replacement gun and want for pressure washers

I need a replacement gun and wand for my pressure washer. Seems there are tons of them out there.

My pressure washer puts out 2800 psi, at 2.8 gpm.

Do I have to be right on target------or-----can I use higher (3000 psi, 3.5 gpm) ones?

There is a bigger selection of those with higher rating than mine.

I imagine that you can go higher. Lower would be a problem. Did you call the manufacturer, to see if the original were available?

A higher pressure rating on the gun will be OK. You will want to stay with your old nozzles to get the same "pressure" at the nozzle you're used to. If you use nozzles for a higher gpm they may not provide the pressure your used to for that degree nozzle.

That's the "pivot" factor in this equation! Thanks. The nozzles will be the same.
