    looking to buy a new pressure washer i have a tech clean surface cleaner and been told that the washer needs roughly 200 bar to operate this cleaner efficiently im looking to spend around £500 obviously 1st choice would be honda but there isnt that many for sale at the minute 2nd hand, there a few others iv been looking at on ebay but iv had a bad experience with those chonda type washers before (pump whent twice within months) can any one recommend a washer in this sort of price range that is reliable

    To drive a fsc efficiently would need at least a 21 lpm pump. This one in the vid is running 42 lpm at 4000 psi :D

    To be honest you will be hard pushed to get any decent Honda for only £500

    What did you have before?

    Well spending only £200 or less on a new washer is not going to get you much is it? :rolleyes:
