Go to the post office and get a new movers kit and there is usually a 10% off coupon in there from Lowes.

Gas Honda is the way to go... If you use it for your drive way, get the cone shaped/spiral end, it doesnt leave lines on your drive way or side walks.

That's the route I took. Got a Troy Built with Honda engine good for 2500 psi. I remember using an electric one years ago and thought it was kinda neat, but nothing like the gas version. I wouldn't waste my time with the electric one. It has come in handy for all types of jobs around the house.

Gas powered Honda.. 3000 psi... Plenty of adapters to adjust the spray and works for about everything from washing off mud to cleaning a mahogany deck.

In the winter run anti-freeze through the lines and try to store inside to prolong life and prevent pipes from cracking.

Decent shipping and no tax from ..

Not really. For greasy messes yes, absolutely, but for regular mud and crap a high GPM low pressure setup is the best. High pressure (over 1500 PSI) don't do much for washing cars other than damage things.

If you do any winter wheeling or driving in salt the hot water is awesome.

I have a 6GPM 1000 PSI car wash setup and a 3000 PSI Karcher industrial hot water setup.

Yeah things like road salt and oil/grease would be the main benefit.
