Thoughts on 3000 psi pressure washer

Anyone have any thoughts / recommendations on a 3000 psi gas pressure washer in the $500 range?

Canadian Tire's new flyer has a couple of models @ 40% off,

Briggs & Stratton 3000 PSI Gas Pressure Washer on sale for $449 (was $799)

Simoniz Platinum 3000 PSI Gas Pressure Washer with Pump (kohler) on sale for $449 (was $799)

I also see references in posts about "horizontal pump" being better, but doesn't really say what that means / what to look for specifically.

Any recommendations / guidance appreciated - I have a crappy electric one, but its really only decent for washing the car and rinsing off the patio.

I need something that can actually power wash my interlock (remove the polymeric sand), concrete around pool, etc.. etc..

Both model have crappy residential axial pump. Buy whatever is available on the shelf, you should be fine.

I have the last generation simoniz gas washer and a 16 inch surface washer. It cleans mold of interlock in one go.

So no real winner aside from 40% off? Ultimately if it does the job, and I don’t have to replace it anytime soon I’ll be happy.

Costco had a Huskvanna gas pressure washer, I took a pic but erased it a bit ago. Will snap a pic tomorrow if I go and post the details.
