My parents hotsy is 1 1/2 years old, gas engine, diesel heater. The heater started leaking diesel this morning, so that's pooched already, worked great when it worked.
It could be just a piece of soot or bit of rust fell down over the fuel nozzle. This would cause it not to spray properly and fuel to run out bottom of gun assembly

Got out my mack 3000 i bought at canadiantire 5 years back or so ..for about $250 bucks closing out sale. Ran great for the 2 hours it took to blow of my driveway and blast out the cracks in the asphalt. Not sure how long it will last... it was cheap like borsch.

What model of the stihl washer are you guys running? I'm thinking the 130 might be suited for using up at the lake for washing quads and odd jobs at cabin washing siding and decks.

We have been running Magikist pressure washers on the farm for 30 years electric motor with diesel burner has wheels can move it around easily hose reel on it, many hours washing barns and equipment and always keeps running. turbo nozzles cut down on the amount of time washing just have to be careful what you are using those on as she will peel some paint or stickers....

i have had a Simonize for about 5-8 years now and been a great little machine, its the higher pressure gas model.
I've had one for about as long, this thing can strip paint. The old man wont use it for washing his truck, he's scared he's gonna strip his paint off.

I broke the wand last summer and picked up another at Can-Tire.

At a fraction of what the big name ones cost I'll happily be hanging on to this one. AWESOME pressure washer that wont break the bank.

This is the same basic one I had. Older model and has a Honda engine on it vs the kohler. Was a good unit until the wife froze the pump and cracked it.

Got this one couple years now. Works great. Keep an eye out as it goes on sale for 499 once in a while. The foam cannon it comes with works awesome.

that's the thing with Canadian Tire, if I see something I want I always add it to my wishlist and wait for it to be on sale.

Have fun trying to find one of these little guys. I tried nearly every dealer from Fort McMurray to Kamloops along said route, and everyone had the same answer. Can’t get anything until the end of July. I got one for my dads birthday in Enderby, of all places. Leave it to a small town to save the day. They have one left, after mine lol.
