The ECO 500 Extractor Cleans Cars and Trucks

In Hawaii, it may surprise people just how dirty vehicles can get. Constantly changing weather windward sides of the Islands can be quite damp and humid, followed immediately by bright sunshine. Some days, this goes back and forth all day long! Like everywhere else, enter kids and pets and you have some pretty challenging situations that can create unpleasant odors that reside in car upholstery and carpets.

At the 2012 National Auto Dealer Association (NADA) Convention, Chuck Furtado, General Manager at Hilo Kona Mazda/Subaru/ Hyundai Motors witnessed a product demonstration of the CFR ECO 500 recycling extractor. He was intrigued, to say the least. When he learned about CFR’s Ozone capabilities, he was “even more enticed to give the product a shot at our dealership, knowing that we deal with extremely stubborn odors residing in car upholstery, and these odors negatively impact our business.”

The result? “CFR’s Ozone machine FLAT OUT WORKS!” proclaims Furtado. “We use the ECO 500 paired with the Ozone Generator with nearly every car and truck on the lot. They have been absolutely fabulous!” What’s more, Chuck states that the CFR ECO 500 and Ozone Generator not only increase the cleanliness of Hilo’s vehicles, they increase the profitability of the used cars they sell. “And yes…it takes out even the worst, most overpowering smells.”


How Long Did CFR Need to Pay for Itself?

As for the ECO 500, Furtado feels that in the three short months that they have had the unit, it has already paid for itself. Plus, dry-times are so much faster compared to traditional extractors used in the past, due to CFR’s moisture-controlled recycling technology.
