We use our pressure washer primarily for our rear deck, pool, and areas around the pool. The Husky 1800 PSI powerwasher gets lots of use in the summer season cleaning off leaves, dirt, mud, from those areas. It has strong enough pressure to take off lose paint and does a good job on our pool sides areas. It has two nozzles and power settings to give you control of your power washing. I have little experience powerwashing and this model was suggested to me and seems to do a good job. It seems more effective than I would have expected in this price range. We have had it this our third summers of heavy usage with no problem with reliability or durability. It is fairly portable and the largest challenge is getting the water and power supply moved around and not tangled in all the areas we would like to use the powerwasher to service. We also use it for other pavement areas and clapboard on the back of our house.
