    Mate of mine runs Airlie Beach Pressure cleaning, don't think theres an Aldi up there yet but the majority of his leads is mouldy stuff as described, yo!!

    couldn't recommend highly enough the aussie pumps scud 400 if you are serious, its what I have and it is brilliant, cleans EVERYTHING, full duty cycle, 4000psi at the lance ...triple head big berti pump on a Honda motor ...but luxury comes at a cost :\ in saying that, ive picked up a lot of regular jobs doing pressure washing and picked up a few gardens/lawns over other contractors for having a pressure washer too ...each to their own
    I dont break things ...I just use them beyond their operational limitations

    X2

    We had aussie pumps and a previous company I worked for. Awesome machines, great warranty and australian assembled (pump internals from Italy i believe)

    get a turbo head and an aussie spinner. The turbo head and Aussie spinner will make you the money/save time and give the best results.

    Nothing worse than seeing where some beer bob has got the kartcher and scrawled lines everywhere while "cleaning"

    Mate could you post a picture, Where did you buy it?? A few years ago I bought the aussie pumps one with the blue frame, 13hp Honda got it off a bloke who cleaned his driveway twice with it, paid him $1000 bargain. It sat in the shed for a while and I needed some cash so stupid me sold it, I got more than I paid for it, but now I am kicking myself bigtime I wish I had it back. I have one the same as redeye which is ok , but I would like to do some bigger jobs

    bigger is always better, remember the more psi you run, the longer your hose can be which means less moving the machine around. which can be a PITA at times

    lol true, how much was the scud? we picked up the pair of predators with turbo nozzle, the floor cleaner things and 50m of hose and they worked out around 6k each. We did trade in our old machine tho and they had some super special going on at the time.
