    Any pics of the bench?
    Lots of power is good, more is better, too much is just right.

            Sounds like something WFT's would say!
            If my words don't make sense, try reading them backwards.

                  It's not about the engine, it's about the pump. By far, the weakest link in a pressure washer system is the pump, and a good pump will often cost as much or more than the engine, and be far less reliable.

                    Found this out with my Karcher when it stopped pressuring up. Called the repair shop and before I could even tell them why I was calling they told me what my problem was and even knew the model of my washer. Must be a common problem with my unit. New pump (from another manufacturer) to go on my nice Honda engine is probably going to cost my around $200. Almost enough to make me consider buying a new unit. Mine is about 7 years old and gets very light use.

                      CAT brand pump's are pretty excellent if i recall.

                      But I want medium high to high pressure, combined with a ton of flow..
