Late Model Prochem Quad Jet Glide PCQJ-A (alternate fit)



Towards the end of the Prochem Quad Jet’s production PMF had the head casted overseas which produced some variations that make the original GreenGlide not fit properly.

To the best of our knowledge there are 2500 of these “Alternate” wands in existence, which we figure is about 10 of the total of Quad Jets on planet earth.

We can send out 1/2 inch” section of each size Glide to help you determine what wand you have if you purchase a Glide first. (please return)

If your GreenGlide fits like the Glide in the photo below with the large gap under the wand lips, you have the older model wand

DO NOT FORCE FIT OR INSTALL THIS GLIDE WITHOUT WARMING IT UP IN BOILING WATER OR WITH A HEAT GUN. Go to the “resource” section on this site for installation instructions!



Slot Glides– The best choice for dirtier carpet that has debris in or on it and for cleaners who prefer some resistance or grab at the carpet to wand interface. Also, our Slots have recessed bridges so there are no lines left in the carpet when the glide is new. As the face of the Glide wears down the bridges can be recessed again with a knife, razor or Dremel tool.  FYI, 80% of our Glide sales are Slots.

Hole Glides- The easiest to push and the best choice for cleaners with back pain, elbow, wrist, and shoulder issues and for those wanting the quickest dry times. Holes are also great for cleaning area rugs on location as the rug won’t lift up as you clean the edges and corners.  Optimum for wool carpet and rugs. Dry soil removal prior to wet extraction is a must in most cases. The best choice for portable extractors too!

Hybrid Glides- Fits in between the two above, easier (some say much easier) to push than a Slot but dries slower than a Hole. Wands with large vacuum chambers such as Evolutions, SharpShooters, AW29s and the PMF Mach 12 &15 perform noticeably better with a Hybrid. Some debris can be extracted through the slot portion of the vacuum pattern, unlike our Hole pattern, but dry extraction is still recommended. This style leaves lines on some pile types and may need to be groomed after cleaning.
