There's a old machine on farm, with a tank and electric motor for applying it through a lance, Left by previous tenant. Someones cut the wire off it so presume it doesn't work.

I put a bag of lime in an empty cattle trough with a couple of pints of clean engine oil and about a pint of PVA or SBR, whatever is nearest. Then mix with the pressure washer, keeping the nozzle down in the lime so there are no splashes. Just keep the washer going while mixing and you'll make a really good creamy mix to apply with a soft floor brush.
Keep the brush close to the wall while you apply to avoid covering the ground with wash.

What does the engine oil do for it? Never heard that one.:scratchhead:
