    Honestly i just think there are only a small handful of power washing guys here, and they probably don't post much to begin with. I woulden't take offence to it, the power washing section is always dead.

    Agree, if nobody goes to PW section & posts on your thread it will just get burried on the new posts by lawncare. If you post in PW you may have to "bump" a few times to get it to stay toward top of new posts.

    You guys just don't have the colorful characters found here in LS. PW takes a little more money to get into right. You don't see 4 at every stop light like grass cutters. Smaller demographic.

    No worries , Patriot to answer your question the start up is about what a brand name
    Big deck mower would cost you less trailer of course but the money is not steady like lawns
    And if you are doing Commercial lots of late nights and weekends cause you can't work while places are open very often ,It would be difficult to sustain myself on P/W alone
    I had set both the Lawn and pressure business to keep me busy between Charters but now these have become my mainstay

    Pressure washing and gutter cleaning is 20% of my income. I just bid gutters on 3 apartment complexes and that got me in the door to bid on the landscaping, snow removal on all of them and the pressure washing on 1.

    Theres a lot less competition in my area for pressure washing and I close a high percentage of estimates but for some reason I only land about 1 out of 5 commercial accounts.

    The start up is lower but if you bid places that you have to reclaim then its more.
