    Thoughts on the pressure washer? I go back and forth on this one all the time.

    on one hand, it's small, electric, and relatively inexpensive. No motor to really worry about and it seems like it would store pretty well. Probably good for 80% of uses. On the other hand, a more expensive one with a motor will put out double the pressure. I just don't want to buy something and have buyers remorse because it isn't sufficient.

    Also, score on the socket set.

    “Buy once cry once”. I’ve replaced way to many electric over the years. Unless you’re worried about too much power, go gas. One less chord to untangle and work around. Plus it’s a great investment and you could always wash the house and other equipment. Some have 3 year warranty on the Honda motors.

    i was also bouncing back and forth between the 1900psi and the 1600psi. After a quick google search i found that 1900psi is the highest you want to use on a car (which is its primary purpose), so i went with the 1600. It was also $30 cheaper... I had a $150 gift card so i used the left over to help pay for the sockets. Walked out the door paying ~$30 after the gift card and military discount.

    Used it last night to wash Barnwell mud off my truck and it did a really good job! And its nice how small it is! doesnt need much space to store!

    Comes with a ridiculously long power cord and a 20' hose.

    My gas pressure washer has lasted 15 years and still starts fairly easy. Though over the years, I have replaced:
    The pump - now I have a 2600psi brass model
    The oil- changed it every year or more
    The carburetor - on Hondas it's easier to change than clean it (trust me).
    Fuel pump - that little plastic thing on the side of the engine
    Whole lot of fuel and air filters
    All the gaskets - they fall apart over time, along with fuel lines
    The pull cord - replaced with genuine camo paracord
    In retrospect, maybe an electric would have been easier, but I learned a lot about small engine repair.

    I bought that same one on Sunday, just for the purpose of washing the truck and using my foam cannon with. I have a commercial gas 4000psi 4gpm for the heavy duty stuff but its a pain to drag out and use to wash the truck with. That Ryobi one worked great for me for the truck washing purposes.

    Holy sh!t lmao

    I'm 100% positive an unsafe lane change is a criminal act and was the first criminal act shown.

    The ability to point fingers is best used when the finger can be pointed at oneself when the need arises otherwise it's just blaming instead of accurately placing guilt. You did an excellent example of blaming the other driver while you were complaining of everyone else blaming you.

    That is 100% false because you cut the guy off and he didn't do anything to you.

    Holy crap I'm already over $1,000 initial with nothing put into packaging, hardware, instructions, or shipping. I'm going to have to reduce the quantity of each piece significantly. I'm starting with 5 different parts instead of 4. The least expensive part is going to end up selling for around $50-$60 each and I was hoping for it to be half that so that's not good. I was hoping the customers viewpoint would be closer to "that's a no brainer" instead of a "do i really need that?" and at $60 I think it's closer to the latter. I'm positive I could get some great input on the matter here on TW if I wasn't so damn secretive about what the parts are. I know some fab shops sell stuff with a waiting period but I don't know if they typically require prepayment or not. It's all about initial outlay of my funds because I'm positive that part will sell even at $60.

    I shoulda gone to college hahahaha!!
