U.S. Products, announced that Douglas Woolfolk, Yuba City, CA, has won a brand new King Cobra 500 from a drawing at the recent Connections Convention held in Las Vegas, NV.

Woolfolk's name was randomly selected from a list of attendees, which primarily consisted of carpet cleaning professionals.

In the carpet cleaning business for almost ten years, Woolfolk says his son, who works for him, will benefit most from the machine. "It will help him pay his way through college," Woolfolk says. "This machine comes in handy and will serve us well."

The King Cobra 500 is one of the first portable extractors to earn the Seal of Approval certification from the Carpet and Rug Institute. The "500" has a three-stage vacuum system for improved moisture recovery, a built-in hose management system, a circuit locator, and it instantly heats water/solution to 212°F at the want tip.

"We had just planned to get away for a few days, go to the show, attend some seminars, and meet other carpet cleaners," says Woolfolk. "I never figured we'd be going home with a brand new extractor."
