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.

    • Last Friday, I saw a beetle at my home's carpet. It is very difficult for me to get rid with this beetle and I also saw some eggs were laying on the carpet, which was quite damaging. Then on a recommendation of my neighbor I had called up the Queens NY pest control services, who had used an insect spray and where the experts spray around the floorboards, furniture and on carpets and helped us by preventing the carpet beetles laying their eggs and removing all the food sources.  
    • arby's fries frozen?  at supermarket?  have to look for them...
    • Oh, just like the Rompers you are wearing around town then.
    • Made some frozen Arby's fries tonight and wow they were great. I would be sold just on the fries alone in this thing.   11mins cooked frozen, better and quicker than the drive thru lol
    • Actually the guy at ace was pretty close. These little guys are for framing steel studs before sheetrocking,  but yes they also could be for sheet metal work even though they are black . But your right hawg sharp and go in fast. 
    • What  a sweet find !!   Even better that you had a camera handy !!
    • Great trade and as of last year I know I wasn't ready to part with Lavine and his potential but that all changed when he went down with the injury.  I hope Lavine becomes a stud for Chicago in a few years but our time to win is now with this addition!!  Great move giving up hope for a top 15 player in the league that plays D is brilliant with the young studs we still have on roster.  Now all we need to do is add another player or 2 in free agency to strengthen our bench and we will be looking good.  Excited for the free agency to start!!! Playoffs here we come!!!!!! GO WOLVES!!!!!!!!!!!
    • http://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2017/06/22/mall-of-america-slips/   Classic case of doctors juicing up a medical claim with a series of failed therapies, creating a life long patient and a corporation with deep pockets to bill for those services.  Think not?  Dont be so naive.  Nobody wanted to fix her, they just wanted to keep billing, sad deal that happens all too often.
