Anyone like to start this topic of?
Ok I will start
Used a 7hp 3000 psi 8 lpm petrol pressure washer when first started which was good with a turbo but found it very slow on block pavers.
Now use a 14hp 3600 (variable) psi 15 lpm petrol pressure washer which is alot quicker on block pavers.
So hp, psi & flow rate does make a huge difference in working more productive.
ive got a 2800 psi petrol one 8lpm not the best but does the job only comes out about 1-2 times a month at the min thinking of getting a telescopic lance for it to use on gutter and fascia anyone done anything similar?
ive a 3600 psi 21lpm 14hp loncin washer ,its very powerfull and speeds up jobs,im using a telescopic lance i got from jetmac , they have an ebay shop i think it was around 150. one thing is dont blast to close as it can damage the soffit and guttering very easily , i normally only use it on detached houses and bigger houses as doing the small mid terrace ones can be done quicker by wfp and a chem
how long does it take you to do a 3 bed semi detached with it I vac the gutters first then just wan the lance to clean down to save time rather than using wfp
i spray on ubix 2000 and leave for 10 mins then a quick scrub with the wfp brush then a blast of the telescopic , time wise including the gutter vac can be from 2 and a half hours to 3 hours ,if its white upvc and its manky then obviously longer
1200w rac washer with circular patio cleaner adaptor.......
what spec washer are you using cns
I have 3 rotory surface cleaners whirlaway 18", Dirtdevil !8" & 14" but found no good using them on block pavers.
I've also got a 7m telescopic lance too but hardly ever use it as found it a nightmare to use as far to wippy and heavy.
Nice one,...That will be my next one to get to add to my collection as 21 lpm I've heard is a lot better than 15 lpm on some jobs
