    The?Evopower?EPW275-14AR?Petrol Pressure Washer is a brand new pressure washer to the 2012?Evopower?range. It is a commercial grade machine, with a?14hp?Loncin?engine and?driving an Italian AR commercial triplex pump, producing?275 bar of pressure with a maximum flow rate of around 900?litres?per hour. Make no mistake about it, this is a serious piece of kit, capable of high quality cleaning and washing.
    As with all of the?Evopower?products in our range, the standard piece of equipment is the ever-reliable?Loncin?engine, a bomb proof engine that we rate so highly that we give it a 2-year guarantee. Also, on this model of the 2012 range of new pressure washers, there is a high quality Italian AR pump, which is extremely hard wearing and durable.
    Main Features:
    • 2-year Loncin Engine Guarantee2-year Loncin Engine Guarantee, available only through thepowersite
      Annovi Reverberi (AR) Italian-made Triplex Pump

    im tempted to purchase this washer , can get a good deal on price, mainly looking at pump spec Italian AR pump, heavy comercial grade pump. and washer spec, all in one, can also get an 18 inch FSC, can you in the know give me your views for use as a starter pack,
    EPW 275 AR14, from genpower , just google the model number, or on powersite.co.uk, ill be glad to hear your views, i can get it cheaper as a pack with the FSC,

    When I upgraded was going to get a Honda all singing and dancing washer but got a Loncin of ebay instead that happened to be like new only 3 months old for £500 inc a small fsc. Heard good things about jetmac the supplier also they where more than happy to transfer the rest of the warranty over to me. They offer first rate customer service too.

    OK so not the best spec washer out there but paid for itself within a week and still working well to this day.

    Have a look a jetmac on ebay as they do a wide range of washers even do big boy Honda driven washers too http://stores.ebay.co.uk/JETMAC-Systems?_trksid=p2047675.l2563

    someone mentioned the unloader valve is built in, which may cause problem.

    Jetmac and powersite seem to have the same Model pressure washers in, just a few ££ difference in price. ive emailed Terry @ jetmac if id be best having a outer bypass fitted as he can add one if needed. dont know how much difference.
    Smurf what model are you using now.

    Nothing wrong with that too get you going Johnny, dont worry too much about the unloader they very rarely go wrong , ive had my washers for 7 years now, ( all Honda) and no problems with unloaders ever, keep your filters clean and they woont go wrong Wouldnt bother with a FSC they are no use unless you hase at least 21lpm pump mine sits in the shed and comes out once or twice a year and even then i end up going over the job with a turbo nozzle usually i only keep it cos it cost me £400.Im looking at a Honda diesel 2 man pump next built onto a trailer with a water bowser :D

    cHEERS dONNY, Would you still sugest i get a outer bypass fitted, Terry from jetmac just explained why this would be the best option . keeping the pump cool and returning outer bypass is a second hose that runs from the pump so when u let go of the trigger and the machine goes into bypass rather than the water recirculating within the pump it passes out of the pump via the second hose back to the water tank / drum

    advantages are you get better pressure when machine is drawing water as compared to standard set up
    and its more healthy for the pump as pump is always getting frsh new cool water keeping pump cool and helping
    seals etc last longer
    id say this is a must, fitted free on one of his washers if ordered, good service

    yep i use Terry a lot, get an outer bypass, its essential in my opinion if your doing commercial work , especially roofs, also get an interpump if you can afford too its a very reliable pump.
