I am in the market for a new pressure washer and looking for any feedback on good/bad experiences with machines you have used or are currently using. The reason I am making this new purchase is I have been doing a lot more work in my local shore town and with my little 3GPM 3500PSI my low pressure stream seems to get cut right down with the sea breeze. I like to do a low pressure soap and wash on most of my siding jobs and its just not cutting it!
I have looked at a few NorthStar Super High Flow Gas Cold Water Pressure Washer — 3000 PSI, 5.0 GPM, Honda Engine, Model# 15782030- running about $1600. Would you think 5GPM is enough or should I go straight for the 4000psi 7GPM unit for about $3500...?
Any feedback would be appreciated.
PS: I do mostly res, not that much commercial work.
Yes, I did post this in PWRA but I would like to hear everyones opinion
