    I have read in the past that you want at least 4 gpm and between 3000 to 3500 psi. The reason for this is that you will never use more than 3500 psi and if you do you will only be destroying what ever it is you are power washing. I have been looking into getting one to.

    What are you cleaning,i have 24 horse honda with 4500 psi, but the tips you can run you will sometimes have 1000 psi, but the bigger machine will get you done faster.

    I have the 24hp with 5000psi and 5gpm. I can clean a wider area then my 3500psi washers. Instead of the tip being 12 inches away from the concrete, it can be 18 inches and the spray pattern larger.
