Hi, I see jetmac now have Briggs & Stratton pw’s, as the price is cheaper than the Honda’s just wondered if it would be a good purchase or stick to Honda, I’m looking at a side line from windows hence not a daily use machine, I’m interested in the 14hp 21lpm with the 30 meter hose reel attached?

 

 

I have both the Briggs and Stratton is a far superior machine , quite, uses less fuel than the Honda  and gives an accurate 21 ltr the Honda doesn’t , I know this will be a controversial comment but it’s what I found the Honda will struggle to produce that I have sold the Honda now but it was no ware near as good

Yes I’ve 1 but very rarely used. My advice is don’t leave it in a shed to get frost damage. The bolts sheared on mine

Just received my Briggs & Stratton from Jetmac, delivered quick as hell & as for my early opinion on it... what a beast, so much power & grunt! Very pleased with my purchase from Terry 👍

i got a loncin off jetmac around 4 years ago,    used it for 1 year then sold it for the price i paid, all impressed with machine.     i gave it up as an add on,  but i would get another one from terry if i started pw again,   price wise     brilliant.        

why pay over a £1000  for a pw         it may not take off as much as you think it will,      most expect you to be cheap,      they expect a driveway to be cleaned for around £50   do your homework,       only get one if you get enquieries , you may get no work at all,  pw  left in shed

What does the 202 mean on an interpump? Mine says rs500 on it. Will be using my twin head turbo nozzle on Friday, will let you know if it makes a difference from my single head turbo nozzle.

Ws 202 refers to model of pump 

rs 500 is model of gearbox 

twin headed turbo nozzle - a bit like watering the garden with 2 hoses off same tap in other words same water but divided in 2 

cant see how it’s any better than 1 hose off same tap in other words 2 turbos on same lance can’t be really any better

than 1 when on same lance - machine etc

Using it on Friday so hopefully all good. Had to remove turbo nozzles to fit them and they didn't want to come off because they had put Loctite 577 on the threads. After I was finished the girl at Rutland told me I should have used a hairdryer to heat it up and loosen the Loctite paste. Going to buy Loctite tomorrow because I need to reline the handle and cant get it tight where it should be. I also fit my lances with quick release fittings.

Used my twin turbo and it was great, only needed half the time to do the job. Obviously it half's the water quantity but if its not stubborn dirt then its a no brainer. One of those things that we try and see how it goes. For me it worked fine and will always be using it in the future. :1f609:
