Q: Haw many gpm are needed to make this scrubber work?
by Amilkar Martinez from Florida on January 08, 2014

A: We recommend at least 3 GPM to have this surface cleaner perform to the best of it's ability. If you do not provide it with enough GPM it will cause streaking and will not allow the swivel to spin at the proper RPM.
by Mike, Product Expert
Q: Bill, is there an adapter to connect this hammerhead to my 2500psi unit, i see the connector is presure fit and my unit has the screw connector. I hope I explained that well enough.

Greg

by Greg Peterson from Ohio on October 16, 2011

A: This surface cleaner does come with a quick connect fitting. In order for your threaded hose to be compatible, you will have to purchase adapter part # AL457.

I am posting a link to the product below:

Q: How well does this work on interlocking concrete pavers with sand in-between? There is moss growing in the joints and the pavers have mold growing.
by Mark from New York on August 07, 2011

A: This surface cleaner would work great for that application. However, you will definitely have to use at least a 2600-3000psi machine or larger in order to get great results. Also, just be aware that more than likely some of the sand in between the joints will be blown out. As far as removing the mold off the pavers, you should be satisfied with the performance of this product.
by Mike, Product Expert
Q: where do i put the grease into?.....no zerk fitting
by John from Washington on July 28, 2011

A: Some versions of this surface cleaner do not need to be greased. The newer version of this product does NOT use a zerk fitting and does not require grease. The older models will have a grease point around the rotating head assembly. If you do not see a grease point (zerk fitting), then more than likely you have the newer version and it does not need to be greased
by Mike, Product Expert
Q: Would it be safe to use a 4200 PSI pressure washer with this surface cleaner? Or would you recommended just turning down the pressure?
by Jeff from Texas on March 30, 2011

A: Yes you can definitely use a 4200 psi pressure washer with this surface cleaner. You might want to dial down the pressure just a little bit but it really isnt needed. However, the only way you can push the full 4200 psi is by using a zero degree spray tip. Normal operating pressure of a 4200 psi model is going to be 4000 psi. The additional 200 psi is only obtained by constricting the water through the hose and spray tip that I mentioned.
by Mike, Product Expert
Q: Have a Karcher residential G3050 gas presure washer. Will the GP Hammerhead Surface Gleaner work with this machine? Would purchase include necessary hoses/wands/etc. to couple the G3050 or are these a separate purchase? If separate, what is required?

Thanks
Tom J

by Tom from Washington on March 28, 2011

A: Yes this surface cleaner would definitely work with your model pressure washer. This surface cleaner comes with all components shown in the picture and would connect directly up to your existing pressure washer hose. In your situation, since your existing hose should be threaded, you would also need to purchase an adapter model D10089.

I posted a link below to the adapter:

Check & Grease The Bearings
I already own one and found that without the grease fitting the bearings will fail and it's expensive to replace. You have to take the snap ring off the bottom of the head and clean and grease this once in a while.

I didn't see anything about this anywhere. Found out the hard way.
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast, Price, I'd Buy It Again
Cons: Durability

Rebuild Kit
Purchased this unit in March 2012. Used it four times and put away dry each time. On the 5th use, the arms would not spin. Almost impossible to get a repair kit as the manufacturer will not sell to the general public, only through a pump dealer at a much higher price.
Pros: Easy To Use, Light Weight, Price
Cons: Unreliable, Bad Instructions, No Warrantee Stated In Booklet

Al,
The critical point on any surface cleaner is the swivel- where the arms join the body. Not only does this area need to be kept clean, but units without sealed bearings need to be kept lubricated.

Rebuilding the swivel extends the life of the unit, and kits are available online by searching 'Hammerhead swivel rebuild kit'.

2 And A Half Years Later
Purchased 2/24/11. Over the past 2 and a half years of using the surface cleaner I have cleaned....my driveway/sidewalk/deck 4 times, my neighbor's driveway twice, my parent's large driveway 3 times, and the elementary school sidewalks, main entry, and play area (takes about 3 days) 3 times.

I have had no problems. It works today just like it did the first time I used it.
Pros: Fast, Durable, Exceeded Expectations, Reliable

Best Power Washer Accessory Ever
GP Hammerhead may be the best tool in my garage. Takes about 1/3 the time,washes better, no overspray.

