    I've got a similar Greenworks pressure washer ( https://amzn.to/2KhnJJX ) and love it. Here are some other useful items to go along with it:

    Foam Canon: https://amzn.to/2rExvzt Just be careful not to overtighten it on the plastic bottle or it WILL snap

    90 Degree Nozzle: https://amzn.to/32FnFKC Must-have for hitting your undercarriage

    No more crouching when washing under the truck. :D

    :cheers:

    Lol not at the moment.

    Correct, just use a car wash liquid with high foaming properties like this one for max results: https://amzn.to/2Ki8alh

    Depends on what you mean by around the house, as long as it's blasting off superficial dirt you're good. If you want to clean sidewalks/driveway or peel off years of gunk off patio furniture that PW far exceeds the specs of car washing. Any of the cheap electric PW have plenty of PSI for car washing, the greater the GPM the greater the cleaning ability. Higher end electrics run up to around +2GPM get as high a GPM as the budget will allow. If you're wanting to do foam cannon, the higher the GPM the better the foam.

    Look at Ryobi and Greenworks for cheaper units because they have standard fittings that you can swap out for aftermarket hoses and guns, which are well worth it (many of the Chinesium units will need adapters to add standard fittings). Heavy duty around the house cleaning needs well higher than 2GPM and are generally gas models.

    It’s mainly going to be for washing cars, maybe clean some dirt and mud from driveways nothing more, maybe clean furniture at the max

    I’ve had great luck over the years with my gilmour Foammaster (the $50+ metal one, not the cheap plastic one Chemical Guys and some others sell). No pressure washer needed. You have to use the right soap however....I use the Chemical guys honeydew snow foam, works the best in it by far.

    I bought this pressure washer approximately 1.5 year ago when it was on sale for $70. It works great and enough power for the cost; however, I hated the adjustable nozzle and upgraded to a Ryobi attachment that works much better. Plus, it adds the quick release feature. As for foam canon, I went cheap and I bought the Amazon canon, which also works great. No complaints for a weekly wash setup.

    I got a Sun Joe electric off of Amazon a couple of years ago and a Chemical Guys foam cannon. I think all were under $180.

    Definitely get the 90 degree fitting:thumbsup:.

    Works great!

    I use an old troybilt pressure washer from Lowes but I recommend checking out mtm hydro. That’s where I got my foam cannon.. pretty sure they make them for chemical guys
