  • Does the Cross American Jaguar 8.4 have 293.2 inches of water lift?

    Question: Does the Cross American Jaguar 8.4 have 293.2 inches of water lift?

    Answer: NO. I hate that they post "combined 293.2 inches of lift or 146.6" lift per vacuum motor.
    Please read the specs on this vacuum motor at http://www.steam-brite.com/ametek-la...0-p-15394.html
    This is NOT OK to do or advertize this machine at 293.2 inches of lift. The vacuum motors are in parallel and the max inches of lift on this machine is 146.6 and the
    They spec. it in at 235" lift in air series (147"/motor) X 177 cfm = 41,595 (26 amp vacuum system)
    or 284 CFM in air parallel X 147" lift = 41,748 vacuum units (26 amp vacuum system)
    (142 CFM/motor).
    Air series means the exhaust of the 1st vacuum motor is sucked into the 2nd vacuum motor. Parallel vacuum means that each vacuum motor draws the air out of the vacuum waste tank on its own.
    Naturally the manufacture wants you to think this machine has 293.2 inches X 283 CFM and it does not. Only 147 inches of lift X 283 cfm = 41,748 vacuum units (26 am vacuum). This is the same as the Nautilus Extreme and a little less than the Goliath 42,500 vacuum units (30 amp vacuum) and a lot less than the Goliath Quad 6.6 with over 73,000 vacuum units.
