      Flow Rate? 5gpm+

      Weight? Don't care

      Frame Material? Don't care

      Nozzles? Root ranger and warthog for big pipe and 6 nozzle ball nozzles along with spring style drop nozzles.

      Size? Footprint size is more important then height imo

      Built in Water Tank size? Whatever works but will have a garden hose to supplement water

      Fuel tank size? Run for 6 hrs straight+

      Hose Length? 150'

      Hose Diameter? 3/8-1/8

      Can't see your attachment. Would also want intergeral lifting attatchment. Be able to handle up to 6" pipe. Send me your prototype jetter and I'll give you and the forums some real world reviews of your products.

        Weight? under 225#

        Frame Material? high strength aluminum or stainless.

        Nozzles? rootranger higher flow with a good forward jet when needed.

        Size? not to exceeded 24'' in with and 36'' in length. not too top heavy. 4 good rolling wheel with a built in brake system.

        Built in Water Tank size? 10 gallon max.

        Fuel tank size? 5 gallons

        Hose Length? 200' of 3/8''

        Hose Diameter? 3/8'' or 5/16'' dual reel 1/4'' and 3/16'' for smaller lines. 1/8'' is too much pressure drop.

        as ben mentioned a good center point lifting eye.

        any chance of having a pump that could handle 150 degree water?

        also mine home made remote 4 channel valve is the best . this way you can work without a foot pedal or shut off if need be. great for large jetters. might not be too critical for 6 gpm as a foot pedal will still work fine.
