Good deal? Hot Water 5.5 GPM @ 3500 PSI for $700

I found a local Pressure Washer for sale with a Honda GX630 motor and Karcher pump and burner - HDS 5.5/35 Pe Cage 5.5 GPM @ 3500 PSI. It is mounted in the back of a van for mobile detailing I believe. He is selling it for $700 and says he can show me that it runs. I looked this model up and they sell for nearly $12,000 new. Anyone have any experience with this particular unit?

I currently run a 5 gpm 3000 psi cold water unit and would love to be able to do more commercial work with a hot water unit.

Thank you for your helpful input!

Seems to good to be true but for $700 and it’s not too bad you can fix some minor problems and still make out.


That is what I was thinking… The guy had the ad labeled as a Pressure Pro 6012PRO-10G, which retail for a little over $6,000. But after looking at the pictures it looks to be like the model above, with a retail price of nearly $12,000. It’s worth a shot I suppose!

Did you buy it yet ?

Uggghhhh… well, I cleared off the trailer, got ready to pick it up and the guy marked the pressure washer as sold… then he wouldn’t message me back. He must have sold it before I could get there… I was going to take $1000 cash with me just in case there was others there… oh well.

Yeah, those kinds of deals tend to evaporate. Who knows it may not have been real or may have been stolen.

Right when they start that craigslist bidding stuff. I walk away. They tried that with me on a Gravely walk behind tractor trencher. I said no.

But I’ve also bought some really amazing stuff before for cheap prices. But sometimes people just want stuff to go away. You never really know why people sell something. But I’ve been selling stuff lately cause I’m tired of looking at it.

I do know one thing. I’ve seen big pressure washers sell for 5 dollars at auction. 16hp etc
