Which surface cleaner

Hey guys I’ve only used a general pump 20 inch but I’ve seen these in a pawn shop today. Both are 20 inch. I can get either one for $200. Simpson and wisper wash classic. Is this a good deal?


I.b i believe you once said to get a whisper washer.

Not the classic. It has the trigger built into it and you have to use a ball valve. Ultra/eagle wash is about the only decent one in the market now.

I don’t think I’ve seen a whisper wash. You said it need a ball valve, as in it’ll keep running constantly unless you install a ball valve at the end?

Sure. Like perpetual motion.

I bought this one. I know other people here don’t approve. But it is new and has been working well for me. I also don’t do this for a day job like a lot of these guys though. But for my pressure washing budget and where I am right now, I think this was the right purchase for me.

I did just have to order a ball valve setup though because switching back and forth from wand to surface cleaner with this unit is a hassle. If you take IBS’s advice, you won’t have to ball valve at the end of your hose at all.

I’m sure the guy who purchased that WW Classic would love to have it back, along with the name of the guy who pawned it.

It is a “steal” at $200. (“Steal” being the operative word)

My opinion, the WW is too good a deal to pass up.


Are those 16" or 20"

The Pawnshop probably paid $70 or less. I had a friend in the industry and it’s kind of crazy. A lot of their customers keep stuffed pawned for years. :fearful:

I gave it a test run before I was to buy it and it didn’t work properly.
