Ended up going with a Ridgid 3000psi model with a subaru engine and a CAT pump. It's a 'commercial' rated model, So hopefully I'll have good luck with it.
The ole duktwk had 2 flat tires and has been sitting for months. I used it to clean the mud off the backside of the wheels and the mud and junk off the bottom of the duktwk. Funny thing is it had one severely blown out tire, and the front right was rotted and starting to fail. It blew out so bad the mesh cable was flapping off about a foot long. Luckily it happened when I was going to get the mail (Which I'm starting to think is a deceptively dangerous piece of road). I was only going about 30, so no big deal. But that happened last fall and the duktwk hasn't moved since.
Since it had two flat tires, I had to put it in hover mode for a few days until we get the new tires mounted...
Sharon ordered some new tires tonight and we'll get them on in the next few days, then get it smogged again. Once that's done I'm going to do a little cleanup work on it and paint it in a desert camo theme....
Putting the new tires on it will probably quadruple the value of the vehicle, but it's Sharon's baby and we'll be keeping it in running order till the dinosaurs quite giving us gasoline to run in it.
Oh yeah, this is about Pressure washers, right? Well to keep the pic police happy, here's the new one. Seems to work great. Way more powerful than the old one. Have to keep two hands on the nozzle.
And here's the old one. Wanna know whats funny? After I got done using the new one on the duktwk, it must have got jealous. I decided to give it one more shot to see if I could get it started and it started on the 3rd pull. Go figure. At any rate, the new one is more powerful and I'm going to need that for cleaning the hull of the sailboat, so whatever. I'm giving the old one to some friends who have done us a lot of favors over the years, so it's a win/win in my book
