    i have a spare Honda gx390 washer sat in storage I don't use it often as its set up to take water from tap not from butt. Is it possible to set this up as a purpose built soft wash machine as in set it up with a chemical Inlet to take say hypo from a drum that will not run through pump? What do you reckon Eviestevie any links to products i can use please :thumbsdown: image.jpeg

    Softwashing is low pressure so you can control your chemical better so a trolley or a back pack is a good way to start I use both but recently brought a 125 lt trolley

    Willian's your machine is much more valuable than the trolley there not much to buy
    Stick with the washer get it jetted right
    The trolley is ok for domestic try using that on a commercial unit,cladding etc
    Slow and not enough flow
