Take a look at the two 13HP pressure washers here. What's the
difference? Both are commercial grade pumps, but one is a "General"
brand, and one is a "Commercial Grade" brand. (Is this right?)
The 3900 comes with a 75' hose, the other one a 50'. Is this the only
Also, have they stopped selling the hose-reel that used to fit on the
Looks like the one is generic, unbranded pump while the other is a
branded General Pump pump with the same performance spec's. Whether
they're the same pump but one is unbranded or it is a Chinese
knockoff, no way to tell from data supplied. One _might_ have a
better chance of parts, etc., down the road w/ the branded one -- w/
an unbranded pump, one would be w/ DeWalt as only recourse, probably.
Other than a minimal difference in accessories and the pump
difference, it seems they're pretty near equivalent. Why there's such

DeWalt or nothing. Whether that would eventually be a problem or not
is anybody's guess...
Other than minor accessories, that seems to be the difference.
As for the hose reel, not knowing they "used to", I have no
idea... :) I presume there's a "contact us" or 800 number posted on
the web site for such questions (but I didn't look)...
