I purchased the "Blue Baron 45SE", all accessories, in February 2008. I had been looking around comparing product and prices for months. Like anyone would, I wanted to get the best possible unit at the most affordable price. The "Blue Baron 45SE" is that machine. It gives you all that you need in a truckmount unit. It's space saving design will give you enough room so that you can install a complete set-up in a short wheel base van. I have the "Blue Baron 45SE", waste tank, fresh water tank, vacuum and solutuion reels, and all other needed accessories installed in a short wheel base van and still have enough room for it to be very user friendly. The 3 stage heat just keeps on giving you a constant supply and that's great when time is important when you are needing to get finished in order to move on to the next job. There's no waiting on this unit to build heat. The control panel is very user friendly and has easy access to it's parts for regular maintenance. When I first started using the unit my 2nd customer, who is a loyal customer that I have cleaned many times over the years, stated to me that he thought that this was the cleanest his carpet has ever gotten. One time while getting fuel, one of my competitors came over and looked at my "Blue Baron 45SE" and was very impressed at the design of the unit. He asked me if he could see it in action sometime soon. What else do I need to say? If the customer can notice what the unit done and your competitor can see the quality, I think that says it all. I'm gladthat I took the time to look around and compare and was fortunate enough to find the "Blue Baron 45SE". Thanks so much Pete for an excellent machine that meets my company's needs. Keep up the great work.

I wanted to write and say how happy I am with the Blue Baron 45 SE machine. I have had it a little over a month and it has supplied me with the heat and the durability I was looking for in a truck mount machine. Pete has been great with helpful information I have needed about the machine due to my lack of knowledge. His fabrication and machinery skills really show in his truck mounts. The beauty of my Blue Baron has lead to many compliments and pictures of the machine have been useful in my marketing. Thanks Pete!

I have been in business for 10 years and have owned other name brand units. The Blue Baron 45 I have found to be the best in quality and performance. The Heat this machine produces is better than any machine I have used. The Recovery Tank is very high grade Aluminum and has excellent filtration. I now have 600 Hours on my machine. Pete has provided excellent customer service in answering all my questions about the machine's maintenance and operation. I am looking to buy another Blue Baron soon. Many Thanks, Dan

Peter, when our Heat Exhanger went out I started looking for a replacment . The manufacturer wanted $1500 for a replacement. Then I saw your ad and called. I asked a ton of questions due to the fact that our unit is a direct drive and heats with the water from the radiator. You were very patient with me, answered every question, so I decided to give it a try and I am glad I did your heat exchanger is awesome. A-Plus Carpet Care

Indeed an excellent deal. Many Thanks R. Yockel
About 3-4 years ago I purchased a Heat exchanger from you. I modified a prox. 30+ years old Steamway Odessy, and fitted in. Then I haven?t used it, because I had a good high paying job as a tradesman, at the time. I lost my job a year ago, so I finished off my little project, and started to clean carpet, with the hope; I get to know the guys in the industry, and can start repairing equipment for them. I also have a few little ideas to develop and make some accessories for the cleaning industry. I was cleaning a big school with another guy, who have a $20 000.00 plus truck mount, and his jaw dropped down, when he see me operating with your heat exchanger in an old machine. We all lose 20-degree +, when running 150+ hose, but when you see the heat pouring out from my wand, and see how is cleaning, you don?t need to check the temperature. When I record it, I was running with 200-feet hose. It is good is many expensive unit out there. I made a little movie clip from my wand with my mobile phone, I would like you to see it, don?t know how I can send it, in Contact us not have place for attachment. I am thinking on a small way, specialize converting some older units with a new heat exchanger, for the ones who can't afford a new machine. The problem is to get it here, Thanks for a good product, Regards; Tamas Tassonyi I am in Melbourne, Australia.

My Partner and I are very happy with the work you did on our Performer Cub XL. I can see Great Skilled Workmanship went into this Heat Exchanger to make such a perfect Fit into my machine.
Just knowing there is someone like you that can build a Discontinued Prochem Cub Heat Exchanger, makes you a "Life Saver." My machine is like New now and the Axis Point Heater Design is giving us better Heat than the Old Original OEM Heat Exchanger.
Again Many Thanks for a Great Job!

