hi i am living in Germany but i am originally from the UK and would appreciate any help on ansswering this question(s) .... i am a well known window cleaner on the internet and have a quite a big name as a window cleaner here in Bavaria ....and recently have decided to get into hard floor and maybe Carpet cleaning here because i have realised there is some huge potential here on paper because most homes have some sort of hard floor surface and carpets are a thing of the past or not so much in demand.....

could any one here tell what would be the absolute minimum water flow LPM/GPM and the PSI for operating these tools...

Hydroforce SX 12 Spinner
Turbo Force Mini Turbo and Cobra detailing tool

Ps. any one needing any advice on window cleaning issues drop me a line i would be more than happy to help you if possible ...

Can't help with all the info, but I do have the SX-12. The recommended pressures are between 700 to 1500. I have used it at lower than recommended pressures and it still worked fine if the tile and grout were scrubbed first and not in excessively bad shape. It uses two 02 jets. The actual flow will be determined by how high of pressure you're using. Obviously you need a pump with pretty good output to get the best use out of it. There are better spinners on the market, but the SX-12 does do a decent job. Here is the actual manual for it that may be of some help. https://manuals.interlinksupply.com/Manuals Listed by Item Number/AW104 SX12 Manual.pdf

Thanks Pistol Pete i appreciate the info !!

, the electric pressure washers what i have deliver 1.85 gpm and have a working pressure of between 400 and 1800 PSI https://www.schmitz-kraenzle.de/de/Kraenzle-7---122-ohne-Schmutzkiller.html and the other is 2.2gpm and 400 to 2600 PSIhttps://www.schmitz-kraenzle.de/de/Kraenzle-K-2195-TS-T.html ,,, both are great pressure washers ( kränzle ) the latter is very heavy ( 49 KG ) , problem is where i live a trcuk mount would work but only for people that own their own homes,,, and most in the city have appartments which can go up to 12 levels and most are on average around 4-6 and many have no LIFT .. the smaller pressure washer is 22 KG... point is a truck mount and a porty wont cut it ... but asmall pressure washer , water vac , and the hand tools would .....i will probably have to buy another PW but this time the one with a flow rate of 9Liters (2.5-3gpm) and a maximum PSO of 1200 https://www.schmitz-kraenzle.de/de/Kraenzle-HD-9-80.html ,, cannot use a petrol PW in peoples appartments or carry a Portable up there.......

Thanks Scott ,,,, but do you think with up to 1800 PSi and 7 Liters Pm ( 1.85 ) gallons wont cut it ? what about changing the nozzle size ? or would cause damage or potential damage to the pump on the Electric pressure washer ( nozzle size 2.8 ) thank you John

The GPM rating is meant for use between 800 and 1200 PSI. I have not operated the tool at 1800 due to concern about damaging some surfaces. I am sure if you get 1.85 at 1800 you can find some PSI and flow that will work.
