pressure washer recommendations

Hi I am hoping this is an appropriate post for this group Anybody have a n opnion on a particular brand of pressure washer? Costco has Karcher, and I looked at Crafstmans. Is the gas powered worth the cost for basic household usage... cleaning walls, deck, sidewalk etc....?
Any opinions would be appreciated.

We have a Honda. It'll blow the dirt off anything! I use it mostly to clean the pool deck in the spring and the outer parts of the gutters on the house. I don't know that I'd be happy with Karcher. It may not be strong enough. The down side to a gas model is that I can't get it started without my husband around. I don't have the pull power. I think if you buy it at Costco, they will give you a refund if not satisfied, so I say try the Karcher first. It may be enough.

opined:

Costco has a great return policy. We just bought a sewing machine that we ended up returning. They said we could return it "any time for any reason." That may have been an exaggeration, but that's what they said. A few days after returning it, they called to see if we were satisfied with the level of customer service when we retuned the machine. I got some non-stick cookware as a gift. The coating released at the edge of one piece. I didn't have a receipt, just the person's name who gave it to me. Costco took both pieces back, no questions asked and gave me a choice of cash or another set of cookware.

whatever you do, dont get your hands in front of that jet. A friend did this without thinking and her hand was bleeding and horribly swollen. got to be very careful using it so dont hit people, plants, pets, etc. Ingrid
