Simply, it’s 2 hoses in one.
- You have your steam connection that plugs into the front of ANY Chief Steamer for steam delivery. Since all of our machines have the same input for the steam hose connector, this new tool with work with all of our machines. And it does not matter when you purchased your Chief Steamer. Even if its a little older, this will work.
- The other side of the hose is a traditional vacuum hose that has nothing to do with the steamer at all. The end or our vacuum hose will plug into the end of your vacuum hose to create the suction. PLEASE NOTE: all vacuum hoses are not the same diameter. To mate with our hose you may need an adapter which we DO NOT provide. In many cases the standard hoses will fit and be a good match. But there will be hoses that are 2 different sizes and will need an adapter to fit together
- Once everything is connected and the transparent suction tool is locked in on the end of the hose, you can steam and vacuum at the same time! Steam delivery is still controlled by the trigger on the gun and the output and pressure is still controlled by the volume knob on the front of the machine. For people who purchase the Chief Steamer 125 injection machine, you have the ability to use the injection feature and make the steam wetter, add chemical, and have it act even more like a carpet extractor
NOTE: Please call us to make sure you have the electrical requirements to run BOTH a steamer and a vacuum at the same time. Running 2 machines at the same time, “on the same circuit” will create too much of an amp draw. We recommend you have your steamer running on one dedicated circuit, and your vacuum running on a separate dedicated circuit to prevent tripping of breakers and causing too much resistance in your steamer as well as your vacuum.
Joe Orlando –
I’m an owner of a carwash. What I was looking for was an affordable yet high performing steamer which can take a beating. My guys have gone through a few steamers already and this one by far is made much better. 4 months in and it still performs the same as the day we got it.
