Sure does make the truck ride better. My dually has overload springs on  it. Used to belong to a lady that pulled show horse trailers all over the U.S.

The 700lb compressor mellowed out the bumps and hard ride. Pretty excited about the whole thing. Be glad to get it done so I can get some jobs done.

I wouldn't recommend that size to anybody unless you have the truck to handle it. My 3500 series, dual wheel, turbo diesel is the truck to use. 700 lbs in the back of it is like a fly on an elephants butt.  LOL

I think your going to need aleast 2 ground guys watering? your going to get over spray every where if you shoot from the ground? The wind is going to take it on the other side of the roof and spot of the deck, and etc.

Probably still shoot majority from the gutterline, but there won't be anymore "I can't reach its". Us OLD guys don't like being on roofs. Need the extra distance. The whole set up, compressor and pump was under $1K, so if I have to, I'll go back to a fatboy. disbeliefdisbelief

 Don't know.  It is a 4 cyclinder, 18hp, 32 cu,in,electic start. With the 60 gallon tank, it won't have to run long for the average house.

Depending on the weather, I should have some answers in a couple of days. Temp don't really matter as long as it don't rain. suppossed to be in mid to high 50's next 5-6 days with some rain over the week-end. We'll keep you posted.

 Ritchie Brothers------RBauctions.com. They have their biggest auction for 2012 nexr week in ORLANDO. You can register to bid online. They also have "timed auctions" which is where you will find most pressure washers. You can preview the item and see what you want to bid on.
