Hey there fellas. I post very little, more of a reader and researcher. This winter I will be building an enclosed setup and getting rid of the open trailer. I am just wanting to get some opinions on a couple things. Let me give you a little background, I do very little house washing, almost no mold where I am. The majority of my work is calcium and rust removal on brick and concrete. I carry a lot of different chemicals at one time on the trailer, as well as media blasting material. I am wanting to expand some of my services to involve more commercial flat work. The majority of my stuff now is residential. I have a buffer tank but am going to upgrade to a much larger tank due to the fact that I have had to turn down numerous jobs since there is no water supply.
My main question is I currently just have a 5.5 cold washer machine. I will be adding an additional machine which is an 8gpm hot water. I am trying to figure out the best orientation for the machines and reels. Obviously water above axles, Chems and other stuff up front.
I could go barn doors on the back. In that case I would probably have stacked reels mounted to floor with both machines oriented somehow to the left of them.
Or I could go with a shelf running across horizontally in the rear that has hose reels mounted to it, and the machines underneath. If I did this it would be a ramp door. One big con in my mind is the foot print of the trailer gets much larger with ramp door.
Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
