It is massive - you would need to fit a return to tank, too big to start off with.

 

Probably around 54LPM 

 

Ha Ha ok. I just seen the everything altogether. looks a good buy.

 

Is that something you work your way up to? That just looks perfect for what im looking for. A trailer, a pressure washer and a hose reel all in one. Its perfect. AND cheaper!

Just type in diesel pressure washers on ebay - there's another trailer mount further down at £510 at the moment, big rough but you can tidy them up - this ones probably a better buy because it has the lances and FSC.

 

over 30LPM is hard work, over 40 LPM is a massive physical workout, pressure washing with 54LPM would destroy your upper body but if you could cope with it you'd be JasonHenchD

it's only an example, it wouldn't really work, it's only for drains where it feeds itself down the channel. If you put a reducer on it and returned some of the flow then you could have a 25 - 54LPM machine, so you could knock out the worst drain blockage ever.

 

That thing would clear concrete from a drain channel.

If it were me I would ring a pressure washer servicing company and give them the link to the machine and tell them what you want to do.

 

If they said it could be done I would give them the job and expect a bill into the £100's.

 

It's not an effective way of buying what you need, others come up all the time.

 

What you would be doing is bypassing around 25 - 30LPM of water back to tank (pointless) on the hope you needed to use 54LPM at some point.

 

On residential you may need 25 -30LPM at the most, remember the water supply has to keep up with the machine or you will drain the tank then be waiting.

Wirral external cleaning - as has been said - it future proofs your service, shows you bigger than one service and you can work the website for a page for each service.

 

You just need to get on top and understand search terms and manipulating them within the website - sounds hard work but it isn't and should only take up ten minutes every three or four days.

no I don't need that phrase, I'm just thinking of a brandable name that easily rolls of the tongue and is easy to remember. 

 

Your business is easy to remember and rolls of the tongue.

 

If you say each one out loud which one is the easiest to remember and say out loud....

 

I tend to overthink things like this

That's my last name hyphenated - fortunate!!

 

I agree about how the name is remembered is important, too long and people won't type it out or will forget it.

 

You aren't going to offer a national service, it is going to be regional, your region is the wirral, it will be a cleaning service within the boundary of the region (at least until you get established).

 

You're overcomplicating it.

 

Wirral Cleaning Services - just get it bought!

How old are you Jason?

 

If you passed your test after September 1997 you will only have 3.5 tonne on your license.

 

To tow a trailer you will have to take a trailer test to tow, whether that is a caravan, trailer or anything else.

 

I highlight this because when you're trying to back into a residential cul de sac with that and you haven't done it before you will go out of your mind with oversteer because it will have the turning circle of one of the Cunard line.

 

Nothing up with the set up but the machine is only 15LPM & it will not clean as effectively as other machines.

 

For that money I could put you a system together in a closed trailer, with machine and everything you need, pushing out at least 21LPM.

Wind O - I very nearly just bought it as well

So a trailer is out of the window unless I take a test?

I passed my test late 97 and when I needed trailers yes I did need to do one.

Remember the momentum - you want to offer the service, this has the potential to be the solution, pass your test and carry on!

This was said to me when I'd just started, by a local farmer -

 

'Lad you get nothing for nothing' - change your thinking - it's an investment.

I visited the hospital for some results the other day, they weren't bad bad but there is a need to look at how I want to get through the next decade and some until retirement.

 

I could sit with my lot and carry on, feel sorry for myself and be a woe is me 'princess' or I can put stuff in place to make this period easier.

 

I'm going to invest now to build something that isn't a physical service. When I say invest that will be my time setting up two websites for completely separate services with a nominal investment on equipment. These are low cost set ups starting in the New Year to have time to build income by the time I hit mid 50's.

 

I'm investing now to make the future what I want it to be - can you see what I'm saying?

 

Is there another option??

Do you mean your getting off the tools and working on a business instead of in it?

I'm carrying on for the next couple of years but in that time putting two other services together, not cleaning related or physically demanding, that might not give me the same financial reward but will give an easier income.

 

From my perspective the investment cannot be wasted because I have a goal to achieve and if I don't make the effort it could have bigger consequences than being skint

 

If you were looking through my eyes, rather than yours, at setting up a pressure washing service I wouldn't be inhibited by set up costs, you can't change them, the trailer test is a cost (if you cannot see another way round it you have to pay it to achieve your goal), I can see where I need to be in 12 months time, in three years time and 5 years time.

 

Is there a difference between you and me - confidence, that's all.

I agree with you. I've already accepted the fact that if I don't find a way of not needing a trailer I am going to do the trailer test at an unexpected cost of about £500 - £600. I have no choice. If this is what I am going to be doing I have to do it.

 

I can't be lifting a 60 - 100 kg pressure washer in and out the back of my truck, my back wont thank for for it. unless I can get ramps that will go into the back of the truck...

 

I am curious to know what your new business are going to be.

You shouldn’t need to take a separate test if passed in 2008 you have to take a test now if the trailer will be over 750  kg it’s just another way to get more money out of you !!!! I did my class one have when I was 21 now you have to do your class two first drive fir a couple of years on ridged  before you can take the now called c&e group for artics again it’s just a rip off

I think i read earlier - if the combined weight of the vehicle and the trailer exceeds 3500kg you have to take the trailer test.

 

here is an excerpt - 

 

"A full car licence already lets you tow trailers weighing no more than 750kg. You can also tow heavier trailers with a car as long as the total weight of vehicle and trailer isn’t more than 3,500kg."

 

source - https://www.gov.uk/towing-rules

 

I think my truck is about 3 tons. That leaves 500 KG for a trailer?

If you took your test before a certain date not sure what the date is that doesn’t apply , when I took my car test it let me drive up to 7:5 ton on a car licence . Have a look on the dvla site that should have some info ,or talk to a driving instructor they should know .
