    Which pressure washer?

    What pressure washers do you guys use? And what is the psi?

    Which one should I get?
    My main purpose is to wash car.
    Kärcher G3050 OHC Gas Pressure Washer
    Karcher 2600 PSI Gas Pressure Washer 173 cc Engine

    Or suggest me another one!

    Go with an electric if it's just to wash the car. If it's to do decks and such go with the gas option with higher PSI.

    we had 2 electrics in the past and they all stop working within 1 year of purchase. so i was thinking gas will be more reliable

    I had the same trouble with electrical washers I had a AR Blue 1900 and it gave out......out of nowhere the engine will make very short whirling sounds. After a few uses it gave out! On the other hand my fathers Honda GVC 190 is pretty good! Still running even thou he knocked off a wheel while transporting it.

    That's why you buy it from Costco with the generous return policy.

    They will take anything! Even if you broke it!

    Your first problem is buying PW's from places like Costco. That's like buying a DA from Advance. It's not designed for more than occasional use.

    Most pros here use Karchers or AR's not specifically designed for commercial use because they are easily portable and not loud enough to wake people up on early morning jobs not to mention low cost and easy to replace free of cost at costco. Having to replace something every year or so free of charge doesn't seem bad to me at all.

    Which low gpm electric PWs do you know of in the commercial market which are sold with a warrenty like costco provides?
