Your wish is my command !
13 horse motor powering 10 gpm Udor pump at 1400 psi. Rigged for 2 guns at 5 gpm each. Delevan 5.6 gpm chemical spray system. Has charging system, electric start and costs less than a 5.6 gpm hot water machine including hoses and reels. Built for van duty. Do you like it Mr ******? You could perform some VERY wet washes with this bear.

You seem to be infatuated with this guy. I guess hes got you hot and bothered. I hope you two makeup. I don't want to be on this forum in a tit fo tat with you so leave me out of it.

You must be happy about your accomplishment being able to save for such equipment after being in business for what 4 years. You should be, congrats to you. Its my understanding that you have six trucks you dont work in the field so who gets the baby. If you get the other five trucks pimped your going to have bragging rights. Professional residential contractors like me know better than to over spend on unnecessary equipment and think we can expand efficiently. You commercial guys have nice equipment.

That is a nice looking machine Ken. Direct drive cold water? I assume you put it together? And how many schekels did it set you back. What is the intended use, flatwork or roofs?

Doug, I'm not that talented. I had Bob Williamson from PressureTek build it for me. If you look close its actually not a direct drive as there is a reduction between the motor and the pump.

As far as duty its now sitting on a resi house wash truck. The way I am running the rig is as a two man unit. We did a quick wash of my house (2100 s/f) as a test run and the guys were done in 35 minutes. The options are also to:
spin a 28" surface cleaner for resi concrete with 10 gpm rinsing
one man house washing, one man roof cleaning, while one man keeps the grounds watered.

Starting a Pressure Washing Business is easy all you need is a HD card and $90 a month.

Pressure Washing Equipment

That setup looks very familiar Ken, I think I've seen it before.

It's certainly a nice rig. If I know you Ken, you didn't get that thing on a haste decision. I'm sure you crunched some numbers and did your homework before making that kind of decision, because that's what a professional pressure washing contractor that actually understands business would do.

I'm sure it will pay for itself in no time.

I used it this morning. (Yes, I still remember how to wash) Took a guy with me and we had a 3500 s/f house wash and 1100 s/f deck done in under four hours. I'm ordering two more from Bob next month.

Once you get past sitting at home waiting for someone to hit page 8 and find your website on Google, its neccessary to up your efficiency. Barry and Douglas, I know you guys can relate because you run real businesses.

Nice rig Ken. I could really use a set up like that. How would something like that set me back?

Question Hot Water Pressure Washer PRICING???

Anyone know a good starting price to get rid of a Hot Water Pressur Washer? My wife bought it thinking we could use it for our mobile detailing business, but we have since gone WATERLESS. It's been sitting in our garage taking up space. Purchased at Auction for $2000 and never used. It could use some work based on what PSI waterworks told me in Westminster, CA. Any advice would be helpfull. The unit has: 200gal tank, 18hp Kohler Engine, 120V Wayne Oil Burner system, 2 ReelCraft Reels with hoses, 5gal @3000psi, etc. You can see what I have so far on craigslist.com:
https://accounts.craigslist.org/post...39932702&db=lv

Any Advice would be helpfull. Thanks.

Not Sold Yet

Still haven't sold the unit yet. It's still taking up space in the garage. If I can get rid of it, my wife will let me get a new toy. I'm willing to negotiate a lower price if we can barter for something else in return. Maybe a street legal motorcycle or scooter. Someone make me an offer.
