I have a Generac gasoline power washer you can borrow.

NOPE!


It is always cheaper for me to just go buy a tool rather than borrow one.
I have a power washer and there is a car wash down the street and I have a high HP Honda engine I can spend 250 on and have a 4000-4500 psi pump.

That would cut tires off a rim I would bet

I use my gas powered pressure washer a lot. End of last summer I used it to blow all the dirt away and below the ground on about a 100 small stumps from 3” to 8” out of a fence line I took down. Power wash them, they are clean and when dried they don’t **** the chain saw chain up at all.

It was a hell of a lot faster than a shovel and when dried they were clean to cut below the ground.

It’s a Honda and supposedly 3500 psi. I would like to try a 4500 to 5000 one someday!

I wonder what psi would start to gouge aluminum.

That be a scary high psi I imagine. I have never seen a power washer over my 3500 but have heard they get dangerous at 4000 psi!

I looked at mine again and it’s only a 3300 psi. After I bought my last one I found out that the GPM matters a lot on them. I would like to run a big powerful one.

I just have a cheap electric one and it stripped a lot of the paint off of my old Ford. That's not saying much though. I'm just wary of using them now since I've scored deck boards and stripped paint.
