From Caliber Equipment:
“The EDIC Polaris is a carpet extractor that we discovered at the recent ISSA show this fall! We were impressed by the powerthat this slim machine possesed and its overall performance was outstanding. The Polaris was designed for both wide-open spaces that depend upon productivity to get the job done quickly, as well as places that are sound-sensitive because it has a built-in silencer to keep its noise level to a minumum.”

My name is Steve Gechlik and I own Sunshine Carpet Cleaning. For the last fifteen years, I have shopped the nation for portable extractors. The best I found was the Prochem Cheyenne, a popular choice for carpet cleaning companyies. Prochem’s Cheyenne offers 12 gallon solution & recovery tanks, a 100 psi pump, a 3 & 2 stage vac and runs on a single electrical cord. However, Prochem stopped manufacturing the Cheyenne. I had to shop for a replacement portable extraction machine.
I was fortunate to find Edic’s Galaxy Pro. The Galaxy Pro boasts a 17 gallon solution and recovery tank, 500 psi pump, two 3 stage vacs and runs on a single electrical cord. Apparently, the Galaxy Pro has amperage efficiencies. Both weigh about the same. The Cheyenne offered a 1 year warrantee, the Galaxy Pro offers a two year warrantee. EDIC’s Galaxy Pro costs only a little bit more than the Prochem Cheyenne.
I previously bought 4 Prochem Cheyenne portable extractors. Now I only buy EDIC’s Galaxy Pro. I like the improved carpet cleaning features and two year warranty.

I just wanted to drop you a note to tell you how pleased I am with my EDIC Galaxy 2000. I’ve had it for a year now and I’ve had no problems whatsoever with its performance. The vacuum is strong and the pumps are working great. No leaks and the blue/gray color combo looks good. This is the one cord model, which runs the 2 vacs and the pump. I was a little leery of all those components being run off one cord but it’s not been any problem. You just have to be aware of where you are plugging the unit into. The few times I’ve tripped a breaker it’s been because that circuit is powering multiple outlets with several items running at the same time. More of an operator error than a problem with the EDIC machine configuration.

Just wanted to leave a comment on the great service Rick Hernandez provided me this morning. We have a one year old model Galaxy 2000sx-hr portable carpet extractor and the pump wasn’t working. Rick troubleshot it over the phone and got it up and running in about 15 minutes. Very friendly and professional. Thanks for hiring him.
