    Most guys I see using a pressure washer say 3000 psi. Anyone ever try less? I can get a wicked deal on a 2600 psi unit...but don't want to bother if it won't work. Anyone have experience?

    Since I couldn't get any info on it, I ended up buying a 3000 psi unit.

    I think you made a wise decision. Get a good rotary nozzle, and you'll be good to go.

    Where do you order/get one? I looked at TSC and Lowes doesn't know what I am talking about. Thanks!

    I am in Canada so we don't have the same stores here as you guys will. I got mine from Canadian tire. It's like an all purpose general store... Mix between Walmart and Lowes.

    I got one from Sears.com for 24.95. It's does a really good job!
     
  9. Turbo Tip. I saw a video on it and it seemed to work excellent. For smaller thinner skinned animals he used a 25 degree flat tip; and as well as on turkeys. Fleshed a deer in like 3 minutes.

  11. you can get away with 2600 ,but 3000 is my min I recommend , I just recently upgraded to 3600 psi after using the 3000 for 8 plus years, I buy my rotating nozzles off amazon

    Pir, I found my turbo nozzle @ Tractor Supply today..... Had to rebuild my pressure washer with a new pump, tried the other tips I have and nothing worked till I found the turbo tip at TC for about 35.00 and WOW!!! What a difference!!!!! Going to do all my deer like this, I can get one fleshed in about 15-20 minutes compared to an hour -- hour-and-half using the knife... and it gets the hide super white!
