    We used to rent those big v twin briggs motors. Good score for you keep the RPM's as low as possible to get the PSI you need.

      Cool.

      Do you have a hose reel setup already on another pressure washer.

      Got pics?

      I have a 13hp 3000psi 5gm jet, and I think my 3/8 hose is only rated for 4000psi.

      Although my pressure has only been hitting 1800-2000 psi lately.

          same pump i have on my 18 h.p. machine.

          there is no way to get 5 gpm @ 5000 from a 18hp. gas engine. math doesn't work.

            I was mistaken and had reposted the correct GPM and PSI

            5.6 GPM

                how do you do the math? i'm not putting my finger in your eye, but i don't understand. ace sewer posted a formula last year. hp = gpm x psi v .0005833. does that work? if not what is the formula? i know that is for a 100% efficient system, which in reality does not exist. do we have a huge power loss? i am planning on doing what appletondrain did, so i would like to know how to figure this out. thank you. breid

                  I'm not sure Ace's formula takes pressure loss from the hose into consideration. I'm sure more than one person has been tripped up buying nozzles sized for their pump output vurses the output at the nozzle end of the hose...

                    i believe those #'s are for an electric motor and not a gas engine.

                    the #'s that are realistic for gas is hp= gpm x psi / 1100.

                    so 5.6 x 3500 = 19,600

                    19,600/ 1100 =17.818 h.p

                    keep in mind that is the max h.p for an engine all out. doesn't take into account pressure loss from friction and h.p loss from altitude.

                    gas engines are approx 2/3 of an electric motor.

                      Re: my new score

                      it needs 13.4 EBHP Electric HP per specs
                      gas it needs 17 GPH gas HP

                      now this is for the best results