Lightweight and pretty much hovers over cement. Does cause fights with friends who try to take their turn with it.

Price is too high but after owning, have no idea why I did not have this 20 years ago. I run it with 3700 and 4 gph. I can move right next to boat on dock and not get anything on boat. Driveway looks new.

So smooth, does not cause pain in your arms. Best ever.
Pros: Easy To Use, Durable, Exceeded Expectations, High Quality
Cons: Expensive, Does Not Have Lights

Working Ok....now!
I'm giving this average review with low quality based on the condition of the product when I received it. Nothing against Pressure Washers Direct, they did their job! It was well packaged, but when I first tried it out if vibrated a lot. Being this my first experience I didn't know what to expect.

It work for 1/2 on my first job. Both nozzles were plugged really bad, but what concerned me was the condition inside the tube where the nozzles attach. Inside it was rusty and had junk built up... more

Kevin,
The folks at General Pump may have tested the unit before shipping it, but it still should have arrived clean and operational.

We appreciate your business, and apologize for any inconvenience. Please be assured we will address this with General Pump so it doesn't happen again!

Separate Yourself From The Amateurs
Using the sufrace cleaner takes my driveway cleaning into the professional realm. I use a DeWalt 4200 PSI pressure washer to drive the surface cleaner. By pulling it slowly across the drive, the filthy water just boils off the drive leaving a wide swath of clean concrete. I go back and clean a second time going the other way to remove any hint of striping, then apply sealant.

By lifting lightly halfway down the handle, the surface cleaner will literally float on the power of the water... more

Just be sure to clean and dry it after use. Blow out the water. The spin action area need to be oiled after each use.

Did Not Last
I bought this summer 2012, used it to clean a large driveway and patio area, and it worked very well.

I went to use it this season, and the nozzles would not spin. Bought a snap ring remover to take the assembly apart, found 3 of the small snap rings rusted and broken apart in several pieces jamming the assembly. I thought I could just replace those, but one of the 15/42 bearing assemblies is also all rusted and I can not get it apart, so I had to spend $70 to order a repair kit.

Leon,
We are sorry for the inconvenience. Rust can happen when tools are put away wet, or stored where it's humid or damp- we appreciate your letting potential customers know that they will need to drain the unit and let it dry before storing it.

Needs A Grease Fitting
Purchased Two of These Units - One Lasted 3 Years Used Daily; This Unit Had a Grease Fitting At the Swivel.

the Second Units Lasted 13 Months. the Bearing Became Noisy and Then the Swivel Bar Stopped Spinning. I Feel That It Is a Mistake Not to Have a Grease Fitting On These Units.

I Talked to General Pump and My Feeling Is That They Are Not Going to Install Grease Fittings On These Units If Using On a Daily Basis, Would Not Recommend This Unit.

Again, Happy With the... more

China Ripoff
The company that mass produces this product and allows consumers to purchase it should be sued! I am a licensed general contractor. Last week I made the mistake of purchasing the General Pump 20 inch surface cleaner. I was in the middle of a week long pressure washing job and decided to make the big purchase.

It worked great for the first day. The second day was different! It would no longer spin. Took it back! (All of this is a waste of time.) Thought maybe it was a bad apple, so I bought... more

Charles,
It might be more effective to tell General Pump about your experience, so they can recommend the right product and procedure for your application. They can be reached, toll free, at (888) 474-5487.

Professional grade equipment should be used for professional applications. Prosumer grade equipment is best suited for homeowners who want better quality components, and professionals for occasional or light duty use.

Surface cleaners should float over the surface being cleaned. If you push down on the unit you run the risk of jamming the nozzles with grit or debris, or overheating the swivel. You can clear a nozzle with a thin wire or paperclip. Some swivels can be rebuilt, but they are usually found on Professional grade units.

This unit has a 90 day Factory Warranty through General Pump that covers defect in materials & workmanship, but will not cover mis-use or abuse.

Don't Blame Us
This product is junk!!. How dare you sell it and tell us to basically complain to the manufacturer! ! YOU'RE selling this junk. I purchase this as an additional cleaner. And as others have mentioned, it worked fine and then broke. No...it was not put away wet..nor in a humid shed! Because of your response I will not purchase from you again. And I will tell others until you stand behind what you sell.
Pros: Price
Cons: Low Quality, Unreliable, Durability
