Rutland pumps

So I have taken your advice and looking at a pressure washer from Rutland. The gx 390 seems to be the machine but what you lads reckon a 15lpm or 21 lpm and gearbox or not ? I want to get a fsc with it so that and my gx 200 giving me problems after plenty of use need to upgrade.

Thanks in advance lads

21. For sure.

15 is only good for watering the garden.

Reduction gearbox is a must for long, hard use.

Personally I'd go for the EVO3 E3E2520C with no gearbox if I were you. It's still a fantastic interpump pump, an extra 50 bar for the weedy block paving while only losing 1lpm and saving 100's. Your never going to see the benefit of a gearbox unless your running it all day every day. You'll probably get the fsc with the savings on pump and gearbox.

Has to be 13 if you're at all serious about it.

You need 13hp to run a 21litre 3000 psi pump.

Gx 390 21lpm 13 hp , the previous Honda one always started one pull and away you go so couldn't really fault it and hard to go away from Honda after that.
