What kind of pressure washer do you have?

Hi everyone,

Iím looking for a pressure washer to use out in the chicken yard. I want to spray my open air/raised coops (wire floors), inside walls of my chicken coops/houses (as needed to remove poop and dirt), knock down cob webs on the outside of my chicken and anything else that needs high powered cleaning.

Right now I am cleaning and scrubbing everything by hand with soap and water and my back is killing me. It's taking me all day long to do my chores on the weekend in the chicken yard. I need to reduce my cleaning time and the amount of torture that I am putting on my back.

Who has a pressure washer? What kind of pressure washer would you suggest me to purchase so that I can take care of this type of work in the chicken yard?

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

For those jobs you would want a gas pressure washer. Almost any HP/Pressure will do, but the more pressure and GPM (gallons per minute), the faster you will get the job done.
For what you described, I would be looking at something 5-7hp maybe.

There are many pressure washers available in the market but you can get a quality one which could fulfill your needs. I would like to suggest at least a 2400 PSI/ 3-4 gallon a minute. I found this page http://www.best-pressure-washer-reviews.com/ which has excellent reviews about best presser washers according to their characteristics and rating, you read it and get more idea which one would be best for you. Good luck!
