You get what you pay for. At $200, you won't get much. You might get somethin capable of rinsing your car or truck off (after you scrub it by hand) but it won't do much else. I own a machine that cost $1900.00, it has 3600 psi and an 11 hp honda motor, it's a moderate machine and capable of doing most tasks. Once you fall below 1500 psi (more or less) it's effectiveness is drasticly reduced. Electric machines are less expencive than gasoline ones, but they lack oomph. You could look for a used one, but there's little else more troublesome than a tired, worn out pressure washer.
