The round ball black ones that never work and turn hard and never get any suction and make a huge mess? Or maybe the plastic one that makes a better musical instrument vs a plunger? Which one? All I know is the one pictured always stays soft, always has great suction, and always clears the bowl of water and has never let me down. If I lose one (which I always do, leave them on the job" they're only 1.99 to replace. I've yet to find one better but sure would like to hear what you think? Remember, we're talking plungers, don't get too excited about it!

              I keep a handfull of grout sponges on my truck and they come in a bucket with me for a bunch of reasons. They are great for spill/water management, cleaning up with a spray disinfectant/cleaner, grouting toilets in, annnnddd, after the toilet is flushed, I push into the trap a few times to get more down the trap. Then, I just use the grout sponge to dry the tank and the bowl by wringing it into a bucket. Very fast, very simple, don't have to worry about spillage if you're taking the toilet through the house. Of course, my hands need washing before I shake your hand or eat a sandwich... but I can't remember the last time I was really sick..

                I have drained the tank and then the bowl in order to pull toilet,
                I use this plunger and then the sponge for the last water, I agree with Rick
                I have opened more toilets with a plunger that other plumbers could not get open with a auger

                    I used to have a suction gun (pvc sucker) years ago but one of the guys left it some where now I just use a big sponge and a plastic tub...
                    HEY RICK I see you asked about the toilet cart... I don,t like them cause you cant do stairs/steps.. So I made one out of a hand cart ( just a longer metal plate on the bottom with a thins flange with closet buts welded on it.
                    But Now that I'm older I'm thinking about one of these: Check it out... it even lifts it off the flange for ya... way less back pain

                      That Toilet Kart looks pretty nice. Certainly easy on the back. What's the price I wonder, or better yet what would y'all be willing to pay for one is more important.

                      Just looked it up on tolietkart.com , $269 plus shipping. I day with a bad back is will cost you more than that.

                    rubber plunger head like shown in post 52 with a large air fitting and portable air tank fitted with 3/4 ball valve and hose.
                    compressed to 100 pounds
                    hold the plunger head snugly against he bowl and opening the ball valve blasts the water out fairly quickly.
                    and a sponge for the odd chance any water is left.

                    (think of a bead seater tank used in some garages to put a tire in a rim)
                    shooting the s*** is a lot more fun when you use hollow points (much more splatter)

                      I have a hydraulic lift cart I bought years ago at the trade show. Used it for years. But just too bulky to keep in the truck. It's nice as you can lift a toilet straight up and not spill the contents. Swap the wax, bolts and clean the caulking off without spillage. Just too much equipment for the once in a while use.

                          I use the Last Drop Suction Gun and no way I'm putting a sponge or rag in a toilet with $hit stains and put back in the truck. Even my putty knife gets cleaned before I store it away.

                            what do you do with your **** stained cables,cutter heads, gloves and rags? Do they ride on the roof?

                          All cables are left in the pipe, spun and rinsed several minutes before pulling them out. I don't have rags, blue shop towels and paper towels.

                            When pulling a toilet I vacuum the water out. I like putting down 3mil plastic, wrap the toilet with the plastic and tape all around to secure plastic to toilet and haul it away. Zero drips down the stairs.
