Looking to buy a machine...

I want to buy a powerwasher to learn with. I have used them to clean equipment and driveways but thats about it. I would like to take a season to learn how to correctly spray houses.

That being said, I have been searching for a used PW. I found this today...

3200 PSI
4.0 GPM
9HP
1yr old
Low hours

They want 350 obo. Is this something I should jump at?

Hopefully, siding, roofs, decks....etc

Basically anything that I can learn to use it on.

I know there have been a ton of threads about people wanting to do pressure washing. Its just another service I would like to add. I have been in the green industry for about 12 years total. I have experience with lawn care, landscaping, fert n squirt, working heavy machinery, driving 10 wheel dumps....I have done quite a bit. So when I say I want to add this to my business. Im serious. I also wont be running out and buying a pressure washer tomorrow and and charging for its use on Friday. I plan on taking a full season to learn how to use it on my own property until I master it, before taking it to someone else's.
