    Hi, I've added power washing to my business, I'm a wheelie bin cleaner. I use a Honda gx200/ interpump @14 litres per min at 170 bar. I've done a few driveways patios etc and the customers are happy with the job I have done.
    I would like to speed up the time it takes to get the job done.
    My question is how much of difference is between 14 to a 15 litre or even the bigger 21 litre. It doesn't seem a lot between the 14 and 15 or is there?

    Cheers

    Semy

    Ok well your running prob at the max really for your engine
    Looking at gx340 for 15 litres
    And gx390 for 21lpm
    I did 3 drives in one day last week using 21lpm
    I have a very good 21lpm machine for sale hardly used

    Is there a massive difference between a 15 and 21 litre machine? I live in N.Ireland so a bit far to go for your machine lol

    Sorry to sidetrack Eviestevie , currently running 30M of hose on my PW. Would it make any difference if I went to 50 or 60M?

    21l/m and 200/250 bar and you will really notice a difference, 14l/m to 15l/m and you probably won't notice the difference.

    Why do you need so much hose?
