I agree with Mikey. The Hydro-Force gives you the most consistent spray pattern and volume. Fastest sprayer around. Just don't forget to run vinegar through them once in a while to clear out excess residue.

you must be delusional too.
HF metering varies with temp and PSI

it draws more at 150 temp compared to 200
and doesn't draw worth a squat at 220

volume of a gallon or more per minute is the only advantage .
the multi-sprayer isn't far behind it though.
I once measured mine w/08 jet at 1 gal per 70 seconds
and I know the dilution is exactly the same from start to finish.
not so with the HF



..L.T.A.

I did a 4 story building today, 4 hallways, 2 stairways. $650 in 3 hours. Could never do it in that time with any electric, battery, pump up or compressed air sprayer.

Ron, I respectably disagree.
When I do a big job, I have my helper run ahead of me with the penguin.
She then runs the CRB, and all I do is wand......
By myself, it’s Hydrofoce all the way...
With help, battery is the way to go for me....
Less cords, less BS....

The in line sprayer invented by the Hanks brothers called the “Hydroforce” became a brand name, created a chemical and small manufacturing business, and changed the industry in ways we wouldn’t recognize had they not.

Before it existed, most cleaners introduced their strongest chemistry directly through the truck mount, and brought out a pump sprayer with “traffic lane cleaner”, seldom, if at all.

Use it or not, it was as big a change agent in our industry as the introduction of the truck mount.

Not unless you're putting equal amount of precondition down. Most people make claims how much less they use with pump up and electric sprayers.

Yet if you're not getting enough down then you're working harder to clean...hopefully or it's not getting as clean as it could.

Shut up Larry and Marty! Kid! KID, pay no attention to those ignorant dumbassessss

Pump Ups and electrics will always be under used to keep from having to mix up another batch.

Or..

Pump Ups and electrics will ALWAYS be used sparingly to keep from having to make another batch.






I've been using HFs since the mid 90s.

You dopes who think you can't rely on the metering being correct or can't ever figure out how to keep them working are the same rubes that Guerkink use to have such an easy time converting to being vlm only.

I've never once ran vinegar in over 30 years, I just buy a new one every five.

they're very efficient for one man crew .
Numbnutz said anyone not using one is doing a "sub par" work

weren't you the moron that gave up onHFd and used a freaking multi sprayer with its 50 psi pump to put down pre spray.. holy shmoly..

That's consistent all right, consistantly under pre sprayed..

Yes, Larry, the dilution ratio on the HF varies depending on Temp and pressure.
However, it more than makes up for it with the heat (more efficient) and how quickly it is being applied. Not to mention how often it actually makes it out of the van.

And even if you over applied (which is not likely to happen to an experienced and conscientious cleaner) a good rinse (See under- "experienced and conscientious cleaner") will neutralize and flush it.

It definitely works better. If one's work routine or efficiency lands itself better to an electric sprayer, power to you. I feel your pain :winky:

just say what you really mean Pemberton, only cheapskates and morons don't use a hydraforce because if they can manage to do the math, they might be able to convince themselves they can they can get an extra six jobs out of a 45 pound bucket O suds by using a pump up

Helped out a friend on a 4500 sqft job once and all he had was a multisprayer. About 1.5 gallons. He had to refill about 6 times. He didn't like the Hydro-Force. Probably cost him an extra hour on the job.

It’s more fun to let myself be interpreted.

You interpret me like a jihadi mullah Michael....

If you ain't using a "Hydroforce" to apply your prespray, your doing a sub par job.


I don't care how happy you're customers are..
Was thinking the same thing today! Inline sprayer only way to keep up with schedule.

But I like the Multi sprayer brand better.

Better flow... Just like them better... And MN made 🤘😎
