I am looking for comments as I plan on buying a new pressure washer to go along with our upcoming move. The brand pump I am considering is an AR North America (Annovi Reverberi) which is actually Italian. Has anybody owned or used one? The unit that I am looking at has a 4000 psi/4.0 gpm pump and considered an industrial grade. We will be back on city water instead of our current well pump so I don't have to worry about starving it plus the house actually has two separate water feeds as well. The main reason I am considering this brand pump is because the complete pressure washer unit runs off of a PTO. That way I don't need to have another engine to maintain plus the actual unit (because there isn't an engine) takes only 20" x 20" of space to store. I currently have an eight year old HF pressure washer that has been great, but I decided it is time for an upgrade.
Amazingly though for slightly less, for example, I can buy a Yamaha PW4040 with a Yamaha MX360 engine and 4000 psi/4.0 gpm CAT pump. There are other brands to consider that are similar and cost more/less usually with a Honda GX and CAT pump. But it seems that Yamaha drives the cam by a gear train instead of a timing belt like Honda uses. Anybody know if this is true?
I have a large dirt leveling & shaping project coming up down the road. Seat time!
I need to be able to loosen up high areas to push them around to level and improve drainage of a 100 ft x 150 ft back yard. The soil is sandy/clay granite gravel. It has enough clay in it to be very hard when very dry, but will dig fairly easily when damp.
So I'm starting to think about how to install a tiller and dozer blade on my C-160 at the same time.
I wish I could even mount the Tiller and a Center Mount Grader Blade at the same time.
But I suspect the blade would hit the front wheels when angled since it would be mounted forward of its normal position, or it would hit the front tiller pulley?
One idea I'm thinking of essentially making a double rear axle hitch, one in front of the other. The tiller would mount in the rear mount under the axle in the normal positionn so the pulleys would be in the correct location so the belt length would not change. The dozer blade wound mount in the forward mount, and its lift link would have to be a custom length. I'm thinking I need to make some type of support bracket from each side of the front mount that would mount to the frame. The forward mount would also have to be spaced forward enough so the end of the dozer blade arms would not hit the tiller cross bar in the rear hitch mount.The normal hitch locks probable would not work, so I'm thinking a locking bar would be bolted on to lock both implements in place.
The other idea would be one hitch directly below the other in the normal axle position. It would also have to have some type of brace to the forward frame so as to not put a twisting force on the axle. I haven't figured out if there's enough ground clearance to do this type of arrangement.
The front dozer blade would be lifted by the existing hydraulic lift and the rear tiller would be lifted by a 2nd rear hydraulic cylinder. Only one implement would be in use at one time.
I'm thinking I will make a wood mock up of both ideas to work out some basic details before I start cutting & welding.
Has anyone tried this? I would like to learn what worked and what didn't from others. if you haven't tried it, I still like to hear your thoughts on what might work, or potential problems that I haven't thought of yet.
So many projects, got to find a way to make them fun!
Finally! For years! I hoped to find a mid-mount grader blade without having to pay $300 AND drive all day! $130 and less than an hour round trip I have one in pretty good shape! Happy day! It's different than what I expected though. Frame is more like a cut off dozer blade. I'll add a picture if can figure out how O my phone. #711219 escapes me. Garry! I need you! Rear mount at the axle. Angle control looks odd. No means from the seat.
Crap. Don't know how to add pictures from this phone. Craig will harass me I suppose... When I get to my computer Craig!

The model that was available when the list was made
Often many models between the last two are not listed.
You must go from year to year and follow the model numbers to see them all.
For a complete list enter DNA in the search box and next to that box select Files from the drop down menu. Then click on the magnifying glass. Two pages of 33 results will come up in random order. Find the attachment you are looking for and click on it. The DNA for that model of attachment will come up. Look for the model of your attachment in the DNA list. They are organized from earliest to latest.
STD for a model indicates that attachment was standard equipment that came on that model.
