Hi, we are purchasing an extractor and I have spent countless hours on research. What I have found is Milnor and Unimac are the top of the line. I do believe both have a cheaper version from China that looks very similar to the washers we have in our homes. But if you get the commercial/industrial version it will last for years without any problems. I am now researching on detergent to use. Oh and Hard mount, front load machines are the way to go.
