Recommendations on Power Washer

I need a light, small, highly portable pressure washer to help maintain my fixer upper houses. Does anyone have a recommendation on brands and models that you've been impressed with? Some of the pumps, hoses, wands, and fittings I've seen look like pure garbage though the washer has a shiny Honda motor sitting on it. Any advice welcome. I carry 2 stroke gas with me generally when I travel to the houses (the brush saw, chain saw, and blower all use it) so was thinking of a 2 stroke motor.

Thank you kindly,
George/Oldscout

I don't recall ever using a pressure washer that had a 2 stroke motor. Honda is one of the preferred engines. The next thing to check is the brand of pump both Cat and Comet have a good reputation. I've heard to stay away from the ones that mount the motor above the pump [I've never used any like that]

OK, I assumed the Generac or Briggs and Stratton were 2 stroke but was mistaken. Thanks for the info on the pump brands. May have to just run two gas cans.
