The Forecaster "Train" Packages allow you to use multiple pressure washers with the Forecaster Snow Gun. Why would you want to use more than one pressure washer? Well... Here's Why!
More Affordable for Making More Snow
In the snowmaking world, more water (GPMs) equals more snow. Single Pressure Washers rated over 2 GPM are typically very expensive (and often require 220v power). Using multiple smaller (110v) pressure washers in a "train" system will let you make more snow at a much lower cost.
Expand your Snowmaking System Overtime!
The Forecaster Train Packages let you expand your snowmaking system over time. The Forecaster can work with any pressure washer, or a combination of pressure washers in a "train" system up to 6 GPM. This gives you a wide range of options to add more pressure washers overtime if you want more snow!

Instruction Manual & Detailed Video Instructional Library
(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. The Forecaster Snow Gun will work with any pressure washer or combination of pressure washers rated up to 6 GPM (gallons per minute) of water flow. You have the option to use multiple pressure washers, but can always use a single pressure washer to start out.
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. If you use multiple pressure washers, then it will be determined by the total combined flow rate. 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'.
