Need help selecting a pressure washer!! (a little lengthy)

Rest of time I clean houses, decks, concrete pads and the rest of stuff you can imagine.
Been there and done that as well. We used to wash a lot of car dealerships and some big rig outfits, not to mention Casino shuttle buses, so at times we would double up on pressure lines to get 100 plus ft. The longer length was necessary in those instances.

The owner of the auction was big into horses, so I can say for sure, the worst thing we had to do was pressure out his horse trailers. Ha, I don't think I will ever miss that....

Take care

Ralph, with water blow back I can just imagine cleaning out a horse trailer. I thought transmission fluid was bad but HORSE.
