It is finally arriving? That should be an exciting day.

I liked the Agiclean pads the most and that is all that I have now. I didn't experiment a lot though, bought a few cases and stuck with it. I don't specialize in encap, so there may be something better out there, but those pads will get the job done.

The only ones my Orbot spin good are the glad pads. The pads aren't as dublera they use to be.

I bought some 100 percent cotton pads from Challenger and they wouldn't stay under the machine. Ironically I have never tried the Orbot pads

Yes it is finally going to be delivered tomorrow, in addition to getting 5 super zob pads with it they also included 2 of the agiclean pads as well, I was just wanting to order some other ones as well so i can experiment and see what works best and do some comparisons. I'm so happy it's finally coming. I will do some vids for you guys

I hope the guy is willing to bring it to your garage and not just leave it at the curb. From what videos I have seen, that pallet looks like a refrigerator.

I am so jealous Kevin, great machine and a large living room! Mine is still full of equipment and chemical jugs until winter finally goes away (low 40's this weekend with rain).

They really made some very nice changes. The tile brush is vastly different than mine...in a good way. My weight kit came in a plastic tool box....that bag looks like a big improvement. Handle is improved and of course a nice tank sprayer as well. A really nice set-up!

Congrats!!!

Kevin are the velcro pad drive plates the same as the Orbot? Let me know how you like the Super zorbs.

The new motor I purchased for the Orbot looks like the one on your machine. Is it a 1 HP motor?

The Super Zorbs work well Mo, I use them more than any other types these days. The old Gladiator pads were my favorite until they declined in quality and fell apart.

The whole thing with pads is that they are inconsistent in quality even within the same brands. They must change their manufacturing source often. Those Zorbs were pretty steady in quality, not always my favorite, but generally consistent.

I was thinking of trying some challenger pads with my new vibe, not anymore. I do have some of bonnet pros "ironman pads" on order though.

Well I have a job that i'm doing tomorrow morning, it's just 4 bedrooms that i have to clean on a move out
So my new vibe is going on it's first job. I will try and do a vid if i can get one of my friends to come with me and hold the camera for me so i won't have to do both at the same time. at the very least i'll do some before and afters and use different chems in each room to see which works best
