Question

Can a 2.8 GPM Pressure Washer power a water broom?


is 2.8 gpm on a pressure washer (3400 psi) too "slow" to power a water broom?

What do you need to be able to use one to clean a driveway?

Thanks.

I just did a little research on them, your question kinda piqued my interest in the things also. Here's a website

Interestingly, none I looked at talked about a GPM requirement, just PSI and from the looks of it you could drive up to a 4 head broom with your washer. But, I have a feeling you would have better luck with a 3 head given only 2.8GPM. Click on the specs tab and the FAQ tab.
