    me and a friend have been looking for a pressure washer and I came across some used ones at home depot of all places.. for some reason they had a rather large selection of "reconditioned" ones... we picked up a devilbiss 2600psi 6.5hp honda powered one...... new they run 699, this was marked down to 550... and SHOCKINGLY it was an additional 40% off THAT price! and came with a warranty just like a new one. Its gonna come in REAL handy for cleaning engines/trannys/tc's and frames.. something im going to get REAL good at in the following weeks (project truck)...

    anyone else get a lot of use from theirs? what PSI, brand, etc?

    also what chemicals do you find work best?

    I am jealous. I use my bro-in-laws with cold water and no chemicals and I am always amazed at how clean it gets! It almost makes getting muddy MORE fun.

    That's probably going to be one of the better investments.
