Question In search of a new electric pressure washer

I have a gasoline washer and it works well, but i get tired of messing with it, I bought a small [1600 psi] ryobi and it has been working pretty well, but is loosing pressure, I'm on the hunt for a new electric. I would like to stay under a couple hundred bucks, ..........My problem is that the price range goes from under a 100 for a harbor freight [portland] on up in price to the " american made" [I'm not real sure that there are any "american made" out there any more..........

They all seem to have more positive than negative reviews...........

So I just thought I might get a few opinions here.........after all, i see a lot of mud covered blazers in some of these threads : and there is no shortage of opinions.......

YARD FORCE 1600 PSI All-in-1 Electric Pressure Washer.
I use this one at work to clean air conditioning units. I've also used it to clean the engine on my Blazer. It's small and compact. I use a 6 in 1 tip with it instead of buying several different tips.

Thanks Gold, that's what i wanted to hear, I actually have researched the yard force, I think LOwes sells them..............so far yard force is my first choice, #2 is probably the harbor freight portland.........

there just aren't a lot of moving parts to these things, the pump is the expensive part, and 90% [or more] of them are from the same Chinese factory.......

I always like the hunt better than the kill anyway......

If I'm not mistaken Yard Force is made in China too.

Yes it probably is, with things changing in world trade, maybe we will be able to buy more MADE IN AMERICA, in a few years............or at least have more of a choice.......

I did some work on my little ryobi, and got it doing a pretty good job again....[ it has enough pressure to sheer small weeds in my drive way]..but I will probably go with one of the yard force machines when it gives up.......
