need new pressuer washer

im getting closer to needing a pressure washer and i need between 3500-500 psi..ill do mostly sidewalks and dumpster pads, etc. Im looking for one that will also pick up the dirty water ( or is that an accessory ill need?)

You may get some advice pointing you to a site that sells primarily to homeowners or offers price above customer service, but professional-to-professional, it's advisable to seek out someone that can guide you and not sell you everything under the sun. There is only one company I know that does that and can also offer you the contractor grade chemicals you need and that is www.pressuretek.com . To boot, Pressure-Tek's prices are awesome. Even custom, one-off rigs like I am having built are reasonably priced.

Though I am hardly an expert on this subject as of yet, I could show ya the model I purchased: http://sunbrite.stores.yahoo.net/blknmo4behic.html

I will strictly use it for house washing until I get a hotbox for it and a spinner for flat work. Having tested it out, it works just fine for now.

I do really need to get my hose reel installed in my van though. The 50 footer was not that big of an issue. The 100' on the other hand was a total pain to wrestle with.

UPDATE: Screw Sunbrite Supply. The owner is an arrogant asshat.

Anyway.... if you are looking to service dumpster pads, you will want a hot water pressure washer. PSI is not that much of an issue, but you may want something at around 3k PSI. As I am sure you know, you will want the hot water to break down the grease/oil on the dumpster pad.

Beyond that, its actually possible build your own recovery (water reclamation) equipment. Pretty simple really.
