I've had this Troy built for over 4 years with zero problems. My wife bought it for me.
- Run it till its empty
- Remove the pressure/discharge hose and pull the cord and let all the water drain out of the pump.
- always wear safety glasses and boots [water can cut]

And boots? Are you kidding me? What if the operator of this washer accidently sprays a wasp or dirt dauber nest and has to escape quickly? Do you think he could do so wearing cumbersome, heavy boots? No, he would likely get stung by hundreds of angry bees/wasps. Ever thought of that smart guy?

I got a craftsman 2600psi unit about 4 years ago, use it monthly during the summer and maybe every couple in winter. Have had no problems yet.
I would get one that has a dispense system. I love being able to put a different nozzle on and presoak everything with degreaser.
Add ear plugs to the safety gear, when I'm pressure washing all the cement around the house for hours on end I can't hear at the end of the day if I don't wear ear protection.

I bought a reconditioned unit off ebay, c&h 1600psi electric. For the money I spent it works great, I mainly use it to spray off the ATVs, trucks undercarriage, stones, and sidewalketc. If your going to use it for anything more than that you'll probably want a stronger gas unit, but for basics electrics work good, IMO.
