welcome back. like you, i too have been on a hiatus from Autoworld.
anyway, to your question.
Yes, i have the SC1020. Yes, like edmund says, it tends to leave the surface you are cleaning, wetter. but i am happy with it. for my use, it more than fulfills the need.
Nice to hear from you bro. and thanks for the tips Edmund.
I haven't got a reply from Perfect Lifes regarding the Polti machine, and found the SC4100 at $498 with GST now
so will go ahead and get it tonight.
It has a 3.5bar pressure, slightly higher than the SC3000 and SC1020..
