    Have a couple of clients that want washing done. I bought a Generac Prosumer Model 5993. 3000 psi/2.8 GPM. I also bought a eighteen feet extension. I tried this out on my house and it does a pretty decent job. Anybody have any experience with this or any other Generac model? Any other tips or tricks would be appreciated. Will see how those jobs go before I advertise any more. Thanks in advance.

    Is this your first time with pressure washing? Be advised that for most surfaces (wood, vinyl siding, aluminum siding, etc.) the detergent(s) do most of the work, not pressure.

    That machine should allow you to cover larger areas in a decent amount of time. If you stick with smaller projects here/there it should serve you well.
