Picked up the Super Brute from Govliquidation yesterday. As many know, these auctions can be a total crap shoot. I breathed a partial sigh of relief when Mark and I spent about 10 mins on the engine and had it up and running after draining water out of the fuel tank where it had been left with the cap off the tank. We only ran it briefly as we didn't have water hooked up to the pump. Hopefully the reason it was in our Uncle's trash can was because of the broken $2 toggle switch to turn on the water heater. Dying to get this thing up and running and try it on the old nasty waxoyl on the bottom of a tithonus tub I have waiting to be cleaned so I can bed line the underside of the tub.

Worked on this for a couple hours yesterday and went and bought some fittings and charged up the optima battery and replaced the one wheel and tire that wouldn't hold air. Poured some diesel in this morning and threw the switch for the burner and it after a couple of spits it fired right off. Probably should use kerosene and not died ag diesel.
Installed the new quick connects etc and fired up the engine and after letting the water run through the machine with the burner on for a few minutes to clean it out inside we put the gun on it and went to town on some dirty wheels, works great but have some leaks to stop. 3000 psi makes a small leak a huge mess.

I can only imagine. Post some before and after project pics (machine and cleaning!). Power washing is one of those things that provides an immediately noticeable improvement.

Nice. I run mine on #2 dyed fuel, it will use quite a bit of fuel.

One death-defying trick is to bypass the switch that requires water flow to run the burner. That way you can preheat it a bit before you start blasting and you'll get 200F water. Takes some practice or you will superheat the water and melt stuff.

Always fun to blow through paint/new rubber hoses when you get too close with the steam cleaner.

Thats how I cleaned her out !

Had water running through without the engine running and lit her off. Boiling water cleaned the coils right out
