What size pressure washer do I need? 1200 PSI @ 1.5 GPM or a 1400 PSI @ 1.75 GPM -120 volts.
kind of air compressor and size do I need? It takes a 80 gallon 6.5
HP 2 Stage and it goes up to 175 PSI and it is set for 110 PSI turn on and 130
PSI turn off - 220 volts. We can not guarentee a smaller one would work. Further

What size hose do I need? It uses a standard 3/8" by 50' sometimes 100' air line. Sometimes the air line freezes so you need a spare kept inside warm. A ½" air line would decrease the freeze ups.
What causes Freeze Ups? Humidity causes the freeze ups. The more humidity there is the more frequently you will have freeze ups. If it is 25°F and the humidity is 80%, you might have to change the air line every 3 to 4 hours but, if it is 25°F and the humidity is 20%, you may not have to change the air lines at all.
much snow does it make and in what amount of time? It puts 1" to
3" of snow on a 20' wide by 60' to 70' long slope in approximately 4 hours taking
in consideration the temperature and humidity levels. If you were to leave it
in one spot for approximately 4 hours to create a pile (jump), it will make
it approximately 2' to 3' high by 5 to 6' wide by 20' long. Refer to the temperature
guide to help you determine the weather conditions needed for creating good
