SHOOTER TIPS

SHOOTER TIPS

One of the newer products we now offer at Doug Rucker store are pressure washing shooter tips.  The sling shot shooter tip is designed to help you reach heights of 30-40 feet without the use of a ladder.  The purpose of these are for soft washing using either downstream via a pressure washer or a dedicated pump like the Kingslinger.  So for pressure washers we have them in 2-3GPM, 4-7GPM or 8-10GPM.

SHOOTER TIPS VISUAL DEMONSTRATION

In the video below, we provide both pictures and video footage of the shooter tips in action.  The 8-10GPM pressure washer tip provides spray up to at least four stories with no wind present.  This is ideal for cleaning larger homes, hotels, apartment complexes, commercial buildings and so forth.

KINGSLINGER SOFT WASH SYSTEM

The Kingslinger Soft Wash System is what we use frequently with an 0020 nozzle.  But we also provide video using the sling shot 2-3 GPM.  However, we prefer the 0020 nozzle over the sling shot for the air diaphragm pump.  There is very little difference, although I can sense a slight better distance from the 0020 nozzle.  The sling shot shooter tip does not come with the quarter inch.  You will need to order this separately if needed.  These awesome nozzles are priced just right!

WEBSITE SERVICE

If you are new to the pressure washing industry, one of the first things you will need is a website.  Consider the website service we provide only for the pressure washing service industry.  And here’s some GREAT DEALS too!

KINGSLINGER COMPRESSOR

KINGSLINGER COMPRESSOR

For those just starting out in the pressure washing industry, you might be using an air compressor for the very first time.  So we want to take some time to explain some of the mechanics of the Kingslinger Compressor.  So by defining various parts and demonstrating how it all works together, we hope to enhance your experience.  There is an “unloader valve” which controls the pressure going to the tanks and then to whatever tools are in use.  Always make sure the unloader valve is in the up position when starting the machine.  Then turn it down after starting so that pressure build up can begin in the air compressor.

AIR COMPRESSOR GAUGES AND HOSE

We use a quick coupler to connect the hose to the system near the gauges.  There are two different gauges.  One is the reading for pressure in the barrels of the Kingslinger Compressor.  The other is for reading the pressure going to the tool that is in use.  This would typically be the 10 Gallon per minute air diaphragm pump.  This gauge should never exceed 90 psi.  Use the adjustment knob to reach the level of pressure you desire.  Exceeding 90 psi is possible and will result in greater distance, but the risk is causing damage to the pump.  In addition, this unit has a fuel pump which will allow running fuel from an auxiliary tank.  Otherwise, the smaller tank of the unit means you have to fill the tank with gas more often.

BASIC OPERATIONS

Of course, always make sure you have gas and oil before starting the KINGSLINGER COMPRESSOR.  When the unit arrives brand new, it does not contain oil.  One quart of cheap 10W30 oil will be included with the shipment.  However, we strongly recommend using a better grade oil found here so that the machine will last much longer.  The oil will need to be changed less frequently and you will surely save money over the long run.  Make sure the choke is out, the unloader valve is up, and it should start right up on your first or second pull. Once it’s started and running, choke goes back in and unloader goes back down.  Holding your finger on the stop button will bring the machine to a complete stop.  If you are just starting your business and need website assistance, consider this as an option.

KINGSLINGER DISTANCE

KINGSLINGER DISTANCE

Many potential customers inquire about Kingslinger Distance through the Doug Rucker Store.  The Kingslinger Soft Wash System can be connected to a 5 GPM or 10 GPM pressure washer.  There are options with the Kingslinger such as with or without the compressor.  Also, hose or hose reel options can be considered.  One of the variables to evaluate when considering  any soft wash system is distance.  We provide a video demonstration of with a measuring wheel.  This allows you to see what you’re actually getting in terms of distance.  Here is more information when considering pressure washing start up business equipment.

KINGSLINGER DISTANCE VIDEO DEMO

KINGSLINGER DISTANCE 45 Feet

Upon measuring in no wind conditions, we were able to get to approximately 45 feet.  This was while using an 0020 nozzle, and then an 0040 nozzle.  Adjusting the ball valve vertically will obviously affect KINGSLINGER DISTANCE.   This is extremely handy especially for roof cleaning projects.  Some distance will be lost from the ground when cleaning straight up on vertical walls.  Our estimate would be around 2 feet.  Wind will also be a factor for distance with Kingslinger, or for any soft wash system in use.  We also discuss in detail the importance of evaluating the actual dedicated pump for any product you are considering.

KINGSLINGER GF VALVES

Another option available is GF valves, which we have found to help improve flow.  You can choose between the GF or Pentair valve system.  The three valve system allows you to control the mix for water, bleach, and any other cleaning solution you might be using.  Regardless of the mix ratio or detergents used, you can still count on approximately 45 feet for KINGSLINGER DISTANCE.  There are several more Kingslinger product videos available on the product website at the bottom that might interest you as well.
