    Still seems a lot to me... I've got a George Hoover and just use that... Earns me £300+ a month normally and it was under half the price of that one..

    First off there on ebay for 330 mate, Ive been reading up on carpet cleaning and they all say stay clear of it.

    If your willing to spend 440 on it you may as well spend extra for a better machine which you will get later on anyway, Short term its going br **** cause your forking out all that money but as its business you should think long term your saving money, time and have a way better machine. Second hand karchers sell for next to nothing too.

    If you advertise the fact that you do carpet cleaning I really dont see it taking long to make your money back from it. How much do they charge where you are per carpet or per m2?

    karchers are okay for tickly jobs but it your gona do it properly invest in a hot water extraction system.they really cut the mustard and yes they are more money but you make your money back in no time with right application.i only had to do job the other day where operater had karcher and my machine and me sorted it out as it was heavily soiled.

    Better to Invest in pro kit if you can.

    If a so say carpet cleaner turned up with one of those at my home I would send him packing and get someone else in that uses the right kit for the job. Using pro kit not only looks a lot more profesional but would do a far better job than that ever could.
