    How bout an upgrade?

    Well i've been getting busy enough to try and upgrade my system.

    Currently I have a small setup. Alkota Hot water 4355H (4gpm 3500psi.) with a 400gal tank.

    I have some buyers for it, and was looking at something like this.

    While it has no hot water(I can add it later), is it an upgrade?

    Any other sugestions??

    I've been only doing commercial flat work, and a occasional building wash.

    Thanks!

    I looked at that same setup a couple of weeks ago. From Palm Beach County down to Broward County I saw a few good hot water units for sale. Thats what I would look for if I were you. Those pumps are rated for 11.2gpm at 2000 psi. I wouldnt touch concrete with that much pressure. Its inadequate IMO.
    If your doing alot of commercial flatwork you need hot water with the proper amount of pressure.
    If your mainly doing residential house washes then its a no-brainer. That setup would be perfect.
    2 machines are better then 1 obviously but not those 2 in that ad for what your doing.
    My 2 cents.

    If you get those units go get some belt guards thats very dangerous to run on an open trailer like that with belts exposed.That looks like a good deal you could replace one of the pumps for a 8 gpms @ 3600 psi and you would have one machine for houses and one for concrete or something that needed more psi?

    Yeah mostly needed for cleaning concrete. 2000 would be low.
