I have a couple.

One is a Honda gx200 with Annovi pump. Fuggin motor gives me more grief than any other gas motor I have. Does good when it runs.

Other is a little Costco Yamaha job. Used it today on the boat. That machine always starts right up and runs like a song.

To be fair, the Honda likely needs a new gas tank. Has some rust. I've taken the tank off a couple times and put a little diesel in it with a few cups of gravel and shake it like a baby. Cleans it up but it's still runs like [bleep]. Probably should replace the carb.

5 HP Honda with a Karcher; also a Honda on my 5KW generator.

Far easier to start than any Briggs & much quieter; hard to make sense of any other engine if a Honda is available.

I run a Mi-T-M electric washer.

I plumbed the house with a hot and cold outdoor bib, so overall it's a great set up.

I have one with a Honda GVC160, pretty standard motor

I bought it at an auction, got it home and the motor was so tight you could pull start it, took it apart and got a drill to spin the motor, got it loosened up , put it back together and it started on the 3rd pull. Has always started by the 3rd pull since and that was 2 years ago.

My son bought a Costco 3100 PSI model with the Yamaha engine and it has run like a champ for several years now. I have borrowed it a couple times and it really gets the job done. One thing I found out years ago is with much more pressure than the 3100 it will blow gravel out of my exposed aggregate driveway and throw it who knows where- usually right at my car and truck no matter where I park them...

One thing he clued me into was the round flat surface attachment for doing decks and driveways. Man, those things really speed things up and keep you a lot cleaner and drier while doing flat surfaces. Probably cut down doing the driveway by half or more and did a great job. I think they are about $65 on Amazon and worth every penny...

I bought an undercarriage attachment - its on 2 wheels with 4 nozzles, connects to your pressure washer hose and lets you wash under your car or whatever. It was like $40

I’m in high cotton....For the moment.

I have the same machine that you have.
5years old I think. Works great


That's what I have too. A 3600 psi Simpson with the industrial rated Honda. Was about $600 at Sam's club a few years ago but they sold me the display model for $250 because the hose was missing. Only one I've ever had but it seems to work well.

Just looked at the simpson washers at a local farm/ranch store yesterday and today. Wife said Costco has a husqvarna pressure washers in stock also I may go look into.

Let me know how you like the simpson. Will be replacing mine in the next week to 2 weeks.


Costco had $80 off their husky washer. After my experience with a my snowblower I said fugk and no to that. Wife said it had a ton of bad reviews to boot.

That's not very encouraging - I just bought the Husky from Costco but haven't opened the box yet. Should I return it?

I bought one of these. https://www.homedepot.com/p/RYOBI-3000-PSI-2-3-GPM-Honda-Gas-Pressure-Washer-RY803001/303316335
Ryobi with a Honda engine. Starts easy and works fine for me. I clean siding, deck & porch, driveway and wash vehicles with it. I waited a year after my neighbor bought one to see how it worked.

Up to you, obviously...Pretty good information provided from members who are happy with a Simpson or Dewalt with CAT pump pressure washers.

YMMV seems appropriate.

Right now, I can’t think of a reason why I need one.

I doubt I would use one much.

Generac 3100psi. Had it for 5 years and runs like a charm

Ha, not for me to say! But I'm not buying anything Husky. Sample of one with my snowblower, but that was enough for me.

Good thing my saws are all Stihl. laugh
