Readers – I Would Like Your Help Buying a New Pressure Washer

I would like to buy a pressure washer.  Looking around my country acre this spring I see a lot of places I can really use one. Cleaning the house, the driveway and all the snow equipment before I put it in storage.

But, it’s been 15 years since I’ve owned one. I would like your help deciding which one is the best for me.

I’ve come up with a list of my wants.

1. I’m going to buy it through Amazon – I have a gift card. The problem with Amazon is there are over 1950 different models listed.

2. I want to spend between $300 and $500.

3. I think I need 3000 psi. I feel I need that much power to clean my driveway.

Anything I should know? Any other criteria I need to make a good decision. Please use the comments below.

Here are three that have caught my attention:

Generac 6598 3,100 PSI 2.7 GPM 212cc OHV Gas Powered Residential Pressure Washer I like the 212 cc Horizontal shaft engine.

Simpson MSH3125-S MegaShot 3100 PSI 2.5 GPM Honda GCV190 Engine Gas Pressure Washer. Again it’s got a horizontal engine.

Briggs & Stratton 20570 Powerflow Plus 5.0-GPM 3000-PSI Gas Pressure Washer with 875 Series 190cc Engine and Push Button Electric Start. This is Briggs & Stratton’s newest model.

Here are pictures of the three:
