Hello Spen,

In terms of performance they more-or-less match other entry-level portables.

Though I have not heard of any problems I personally feel a little dubious about having thin copper tubing wrapped around an electric motor - time will tell on that one!

Question Portable machines

Thanks for your reply John, would you recommend the Scorpion 3XPS over the Powerflite ???

I currently own an Extarcta D-X single vac portable but also often use a friends Chemspec 860 High Heat Truckmount which is awsome, hence the reason im looking to upgrade, would like a truck mount but looking to see if can get a seriously powerful portable for less than a truck mount costs.....

Cheers

Spen,

I cannot give an unbiased opinion on the Scorpion since I was involved in its' development. But....................

The Scorpion 3XPS has three three-stage motors mounted in parallel to provide 326 cfm of airflow, compared to about 110 cfm from the other machine, The whole design concept is based on a modular unit which can either be used truck-mounted (with axillary tanks if required) or can be demounted and used as a portable.

Because of the high airflow it is supplied with 2" hose as used with petrol/deisel-engined truckmounts and can opperate at distances where normal portables simply run out of puff but if you requre even longer runs it can be boosted with the unique Mitey-One Hybrid Turbo, a through-booster that adds over 100cfm to the overall airflow or can be used as a stand-alone spotting machine, The Mitey-One on its own is more powerful than your Extracta!

Spencer,

With tile & grout cleaning a lot of people are now using 'spinner' tools that use massive amounts of water.

When using a portable for this work I would apply a suitable chemical treatment, mechanically agitate, then use the extraction machine with a hard floor wand. The Scorpion 3XPS would have more than sufficient airflow even using just two of the three vacuums and the 500 psi pump would provide a good power rinse.

Why not take a look at the Raptor 300psi twin vac in-line heater
Thats alot better than your DX with 50psi single vac mate
You get alot for your money withe the Raptor IMO

Ive been looking at the scorpian, OVER PRICED, NO HEATER but very powerful

There are three levels scorpion 3XPS installed in parallel to the flow engine to provide 326 cubic feet, compared to about 110 cubic feet, from the other computers, the whole design concept is based on the modular unit can be used for car (with axillary buds tanks if necessary), Can also remove one and use it as portable.
