    Which steamer to buy

    As others have posted, I too am looking the the Vapamore MR100 Primo and the McCulloch 1385. Which is better? I see a lot of initial reviews, but I would rather get input and a review after a year or more of use. I'm curious as to how they hold up to a wide range of use. Auto detailing plus around the house. Thank you for any and all suggestions.

    Anyone on the forum use either machine for over a year or two with feedback? How is the longevity?

    Re: Which steamer to buy

    I just bought the 1385 for graphic removal. Don't waste your money on the 1385 if your gonna use it frequently. The filler cap has a flaw and not enough psi.But for 100 .00 its not bad to have if your not gonna use it all the time.Its dumps more water than steam.Mine is in the cemetery already which is the garbage.I bought it for 100 in return for a 800 job.It got the job done but its not quality.

    Also the 1385 bristles and attachments are garbage as well the bristles melt after one use leaving you with a retarded looking bristles.you get what you pay for but I knew that before purchasing. Buy something that will last.
