I purchased one last night, but thinking about returning it and purchasing a Pressure Pro professional/commercial pressure washer for about a $100 more. It has a Honda GX 6.5 HP motor, and CAT pump with aluminum chassis. It is rated at 2700 PSI, 3.0 GPM vs the RIDGID 3300 PSI, 3.0 GPM. It will be for home use… boat, cars, dirtbike, garage, driveway, sidewalks, and 2 story stucco home with flat roof, so I need at least a 25’ to 30’ reach in water pressure. I know the Pressure Pro is probably better built, but has less pressure and slightly more expensive. Should I just stick with the 3300? My fear is the pumps built for RIDGID are not as good or of the same quality as their normal line of pumps. I usually buy entry level professional or prosumer tools because they last for years with out problems. My Stihl FS-80 Weed trimmer has been going strong for 12 + years and have never had an issue. This will be my first pressure washer, and I don’t want to buy another for at least 15 – 20 years, but I also have a budget. Any feedback would be appreciated.
No announcement yet.
