Is this a good deal? Will everything here be helpful?
I know I should look at a higher CU system but this is about the level I can afford right now. I plan on starting residential and maybe slowly getting into commercial when I decide if this is the path for me.
Also, how do y’all handle reclaim? I recently came across a post that said it is illegal in all 50 states not to reclaim while cleaning on any surface a car drives or parks on.
What equipment would y’all recommend for a beginner?
Thank you squid,
I’ve seen you in other posts and are very informative. I am in my very early stages and not even close to go out and looking for work yet because I don’t have the equipment. I don’t want to invest a bunch of money and not get any work. Maybe I will tough it out with a 4gpm and if business is good in a year I will upgrade.
Also, what will do a better job faster. A 5.6gpm at 2800psi or a 4gpm at 4000psi? I ask because you didn’t mention psi in your previous post.
House washing we use 4 gpm machines and do three houses solo, or 5 with two guys per day. Now obviously a 7 gpm machine would be a little faster, I guess it depends on what your budget is and what market you want to get into. You can wash houses all day with.a 4gpm, LARGE concrete jobs not so much
You got to do what u can afford… I started out 4000psi 4 gpm did it for about 2 years last year went to 6000 psi Hot Water 8gpm. Love it do tell the difference but the 4gpm did the job fine.
Do what your money will let you… then move on up are my thoughts and you got everything u need with a cleaner, long wand hose…you will be ok
Side note. I bought my Skid unit karcher hds3205be heated unit for 3200$. It had just shy of 200 hours on it. It came with 300’ hose, reel, all the accessories. Just look around there are deals out there. I found mine one Facebook marketplace