Anyone who understands heat exchangers knows that what Pete has designed is flat out awesome. I say this because i purchased one from Pete through Ebay and am 100 % satisfied from the results of this coiled stainless steel heat exchanger. I have been looking for a coiled heat echanger made of stainless steel for many years. Not only is this flat out perpormance but well designed as well. Pete delivered on time plus a low cost in shipping. I have a custom designed machine that has a 27 hp Kawasaki engine and a roots 45 blower. I look forward to doing more business with pete in the coming years and would recommend this unit to anyone. If you have been using proane copper STOP you will be disappointed because copper cracks. Stainless steel coils are the way to go. I have been in business for 22 years ( allcolorscarpet cleaning dyeing) out of indianapolis. Way to go Pete hope your hand is doing better
The Heat exchanger you built for me works perfect on my old cub.I very much appreciate the extra time and effort you offered me in removing the old heat exchanger and assisting me on installing the new one.Pete you went above and beyond to assist me when i needed to get my machine up and running and just want to say thank you !

Message:Pete - Prior to purchasing your heat exchanger I used a Little Giant which produced good heat however the safety issues were too much to deal with. So I purchased your heat exchanger which can be outfitted to just about any carpet cleaning machine which makes it a must-have for a serious carpet cleaning professional and not only was it safe, but it also bought my cost down because I no longer needed to purchase propane and it performed perfectly! I highly recommend this unit to all carpet cleaning. I received the unit in excellent time and had no complications. Your service was just as good as your unit performs. I am looking to outfit a 2nd machine soon and look forward to doing business with you again! Thanks.

We received our Blue Baron 45SE in Sept. 2012 and have been using it for the past couple of months now (without any problems)and its performance has exceeded our expectations. Pete has created a great design with his units and solved any problems that other units in the industry would have. His craftsmanship and the use of quality parts along with the openness(accessability) of the unit makes it worth its price. We did some shopping around before choosing to go with Pete and we can honestly say for the quality of machine and everything else that comes with this unit it is definitely the best price out there. Pete's four stage heat exchanger design with diverter has been exceptional with strong and consistant heat when needed. Overall, Pete has put alot of thought, heart, and work into his machines and it shows in the machines performance. He is great to work with and will answer any questions that you have about his units. If we need another unit in the future we will definitely purchase from Pete again.

Well I have had my truck mount for eight months now. I didn't want to
write anything about the unit until I had really used it for awhile on a
day to day basis. Now that I have used it, I just want to say what a great
machine it truly is! Constant super suction and constant super heat! Peter
is easy to work with and is very knowledgeable and passionate about these
truck mounts. To give an example of the customer service, I messed up my
pressure relief valve (due to my own fault) and called Peter to see if he
could help me out. He was at the post office an hour later overnighting me
the part I needed and even payed for shipping. Purchasing from Peter
has been a great experience for my business. Thanks Peter!
Just wanted to let you know how pleased I am with the purchase of the 47XL,as you know the timing worked out perfectly as I was getting ready to start a 60,000 square foot job. The heat has been outstanding and consistent even while using 300 feet of hose and a Rotovac which puts out a lot of water. The quality and workmanship you put into this custom build is second to none. Your machines are a excellent value and I think anybody considering purchasing a truck mount would be crazy spending $20,000 or more on a machine, while they can purchase a blue baron for a much better price without sacrificing quality or workmanship.
Just want to let you know the machine is working great going on 4 months of operation with our new Blue Baron 47XL. The heat and suction is outstanding. Machine really holds for the big carpet and tile jobs. Heat is maintained at the higher pressure for tile jobs. We get many compliment on how clean the room is after we have completed the job especially how fast the carpet dries.
I purchased the heat Exchanger from Pete and I couldn't say this is one of the best Heat exchangers I have ever used . I installing my heat exchanger to a kolher 25 hp engine and I can say my water temperature is around 200°F plus in less than 5 Minutes of using my carpet truck mount . It's made from 100% stainless steel heavy-duty built to last. I took a look inside the heat exchanger from one of the openings from the exhaust side and you can see the stainless steel tubing inside heat exchanger so that your water temperature could heat up quicker . I clean Carpets that are from Apartments restaurants with heavy grease and I could say that this heat exchanger made a lot a difference in my new cleaning technique. Since my water is hotter I can use less solution that saves me money. I would recommend n e one to get this heat exchanger stop looking around and just buy this one you will be very happy with the design . Thank you Pete once again for creating such a good heat exchanger you had made a customer very happy and I will gladly come back again .

