Brian, I can't really recommend anything in that price tier as I have no idea whats out there. If you are buying this time of year, you may be able to get a used 4 gpm machine for around that price from Craigs List or ebay.

After many emails today with Bob it was discovered that the arrow was facing the wrong way on the injector. I checked the orifice which was tight, and had already tried shooting it the "wrong" way, which apparently was the right way, without success. However will try again and see if theres suction without the tube on.
Have to say I used the simple green house and siding wash on the last 3-4 houses with great success. One house that had a ton of mildew, especially on the eaves, we added some bleach to the house wash and it was sparkling clean when done.

Hi Guys,

Hello sir, that is a on going problem with power washers the pump not working, than works sporadically. the main cause is leaving the pressure hose hooked up to the machine over a long period of ,not draining hose & machine, in the winter time the hose & pump willfreeze causing hose & pump to expand and burst. build up of calcium deposits from hard water clogging up pump nozzle,valves in the gun handle,clogging hose fittings and screens.one of these has to be your problem.you can find a parts brake down at KARCHER.COM.orRJ BOWERS.COM .
