Thanks for your insight. I think I can hook a wand on this portable, if not I will buy one that will let me.I've never used a self contained extractor. My Powr-Flite upright is about a year old and works great so far.Powr-flite isn't the best made in my opinion but i got it at a good price. It's the 200 CFM model with 2000 watt heater. I have just finished 10,000 sq/ft. job Commercial glue down.It's a little hard on the back using a wand on large areas.
The only thing I have thought about in the past with self contained is the flexability of the machine vs. a wand. If your doing commercial you need to get under desks cubicles etc. Do you have another machine also? I can see the self contained being used on wide open areas.By the looks of it the CFR might be a better made machine than the Power-Flite. Hopefully you'll get more feedback.
The 360 is great, the cfx, not so much. Cfx has inadequate vacuum power and if is just the CFX unit, no pump, so you are relying on the homes water pressure. You'd be better to buy a traditional portable.I am about to purchase a rotovac 360cfx with all the bells n whistles has anyone used the machine any pros and cons
