A few reflections on the Airflex Storm portable

  1. Can it produce truckmount like results? Yes it can but you have to work it.
  2. Air flow is excellent and unlike most portables it runs a 2″ hose as standard although we have used it with a whip line onto a 1.5″ wand.
  3. Pressure is excellent. For average soiling domestic work, 200psi is plenty. We did a really heavy soiled commercial job today and operated at 300psi. BUT – fine gauge jets must be used in the wand to achieve good pressure and a reduced flow rate to make the most of the in-line heater and to reduce refilling every 10 minutes.
  4. Excellent though it is, this machine is not however a truckmount substitute. More on this and a few reservations about design in later posts.
