Default Power Washer

Looking to get a power washer to clean my blazer off after the mud bogs. I'm getting tired of taking it to the car wash and throwing money away. Looking for something fairly cheap no to expensive. Bang for your buck kinda thing. What would be a good choose. Is an electric better than gas, what kinda psi rating should i be looking for?

well electrics are good if you get the big dog ones. I used a electric one with something like a 6 or 8hp motor i think wash boat bottoms with it and its better then my 10hp honda

Park your rig over a lawn sprinkler for a couple hours.


Bonus points if it's a neighbor's lawn sprinkler

Gas might not be bettrer but you can take the gas one to the mud run with you along with a couple 55 gallon drums of water and get it fairly clean before leaving. If running in clay it comes off way better before it has any chance of drying on.
