New Machine

@Mo wrote:Hi Bozy, What methods do you use?

Hi I use HWE (porty), VLM, Bonnet, Encap, and dry foam using a 150 rpm rotary or CRB but I have been looking at getting a new machine for the encap and bonnet but am torn between an OP or a Cimex from what I understand the OP can be used for both but the Cimex is only for encap but it is better ?

If any of you have any advice or experience I would like to here from you

The Cimex is better for large areas as far as production value goes, but it does take up some space in a van or trailer.

I might be wrong as it has been over a decade since being in Europe, but you have some unique limitations regarding vehicles and parking so a large trailer is probably out of the question.

With limited space available, I would look at one of the Op machines that can be folded up to save space. I'm not saying that the Orbot is the answer, but using that as an example, it folds up and fits between the vehicle's seats nicely.

I went with the Orbot about 8 years ago and use it on many surfaces (tile, rubber flooring, concrete, carpet, even stone), so it has been a very versatile machine.

If you are just looking at encap, then the Cimex is still king for production values on large areas.....it just isn't as convenient nor versatile in my experience.

No doubt the Cimex is king for encapping wide open commercial glued down carpet. But to bulky and aggressive for residential carpet not to mention the machine is a lot heavier than a rotary or OP.

Have you used the rotary with a pad to encap yet? What did you think?

Not yet just ordered some recommended encap pads and trying some Dynamall and Surround Ultra, hoping for good things

How do you do sir ? We'll I'd say almost everyone is expert except that one dude you gotta watch out for, I can't mention name but it starts with a D and last name starts with a C, I think he has an avatar called "brutally honest" or something like that Twisted Evil
