Can anyone recommend a good pressure washer hot box to get?
Donny are you there
Anyhow I'm in a bit of a dilemma at the mo as bid on one on fleebay and won one which looks like this http://equip2clean.co.uk/pressure-washer/burner/lavor-volcano-hot-box-heat-exchanger-boiler.html
It's a lavor volcano hotbox so say like new hardly used for £450 which was great bargain I thought as are over a grand to buy new. However the only problem is I did not take much notice of the location so looks like I have a bit of a trek on me hands to pick it up as is 390 miles away from me in Kilmarnock, East Ayrshire....Oops!
Alternatively can anyone recommend a courier service that is not going to cost me my life savings to collect and deliver it for me?
check these out mate thats who i use when need a courier http://www.parcel2go.com/ id stay clear of my hermes on here tho as iv used them 3 times and had issues with them twice. ps i always blag the weights and dimesions a little aswell to drop the price and never had any issues with it
cheers Midlands_Cleaners but they still want silly money
anyone else I could try?
Well it looks like I'm off to sunny Scotland Tues/Wed if I can't find a reasonable cost courier by then.
Going to take the oldest lad so we can share in the driving and just maybe have a wee bit of fun while we are at it. Any excuse to get away for the night from the little women sounds a good plan to me
Just noticed this, good man, a great deal that, and a good bit off kit too
Many thanks Donny as that's very reassuring to know
I'm finally going hot yeeha!
I've a nice little stone cleaning project lined up for it too as the chap wants one of his outbildings stone walls cleaned as is being converted into a dwelling.
Donny do you think steam cleaning alone will get rid of the reddish decolourisation on this type of stonework as the outbuilding in question looks similar?
Depends on the brick, it could be oxidation which is hard tae shift without chems, before doing job get some Chloras, try a wee corner at full strength from a wee garden sprayer bottle , try another thinned 50/50 with water , and try a wee blast off the pressure washer with the hot box on its own, if you decide it needs chloras first hose an area off wall too get it wet , spray the chloras on then leave for about half an hour , then pressure wash off, remember tae wear eye protection good luck , hopefully just needs a straight hot clean
