Our primary business is commercial flatwork, shopping centers, strip malls, etc. We started off with a 7 x 14 enclosed trailer with one 8 GPM / 3500 PSI machine and a 275 gallon water tank. After picking up more and more work we realized we needed a much better setup to keep up with the work.
We recently designed a 24’ trailer that much better meets our current needs.
2 - 8 GPM / 3500 PSI Machines
2 - 200’ Pressure hose reels*. One for each machine. (one off the front and one off the back)
1 - 1000 Gallon water tank
1 - 275’ Garden hose reel (3/4 hose)
2 - 36" surface cleaners (soon to be mounted on the trailer)
2 - 30 Gallon drums of soap for downstream
1 - 5’ job box for wands and everything else
and most importantly…
1 -Porta Potty (with a dump valve and hose for easy emptying into a sewer)… nothing worse than no bathroom at 3AM.
We use 12v electric reels to expedite our cleanup time at the end of a job (and moves from one area to the next)
We also built 1/2" bypasses for the DS injectors so we do not lose flow and can still use our adjustable wands to rinse.
*On our reels we run 175’ of 1/2 pressure hose to prevent massive pressure loss (which we would see with 8 GPM machines) and a 25’ whip at the end of 3/8 so we can still easily handle the wands and surface cleaners.
I learned a lot from these forums, and a lot of that knowledge went into this trailer build. If anyone has any questions or wants more detailed pictures I am happy to share.
