i was reading a thread about these little electric pressure washers and people were saying how great they were,well i've seen them around for some time and thought they were just mickey mouse junk! so after seeing people raving i decided to go to lowes and pick one up. i got the 1400 psi model (its only the size of a 12 pack!) for $99 and figured ahh if it sucks i'll just return it. let me tell you that this thing is awesome for washing the bikes !!! not strong enough to damage anything,but plenty strong to gitterdone. the quality for $$ is amazing.
