Pressure washer killing grass

    Do any of you have issues with your pressure washer browning/killing grass where it sits even for a short period of time? I guess it's just the heat off of it. Do any of you have any solutions (i.e. building something for it to sit on)???
    Thanks.

    A trailer or perhaps a truck.

    Perhaps there are areas where you can't get a truck or trailer and there is not enough hose to reach. What would you do in a case like that?

    Our equipment is trailer mounted and carry 300-400ft of hose. Easier and more efficient to just pull up to job and start unreeling hoses.

    Invest in more hose. Looks much more professional and less clumsy looking, pulling a pressure washer all around a house.

    I think you are taking "mobile" pressure washing a little too far. :laugh:

    Keep the grass wet around your unit while its sitting there and you shouldn't have a problem with killing the grass.
