Question Power Washer recommedation

I do lawn care but I am looking for a Power Washer for personal use at my property. I see this alot of the consumer PW's have very low reviews, these two models seem to have decent ratings with a large number of reviews. I am not sure which has a better quality pump.

Genrac $299 Genrac Engine

Troybilt $399 Honda Engine

Do you have a lot of area to power wash?

I have a 1700 psi electric unit that I use around my personal home. Works fine for me. The electric is nice because its relatively quiet and I can use it to wash the vehicles since it's not super powerful.

I would stay away from the electric pressure washer. Based on the two models you are looking at, I would go with the generac. You can get it on amazon for 269 dollars with free shipping

Those are both consumer grade, direct drive models with a low flow rate. If you have the budget, this is what we use, albeit for commercial use. http://pressuretek.com/bedr8gpm35ps.html

If you're anywhere near Northern Virginia, come by and I'll give you one that's better than either that you're looking at. It's not pretty due to being in a corrosive environment, but has maybe 20 hrs on it at most.

Guys, I think you missed the point where he said he's looking for something to use around his personal property. He's not looking for a unit to use commercially.

His point was clear, as were two of the three replies.

Frotis - I have a 2.9 gpm machine in my garage with your name on it.
