  1. Re: Joined 2 machines together, now one wont start.

    Hey Chad, I've had a similar problem lately with my 2 machines hooked together.

    I had to take my AR 5gpm pump off to get serviced and installed my 5.5gpm on my 13hp.

    I was running my 20hp Honda...

    Re: double machine dilemna...

    The YRL-50 13gpm has a 13/32" ball. It is the best. They are also the easiest gun to repair. Switch out the stainless steel ball with a ceramic ball, and buy extra springs when they break. Part #...

    Couldn't tell you. I have mine done locally. There's a rubber company only 2 miles down from my house.

    Re: double machine dilemna...

    I use 3 gallons of 12.5% bleach, 1-2 gallons detergent, top it off with water for a 7 gallon mix.

    8 gallon machines draw chemical very well with the right gun, nozzles, and injector.

    I use the...

    Re: double machine dilemna...

    I doubt it. He's running (2) 8gpms = 16gpms. I'm not far off from him, 8gpm + 5gpm = 13gpms.

    I can wash a house pretty close to that fast with two guys.

    I wash differently though, both guys...

    Re: double machine dilemna...

    Thanks William. I need to upgrade my hose reel.

    I'm using 1/2" manifolds reels with a 1/2" - 3/4" bushing on a 3/4" swivel.

    I'll have to get a 1" titan hose reel with 1" swivels.

    So I can...

    Re: double machine dilemna...

    Same here. I have a 335 gallon tank.

    I rarely run out of water because I upgraded my intake hose reel swivel from a 1/2" to a 3/4" swivel.

    The larger swivel will give you more water supply.

    Re: Double Machine questions ...

    I run 8gpm + 5gpm = 13gpm for concrete and for rinsing large commercial buildings.

    Apply chemical with the 8gpm, pressure wash with a Maxima 36" using 13gpm, and rinse with 13gpms.

    I designed them myself on www.buildasign.com

    Price depends on quantity, material, and size.

    Mine cost $200 for (10) single sided 24" x 36" corrugated plastic.

    Re: Anyone use the 36" Maxima SC?

    Yes, going from 28" to 36" is a huge difference, 65% more surface area.

    Pi X Radius Squared = Area of circle

    3.14159 X 14x14 = 616 sq.in.
    3.14159 X 18x18 = 1018 sq.in.

    1018/616 = 1.65

    Dan, you need to click on the link I posted earlier. #50,#60 nozzles are made in fan tips.

    Use 0060, 1560 for 9gpms and buy the YRL-50 13gpm blue gun.

    Re: double machine dilemna...

    Henry Bockman rinses with 20gpms of hot water for large commercial jobs.

    This much volume through a 3/8" hose you don't even need a nozzle, just a ball valve.

    Re: double machine dilemna...

    Dan, it's simple. Use 0060, 1560 nozzles for 9gpm.

    This will reduce your pressure down to 90psi and will allow you to draw chemical better.

    I use 0050, 1550 for 8gpm

    Re: machine ?

    Excellent choice William. I wish I had bought a Kohler back when I put together my 8gpm rig.

    I like the new 26-28hp Kohler EFI engine, that baby is a BEAST!!

    Re: Which pump?

    Yes, William is right. I push 13gpm through 200ft 3/8" hose with two machines. 20hp+13hp=33hp. There is some flow loss, but it still runs good.

    13gpms is pretty much maxing out what 3/8" hose can...

    No, just quick connects. Also important to have both pressure unloaders set the same pressure.
