    Probably paths and driveways, easy ones, retaining walls, see what happens, if I get 100 hrs out of it then i'll be happy.

    If your going to be doing this sort of thing you really need to run a surface cleaner otherwise it's going to be painful. .also i have done a course on chemicals and concrete cleaning..i highly recommend learning about downstream injection and chemicals and ratios. Degressers and all
    You can clean driveways and get better results than using high pressure with chemicals etc.
    Too get professional results using a $300 machine im not sure

    It's usually how many litres per minute that counts the most (flow rate),the closer or more you can get to 15Lts per minute the better the machine is and the easier it copes with different tasks.

    Yeah, I had a look at them, too small and pretty basic, ok for trucks, or home/ farm, occasional use, so i'll pass it up.

    Having just bought one (electric JetUSA) have been doing some research on maintenance, a lot of advice on using 'pump saver' when the pressure sprayer is not being used for a while, does anybody use this or similar?
