Since it's snowing, looks like we will have to wait a while before we try it out.

I've been shopping for one too, Lowe's had a 2300 lb. for $299 (bought a new refrigerator instead )

Four wheeler washing would be much easier with a pressure washer.

Dubz,

How do you like your pressure washer attachment? I'm thinking about looking for a pressure washer and wondering what would work for me..... I sure would like one with the hot water heater - but WOW are they expensive!!

You can use the drain part of your water heater for hot water. If you want the water less hot just get one of the splitters for a garden hose and change the ends of a short hose so you can hook one end to the water heater and one end to the cold water hose outlet. Then just run the single line to the pressure washer and use the valves on each side of the splitter ( outlet on the splitter which is now backwards) to control the temp of water. I did this at our cabin with a portable electric water heater for a shower.

They are great. A house painter friend came over with a Big Honda washer, and I did the bottom of my 66. Had already scraped off the crud, and sprayed on a mixture of gunk and mineral spirits. Then went to town. Wore a cheap rainsuit and got on the floor. Did another application with a heavy detergent degreaser, Formula 8, and blasted again. Floors had been repaired before me, but the remainder was the original red oxide and it looked like new. They are great! Sure is nice to be able to do repairs and installations on a clean, painted undercarriage!
