power washer
« on: April 17, 2020, 10:57:47 AM »
I am boosting the economy by ordering a new power washer. I've had a small electric one for like 10 years, and it is barely working at this point. I saw this Husqvarna at Costco before the virus and would have bought it for sure if we were not in Wisconsin - now I'm really glad I didn't :p because it is $80 off. Looks like a pretty great deal - dlso I ordered it!

Do not follow where the path may lead. Go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.

don't. It is a waste of money; even if you think you will not need the extra power of a gas powered unit, sooner or later you will.

We used electric on the farm for decades.  Cut through seasons and sometimes years of industrial level grease and grime.  Also, I kinda don't want another engine to maintain.  Like I am not some sort of nut that uses a battery lawn mower or anything, but no more engines.  I use the neighbor's engine based washer as needed, but would like something easy, convenient and maybe wall mounted to clean rims and power foam the cars when I wash them.  I get ya though.  The engine based are lots of whoop ass.

Meh... I said that until I bought an electric mower.  And then an electric trimmer... then a snowblower.  You can't convince me that there aren't electric models on the market with the same power now.  My boss is buying an electric riding mower for his 2 acre yard.  I think it's a myth that you can no longer get the same power from electric.

i've got a few ryobi 40volt lawn tools and they work great.  I've never used a powerwasher but I feel like I would want a super high powered one and would need to compare the top-end electric to gas.
