    Want to try the power washer on cape. I understand for deer need to use 2700 - 3000 psi? What nozzel would I need? The washer that I am looking at has 0, 20, 40 deg nozzels.

    Go to Tractor Supply and purchase a rotary nozzle. The tip you have will not work.

    What is the advantage of the rotating nozzle?
    Thanks

    Just as Joey said. You can get one at any hardware store.

    The rotary, or turbo nozzle whirls the water at a phenomenal rate, creating a cutting force. Once you use one, you'll understand. Buy a nozzle that has a comparable PSI to your pressure washer. I use a 4500 psi unit, so that's the minimum rated turbo nozzle I can purchase. Word of caution, always wear heavy rubber gloves when using a rotary nozzle. If the water hits your hand, you will sit down and cry!!! It's very painful, and can take off a finger nail in a split second.

    Thanks joeym for the warning, but sounds like you would recommend the Power Washer. I always beam out the cape on on a large PVC pipe, the older I get that is getting to be a lot of work. Thanks

    I’ve been pressure washing capes for over 20 years. I beam as a last resort.
