    Hello and thanks for your professional input. I need a pressure washer for my business, I need to clean off trucks, clean trailers, clean outside shop (Vinyl siding) I need to clean the shop floor its epoxy not concrete. I need to clean off all equipment that doesn't have an engine, i.e. all my hand tools, snow plows, etc.. I want quality maybe something in the 4000 psi plus range with a 13hp Honda engine (big fan of Honda engines) Something with a quality pump, I'm not real familiar with pumps. This unit will probably be used once a week maybe every two weeks when we are busy, I am a stickler about keeping all tools and equipment clean but don't want to spend all day doing it. Any input is greatly appreciated.

    I appreciate the link but is there a machine I should be looking at. I am interested in the cold water machines I don't need hot. Are the pumps on these models all the same or is there something I should be looking closer at. Again appreciate the link and Merry Christmas to everyone!!!

    That is a great machine for what you described needing it for. And you can't go wrong ordering from Bob. Great Customer Service.

    How quickly can that machine clean a 2000 sqft two story home, without using ladders?
