"Looks nice, has weight to do tough jobs, great price"
– Roger W. Cobbs, indianapolis, IN
"I am a ceramic tile specialist and I bought this machine to clean floors. There are times when I have to remove thinset from the floor. This machine is powerful enough to use a carbide tip head on it and not lose power. I would recommend this machine to anyone doing any type of floor cleaning."
"I love my 17" Powr-Flite."
