I also make sure the plug with the circuit breaker does NOT get wet with spray as I've seen people using extension cord after extension cord with the plug just laying on the ground getting wet.

Mebbe I've just been lucky, but mine is still working and starts right up, good pressure, etc... I just did my terrace the other day and was super happy the thing started up as I don't wanna go back to the bucket and brush...

I have a 3 yr old Honda. Its been good. I needed to tear the carb down and clean it this year. Completely plastic carb. Once I did that it ran like a top. I got it on clearance from lowes 3 yrs ago.

The gas ones usually don't last because the ethanol in the gas plugs up the main jet in the carburetor over time. You can order a new carb online for $15 to $30 depending on which motor you have, and spend about 20 minutes replacing it. Cheap easy fix.

Fortunately there is a gas station near my parents that sells ethanol free. Worth it especially for something that isnt frequently used

Exactly. Look online for a used one that doesn't work. My dad gave me his old power washer that didn't work and bought an electric one. I replaced the $20 carb and it works great. All my small engine fuel gets treated with startron fuel treatment... lawn mower, log splitter, lawn tractor, and now the pressure washer. They all start and run fine.

Are you asking for a gas or for an electric?

I've never been satisfied with electric so I suppose gas. But if someone can show me an electric one that puts out real pressure I'm game

I have both. I don't think you'd change your mind about the electric washers. I only bought one to do my vinyl siding. That, it does well.

I have a Simpson with a Honda gx on it thats worked flawlessly for 5 years. Gets used a lot on equipment and I use it monthly to clean chicken coops and goat barns. It must have a couple hundred hours on it by now. Been through a few hoses 2 wands and the pump blew out the little threaded fitting for the soap intake line once but if it ever goes titts up I'll be buying another just like it.

I have an old electric one that I am dissatisfied with and would be interested in giving away. Sounds like not a good fit for you, though.
