Uh... WOW. This seems like an insane deal, at least based on current pricing. Not sure about historical pricing/sales.


Shipping to the Filthadelphia area is only *$20...*


Current price at Home Depot, Walmart, etc. is $400... I was looking to buy the 2900 psi one at Lowe's (model 10000006882, 2900 psi) using the eBay $100 for $90 coupon and $10 off $100 which would have brought the price to ~$297+tax from $350+tax.


So...


Lowes (Model 10000006882, 2900 psi):
$349 --> $305 ($100 for $90 eBay gift card, $10 off $100 coupon)


$305
$17.82 (6% tax)
----------
$323.40


Menard's (Model 10000008543, 3100psi):
$299
$0.00 tax
$2.80 processing
$19.41
----------
$321.21



So... ~$2 cheaper for a better model...??? Seems like a good deal to me.


But then have consider the Powerstroke 3100 one with Subaru Electric Start at Costco for $259 (+tax)!!
https://www.costco.com/PowerStroke-3100-PSI-Pressure-Washer-with-Subaru-Electric-Start-Engine.product.100338562.html

So I guess it's a question of Generac vs. Powerstroke quality/durability/reliability etc.. Based on my limited research I get the feeling the Generac is better... I'll have to do more research. THANKS for the deal OP.

Yeah, I looked at both of those and the Subaru had iffy reviews and Yamaha wasn't as good as generac. Plus there are thousands of generac reviews to look at. I do like the power dial mode.

Went to get one but the closest one in stock was 50 miles away. Ended up getting the electric start 3100 instead. Awesome machine. Cleaned my front porch and deck today. Really nice. They also have a deal at menards for flexzilla hoses and garden hoses now.

Homedepot.com will price match the same model. Free pick when they ship to nearest store.

So I just called Home Depot to price match it and I dont know if there is something wrong with their system but I worked with a couple people and they could not even bring up the main menards website to verify it. Eventually the rep got a supervisor involved who finally just authorized the $100 off without actually being able to verify on their system. It was strange but I think that because I was courteous and patient with them, I got it. Wondering if anyone else had that issue?

Also worth mentioning that they have free delivery to home or store so you dont even need to go and pick it up! with Tax, total came to $318.81. Great deal

Worth mentioning, Menards also has the Generac OneWash 3100 on sale for just $60 more ($359 vs $299) but that model is a 2.8GPM vs the OP's 2.4GPM. That one also has a 212cc engine vs the smaller 196cc in the OP, and it also comes with a longer 30' hose, vs 25'.
