    Belt drive is good as far as I know. Its simple and doesn't have some fussy engineered connection only one company makes. There are about 2 companies make good pumps, Cat and someone else, don't recall as this has been several years. They actually rate them in cleaning units, a real salesman could tell you, volume x psi and temp. Everyone focuses on psi but its only half, the amount of water is like using a bigger hammer.

    Default hotsy

    I would never buy a belt drive, more maintance, belts get wet slips, i have a hotsy, gas powered 6 hp, love it. I would be sure it can be run off a tank, makes it very portable.

    Default Who has the best Hot water pressure washers and type.

    Belt drive or gear reduced direct drive washers will suck water from a tank. If it's a high speed direct drive it needs pressured water to feed it.

    I borrowed a little cold unit the neighbors have to do a little job the other day. It took a couple minutes to get used to the small cleaning power.

    Any one ever deal with Northern tool presure washers with a cat pump.

    They have them branded as North Star

    I know someone who0 has one, never had the chance to try it out though. (I was curious too) They are cheaper but havnt looked at the specs lately, you want at least 4 gpm as a bare minimum . As for belt drive, never seen one in a steamer truck that wasn't.

    Giant is the other brand of triplex pump.
