Any good deals on reliable pressure washers in Sabaneta? i.e. Linares, Pappaterra, Inoa and Reyes, Llibre?

I need to buy one here in SD as well. I was thinking Amazon but I may just bite the bullet and get a little electric 2000K lb. pressure one and toss it when it breaks.

lots of gasoline operated pressure washers

Yep The only caveat I would throw out here is don't buy one used; especially the gasoline ones.

I've had a few pressure washers experiences here, and I've seen how easy it is to screw them up. I'd bet that more than a few of the gas ones have pump problems from not releasing the pressure based on the instructions.

I've seen electric ones used once, put away for a month or so, and when you go to use them again, they're DOA due to being improperly stored.

If you buy a new one (either type) read the instructions veeery carefully and follow them to the letter.

Let me add to the list of "sensitive" pressure washers: 1) the less expensive models (even of good brands) have small print concerning usuage in hours and life span. On line reviews then explain the difference, ie "use it like a professional, every day, say "adios" to that machine.
2) Length and type of electric extension cable can affect usage.
3) Same as #2 above for water supply.
4) Over heating and stopping in heat (Sav. Ga. DR temps are higher).

I bought one from Amazon two years ago after doing a lot of research. I bought a Simpson with a Honda motor. Even after paying the shipping and tax it was cheaper than buying a cheap Truper or Karcher that are available on the north coast. I'd rather buy quality than shop local.
