    I am looking to put together another washer and need some guidance on what I need to make the engine whole? I am looking at a Kohler 27 hp or a Robin Subaru 28 hp engine.

    Loss of pressure due to friction. How does it affect gpm?

    Ok. I know that there is a loss of psi due to hose length, gpm etc. I was always under the impression that you also lose flow. I have seen several threads and posts all over the place that say you don't lose flow, just psi. I am at a loss as to how this is possible. EXAMPLE: If I am running a...

    Northern tool engine clearance.

    Went into Northern Tool today and they had all the Honda display models on sale. The only one left was a Honda gx630 for $899. Don't know if they are doing that everywhere, but if they are, and you are looking for a new engine. They are all 25% off. I don't need another engine sitting around or...

    Coxreel Question.

    I got a coxreel competitor for one of my feed reels. I really like it so far and was thinking of getting another one for the high pressure side. It says max is 3000 psi. My machine is 2500 psi with 3000 spike. Just wondering if this will hold up? I like the way there is a groove on the manifold...

    Drone with 720p video. Is it worth it?

    Came across this drone and it is $600 cheaper than the 1080p. Would this be fine for making videos? I know nothing about resolution and stuff. This would be for youtube commercials and on my website. http://www.dronesden.com/shop/dji-phantom-fc40-sale/

    Roof snot is ridiculous!!!

    So I was filling my tank for tomorrow and I thought I would be smart, and I added a splash of roof snot in there, thinking it would mix as I drove. Big mistake. I was distracted for a minute and when I turned around, there was a three foot high solid column of soap suds coming out of the manway...

    Power of colors.

    Just wondering if someone has researched the use of colors in their marketing? I'm talking logo colors, truck wrap colors, the colors used in marketing. I see most pressure washing guys use blue and white. Lot's with the little drops of water in the background. I've used that myself and it...

    Does anyone know why this happens?

    I noticed whenever I do before and after pics of pavers, they appear to change color. This pic is a prime example. I did not edit or retouch this photo at all. It looks like the camera changes lighting and settings by itself. I don't like before and after pics where it is obvious that there is...

    Cleaning Canvas Awnings.

    Customer has two patio awnings that are green and dirty. Will a diluted mix with SH and laundry detergent do the trick here, or will that bleach out the fabric? Anybody with experience with this. I did an awning two weeks ago and used my regular HWM with no problems, but I think the material was...

    Pump and hose vibrating. Can't find problem.

    Yesterday I started up my washer, for my first driveway, and I noticed that the hose was vibrating slightly. I thought it was air in the hose. It stopped after a while and then came back. I noticed it at the next two houses. It sort of felt like the pump wasn't getting enough water. So today I...

    X-Jet to the rescue!!!

    Today I was trying to clean a pool enclosure, and I had to use 250 feet of hose to get to it. With the combination of longer hose and it was raining out, I couldn't get my usual mix to work. I was about to call it quits and go back to finish it tomorrow, when I decided to give my xjet(M5) a try...

    Check card compromised!

    Recently I had my check/debit card information stolen. I believe it was scanned at a local gas station. The culprits apparently made a dummy card and used it at a home depot a couple of hundred miles away. I confronted the clerk at the gas station, and she told me several people have complained...
