.
