"The NXT DryVac machine is doing great, and we've had it running all day long today - it is not as hot as the old one we had. With the old vacuum the room would get really hot, with this one the room is just warm but not as bad as the old one. And it doesn't make as much noise. Great addition to the office, thank you very much!"
