Keep your mind like an umbrella, it only works if its open... Continually learning.
For the deck... I'm good with it lifting some old paint. The restaurant cleaning will welcome the extra pressure too.

I think nozzle selection has a lot to do it.

But good tip on letting it dry... the wife seems to think I can wash it one day and she can paint the next.
Mine lifts the old paint for sure, I'm talking about the paint that is stuck. lol

I didn't ask for your life story, just answer the question!
I bought a 2000 or so psi Ryobi from Home Depot just to wash the mud off my SxSs... I don’t even touch the gas one anymore. The electric one does everything around the house that the gas one used to do.

Its probably better to be self deprecating than self defecating.
Put it on the bent up trailer and drag it closer?
If we didn't have the dog, I wouldn't mind washing that much grease & grime onto the lawn.. its such a crappy lawn... but its Unfortunately right where the doggo likes to hang out 🙄 I'll just need to borrow my buddys gas unit.

I have no personal experience with electric pressure washers. They tend to be smaller, less powerful units than what you can get with a gasoline powered model. Then there is the having to drag not only a hose around, you now have an electrical cord to drag around as well. That being said, if an electrical unit meets your needs, then go with it.

Because of the need for more power and the lack of desire to drag a cord around, I went with gas.

I landed on this one... not really sure if the wife was happy about it being a mother's day gift. She doesn't know I have something else for her... just gonna play this one out a bit more.

Toonces drives a Ranger . . . . just not very well.

I tried something like that one time.

Didn't see the wife for three days.

On day four, I was able to barely open my left eye . . .

Yeah @RobbieD but I learned long ago that it's ok. But... there better be another gift she will like. She wanted a deck box.
