Best powerscrubber for dirty carpet

I was wondering what you guys have or have used to agitate in the pre spray on those really dirty carpets. I am now just using the grooming rake but I now I need more weight and agitation on some of the carpets we see at Los Angeles carpet cleaning.

I would suggest getting the Oreck Orbiter for doing exactly what your asking. Yo can also use it to scrub out grout and stone and it's a lot smaller and lighter then your regular 175. This is what we use at mission viejo carpet cleaning for the real dirty jobs.

I would suggest for really dirty carpet to get yourself the rotovac 360i. Most amazing rotary machine ever! You can also get the brush attachment for the head so you can do tile & grout as well. My company Tampa carpet cleaning is n love with our rotovac and I'm sure you will love it also! Not cheap though. Nothing good is.

Host scrubbs good but a little slow. Whittaker crb (lomac and Gls) do an amazing job and very easy to use. Rotary scrubbers weigh more and are harder to use.

You can contact some Carpet Cleaning Company for the problem. They know the correct method to agitate the dirty carpets. There will be no damage to your carpets.

Well here's my update on using the Oreck orbital commercial scrubber. It is just what we needed! Lightweight yet strong and heavy enough to properly scrub out the high traffic areas as well as grout lines. It takes up very little room in the vans and is easy to bring in and out.

Can you tell me more on how you use the oreck orbital? are you using the bush-orange? or are you using a pad?--if so what type of pad are you using? a microfiber? terry cloth?
Thank you
