Looking for a good pressure washer.

Any suggestions. It will be to replace a Troy-Bilt 3000 psi unit.

I can't recommend a particular brand or model, but I will say that when you look at them make sure you see the make and model # of the pump. Then go home and check to see if it is rebuildable and that you can get individual parts. Personally, I've never seen or heard of a pressure washer being junked that still had a good pump. Engines are cheap and easy to replace, so if the pump can be repaired or rebuilt the unit should last you forever.

I have this one for 4 years and have used it quite a bit for hours on end. The handle design was a bit awkward but they have since changed it to the more ergonomic design you now see all over the place. The motor/pump make up is very good and I never had trouble starting it. If I had to buy again I would not hesitate for a second.
