The surprise was the quality and performance of the Thorne Electric Koblenz Cleaning Machine Floor shampooer/Polisher. I fully expected that their machine could not match "the good old days" when I used to use a "Regina" floor polisher that was back then best on the market. As soon as I lifted it I knew that the machine could pass for the clone of the one I used to use. Succinctly, it is even better than the Regina. Needless to say I am a "happy camper", so happy that I bought two more for gifts for my two daughters.
This product does an amazing job on ground in dirt. It polishes and buffs to a high gloss with ease. It is definitely a keeper.
This is by far the best cleaning machine I have ever owned. It makes my white carpets look brand new. It stripped and polished my kitchen wood floor to a mirror finish. A very exceptional cleaning machine.
Going to give a review but keep in mind I have only used it twice. We have a wonderful small chihuahua that we love. Unfortunately she doesn't make it outside as much as she should. That being said, she has designated two different areas to do her business as needed. Noticed that upon entering house there was an odor of urine. My wife sold our old Kirby shampooer so needed another one. Bought this unit to replace it. Purchased some Kirby quick-dry shampoo at the local vacuum store and gave the shampooer a try. Didn't take long to do both areas, about ten foot by ten foot. The next day I vacuumed the areas and was pleased withy the results. No odor and any stains were removed. This product did exactly what I needed. Some people said the t bar gave them extra leverage but for another $50 I didn't see the need. Was completely satisfied with the regular handle. All was positive but can not comment on reliability or longevity. The unit is made primarily of metal which is a welcome change from chintzy plastic. Hope this helps and have a great day!
Easy to assemble and easy to use. Well made.
This machine performed better than expected. I was afraid it would pump out too much liquid as described by other users, but I realized that it releases the fluids whenever you pull the trigger. News Flash!
For those who complained about the amount of fluid, let go of the trigger and it will stop squirting fluid. That’s a no-brainer. You will still need to mop the floor after using the scrubber because all it does is scrub to release the dirt and grime on the floor, there is no built-in wet-vac to remove the dirty water (that would have been a nice feature).
I purchased one like this years ago and paid twice the price and it didn't have the water tank on it. I read the other comments before I bought this one and the negative statements were not true. The one about it not standing alone and have to lean it on a wall is true but not a problem. The cord is plenty long and the trigger to apply not a big problem, I just change fingers when on gets tired. The product is better then I though it would be for the price.
I bought this machine to buff my floors. Cant believe sold as a buffer. It comes with a couple buffer pads that do not attach to the machine. You sit the buffer pads on the floor under pads that are attached for cleaning and hold against the floor and try to keep the 2 buffing pads from flying out. Without the pads being connected and not enough weight of the machine it does no type of buffing. Did not try to see how cleaned since I only ordered it to buff and will return it.
It was difficult for me to put together. A magnetic screwdriver would have helped greatly. I shampooed all my carpets and am very pleased with the results. The only dfrawbacks I had with it was that the handle would fall back to the floor if it wasn't set properly on a very, flat surface; the trigger was very, very tight for me to dispense the shampoo and I ended up with a sore finger and hand. It would be nice if the cord were longer and you could see through the tank in order to observe how much fluid remained in the tank. If the tank were clear plastic instead of the light blue you would be able to see the how much fluid was in the tank. Trying to see through the blue plastic was impossible for me. Very nice brushes come with it. Also called the Company with a question and they answered right away (no on hold or press this button stuff) with what I needed to know. Overall I would purchase it again.
I bought this specifically for our kitchen tile which has a textured surface. The scrubber would not get down into the grooves.
This Machine is not as big as I thought it would be a lot smaller it does a very good job of Cleaning my carpet,floors and stairs a nice little machine to have for removing spots from carpets and scrubbing your floors.
For the purpose for which it was purchased (polishing my hard wood floors) it's exactly what I need. Y'all need to put it back on the shelves as I saw one a few months ago in the floor care section of a local Walmart and neglected to get it. Being an "ol schooler" I prefer using this kind of machine for my hard floors and deep cleaning my carpets. And with a green pad I can also strip old paint and sealer from my porch and deck without the need of a scraper or harsh chemicals and in far less time.
Light weight to carry. Cleans well on hardwood. Little confusing on exactly which brushes you have because you need to match the brush to the surface type (wood, tile, vinyl). Sure saved a LOT of elbow grease. Easy for my wife to use too. Purchased $147. Will order extra brushes that weren't included.
I am very happy with my Koblenz Floor Shampooer/Polisher. I had an old Regina Floor Shampooer/Polisher for years, which finally died. I have looked for a quality product to replace it and this is perfect. I have wood floor in my home and it did a wonderful job. Would recommend this product
Great little machine, Wood floors turned out beautiful.
Very happy with this product.
I had a rug shampoo like this several years, and was so glad to see that Wal-Mart had it in stock. Love using this type because you can get into corners and the brushes really work on spots.
In all my years of owning Saint Bernards.......Their's nothing worse on rainy days then drewling and muddy pawed furry friends , tracking up the carpets. I love my carpet shampooer, and since the move we now have hardwood floors and it has cleaned and polished them in no time flat, and I did it all myself. The money i have saved made up for it in the first use after purchasing.
Absolutely love it and it was very easy to assemble!
LOVE this product, I used it to shampoo my carpet and remove excess grout from my new tile. This machine was a life saver. Tomorrow I will try out the grout cleaner.
Excellent product. This purchase was to replace one that I wore out after over 10 years of heavy use.
