    looking at both Green Works and Ryobi pressure washers 18-1900 psi and 1.2-1.3 gpm any thoughts ? This is my first venture into PW and will be doing our cars and unfortunately our house too. Budget is 150.00 or less.

    For car washing you want higher GPM for washing/rinsing. For cleaning siding and sidewalks you want higher PSI.

    look into SunJoe. These seem like the best bang for the buck.

    I have a SunJoe SPX3000. It can easily handle washing cars, and can do some smaller jobs around the house. For car washing, GPM closer to 2.0 is ideal.....but not critical. The SPX3000 advertises 2030 PSI/1.76 GPM.....it does not hit either of those numbers in the real world. It will come in around 170.00, and would probably do what you need it to...at a price very close to your budget

    I'm going to look at SunJoe and see what they are like. I may have to revise my budget upwards by a little to get something decent. Thanks for the input. Still at least a good month away from really getting into detailing this season.

    Keep us posted how the Bissell works out.....I'm in the market for a new extractor, and the prices of some of them are outrageous

    Custom bug spat pattern hood, grill & bumper. Dead Live Oak leaf collection under hood, cowl and lower fenders. Beach sand custom floor covering.
    I'll second this. Lightweight, portable and durable. Just don't pull on the handle to get the hose stuck from under the tire like my wife did. Pull on the hose since the plastic handle breaks easily. Cheap and common part to replace.

    I have found that Sun Joe also has great customer service.
