        I have 2 small electric jetters

        #1 a liquid laser 2200 PSI at pump much less at nozzle 20 AMP3 piston pump I use this in commercial applications.

        #2 a Viking 1600 PSI I think home use. 2 piston pump. 15 AMP



        I also have been looking at the AR610 mush more compact

          A 2 hp electric pressure washer with a cat pump on it. MTM and Landa both sell them. If you really wanted a "jetter" I would suggest the gorlitz 1500. Used mine maybe 15 times since I got it 2 months ago and plug it into the washer receptacle and have never tripped a breaker.

              I would recommend it. Ace Sewer uses it and that's enough of a recommendation for me. The gorlitz I mentioned also pulls 19 amps.

                Ace uses the AR 610. The last time I spoke with him he said the 630 was over kill and a bit too heavy for him. I also like the 610.

                  I have the ar 630, but 20 years ago it wasn't called that. Mine is good for 1500 psi. Its 2hp at 2.1 gpm and its heavy 50#.

                  Dont use it much now, but it still works fine. I made my own pulsation back then by drilling out a valve cap and installing a bypass valve to the inlet. Same machine as an older marco electric.

                    A little over a year ago I converted an AR 610 pressure washer. (Thank you Ace and Rick) It was the lowest cost option for me and it works great. I used Amazing Machinery for my first conversion kit.

                    I'm now upgrading my hose option to a 3/16" (running 1/8th now) and getting some new AquaMole nozzles.

                    Hope this helps.

                      Would i notice the difference between the ar610 1350 psi & the ar630 1500 psi ?
                      Both say they come with 1/4" hose is that a plus, i keep reading 3/16"

                        1/4" I.d. hose will be difficult with bends , 90s on 2" and impossible on 1.5".

                        The pressure drop on 3/16" hose is a minor difference at 100'.

                        1/8" only if all else fails.

                          I was facing the same question, but after reading a few hours on this forum, you find that many people are troubled with popping breakers with the 630 because it's a 19amp pull. Thus they have to power it down to keep it running. So I don't think you get anything extra, plus you save a $100.00 in cost. That said, the 630 does have an option of being set up to run hot water. Different O-rings or something AR told me. They're based by me so I went to the plant when I got mine.

                            What they're most likely referring to is the hose for a spray wand. I would go for the ar630. For popping breakers, run an extention cord to the washing machine and you'll be fine.

                              This is a good option when doing a basement line in my neck of the woods, but most kitchens and bathrooms I work on the washer/dryer is in the basement pretty far away. So you will need a heavy gage extension cord to run the amps say 100'. In my case anyway.
