Which to buy with my budget?

Hu folks,
I couldn’t figure out which thread to post this in (mods please move if need be).
Ive been pressure washing on the side for 14 years. My north star Belt Drive Honda 390 General pump T2011 looks like 4 hells (Rust bucket) but is a beast and runs well.

I was thinking of adding a new portable unit belt or direct drive.
i do around 5-10 houses a year so it’s just here and there.

my question is with so many brands out there and $1200-$1500 which to buy

So basically I was looking at an entry level portable unit that won’t be used daily, but will last.
thanks

If that unit has worked fine, just get one similar. You could upgrade to a 5.6 gpm or an 8 gpm depending on what you want to spend. 8 may not be as portable though. If rust is a concern, go with stainless or aluminum with a Honda Engine in my opinion. A belt drive is good for longevity as well. Keep it clean of chemicals and store in a dry place.
