Pressure Washer Purchase
5/5/14 @ 10:41 AM
I do not own a pressure washer but I think I could use one. I don't do a lot of heavy duty stuff. I will just use it for general clean up type stuff. My wife may use it to re-stain the deck once in a while. Do they make electric ones? I am thinking that not having to maintain another engine may be nice. What do you guys know about these things? Thanks. Mrt.

Several years ago we bought an electric Karcher 1750psi for the wife's cleaning biz and it still works very good, just used it tonight on the house. Cleans vinyl siding great but won't take off the black stuff from the soffits or gutters using the Karcher brand cleaner

Had a generac. Lasted 6 months and started leaking. Got into it and Found what part i needed and a place to get it. Not a generac dealer but a parts place. Went there to get the part and was told generacs were not built to be fixed but to be replaced. I said its 6 months old and he said i have seen some that didnt make it 2 months.

I see washers with the Honda engine costng a few hundred extra. But for something you use a few hours per year does the Honda quality really get you anything special. Chance are the pressure pump will fail before any type of engine will. Any thoughts on this?

Hi I have seen the Generac brand power washers in stores can anyone comment on these? I know they are a local company in the state that makes generators but I thought I would try to support our local workers pending any negative comments

I think the pressure washer is over rated! I bought an electric one many years ago and it sits in the basement. Used it a couple of times, once to strip the deck, too harsh, it raised the grain, once to wash the house, it forced water into the windows. I can do without one, I use a hose with a slim nozzle for most jobs. A great "man tool" to have in the arsenal if something comes up though!

I used to work on sanitation shift and we had 6 hoses running off a central powerwash system.Man that thing was nasty powerful.I own a 3000 psi washer that works great for driveways etc. But I won't use the narrow tip it could kill someone!
