    Have a quick question... I am new to pressure washing (only do it for a few customers) Today I pressure washed with a circular sidewalk cleaner (pressure washer was a rental-4000 psi) and I have to say I was pretty disappointed. For those of you that use them don't they have the circular sidewalk cleaners with more than just the 2 nozzles on the bar? It seemed like it was faster/easier with just the wand.

    This place has around 500 feet of sidewalk and a fairly large parking lot that is heavily shaded, so moss is a problem. Spraying something on to kill it is dicey due to a creek around the property. They want us to do it every year so I am trying to figure out a good long term solution as far as cleaning the sidewalks/parking quicker.

    What are your thoughts on the circular sidewalk cleaners?

    My machine is 3200 psi and 4 gpm. The surface cleaner looks like a lawn mower, I think it's made by Landa. It has adjustments to get the spray bar closer to the surface. It has worked fine for me. You do have to push it slow or it won't be thourough.

    thanks for the reply Cleve,
    geez 56 people have viewed this and only one guy is willing to help? wow.



    let me ask the question in a different way...

    Is there a sidewalk washer that has more than 2 nozzels, one that will get moss up easy and do a quicker job? anybody use these?


    Thanks for your help (hopefully)

    Mine just has to nozzles. I've never seen one with more than that. You could try a turbo tip on it. It's great for smaller areas.

    I've heard the key to sidewalks is heat.
