Instruction Manual & Detailed Video Instructional Library
*Pressure washer and air compressor NOT included
(1) Air compressor is required with the Forecaster Snow Gun. The air compressor must be rated for at least 5 CFM @ 90 PSI to work properly. Recommended compressor size is between 5-6 CFM @ 90 PSI. Compressors rated greater than 6 CFM @ 90 PSI will work, but will not improve snow quality.
The Forecaster will work with any pressure washer that can produce at least 1000 PSI. You can also use multiple pressure washers/pumps in a "Train System" (for more information please check out the "Forecaster Train Packages" page). The Forecaster Snow Gun will work with any pressure washer(s) rated between 1-6 GPM (gallons per minute) of water flow.
STANDARD WATER SOURCE
The Forecaster is designed to be used with a standard home water spigot. You can also use a well, lake, pond or other water source as long as the source can produce enough water flow for the pressure washer.
The Forecaster Snow Gun requires freezing conditions to produce real snow. For more information about snowmaking temperatures Click HERE
The amount of snow produced will be determined by the pressure washer GPM (gallons per minute) rating. 1 GPM = 1" per hour of snow production. 2 GPM = 2" of snow per hour, etc. The Forecaster Snow Gun can handle up to 6 GPM of water flow from the pressure washer(s). The approximate area coverage for the Forecaster Snow Gun is 12' x 30'.
The Forecaster Simple Package can be upgraded over time! The Forecaster system makes it easy to expand by adding an additional pressure washer to your setup! Check out our page about running multiple pressure washers for more info.
