Hey everyone! First post here(outside of my introduction), so I'm not sure I'm in the right neighborhood, but hopefully I'm close. So here is my issue. I just started managing a detailing facility. I inherited everything, and have next to no direction. Upon inspection I find 4 Nilfisk Alto's being used in my shop. When I move into the storage room, I find that I have no less than 5 Wap and Nilfisk vacuums torn apart and broken. Great! Being tech savvy I figured I'd have no problem finding some parts and getting some suckers going. Whoa. 400 bucks for a rebuilt motor? 1,000 for the vacuum? Seems unreasonable. Suction is suction, right? Is there any advantage to these vacuums when I could pick up a couple of Rigid or Craftsman vacs that I can tack a warranty on, and never have to worry about again?
