    Hi everyone been a few weeks since I've been in here, I've been looking in to buying a pressure washer to add on to my other cleaning services that I offer, is 12lpm a no go to start up for drives and patios? Just don't know what one to buy it doing my nut in lol.
    I was looking at these but just wanted to know if there ok or if there's better for the money or it's probably not enough money for a good pressure washer? Any advice would be great TIA[​IMG] [​IMG]

    It will do the job Neil, but try and stretch to a 15lpm one,

    You will soon be pining for a faster flow rate if you go for the 12lpm,

    Having said that, if it's only occasional jobs you'll be doing then the 12 will suffice I'm sure, fine for 1 job a month, anything more and you'll start to want 15lpm or even 21lpm


    Ps, they are jetmac machines your seeing on eBay, good starter machines, check out his website jetmac.co.uk at the loncin 15lpm machines

    And would I need to buy more equipment to go with it or can I crack on straight away?

    You need a turbo nozzle it's a must have, then a black nozzle, forget the degree but you can use it as a broom.

    12 will work but I agree with above 15 will be better, I went from a 12 to a 21 and the difference is incredible.

    Would also recommend getting as much hose as you can, keep having to move is a real pain in the ass.

    I'll take a look for you tomorrow but if you have a budget like that you can get a real good set up.

    Love pressure washing.
