    Do you have a lot of area to power wash?

    I have a 1700 psi electric unit that I use around my personal home. Works fine for me. The electric is nice because its relatively quiet and I can use it to wash the vehicles since it's not super powerful.

    I would stay away from the electric pressure washer. Based on the two models you are looking at, I would go with the generac. You can get it on amazon for 269 dollars with free shipping

    Those are both consumer grade, direct drive models with a low flow rate. If you have the budget, this is what we use, albeit for commercial use. http://pressuretek.com/bedr8gpm35ps.html

    If you're anywhere near Northern Virginia, come by and I'll give you one that's better than either that you're looking at. It's not pretty due to being in a corrosive environment, but has maybe 20 hrs on it at most.

    Guys, I think you missed the point where he said he's looking for something to use around his personal property. He's not looking for a unit to use commercially.

    His point was clear, as were two of the three replies.

    Frotis - I have a 2.9 gpm machine in my garage with your name on it.
