Hey Young Gun the thing is nobody makes a pressure washer all of the companies selling them just assemble them from parts and pieces purchased from other companies. by example all have General,Giant,AR or Cat pumps plus some other lesser known brands. HOnda and Subaru engines with a few Briggs thrown in for good measure. The big guys are Mi-T-M and SImpson and they assemble most for DeWalt,John Deere, Husqvarna etc. SImpson makes a good unit as does MI-T-M. Mi-T-M stands behind their product real well I am a service center for them so I can attest. Personnally I dont like axial pumps which is a type not a brandnor do I like Cat pumps and any HOnda engine with a plastic fuel tank has a plastic cam shaft

our pressure washing setups

Currently we have 2 machines both are belt driven one is an mitm and the other is a machine we assembled. We purchased an 18 horse power horizontal shaft Briggs and Stratton motor, purchased the pulleys, a General ts2021 pump and an unloader.

The 18 HP machine is a trailer mounted pressure washing setup with a 100 gallon tank (buffer), unloader is plumbed through bypass back to the tank. Two hose reels, one for pressure and one for supply back to the tank. Specs on the big machine are 3500 psi @ 5.6 GPM.

The mitm is a 4 GPM pressure washer, mainly a back up.

Back to your question the best deals I have seen online are from a company called "pressuretek" (Google them) they are dealers of PressurePro machines which use all professional grade components. Hope this helped.

Equipments like: Moisture Probes, Meteres (or Meters), Industrial Dehumidifier and Air mover dryers
Probes are required to assess the extent of the damage and carpet drying; Moisture Metres are required to assess with the degree of moisture and find the source of the flood, which is helpful knowledge for the client in preventing the damage from reoccurring; Industrial Dehumidifier Rental are required to remove the access moisture from the air and surounding surfaces such as flooded carpet, walls subfloor and structure; and Air mover dryers are required in: drying carpet after water damage, to dry exchange directly to a carpet, underlay or with the aid of an injeter dry system behind the wet walls. These are often referred to as carpet dryers. Although the can be used for other purposes there primary use is drying carpet.

(Our flood restoration technicians are all equipped with these important money saving devices).

It all depends on what your trying to clean. For flat-surface we use a Hydro-tech SCU series 8 gpm dual operator. Our burner gets us to right around 200 degrees.
