great dump find...stupid people..
« on: May 16, 2009, 02:08:15 PM »
Went to the dump station this morning to drop off a very dead dishwasher...and sitting there is a pressure washer..looked it over, and its got one of those base model honda engines on it...five horse horizontal shaft just like my splitter...so I ask the fella working there isf I can have it...No Scavenging!  So he says its alright, but not to
bother the pile of stuff he was taking home  ;D ::)

I figured to save the engine for a spare....but I hooked a hose up to it and it works like a charm...the pump even unloads right...won't re-load without throttling down..but for free I think I can deal with it...

now, both tillers are clean, the tractors  got washed, and I'm eyeballing the house....but I am holding out for a
24' house wand... :D

I was given a pressure washer that does the same thing. There is a pressure relief valve on the pump, and the plunger galls the bore. Turn it 90 degrees, and it should re-load just fine. ;) :D

My ol' dishwasher is going on 57 but if I took her to the dump, she'd just thump me and make me take her back home.  :D

Zopi: I have a 24' house wand and want to forwarn you, you'll earn your pay using one, they are a chore to use especialy when you have it fully extended and almost vertical and hit the spray, makes a fine dance trying to keep it from blowing over backwords.
 Good luck with your find.

I had figured on that...I used one a few years back..and it is a pain..but not nearly so bad as moving my 30' extension ladder around...two story house with big shrubs up front.

Thinking about it, I might split the difference and just get a longer tube for the gun..and use a shorter ladder...it'd sure be cheaper..
