Nobody is going to be stealing your FragraMatics shampooer brush unless they cut the hose. I actually think this is a little ridiculous. You have to take out the screw which you really don’t need (There is no way the hose is going anywhere). Then I guess you have to remove the outside metal piece (second picture). Then the hose needs to be unscrewed from the nut that it is mounted in. Oh and that is not fun!
My FragraMatics Vacuum blew a fuse and I had to replace it. It uses a ABC-10BC3 which is a 10amp 250v fuse.
Have I ever mentioned that the FragraMatics Vacuums are a pain to work on? 6 screws to take off the top and they use security screws? Jim Coleman’s Vacuums only have 1 and no security screw. I really do like the security screw, but 6? At least it could be 4 maybe 3?
I just got a spam email from Professional Carwashing & Detailing about Jim Coleman’s “Hot New Look!” and by the email it hints that maybe Jim is changing their color sceme? Does Jim Coleman really want to keep up with the “lastest color tends for your carwash”? I hope so I really like Jim Coleman stuff but that teal color or the Lamborghini? Come on!
The product they were promoting in the email was also interesting: a vacuum and air machine, which is a great idea. Not really sure why it needs 2 coin acceptors though? But the sticker is better!
FragraMatics “Kitchen Sink” vacuum. This thing has everything! Dollar bills, credit cards, vacuum, shampooer, fragrance everything! Could you imagine untangling all this stuff everyday?
I love the way the FragraMatics vacuums looks, I think they look the best by far. But they are really hard to work on compared to the Jim Coleman vacuums. But I could only imagine working on this bad boy. My guess is everything is under the vacuum top! :) (A little FragraMatics humor?)
Fragramatics sells the largest vacuum in the WORLD! Just what you need… a vacuum with everything on it. Talk about everything being in a huge knot every time someone uses anything. Just seems like a bad idea. Couple that with the unit probably being hard to work on for repairs like the older models. But I think they look the best in the business though, which is good except for the ugly flower. Well I thought it was fine until Greg pointed it out to me now I hate the flower.
Just a large air compressor… that’s all.
This was an interesting product. A basic J.E. Adams vacuum with a credit card reader, bill acceptor and coin acceptor.
A D/H Dilling-Harris self-serve bay in a vacuum stand!
The worst feeling is driving up to the carwash and everything looks fine then all of a sudden you notice…….. you are missing a VACUUM! Well I had to call the Police and talk to them, which is fun. But when I started to dump some garbage I thought my luck was turning around.
I found the vacuum on my lot behind my dumpster. I was surprise how they got the money out. But what was really surprising was the damage they inflicted on the vacuum. The vacuum is totaled, at least that is what I would say. It is amazing what they did to it. It really makes me mad…. and they probably will come back, which is worse!
