2000 psi = 18 amps.
Do not allow to freeze
Unit weight is estimated at 316 lbs once it has water in it so you will need a ramp if you plan on taking in and out of your service truck.
If you are going to add a pressure gauge, please do so on the cold side of the unit (before the heater)
You can remove the wheels and "U" bolt over each axle to bolt down to your service trailer/van for permanent installations.
Flow switch is set at 1 gpm so you might have to adjust your jet nozzle size if you uses with carpet cleaning and upholstery cleaning tools.
Quad (4) jet carpet cleaning wands use enough water to make the flow switch light the burner.
Store indoors but use outdoors.

"The design and set up is great. It’s not loud as we thought it was going to be.
We do know that the heated water is REALLY hot! LOL . It is working great for us down here. Just wanted to thank you for

Questions and Answers:
Does the unit include a roll cage around the unit?
Yes, earlier models did not include this but now all will have the roll cage. We do have some older photos showing the unit without the roll cage but the new default way to have it built is with the roll cage. Now for the legal disclaimer, both BE Pressure, SteamBrite, and Mi-T-M all reserve the right to change exact specifications without notice. This means the factory can chose to change a part used in the build, including but not limited to the roll cage. Please read the terms and conditions at listed on the left side of every web page. Example, depending on where you look at the specs, some posting state you receive 40 ft of hose others state 50 ft of hose. Either length could be provided.
Is the coil made from stainless steel or regular steel?
It is make out of 1/2" ID regular steel. This is true will all heated pressure washers. This means you will be placing rust in the water. Please note even cold pressure washers and all carpet cleaning systems all place rust in the water as all the hoses that are used by both industries use steel hose crimps on the end of each hose. Please note that the 3.5 pressure washing nozzles are large enough to allow rust to pass through but if I am using this system with smaller carpet cleaning and upholstery cleaning nozzles we would recommend a rust bleeder filter option. See below.
While the chemical injection system work while I am in a high pressure rinsing mode?
No, If you notice the size of the soap nozzle is a 12 gpm flow rated nozzle. This mean if you stuck this nozzle on a 4000 psi pressure washer it would dispense 12 gallons per minute. This pump is only rated for 3 gpm. When you snap this nozzle in the end of the lance, the pressure will drop from 2000 psi to 200 psi and meter in soap. This also means that the burner will not usually light when applying soap since the water pressure has to be over 215 psi to light.
Why is the 4 HP motor so important if I want to use to to also clean carpets, tile, and upholstery?
Almost all electric hot pressure washers that have at least 6000 cleaning units cold / 12000 cleaning units hot have a 5 hp 230 volt electric motor installed. These 5 hp motors will consume and use 23 to 24 amps of power to operate at 230- 240 volts. When using electrical converters, either off the electric clothes dryer plug, generator, reverse converters these 5 hp pressure washer use too much electricity to leave much amp draw left to run a vacuum system. Though they would clean concrete faster, they also do not turn down the water pressure as far when needed to clean carpet and upholstery. We have found the 4 Hp motors are perfect to jump the gap between best overall in the ability to clean all surface types. We have also found that this unit will light/ go to the heating mode even with most upholstery tools!
If I mount this in my trailer and van, can I have the burner exhaust diagonally exhaust to the side through the wall?
Yes, this is a fan forced exhaust system so you can exhaust either vertically or horizontally.
