Has anyone ever used one of those garden hose pressure washer converter wands?
 
I'm in the market for a pressure washer for household use, but would rather not spend $250 on a washer. I was wondering if anyone has ever used one of those wands that you can connect to your garden hose that makes the water pressure increase. Some like this:

I picked up a Honda 2500 psi pressure washer off craigslist for $250
Runs of gasoline, works great....looked brand new
My hose is 80 psi, even with an adapter the hose is no match

The hose is no match for what? I've been looking on craigs and have found a few decent ones. I'm thinking about splurging and just buying a brand new craftsman for $269.99. It's a 2550.

The garden hose is no match for the pressure washer

The electric ones they sell at Lowes for $99 for 1600 psi and $169 for 2000 psi are pretty good for the money. They are lightweight and you do not have to fool around with oil or gas. They are pretty handy and a decent compromise. I am sure other stores have comparable models like Karcher, etc.
