heads up if you're looking to buy a pressure washer

Hi... thought I should pass this on..
for those looking to get a pressure washer, Costco has Simpson pressure washer model# 13SIE-170 (1700 PSI, 1.3 GPM) for $130ish .. includes a "turbo" nozzle that hardly wastes any water and is not as aggressive. you got a good combo here because a) the mtm hydro attaches to the wand via quick connect (no other parts needed) and produces great foam. - the wand is the perfect size, and b) Costco warranty! .. bring it back when it brakes - no questions asked)

That's pretty cheap!

I found a guy with a NIB Dewalt 3200psi for sale for only $250! Can't wait to pick it up. I'll be doing pressure cleaning as well

Without a doubt. Im borrowing an Excel (Honda) 2700 psi pw from a friend at the moment. It has, the Dewalt should as well, an adjustable valve where I can lower the psi for car washing. The same friend has a 13 hp Honda pw that he uses on his rig. I was going to get a Generac 2500 psi consumer grade pw from HD for $295 until I found the Dewalt. Besides, I can use this beast for house, fence, driveway cleaning when the details slow down. I'm very familiar with pw's.

I saw it and have been giving it some serious thought. I especially liked the quick disconnect fitting that was included that I could use with my "$5.00 foam cannon" that I got from HD when they were closing them out. And, like you say, you can't beat the Costco warranty.

If everything goes as planned, I'll post some pics tomorrow.
