    Really? That doesn't sound right.

    I'm not saying it didn't happen, but that isn't the Griot's CS that I know.
    It is no coincidence that man's best friend cannot talk.

    Interesting. I guess thats what was starting to happen to mine.

    I offered to send mine back for repair and they asked for a small amount of money in return for a new machine. I obliged and they sent over a new G8.

    That is awesome !!!!

    On a different note... if I call and sent my GG3 plus some change, I would get a new G8??? LOL

    I been using the GG3 for interior scrubbing and lately it is started to sound like a diesel.

    Leaning toward going the Griotís direction based a lot on the warranty. Sounds like they honor the warranty well.

    I too would go with either a G9 or if you have the coin FLEX. I have a GG6 still and it gets used about 40/60 with my FLEX. Great machine and great company/warranty. The GG3 I have is still holding up but if or when it goes I would be happy to pay $60 for a new mini from them.

    Polisher for weekend warrior

    I would seriously look into the g15. Longer throw will save you more time and cover more area. Love mine.

    It will go anywhere a g9 will but is just better. Went to add a g9 to my arsenal but just donít think their is a time iíd woop it out over the g15.

    Will spend more and get a PXE, Nano or maybe a beast...

    I assume there’s a reason that @MikePhillips recommended the G9 over the G15.
