I am getting ready to purchase a new surface cleaner. I like the Whisper Wash Big Guy---thanks Russ for letting me demo it.

I also have been looking at the Whisper Wash Ground Force.

Would like to get some feed back on what you guys think of each of these, good or bad.

I've got a Mosmatic 20", Hydro-Tek 28, and have had my Big Guy for a month, got to say I really like the Big Guy. And not just because they named it after me.:D

I like the Big Guy....really easy to move. But I mostly do residential as of now and I like the agility of the one I have now and it is set up like the Ground Force- minus the wheels. It is more like the Classic.
I am worried the Big Guy is too bulky for my needs........if money were no option I would buy both and use the Big Guy on the larger jobs.
Thanks for the input,
without using the Ground Force I may just go with the Big Guy

UPS just dropped off my new big guy and jast did a job it works awsome highly recomend it. I also have an aqua pro but its a lil beat up. the swivel went bad but havent got around to repairing it. and a 20" GP from northern tool. surprisingly that one was my first and has been to hell and back still works like a champ. buy the big guy if you have the gpm's if not buy the aqua pro.

I have used many different surface cleaners and have never used one better than the Big Guy. I do 99.9% residential. Speed is money. If you can afford it - and have the gpm's - the Big Guy will not disappoint. In almost 3 years of use, i have never had a spray bar break or bend or a swivel leak - and I bought mine slightly used!.

I saw the Aqua Pro....I liked the way the set up was on it. With it being a 24# and weighing 21 lbs, does it do well without coaster?
The one I have now is a 20# without coaster and does fine but thought the 24# may be alittle large to not have something to help hold it up. Then again the weight is not too bad.

Richard, Whisper wash will set up the ground force just like the big guy if you call some of the E-vendors(Bob, Nichole, Tracy, Russ) they should be capable of ordering one with the big guy back wheels as well as the front caster. I think thats the case as well, Chris Chapple can chime in here on this becasue he is the one who informed me of it.

I have five surface cleaners, four of them whisper wash the other has a whisper wash swivel. I have had the same big guy for over ten years that should tell you something. A 5.5/3500 will run a big guy just fine but I think you would be better served with a ground force. I just picked up a used one and it is pretty impressive.

Thanks for the replies guys, great info. I will prob end up with the Big Guy. I have been used to a cleaner with the handles on it like the ground force, thats why I liked it so well. I would get the big guy before I would set one of the others up like it.
I will prob order me a whisper wash swivel and manipulate it to my old cleaner so I will have the smaller one for tight jobs.
Thanks again!!!

I have a 28 inch Hydrotek it has held up extremely well. I also have the Whisper Wash 36 inch Maxima, I absolutly love it. I use it with 8 GPM and it does a great job. I don't think I could ever go back to a surface cleaner without 4 castering wheels. I love being able to move it sideways.
