Petrol pressure washers

I’m looking for some advice on what petrol pressure washer is good for using with a 18 inch whirlaway surface cleaner. 

I have a 3600psi washer but not sure if the litres per minute Is good enough as I have to move the surface cleaner very slowly to avoid leaving swirls.

anyone know a good machine that doesn’t cost a fortune?

  • You may have the wrong nozzles fitted... what's the water output of the pump? Did it all come as a package?

    • Not sure what water output is. I bought the washer ages ago but recently bought the surface cleaner.

       

      • Figure out the  nozzles, and call a supplier such as Rutland Pumps to order the right ones. 

        • Why would the whirlaway come with wrong nozzles? Surely the ones that came with it are the right ones?

          could I have put them on wrong? 

          • Nozzles have to be matched to your machine output, plus slightly wider ones tend to work better than very narrow ones, although they won't clean the joints quite as deeply. 

            • Cheers dan. I didn’t even know there was different nozzles. 

              The wider spray ones sound like they could be good. I’ll order some and give them a go.

    With a whirl a way a ordinary tap can not feed enough water. You need to fill a receptacle. I use a 245 litre bin which I fill before starting and my pressure washer draws the water from it and returns the water it is not using.

    i get all my kit from dual pumps you will find them online and are knowledgeable and give good advice 

    • Yes I do the same. I fill bin then draw water ffom

      bin.

      ill look online for dual pumps
