Invest in Good Business Equipment: My Experience

When I started my cabinet production business, I was lucky enough to secure a good business loan, since my credit was stellar. Although I had the cash to purchase brand-new equipment or gently used items, I wanted to save by buying very old items. I was told they had a lot of life left in them, even though their low price seemed too good to be true. I learned my lesson when important pieces kept breaking down. I even had to stop production for several days to fix an important item. I learned a huge lesson that if the price of used production equipment sounds too good to be true, it likely is. I created this blog to remind other business owners that purchasing quality equipment may cost more money upfront, but it will save you money and a huge headache in the end. I hope I can help you.

Edging Accessories To Use With Your Pressure Washer

A pressurized edging tip, fittings, and adapters are some pressure washer accessories that will minimize the mess when pressure washing your driveway or home. These accessories will also allow you to maintain accuracy when cleaning surfaces that are narrow or uniquely shaped.

An Edging Tip

An edging tip is an accessory that is rated for use with a gas-powered or electric-powered pressure washer. Gas pressure washers tend to be more powerful than their electric counterparts. A supplier of edging tips will indicate the psi rating (pound-force per square inch) of an edging tip.

In order for a tip to be compatible with the pressure washer equipment that you own, you will need to determine the psi rating of your equipment and make sure that it matches or exceeds the psi rating of an edging tip. Tips will be designed for use with a specific type of equipment. Be certain to read the manufacturer's tips before buying an edging tip.

Additional Accessories And Usage Tips

Fittings and adapters will support connecting an edging tip to a pressure washer that has a connector that isn't compatible with the one that is attached to an edging tip. These accessories are sold through most retailers that sell industrial power washer equipment. The edger tip will produce a strong stream of water that will be aimed toward a narrow surface.

The use of this type of tool will increase precision while conducting a power washing application. Trim on a home or garage, the edges of a driveway or patio, and the edges of a patio can be cleaned with an edging tip. The regular tip and nozzle that you normally use when pressure washing large surface areas can be used to clean the bulk of your home's exterior, the center of the driveway, and other large areas.


Before you begin using a tip, accustom yourself to attaching it to your equipment. Clean your property, edge your lawn, and remove any loose items that will be hindering you from pressure washing. If you are going to pressure wash the exterior of your home or garage, set up a ladder and use protective covers to drape over any items you do not want to get wet during the cleaning process.

After mixing water and detergent and adding the mixture to your pressure washer, power up the equipment. Test out the edging tip. Follow up by using the normal nozzle and tip for the rest of the pressure washing job.
