Pressure washer rating

3 posts in this topic

What is a good pressure rating for a washer to be used for common purposes(clean r.v., wash deck)?

I picked one up at Sam's Club that someone used once and returned and I was able to get for half price.It is a 5.5hp Honda and the original head was good for 2600PSI but that ended up going bad and the head I have now is good for 2750PSI. They come with different nozzles that will allow you to change the output. I would not want one with less then 2400PSI because when you need the power to peal paint or get grim off of your deck it is nice to be able to change the nozzle and get more power right away.

I got a Northern Tool washer at 3000psi. The cool thing is it can dial down to lesser psi very easily, in addition to many nozzle tips. It has the Honda GX engine. The difference between a GX (slightly more expensive) and the GC engine is that you can get parts for a GX should you ever need them. The GC is basically a "once it breaks, get a new one" engine - or so I understand. But, chances are it won't break smile GX is also their performance engine, and it has a low oil shutdown, for those times if you ever loan it out to people not so smart, ha!.

I would agree that 2400 or under might have you wishing for more at some time. Good luck.

    • I am interested in what this cough muffler looks like
    • Looks like a lot of rocks.  Could be some fish laying on the bottom.  I look for separation between the object and the shadow.  After I get more acquainted with my new unit i will try and post some shots
    • Its a whole new world down there with SI and DI.   After you learn what the picture is showing you,  you'll wonder what took so long to get it   I was a Lowrance guy for years and made the switch to H'bird this year with the new Solix with Mega chirp.  Very happy with it so far.  Amazing clarity and images.

    • Back to the original reply- which one and which size? http://www.homedepot.com/p/Basement-Watchdog-Emergency-Battery-Backup-Sump-Pump-System-BWE/100055241   Amperage (amps) 6.5   Or, if you want to be serious then install a few of these bad boys. I call it the Mother Of All Backups or MOAB for short.   https://www.sumppumpsdirect.com/SUMPRO-SUMPROGOLD-Sump-Pump/p2565.html  
    • Has anyone been on Clear yet this season? Thinking about heading that way in a few weeks to try for some walleye and yellows. 
    •   Well wasn't cheap but you got fixed and it would have been a real mess if she blew out on the lake.
    • Congrats looks like a beautiful and productive lake! Nice work. 
    • Ended up being the clutch dog and reverse gear were wore out... 550 for parts...I almost ended up getting a whole new lower unit, but a buddy was able to find the parts...The shop said they discontinued the parts Yada Yada Yada, but some shop in Hackensack was able to find them I guess...just want the dang boat back ha...
