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.

    • New ABC / WaPo Poll Shows Drop In Trump Favorability Courtesy Of Aggressive "Oversamples" Jan 17, 2017 3:42 PM   In the month leading up to the election on November 8th, we repeatedly demonstrated how the mainstream media polls from the likes of ABC/Washington Post, CNN and Reuters repeatedly manipulated their poll samples to engineer their desired results, namely a large Hillary Clinton lead (see "New Podesta Email Exposes Playbook For Rigging Polls Through 'Oversamples'" and "ABC/Wapo Effectively Admit To Poll Tampering As Hillary's "Lead" Shrinks To 2-Points").  In fact, just 16 days prior to the election an ABC/Wapo poll showed a 12-point lead for Hillary, a result that obviously turned out to be embarrassingly wrong for the pollsters. But, proving they still got it, ABC/Washington Post and CNN are out with a pair of polls on Trump's favorability this morning that sport some of the most egregious "oversamples" we've seen.  The ABC/Wapo poll showed an 8-point sampling margin for Democrats with only 23% of the results taken from Republicans...   ...while the CNN poll showed a similar 8-point advantage for Democrats with only 24% of respondents identifying as Republicans.
