light duty tasks? I don't think 1700 psi at 1.4 GPM could even get the food off my dishes

I have the Ryobi 1700psi at 1.2 GPM, and it's plenty strong for household tasks. I cleaned off several years worth of grime from my deck without any problems whatsoever and that wasn't even using the "turbo" tip. For household uses, a gas powered machine is overkill. If you need that kind of power at home, rent one for a single use.

As an alternative, I'd suggest people look at the Ryobi through Home Depot, especially if you miss this deal. It's regularly $149, and it comes with a three year warranty which is what did it for me. I can't tell on Amazon, but I'm guessing this Powerworks has a one year warranty which is fairly standard. Many reviews of other brands (Karcher, for instance) mention that they work one season but fail when they start up the next year. The Ryobi has a nice cage frame like this Powerworks one as well as metal fittings and an aluminum motor. Very nice build quality and very good results with mine.

Be careful if you buy a power washer though -- you'll want to clean off all sorts of things! Big Grin

[edit] See below -- Ryobi is discontinued! Thanks to thunderbt3 for pointing that out.

So if the ryob is $149 everyday price at home depot plus coupons, is this post even a deal? Sounds like your saying they are the same except ryobi includes 3 year warrant

Wow, I bought it a little over a month ago. That was quick. I don't think it's sold in stores, either.

Never mind then!

This doesn't seem hot at all, unless Black and Decker's pressure washers are crap. I grabbed an 1850 PSI one for $130 at Sams. I guess with the membership fee, it does turn out more expensive...

Anyway, it's powerful enough to remove grime from a concrete terrace, and has even removed old paint/grime from our cement ballisters. It came with two attachments, one with a brush for washing your car, and a soap container. Not sure if it's still available.

In that price-performance class, AR Blue Clean AR383 is the one to get.

LOL! I think it'll clean the dishes, but seems wimpy. Tried similar. Took it back to Costco and bought the 3000 psi @ 2.4GPM, for $249. That one works great for cleaning garage floor, patios, patio furniture etc. (Of course it's only 3000 psi at the tip... but the extra power is appreciated when water-brooming concrete.)

You couldn't be more wrong. 1700psi is probably enough to...wash your car? clean your windows? water the plants? Definitely not strong enough to actually power wash a driveway. A gas powered machine is totally not overkill unless you plan on using your pressure washer to bathe your pets & kids.

Trust me, I've had 5+ years experience taking business from manual laborers.

Do yourself the favor of getting a gas powered one with decent PSI so you can do things like clean concrete and clean the outside of the house before painting it. If you know for sure all you want to use it for is your car and windows or something get this I guess.

I've been looking at the Campbell Hausfeld PW1825 for a while now:
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/...PDKIKX0DER

Similar specs (1800 PSI / 1.5 GPM) and I generally trust the Campbell Hausfeld name. Anyone have an opinion on this? Might be a better buy at only $109.00
