Question Pressure washer

I am going to purchase a (gasoline engine powered) pressure washer and would like to have some input as to what brand, what size ect. I intend to use it mostly for house siding washing, outdoor furniture cleaning, driveway and garage floor cleaning...nothing super hevy-duty. I really want one that's adaquate but at the same time don't want to "over buy". What about the ratings of GPM and PSI.

2000 to 2500 psi will be ideal. I think normal gpm is about 2.5 to 3. Cat pumps are top of the line and comet are the cheapest. Ar pumps and General pumps are in between. Hope his helps.

How do you feel about a Honda engine?

You can't beat a Honda engine on a PW.
I've got a MTM 3500 with a 11hp Honda.

Hello Jack!

I agree...Honda is a great engine and suited well to a pressure washer. I suggest getting one with different tips for the wand. High pressure may be needed in some cases, but when pressure washing a house, you might want to change tips to keep from peeling the paint.
