Good Machine, but Not a Good Long Term Pro Solution
May 28, 2014
I've had this machine for just over year, and have probably 25-30 cars use on it. I've already spent $100+ on replacement parts on it.
I can't recommend it for anyone doing Pro work, it just won't last long enough.
The entire assembly for hoses, etc. are basically plastic, and the heat ruins them. Mine cracked at the main connection to the hose, and the hose connection broke ($40) too. I had to superglue the machine as it's not a replaceable part.
This would be a good hobbyist item, but I'd suggest shelling out a bit more money if you're doing this for a living, get metal parts.
Pros:Less expensive (still not cheap). Works well, and an invaluable tool for doing interior work. Good accessories.
Cons:Build quality is not good for lots of use, should be considered an occasional use only item. All plastic parts that wear and break quickly.
