    I need a pressure washer. I'll be using it to clean fences, decks, and driveways/walkways. I'll probobly use it to clean siding and a car or two also. What PSI should I be looking for, and what brands do you recomend?

    Honda powered is what i have and i bought it at Home Depot. Make sure you winterize it though or you will be replacing the wand next year.

    we have a harbor freight by me. i dont mind it. good place to get a single use tool that you plan on tossing after yer done. My friend remarked that the whole store looked like it should be stamped 'Made in China'.

    Yeah, i've been to Harbor Freight. I'm pretty sure it's all Chinese made stuff. I need something that'll last close to a lifetime though.

    How do you winterize it?

    Well, I have a Craftsmen, Briggs motor and it has been a workhorse. 2950 with three attachments for pressure, one is for low pressure that is used for chemicals. Has two bottles attached to the carry cradle to dispense cleaners for the varity of applications mentioned. I have had this now for 4 years and never had any issues with it. On sale with Craftsmen Club card was 400.00
    And pretty much unless it;s stamped MADE IN THE USA, its MADE IN CHINA........ The port in CAL.
    is expected in increase from 20% to 70% import in the next 2 decades, saw this on the History Channel last night on its new show about trains and how the rails are used for the ports in Cal.....
