Tony,

I would recommend using a good wet and dry vac and not even use and
extractor. You use a lot more water with an extractor. If you use a wet and
dry vac you can hone and area and on you last pass honing flush the floor
with water, then vac. Work areas of 20 to 30 sq.ft. after you flush the
areas with your machine then vac all slurry will flush out of the grout line
and you will find you use a lot less water over the day. When honing I
recommend you use neutral cleaner, this help suspend the slurry so it does
not attach to the grout line and makes the vacuuming much cleaner. It also
prolong the life of your diamond, lubricating then better than just water
and will clean the grout lines. In my service business my tech uses no more
them 10 to 12 gallon of water per day.
As time change the dumping of slurry is going to become harder to dispose
of. In some areas of the country it not permitted to dump slurry down sewers
in residential  or commercial sewers. I know comaponies that have gotten big
fines for dumping. Less water , less dumps.
Hope helps, anything other questions let me know.  Check with MB to see what
kind of Vac he has.

John, excellent advise. I think I'm going to drop the truck mount unit all
together. I have a TMI whisper 1500 Portable extractor but it's kind of
heavy. What kind of a portable unit do you recommend? That may be a little
lighter?

Thank you so much for your advise