I have received my axis point heat exchanger and with some expected fab work it works as expected. Pete is a good guy to deal with and knowledgeable about what he he sells. I converted a CHEM-TEX truck mount to his heat exchanger. I had no luck with Chem -Tex , they are metal to metal construction and I had them tig welded many times due to vibration. Chem-tex is a very poor design. We are getting good heat now with the axis point heat exchanger . Customer service is every thing when you are dealing with a small company. That is why I try to deal with independent businessmen. After all I'm a small business . Also his warrantee is simple and to the point no small print . I called Pete many times and he was always available for questions. Thanks Pete!

Hey Pete, so the heat exchanger works great! At only 1500 rpm I can maintain 250 degrees at 900psi with a RX20 keyed wide open (no dry passes) I usually run the thing at 1300 and it won't go below 220!
Pete, the Axis Point Prochem After Market Heat Exchangers for the Legend SE & Performer 405, were a perfect fit and so far no complaints from my Customers.

Man that's really cool normally it takes diesel or propane to get that kind of heat. I had a power clean Genesis that had two Heat exchangers it the best I could ever hit was high 180s in the summer you could see 190 200 if it was a100 out but rolling steam was a rare thing we had to add propane heater that machine is long gone thank goodness

Name: Thomas Richard Jefferies
I purchased the 47xl from blue baron in February 2017. So here we are well over a year later. Our company mainly works on commercial premises with some residential work. Over the years we have used countless other brand machines and always found heat loss a problem. Since buying the 47xl this has not been a problem. We normally set the machine at 250 degrees. And it never drops below 220. That small a drop in temperature, I have never seen with any other machines. Due to the high level of suction from the blower unit and the high temperatures we are finding drying time quicker than ever experienced. Giving us excellent feedback from customers as they have so little down time. We recently cleaned a 7 story hotel and expected to have to use a portable machine certainly on the 6 and 7th story due to the sheer height. However tested the 47xl and although did have heat loss at the wand ( due to having over 450 ft of pipe running) it still gave an excellent job that easily compared to our portable machine. In terms reliability we have had no issues whatsoever. All we do is regular routine maintenance. The machine is all original even on original belts.
I would highly recommend this machine to all.
As for the company themselves. I found Peter to be be superb. Very professional, knowledgeable and kept me updated throughout the build.
These are not of the shelf machines, these are custom built, high quality professional equipment. I would certainly recommend having the dual electrical outlet as we did so we can run the pump on the fresh water tank (when there's no nearby faucet) and the waste water pump out ( saves having to shut down to drain the waste water).

We ordered our 1st Blue Baron machine from Pete Garland in December, 2016. He explained that he was making changes in his design and that we probably would not get the machine for 6 to 8 weeks. I know this seems like a long time, but it certainly was worth the wait. We received delivery the last week of January, 2017 and self installed the machine using our old White Magic recovery tank. We have now been using our Red Baron daily for 15 mos. and have spent only $6.00 on repairs, and that was a hose crimp. I certainly would recommend Pete and Red Baron to anyone and would make the same purchase again. By the way, one week of delivery delay was by the trucking co. Old Dominion. They put the machine on the wrong truck in Florida. It went to the Pa. terminal and then back to Tennessee. Thanks Pete Garland for your service and a great machine.
