I don't think that torik has been out long (12 months maybe) compared to a doff or the other one I can't remember what it's called now.

 

If that torik hotbox is like my volcano hotbox which it looks almost identical the diesel tank is moulded plastic and a crap design as it leaks when you go up and down ramps from the inlet filter hose feed opening from the tank to the burner.

Got to say though Smurf, if you are serious about cleaning jobs, drives, stonework decking etc etc then it does not seem too expensive compared to standard power washers (I do mean professional diesel ones) I was quite pleasantly surprise at how competitively priced it is.

I've noticed a few of the big boys have bought them now as like you say they are cheaper than pro washers but are just used for specific jobs.

I think if I went that route Smurf I would use it for every patio I do! :)

Downside It would be a very slow proccess compaired to using a pressure washers & rotary especially on large areas.

What pressure washer do you use a hotbox with?

 

At the end of the day these machines are just hot pressure washers, nothing particularly revolutionary.

It's a 21 lpm burner coils so if you run it with a very low spec washer like the electric ones they sell with them the temp would get just as hot.

So you could easily put together a system yourself then for a much cheaper price it seems.

I do not think that you can use standard lance and hose from electric pressure washers for super heated water

The hot water doesn't pass through the pressure washer pump it's heated after. Any hoses and lances could be sourced I imagine

It is not as easy as that as the have been designed to take extream heat.

I don't know of anywhere you could buy all the bits you woul need to build a safe reliable system.
