 Best Pressure Washer for Father's Day???

OK guys, I've been let out of time out. The "holder of the check book & CFO" has authorized a pressure washer for Father's Day and I get the pick it out within reason. "Tim Allen Specials" are out. I have more or less been authorized upto $800. So what is the "Tractor Point.com best buy" for a good pressure washer? So far I found a Generac Model 1417 on Amazon.com . Honda 6.5 hp, 2500 psi, 3 gpm, 50 hose, adjustable pump, 4 pressure tips, commercial axial cam oil bath commercial pump, $749 complete delivered to my door. Any suggestions, comments, and tips very much appreciated.

These look really good. Honda GX engines, good quality triplex pumps with ceramic plungers, adjustable pressure, commercial quality hoses, optional CAT pumps, great warranties. I'm buying one this weekend.

Don't know if you are near one of the three Costco's in Tennessee, but they have a pressure washer in stock here at the local store with a Honda engine and I think the price was under $400

Might be worth a look.

Those costco machines are probably Karchers. My neighbor bought one of those and I borrowed it a couple of weeks ago. Although it was a decent machine there were a few things I didn't care for. For one, the hose was kind of a hard inflexible plastic like material that didn't like to roll up. Also, the quick disconnects were not very good - one of them got stuck on me. The engine is a Honda GC which is a residential grade engine, not the better GX engine. I prefer a pressure washer that has an adjustable pressure feature - the Karcher was around 2500 psi which wasn't enough for our concrete driveway pad and too much for our wood deck. The pump also isn't built as well as the better triplex pumps with ceramic plungers. All of those issues aside I have to say the Karcher did operate just fine and is a good value.

kwschumm, I have been looking at these guys too, but I figured shipping would be prohibitive. Did you order the pressure washer yet? I was looking at Model PJ # 3003 or 2703A7-P with the Deluxe Package B. It looks like the shipping may be $65 for the 2703 but am not sure about the 3003. The 2703CS looks like a nice unit to but not sure if I need that much pump.

 Best Pressure Washer for Father's Day???

I haven't ordered yet. Last week I called to ask a couple of questions and was going to place an order but the lady said they would be having a Fathers day sale this weekend and I could save some money by waiting. The prices are the same now as last week so I'm not sure what's up with that. I seem to remember her saying that the 2703 and 3003 were both $65 for shipping but I may be wrong. Old age and memory, etc. I was looking at the 3003 with the CAT pump upgrade but I may opt for the 2703. Both these units look to be comparable to the commercial grade Northern units for a couple hundred less. By the way, since they shipped disassembled I asked how much assembly there was and she said all you have to do is put on the wheels and the upper handle.

Just got off the phone with ProJet.com and it is $65 shipping for the Model 3003 and altogether it looks like $879.94 for the unit with the Deluxe B Package. I'm thinking about goin' for it. The treasurer has released funds and approval. What do you think?
