I am buying a rigid 3000psi pressure washer and thinking about getting a rotating nozzle. Are they worth getting,if so can you recommend one? Also how much do they cost on average?
Rotating nozzles are great for certain tough jobs. They work well for blasting off peeling paint for one. Basically they are a zero degree nozzle that spins at extreme speed allowing the user to cover a large area. A zero degree nozzle is the most powerful stream a pressure washer can make. It doesn't fan out much. The downside is that they do not cover much area. Try cleaning a sidewalk with a stream the size of a pencil. A rotating nozzle changes that pencil size stream to a cone shape several inches wide. Home Depot has one for 3000psi washers for $35.
