I could see it as a help " rinsing " but on the video it does leave dirty water behind....that might be ok for you Long Island guys!

unless you're using a reclaim system, your always going to have loose standing dirty water.


that is easy enough with a pressure washer and a good 6ft lance to blow it away as we used, or, just need to water broom it off. And that is just what this is.

Made good money on this and if i can cut the time to 1/10th with a tool like this, I'll bank bout a grand an hr.

I think I would do a better wash down and be quicker with an 8 GPM and a wand.......

what width path would you get with just a wand?
4 inches at best?

if you use a surface cleaner, what 20 inches?

my wand worked much better/faster than my surface cleaner with a 5gpm 4200psi machine.

now, I "could" use a 8gom "truck mounted" machine BUT, most of the tennis courts i do are at the very back of large estates so I would need to run 800ft to 1000+ft of hose. THEN have to run back and forth to man the machine? thats just not practical.

I just came across this monster of an alternative to just wand or rotary surface cleaner and threw it up here for kicks while looking into the General Pump Trikleener.

I will be looking into another 5gpm or bigger mobile PW soon as the one im using is on its last leg!

currently i have 1 reliable PW, this dying 1, and 3 dead ones in shop. Hopefully theres some good deals this off season.

p.s. I know there are 8gpm wheeled units but try dragging that thing across 4 acres of wet hilly grass down to a court, and back up! Im getting too old for that, well at least my body is.

Au contraire Maverick! I have done tennis courts with a surface cleaner running 300- 400' line. at the end rinse down Im hitting the pavement with at least 12" and that's with just the trigger gun and nozzle. I'm moving across like a landscaper with a leaf blower, no sludge or gook left behind. This tool you posted is leaving things behind sooner or later you would have to use my method anyway, doing it twice. I will have to video it in the future or have a " Rinse off " with you.....loser buys lunch at " All American "
