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.
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.
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.
