      I do like the idea of constant water supply/apo. You can't do the bucket brigade on this one even if you wanted to!
      For nearly 5 large I want chem metering....
      A real 2hp motor draws nearly 20A, so that's one whole cord for the pump. That means both vacs and the APO are on the other cord. Wonder what vacs he uses?

      If the same guy that did the voice-over was there at MF - I can see how he would have whipped the crowd into a buying frenzy....

      Not to mention the heater plugs into the control box... So it must not use all the amps or another cord is required...

      Then add in the inline heater, how do you supply that much power? And does the one being auctioned come with heat?

      A 2000W heater needs almost 17A, must be a third cord.

      That's a lot of separate breakers.

      I like the idea of the unit....for certain circumstances where you have constant water in and water out possibilities.. BUT it would always bug me that those vac motors are so crammed in to such a small space. Premature failure can be expected from them cooking each other out.

      Amp draw? The 2000 watt heater, as previously noted, is around 17 amps and can't keep up with decent flow, pump is at least 15, can't guess what the vacs are or the pump - out draw. Any rinse injection? Weight?

      Open design looks garagey. Too much power required.

      We didn't get to try the heater but we only had limited power outside at the experience and it had not power issues. It ran for almost 4 hours without an issue that I knew of and most who tried it liked the performance and overall setup of the unit that we were demoing.

      Most portables have there vac motors crammed together it has to be a plus that these are not confined in a plastic shell and therefore will have less heat maybe affecting them.

      Willy should get one of these and put it through its paces as I will defer to him as he uses portables daily.

      I think we are all seeing the same things..

      You simply can NOT build a good portable without too much power requirement.

      I think that will be an everyday issue at many of the user's cleaning locations.

      I'ts nice... Kind of like a Namco Scooter- with no scooter...

      Check your CFM #s'... last time I did an Electro, two 3 stage (10A) in series topped out at 95-105 CFM (No Load)

      I could go on, but no free R&D...

      I'd like to have a decent portable just because but I'm not sure about this one. I think the big pump is just overkill and I think I'd want to have a fresh and waist tank for those small jobs as well as auto fill/dump. I would also want chemical injection on a porty with no fresh tank to mix.

      I suspect your "free" R&D is still overpriced.
