I hope to replace my rear roll up door soon with barn style doors so I’ll have that advantage of using my ceiling.

you can see the metal clips that are just screwed in, they work good for rakes and pole handle brushes. The wood took a little while to get right.

Where do you get the brights vacuum hose? How much does it cost
My hoses are custom made for me by Amflex Plastics in oceanside calif. When all said and done, they weren't very much more than blue hoses from my supplier. But i was able to get custom lengths my first and last hose on the reel are 75' and 2 middle are 50'. You can get the same green hose from Wanders in standard 50' lengths with 1 noteable difference i ordered my hoses with no black most all hoses including the neon or lime green sold by Wanders has black between the outer raised links (look at your hose and you'll see what im talking about) i specifically ordered these hoses all green NO BLACK. I had these made October 2019 i had (3) 2" 75' (3) 2" 100' (1) 1.5" 100' (1) 1.25" 100' if i remember right it was around 900.00 delivered don't quote me on that . Amflex makes the best , and longest lasting hoses, last batch i had made was in 1999 and are still in great shape on my spare truck, i have a bunch of it for sale off my 2 decommissioned vans @.75 perft but you'll have to pick it up the supply and waste hoses are standard flexzilla hoses 1/2" 5/8" & 3/4" my solution hoses are leaf or leafy green 1/4" from Wanders i bought in bulk for $1 perft and used wanders stainless steel gater ends to put um together with bend restrictors from my local supplier i do not recommend Wanders bend restrictors. Hope this is helpful. Dwaino

Nobody keeps their van that clean.
:eekk::eekk:. Is that a steam genie drag wand too? I have to go to the chiropractor after just looking at it. Nice set up.

My most vivid memory of that drag wand is when I did a convent. Yikes. I got wore out pretty fast and finding the sweet spot for no chatter was a bit tricky. It did cover a lot of sf quickly.

It's funny , i was at a get together at a supplier in Sacramento about 5 years ago and prochem had a big simi with all their equipment for demonstration, the guy handed me a scrub wand and i musta looked really stupid because 40+ years in business and had absolutely no idea how to use it. Ive always used drag wands . The first new machine i bought was in 1979 i bought a steamgeni 733 portable, it was a 300psi 2 vacuum machine that came with a drag wand, it didn't clean very well but it dried great, so i bought a scrub wand ,i found it cleaned well but didn't dry worth a damn, so i would scrub the carpet then drag to rinse and dry. This worked great till i got employees. I found , with employees the larger the carpet the less it got cleaned. So i replaced the scrub wand with a rotary an we would clean with emulsifier, then drag with water several years later acid rinses came about and i started dragging with that, every once and awhile i run across a carpet that the drag chatters on but not too often. But every carpet i do is first cleaned and dried with rx20 then rinsed and dried with a drag wand , the drag wand is so much apart of my business it's in my logo
