Does anyone have any experience with the pressure washer sandblasters?  I've been seeing them lately and not sure how good they work.  I have one of these pressure blasters, and it works all right, but it seems to clog up easily and it seems I'm constantly fiddling with the valves.  I was wondering if the pressure blasters work as good or better than what I have.  I've seen a few videos and they seem to be pretty nice.  I don't really like the fact that there's water all over the bare steel when you're done, but maybe that's not as big of a deal as I think.  

I already have a big gas pressure washer and if it's way better than dry sandblasting, I might consider it.  I sandblast outside in the dirt so I don't really care about it being dustless, I would care if I wouldn't have to worry about it clogging up from moisture.

What are your thoughts?

Here's what I have right now...





Here is what I'm talking about:

My buddy got the pressure washer setup recently and loves it. Said it's works great. He. Let's the Sand dry out for a couple days. Screens it and reuses it. Don't think it was very expensive either. You just stick the tube in a bucket of sand and start blasting!

I’ve got one of their older models. It works well when it works, but I have a lot of trouble with the sand feed clogging. It could be operator error though.

A good water trap / filter on your air line helps a lot with the clogging.
