      I'd like to hear about the pressure washers you guys are using, as well as your experiences with them. I'm in the market for one prior to my R's arrival.
      Here's the one I have. Easy on the budget and nice and compact so it's easy to store on a shelf in the garage. Not as bad ass as a 4k psi gas powered one, but it's plenty for my use.

      Here's the foam cannon I use.

      something just makes me nervous about electricity and water. I am sure it is 100% safe, but just the thought.

      Question about the foam cannon. Do you still need to wash by hand or just use the cannon and let it sit and then rinse?

      If you don't mind me asking, how powerful is the pressure washer you are using on the car? I'd like to buy one of these for around the house, but if I can also use it to help wash the car, it would be a bonus.
      I just bought this one. Cheapest Home Depot has. While i'm sure its not the best quality, it does the trick of washing my car just fine so far. You can safely go a little higher pressure too from what I've read.

      I have the Ryobi 1600 from HD. I got it on sale for $80 a month ago. Works great for washing the car. Haven't had a chance to test it on anything like decks or siding however I live in an apartment so it really only needs to clean the car. I probably will end up upgrading the hose that it comes with. I also have the foam cannon from Amazon, and again, works great for what I need to do.
