    What make and model trailer mounted pressure washer do you guys recommend. I would use a regular model that hooks up directly to a hose but i need to be able to get in the woods to wash off skitters, dozers and other equipment. Also what type of regular pressure washer would you suggest to a newbie.?

    Since you will be running out of a tank, I would stay with a 4.0 or 5.5 gallons per minute rig.
    Any Honda powered equipment would suit your need.
    Have a look at to get an idea of what is available.
    Do a search, there is some companies offering all equipped turn key trailers as well.

    Have a look here then:
    They have pretty good prices too but, still, give a call to Bob at Pressure Tek, he can give you an estimate on a trailer as well and he knows what he is talking about.

    Bob is setting up a custom rig for a buddy of mine right now. That thing is going to be sick, right down to the ELECTRIC hose reels!

    If you are having a trailer custom built spend the little extra and have the eight bolt wheel option added with electric brakes on both axles. Keep in mind water is a live load and shifts while in transit. The extra springs allow you to have more payload and more water on board, plus the trailer will age much better. My first trailer was an inclosed with 2 3500# axles and 14" wheels. After a 4 months I needed new tires and the brakes were almost worn 60%. After this I moved away from the trailer and started to build trucks (cab and chasis with poly tanks). Both have thier pros and cons but you cant beet the cost effectivness of the trailer.
