Pressure washers


I'm in the market for one of these and have come to somewhat of a conclusion but wanted some feed back from someone that has one of these models or advise in general before I buy. The Coleman 2400 PSI is at the top of my list but I don't know about the motor manufacturer. Sumac is who makes the motors and I have no feel for reliability or ease of starting etc. The other model is a Troy Built 2500 with a Honda engine they both have a one year warranty and the only difference is $70 more for the Troy Built.
Thanks for any help with my decision, Rich

Note: Troy Built = MTD. Troy Built went under several years ago and MTD is just using the name and selling a lot of cheap equipment under that name.
Note #2: Don't relay on just the PSI. Make sure you take a look at the volume GPM number. In consumer machines the volume is usually sacrificed to produce high PSI numbers. High pressure and low volume is not very good.

    You might also look into Excell Devilbiss pressure washers. They use name brand engines and mine has served me well. Also a 2400 PSI model.

Thanks Ken, I used to make parts for Devilbiss years ago when I worked for a living (machinst, engineer now). I liked there attention to detail. I'll look into them as well. The problem I'm finding is there isn't alot of information out there about these units as they are a little bit of a luxuray item if this ins't what your doing for a living.
I'll kep them in mind but I'm leaning toward spending the extra $70 to get the Honda engine with there good reputation.

I have a Devilbiss that works very well. I let it freeze one winter but parts are readily available.

If you are not taking this on the road I would look at an electric. I bought a 5hp electric 2750 PSI 2.5 GPM that does a real good job without the hassle of storing gasoline and yanking on a rope. You will need another circuit in your garage since this is 30a @ 240v.
