    A very popular one is the SunJoe 3000 (or the 3001 w/ reel). They use European connectors (14mm internal) which forces use of adaptors or SunJoe parts.

    Can't speak to other manufacturers

    For $500 - the SunJoe is a great choice..... Plenty powerful and MTM can get you a package deal on longer hoses + gun + Foam Cannon and quick connections.

    MTM Pro Package #1
    MTM Pro Package #2

    I would recommend calling them though - just to be sure they get you setup perfectly with the SunJoe - I know they're familiar with it and all the proper connections - just not sure the online kits are designated with the exact parts needed...

    I also recommend their replacement tips once the original SunJoe one's run into issues...

    Re: Electric Pressure Washer

    Obsessed garage did a very complete review of all the pressure washers on the market.

    The conclusion was, if you are gonna go with an inexpensive pressure washer, the Karcher 1700 series is the one to get. It has a little bit more flow than the other units, and it has a good warranty. The other advantage is that the connectors are stardard, so if you want to replace the hose, it is a much easier process.

    One of the things I noticed while they were doing the testing is that all of the motors are roughly the same. They change the pressure rating by changing what tips the unit comes with. So for exemple, a 1500 PSI Sun Joe will have roughly the same motor and pump as the 2000 PSI one, but the higher pressure one will use tips that have a smaller orifice, thus increasing the pressure by decreasing flow. I think that is a pretty fraudulent way to do business when you think that they will sell you the 2000 PSI unit twice the amount you would pay for the 1500 one.

    I suggest you watch the serie, it's entertaining and quite informative.

    I use Sun Joe 3000. It is really great. I am satisfied. I have used some washers made by other brands and this one is on the top. Another one is Karcher K4. It is also good.

    Quit on, you as in what? The motor died or the pump failed? They use quality parts. Why don't you just replace a part and keep on going?

    He might not answer, as this discussion was from last August.

    However, I agree.......
    It is no coincidence that man's best friend cannot talk.
