You really don't need that cobra tool, I haven't used mine in years.  That is my favorite spinner, but I don't think it will work well with the small flow rates of those psi washers.  You really need great gpm flow and heat to make that tool useful.

Since you are not doing a lot of tile now, I would look to use what you already have.  Good chemicals and that weighted Orbot with brush will clean tile better than any spinner as long as you can flush it afterwards.

Remember, you can actually strip the wax off a tile floor with that brush and weight kit using just plain water!!  So, just get a good grout brush on pole, good chemicals, and a flushing tool with vac and you are set for now.

this should work pretty good 1.9 GPM others say at least 2 or 2.2 gpm, hell 1.9 is close enough for me, I know a guy using a 1.2 gpm that works, maybe not that good but it works

and you do have a point, I do have that nice new orbot vibe with weight kit and t&g brush, so maybe I hit it with the vibe then the spinner to get anything the vibe left behind but has loosened up, that would be a good combo, plus the spinner would get into smaller tight spots the vibe won't

I think that would be a good approach. I really just use my spinner for flushing and recovery, I use my Orbot or CRB for the agitation. For a spinner to really have great impact, it requires high psi and gpm....that high pressure also can damage grout, so my spinner runs around 650 - 800 max when I run it.

Even the PMF Hard Surface Wand does a pretty good job and includes better scrubbing ability than any spinner.

you know I might just skip the spinner tool and get a good hard surface tile wand instead, they are like half the cost for one thing and then the GPM on whatever pressure washer I get is not as important, i think but I could be wrong, correct me if i am
then the
AR Blue Clean AR610 Industrial Grade 1350 PSI 1.9 GPM Electric Hand Carry Pressure Washer $449.00 should be plenty good enough

Portable two cords one vac hose, pressure washer 1 cord and 1 solutions hose. Hose and cord management will be very important or it's going to be a tangles mess not to mention 3 separate circuits .

If you're going to use the OP for agitation just get the gecko style tool and rinse with porty

Gecko works well too, but the PMF wand scrubs a little better although it doesn't get under objects as well. My PMF Surface Wand gets used mostly on flooded basements but I have been using it more and more on tile lately.

Tile spinners are starting to become the "old school" method and wands like the Gecko are gaining superiority mainly for the ability to get under toe kicks and around toilets.

Well i've made my final decision and placed my order, I went with this

I already have a hard surface wand with the squeegee on it so now i'll have both, got a few t&g jobs lined up and will now push t&g more, not worried about the money, i'll make it back quick enough

I don't know how long they offer the free hand tool and free shipping so you might want to give them a call on that, the free hand tool and free shipping is part of what makes it a good deal

Thanks for the follow-up, that is a pretty good price. I really don't need another of the cobra tools though. I will be checking the budget.

You can get it then sell the cobra hand tool for 50% less then regular price it would be brand new and a good deal for someone and recoup some of your money

It is a very good deal as that spinner normally sells for around $900 alone, but I am just starting to crawl out of the hole left by a bad winter, so I might have to hold off.

I do look forward to hearing your opinions on it as you get going.

To run the spinner properly you need 1000 to 1200 psi and at least 3 gpm. If I remember right those spinners have a total of #6 jet but I won't swear to it.

Well my new spinner just got here today, there are two 02 jets on it, I know a guy who has one and is using a ryobi 1.2 GPM home depot pressure washer with it and it spins and works, That being said, although it spins and works it's most likely not working up to its full potential but this was all he could afford for now.

I bought the water otter 1200 psi 2.2 GPM to use with mine, most people i ask say they mostly use theirs around 900 psi and that 2.0 GPM with a spinner and it will work great, I cannot find any pressure washer that is 1200 psi thats going to put out or is even rated at 3 GPM or better
I did however find this (Honda GX270 3,800 psi 3.5 GPM Gas Pressure Washer)
or this (BE Pressure 2700-PSI 3-GPM Carb Compliant Cold Water Gas Pressure Washer)
One does not need anything like this at all to run a spinner in someones home, now for those outdoor spinners that you would use on someones driveway then hell yea get something like i have listed above

The industry does suggest over 1,000 psi, but I don't run them that high personally. It depends on what you are trying to accomplish, higher psi for impact or lower psi for flushing.

Most spinner guys don't like to agitate at all, so they use the higher psi to provide the agitation instead. It works that way, but it can also blow out grout that way too. I prefer to scrub prior to running the spinner, so lower psi has been effective.

I do thing the gpm rating makes a difference though, but I have said many times that I feel gpm is on to the most undervalued spec in our industry as the greater the gpm, the greater the cleaning potential.
