Looking for a Pressure Washer!

kathyy on Sat May 21, 2011 5:32 AM User is offlineView users profile

Hello Everyone, I want to buy a new pressure washer to replace my old burnt Karcher. I use it twice in a week for 1 hour. What do you guys recommend?

It Has to be:
-Electric or Gas ( I heard gas is more tough)
-Not too big, preferable 2 wheels, but could consider 4.
-Cold water only
-I'd like to use my foam gun with it, but it’s not mandatory.
-Under 1000 $

Thanks for your help.

I purchased a $400 2500 psi B&S gas powered unit from a warehouse club. Worked it to death (literally) to do my entire house and surrounding concrete patios and drives. My next one will be and $800 Honda powered unit; it may last a few seasons.

My pressure washer has to be at least 30 years old, still going strong, was made in the USA by Generac. If we could only turn back the clock.

Hi, I have thoroughly read your requirements and felt that you must check out before going to buy. It has excellent reviews about best pressure washers according to their characteristics. I’m sure you will be able to choose best one after reading reviews.

Good luck!

Have you seen this one on the infomercial on TV?

No dangerous extension cords or gasoline to fool with and operates better than units selling for thousands of dollars yours for only $19.95 plus S&H.

But wait a minute, if you call within the next ten minutes, we will send you two of these for only $19.95 for S&H charges on the second unit.

They only left out one tiny minor detail, your home water supply should have at least 1,500 psi of water pressure. If you only have 40 psi, that is your problem.

Can agree with Hecat on a Honda engine, have two of those on the mower and snow thrower, use less than half the fuel as others I have and start on the first half a pull. Other thing I do is look up the replaceable parts list with prices. Can't get around that, but if you need an O-ring, cheaper to buy a brand new pressure washer. With these review boards, 99.9% of the time, its that companies marketing department writing the reviews.

Had that in the old AC board, Tim doesn't like that on this board with reviews of miracle AC products. Just because it is written, doesn't make it true.
