I have a Milwaukee pressure washer with a Honda GX390 13 HP engine. The washer is rated at 3750 psi & 4 gpm. Which surface cleaner would be recommended for this?

Would the Mi-T-M AW-7020-8003 Rotary Surface Cleaner, 20" be a good choice? Would one with wheels be easier to operate? I would be cleaning a couple thousand square feet of concrete at my house and my brother in law would want to use it on his several thousand square feet of patio, sidewalk & driveway. My pressure washer will not inject soap when high pressure nozzles are use so how is soap applied and what soap is recommended?

That or the general hammerhead, 20 would be fine, we have the 18 hammerhead, very good, we also have the 15 Mi-T-M goes on the end of the wand, both have ball bearings and are great. The 15 we use on a 2750/2.8 for decks the 18 we use for cement areas with a 4000/4

Does the ABS cover on the general hammerhead cover a metal dome over the wand? Or is the ABS cover the actual dome? I assume the 18" creates a 16 inch path? I would think a wider path would require more PSI and/or more GPH. I think I'd rather have a faster unit with a slightly smaller path (18" cleaner) than perhaps questionable speed on a 20" cleaner. What are your thoughts? I found the 18" Hammerhead for $330 and free shipping. It is in my price range.

Just wanted to check back in. I decided on the 20" Whirl-A-Way with casters Part #: 85.403.011. I sure hope I made the correct choice but I wanted something where parts would be available for a long time.
