Portable Pressure Washer Setup
When starting a pressure washing business, many people chose to begin with a portable unit. So in this portable pressure washer setup post, we offer a video and detailed, expert advice. Many ask if a 2-3 Gallon Per Minute machine good enough to start with? You can certainly start with any unit you choose, but our recommendation is always the Mad Max belt drive 4 Gallon Per Minute portable pressure washer. So to help those of you just starting out, here’s what we can offer. We walk through an unboxing and set up for this great starter machine.
MAD MAX PORTABLE PRESSURE WASHER
This unit is a 3500 psi machine and is ideal for a limited budget. So let this be the minimum machine you would start out with. While you can get some cheaper machines at a home improvement store, this unit will last much longer. Keep in mind that home improvement store options are not designed for everyday, commercial use. They are designed to be used by one homeowner very rarely. But the Mad Max is an industrial grade, professional model designed with those in this business in mind.
PORTABLE PRESSURE WASHER HOSE REEL MOUNT
One great option that we recommend is to include the hose reel mount. Because it has wheels, it easily rolls in and out of a truck or van and moves around easily on a job site. I got my start on this exact type of machine 37 years ago that hauled and roll in and out of with a pick up truck. As your business grows requiring upgrade to a second machine, this will still come in handy as a spare or as a second unit on the job on to do a second job at the same time.
This unit comes with great accessories such as a gun, a chrome plated wand, and connectors. Of course, you also get the hose and tips. We recommend using sealant and thread tape on all your connections, but this will be a separate purchase. If you intend to downstream with this unit, you would want to purchase the JROD nozzle kit. Don’t miss any part of the video because we provide detailed set up instructions too extensive to go into on this post.
