I am considering buying a gas powered pressure washer. This pressure
washer will be used for home use primarily to clean my huge deck and
brick/concrete front porch.
I am looking at 2600-2800psi with a Honda engine. I have found basically
the same pressure washer (2600psi) at HD, Lowes, and Northern Tools for
all relatively the same price. All these models do not have a siphon
tank. Sears has a 2800psi with Honda engine with 2.5 gallon mounted
siphon tank. The Sears pressure washer with the tank is approx. $100
more than the other three.
My question is ....is the mounted siphon tank worth the extra $100? I
have talked to a few people who have pressure washers without tanks and
have told me it is sometimes a pain due to the siphoning tube coming out
of the bucket, having to move a bucket everytime the pressure washer is
used, etc. I have no problem with spending the extra $100 if the
mounted siphoning tank is a huge advantage/convenience.
Any input/suggestions would be appreciated.
