    Any Recommendations for Cloth Cleaning?

    Hey Guys,

    So i ordered the 2 brushes that connect to you polisher. One for leather and one for carpet. Well i thought they connect to any polisher. After talking to Paul, He informed me it wont work on my polisher (Rupes 15 MarkII). So would my only option (besides an extractor) would be using a hand brush? or does rupes have brush adapters to the polisher? trying to find out my best options here.

    Thanks, Mike

    I wouldn`t use something like that on a Rupes or any long throw machine anyway. That`s an expensive tool for something like scrubbing mats and stuff. If they are the brushes I have then they will work on any standard DA such as the one mentioned above as well as the porter cable and griots 6" DA polishers.

    Personally I almost never use my PC anymore with the brushes because I bought a Dewalt corded drill and a bunch of drill brushes for it and find that works much better. Although the DA and a brush is great for sand because it will shake the heck out of the carpet and allow you to simultaneously vacuum up the sand
