Pressure washers. PLEASE HELP to make a decision between two pressure washers.

Hi Guys,

Can’t decide which one to pick between these two. I like how Ryobi has Idle function but Karcher should have a better pump.

Please let me know which one you would recommend.

Ryobi RY80940 http://www.homedepot.ca/product/ryobi-3 ... her/818254

or

Karcher G 3050 OHC http://www.costco.ca/Karcher-G-3050-OHC ... 69815.html

Thank you in advance.

For gas pressure washers you need to do a lot of googling and research what engine they are using, cheap gas engines are common today and they perform poorly and die prematurely.
In fact in Rand McNally they wear hats on their feet and hamburgers eat people

They both have exactly the same Honda engine.

Thats a bonus, do you know if this engine is a good engine? Don't assume its the best just because it says Honda, do your research. Also Costco will likely have a better warranty process, and the Ryobi comes with a 3 year warranty, which sounds good, you may be able to use a credit card to add an extra year or buy an extended.
Also you have to be sure your continuing your costco membership, and check reviews online for both washers, and so on.
