I wanted too elaborate on what i was saying. Regardless of the carrier( skid or ex) the manufacturer rates the flow. There is no standardized way of rating flow so ultimatley you will have too check flow ( like Yellow dog ) said to verify actual performance. Fow rating and adv psi rarely are rarely meant to be used togethor. The manufacturer rates the max psi and the max flow. So if put a flow gauge on the machine you will find that max flow is not usually at max psi. Flow and psi together make hyd hp so you can have less flow and more power depending on psi. If the manufacturer will not give you a flow chart from 0 too max pressure then it is near impossible too compare machines. As Yellow dog said expect to lose 20 to 40% of that hp after it goes through the attachment.
