Which pressure washer to remove flaking paint?

I've read the pressure washer messages and now I'm even more confused, nothing new. My son wants to buy me a pressure washer since I am painting my house (I rent) and thought it wouldn't be too difficult to scrap paint off of the trim. It is. Would a 1300 psi electric pressure washer take off flaking paint? I will never be using it for old, flaking paint removal again. Just the trim, the siding is asbestos. I saw in a previous reply that paint remover would be needed to remove paint at lower psi's. The cheaper the better, I'm in the hole on this project already. Thanks for all the assistance I know I'll get.v bb

I have copied this thread to the painting forum also, so you may want to check over there to see what they have to say. I don't know what PSI will work, maybe someone else here, or in the painting forum will have some idea. Check in often, and I hope you get your answer!
