Vacuum motors provide suction power. The higher the suction power, the faster the carpet dries. Our machines have 2 x 1200w multi-stage Ametek vacuum motors in series for maximum water lift, and 2” ducting for maximum air-flow to clean and dry carpets quickly. Generally, 2 x 1200w multi-stage vacuum motors is sufficient for most cleaners.
The solution tank is where you put the clean water. The more litres you have, the higher the productivity. The maximum size of tanks on our range is 55 litres. It’s ideal if the solution tank and the waste tank are the same size
The waste tank is where the dirty water goes after it is extracted from the carpet. The more litres, the higher the productivity. Our machines have high water level shut off mechanism in waste tank to protect and prolong the life of vacuum motors. It’s ideal if the solution tank and the waste tank are the same size.
Pump pressure is the cleaning power of the machine. It’s recommended that you clean upholstery at about 100 PSI, carpet at about 300-400 PSI and tiles at about 1000-1600 PSI.
This water heater pre-heats the water in the solution tank when the machine is not in use. In areas where hot water is inaccessible, this is a great feature to have. If you have access to hot water, it is not necessary.
This heater can used when the machine is turned on and generates up to 90 degrees hot water. Hot water enhances chemical action for better cleaning results and reduces carpet drying time. If you need guaranteed continuous hot water at any job then the machine for you would be the Kanga 220 with Continuous Flow Water Heater, the American Sniper 80-3500 with Continuous Flow Water Heater, or the Kanga 600 with Continuous Flow Water Heater
The waste tank empty valve is opened to release the dirty water from the waste tank. This is an essential feature for your machine.
Auto fill automatically fills the solution tank with clean water by connecting a hose from the machine to a garden tap. Without Auto fill, the end user needs to manually refill the solution tank when it runs empty meaning more down time. If your main line of work is doing big carpet cleaning jobs and/or tile and grout cleaning, then this feature saves you time. If you only do carpet cleaning a few times a week (e.g. general cleaners), this feature is not necessary.
Auto pump out automatically empties the dirty water in the waste tank. Our auto pump out hose comes standard with a non return valve. This hose is easily extendable if you need it to be longer. Without Auto pump out, the end user will need to manually empty the waste tank meaning more down time. If your main line of work is doing big carpet cleaning jobs and/or tile and grout cleaning, then this feature saves you time. If you only do carpet cleaning a few times a week (e.g. general cleaners), it’s not necessary.
The hour meter shows the number of hours the pump has been used so customers can gauge when their next service is due. This is a handy feature, but not necessary.
This feature is essential if you are planning to use a Vacuum Booster with your machine. The Vacuum Booster is a device that can increase the suction power of your machine.

I absolutely recommend Steamaster as your first choice if you want to invest in carpet cleaning, especially if you’re a beginner. The people here are just so nice and friendly, they kind of just walk you through, they help you pick your machine… It’s very easy.
Before I found Steamaster, I tried many times to do a 100% perfect job in carpet cleaning and I really failed. When I came here to Steamaster, most of our customers are very, very happy, because finally, I reached a 100% cleaning job. We love this company and we have great confidence in them… It feels like a family. I will never buy anything from any other company. I am here for many years to come.
I’ve been a carpet cleaner for 25 years and I’ve been a customer of Steamaster for 10 or 15 years. I’ve always found them to be truly very helpful. Always good advice and they really know what they’re talking about. I did have some problems with the machine a few years back and they were just super helpful and really sorted it for me.
