    Those China clones can be OK if used as a stand buy unit. Have a older Generator on the wash truck which I use to run some lights during night time cleaning. Unit has 400-500 hours on it and no real issues. Only the carb needed to be adjusted when I got it.

    As for a washer unit. Honda make a good engine but they don't have enough torque for me. 13hp is great but were's the torque??? Plus at full load they will put you in the poor house at $4.00/gal fuel. IMO stick with the older wisconsins or similar truly Industrial units (SOLID CAST METAL). Think when purchasing you will never shut off the machine. In time they will run 8-10hrs a day 6 days a week. When these numbers are achived you better have depandable units. Can you say diesel!!!!
