    Know it's been done plenty in the past but looking to purchase a petrol power washer.

    Any recommendations appreciated. What size would I need and what sort of cost
    TIA

    It was 850 or so all in that time. But you can haggle with with shop still tho.

    I've a "volmac power washer" 3600psi too it's grand I take it out to wash down slats when it is running at full stream its good, only issues I have with it it 1.sometimes takes a while to get going(it needs to be primed for a bit longer then it used to take)

    2.Ideally for slats if there was more water flowing out of it it would be a beast

    Im looking to get a sandblasting attachment to it, not sure if the wand/gun is standard size to fit a sandblasting want onto it

    Defo can't complain with mine, it never got much love, but has never failed to run.
    Didn't know there was sand blast attachments. Must check that out.

    You can change the fitting where hose connects to power washer for a bigger one to allow less restriction.

    You could also get an adjustable jet nozzle and adjust it to suit you.
