Viper Model Comparisons

Viper series systems are our entry- level systems designed with full-sized recovery tanks.  They are designed to be super- compact and ultra- user- friendly with regard to operation and maintenance.

Common Features to All Viper Models:

  • Direct- coupled drive configuration
  • Simple, dependable Little Giant propane water heaters
  • Medium pressure capability
  • Change drive couplings and belt in less than 5 minutes
  • Roots DSL “no grease” vacuum pumps
  • Super- compact 21” W x 63” L footprint, includes heater and recovery tank
  • Recovery tank is 70 usable gallons and made of heavy gauge aluminum

 

 

The drive method used in these systems is direct- coupled, featuring unique innovations for quick and easy alignment and replacement of the drive coupling when necessary.  Alignment is easy to check and simple to adjust.  The commonly available Lovejoy #7 coupling insert is the connector between engine and blower.

  • Engine “Slide Plate” allows for simple, quick de-coupling of engine / blower
  • Blower “Leveling Plate” allows for precise “dial- in” adjustment of alignment
  • Drive ratio between engine and blower is 1 to 1

 

Vipers have been designed from the ground up to be solid workhorses that deliver unparalleled performance. Like our other systems, they feature our “UltraFlow” approach to airflow in the vacuum system. This means that performance- robbing airflow restriction is virtually eliminated.

  • Diameter of vacuum airways is as large as the vacuum port of the blower
  • Exhaust plumbing is larger than the exhaust port of the blower
  • Vacuum airways are as short as possible
  • 90- degree turns in the vacuum airways are eliminated where possible
  • When 90 degree turns cannot be avoided, oversized ”sweeps” are used.

All Viper series systems feature thermostatically- fired Little Giant water heaters. The heat output that Vipers deliver is a respectable level, well- suited for residential carpet care.

  • Fully adjustable temperature, from input temperature to maximum
  • Dependable 180 degrees at the wand, continuous output temperature.
