Best Wand, what is it?

Post by ACpower1 on Wed Oct 07, 2015 2:05 pm

Okay I want to hear about your all time favorite wand.

Top of my list right now is Dev Pro Swivel with an ergo handle, either the wand eez or a less expensive pistol grip also with Joes extended forearm handle and slot glide


other ones Im still considering

-prochem ti

-mach 15

-knock off prochem ti



So far the dev pro looks the best in price, quality, and features

Commercial: PMF Mach 15 or Prochem Ti (PMF welds both I believe)

Residential: I still support the Prochem Quad as the best

I would probably sell my 360 at this point, it gets pulled out very rarely


I think a 15-17in head rotary would be cool if it wasnt too heavy.

Problem is that the rotary works in part due to the weight. Just have to decide if the trade-off is worth it, but there are times when you will not get things clean without one.

Even if you rarely use that rotary, I feel that every cleaner needs to have one available for those times when it is a must to get the job done.

(Now back to the wand selections)

I'd listen to DP, he's got the baddest as$ and lightest wand I've ever seen.....

I think it's the PMF 15 one?

I'm not saying don't listen to the other guys, because I'm no wand expert......but DP's is the best I've seen so far.

That's the way I feel about my RX now, it's just too heavy.

If you go with the PMF model (same one I am using), check them out at Dultmeier sales. The last time I checked, it was the cheapest price.

You know, I never really thought much about using a wand outside of the one the machine came with....I do recall using a wand when I first started and when I went onto my own I never could find a wand I really liked or even compared to the "ole" wand....I just made things work, about the time I got out seemed to be the time wand focus was being more of an issue....I have tried the Prochem Ti and love the way it feels...Its on my radar after I get down the road a bit.

The one that came with the Cleanco is pretty good but not what I want.

you think that mach is okay with a 45 blower ?


ya Devon the wands that come with machines work fine but there is much better out there,  even the VT14 is a big upgrade from most standard wands that come from manfcters


its between the mach and the dev pro swivel, but I think its going to be dev pro swivel

AC, Joe has the Machs for cheaper, I can't remember how much I paid for the Mach 12 but it's definitely cheaper than $ 599.
Mach 15 was $ 800 but it includes green glide, stainless steel QC and soft touch, and his high shear kit.

I absolutely love the Machs, the only thing is with the 12 Joe only sells it bare, you would have to buy the glide and soft touch ss valve.

Even better....good to know.

I thought PMF did all the welding for Prochem wands.....is that still true? I never could figure out why the Prochem Ti version was so much more expensive than the PMF Mach 15. scratch

If I may advise you, I would go with PMF Mach 15, it's lighter by a couple of pounds, it sucks ( literally Razz ), with Joe's shear kit, carpets dry in a couple of hours without fans ( on non soiled to moderate soiled conditions ), the high shear kit is adjustable, so if you are cleaning dirty carpets, you can shift it to more upright to get more flushing action, I never adjust mine cause if it's soiled I usually just mix my pre spray strong.
The other benefit is you would have to spend a good $ 800 - $ 900 for a used prochem ti while you can get a brand new pmf Mach 15 for around the same price with all bells and whistles from Joe Bristor.

+1 with DP on the PMF Mach 15.

Mine was pimped out by Joe years ago and it is all that I use on commercial. It has great recovery and the shear kit does provide excellent balance by keeping the heat right at the surface without wasting it in released steam.

Mine started out with the SS roller glide, which sucked and was unusable until they came out with the teflon lip glides that are standard now.

I still think that it is PMF who welds up the Prochem wands, so why spend the extra cash for the PC model?
