Default High pressure sprayer

I've had nothing but problems with these darn things. I have gone through 3 electric 1700-1900psi portable spray washers in the last 3 years. First 2 had crappy nozzles, the third one just blew the pump. WTF. I know I should have a gas unit to be serious,but I'm tryin to do my part for global warming and all that! First 2 were from Simoniz, the third one was Kodiak. Does anyone have any luck with these things?

For the most part they all have plastic impellors that wear out fast, especially with hard water.
You could add a pre filter to see if helps the pump last, not sure its worth it imo.

Best brand I have ever used. We still have ours from 1997 and it works great.

Never used one, but I've also read a lot of people liking Karchers.
