2019 - Portable Extractor Reviews - Eclipse

It's 2019 and another year to review our Editor's Choice for Best Portable Extractor. When we look at a portable extractor, we look at the following items:


2019 Winner: Eclipse High Powered Portable Extractor

The Eclipse tops this category again in 2019. Much of this is because of its 2018 design improvements.

Let's look at the breakdown of our review items:

The above points gives the Eclipse our top Portable Extractor rating. However, we wanted to list some of the improvements we noticed on the new Eclipse models:

1) Better Rear Wheels - The new wheels are much more durable. These are heavy-duty 600 lbs rated wheels that will hold up to anything.
2) Taller Machine - The Eclipse is 2in taller than the past models. CleanCraft made the bottom mechanical area a little taller. This design change allows much easier access to their "Slide-out" tray feature. By the way, this "Slide-out" feature is one of the best designs of any portable extractor!
3) Improved Dual Heater - The dual heater is mounted a little differently and has much better insulation. The Eclipse seems to get even better heat than it did before.
4) Dump Hose - The dump hose on some of the past models sometimes wore, because of the continual motion of dumping water every day. The new system "rubber" dump hose fits nicely on the unit and provides a more sturdy dumping solution. Way better than a lift gate dump system!
5) Forced Venting System - The Eclipse now comes standard with 4 Venting Fans on the unit. Two are installed on the front of the machine that blow out, and two are installed on the back panel that blow air in. This works much a like a computer, and designed to continuously blow cooler air into the Eclipse electrical/mechanical area and blow warmer air out. Great idea!
6) Components - The mechanical area also went through an overhaul and the individual components of the Eclipse area better designed. One such change was the vacuum motor mounting. The 2018 redesign changed this mounting to a much sturdier mounting system. This system also has a quick release to easily remove the vacuum motor when it is time to replace.
7) Auto Features - For those carpet cleaners use to a truckmount where they don't have to stop and fill/empty their extractor, the Eclipse has "Rapid Connect" Auto options that can be purchased to automatically fill & empty while cleaning. These options actually snap right onto the Eclipse. Plus, these features can be added at any time after purchasing the Eclipse. You don't need to buy them with the Eclipse, and can get them later if your needs call for them.

If you are looking to purchase a hot water extractor, you may want to put the Eclipse High Powered Portable Extractor on your list!
