I powerwashed several areas of my house and garage, back porch, sidewalk to garage, garage slab and about 240 ft of sidewalk and curb and it took me 6 hours straight. The maching cost 65.00 for the day.
If it was for a paying customer I would charge 75.00 for equipment, fuel and trip charge, plus 20.00 an hour.
around here i could go to wal-mart and BUY a 2000 p.s.i. pressure washer for $200. (briggs & stratton) nobody's gonna pay anything close to that here. off-topic a bit, but speaking of wal-mart... i saw a unique generator in the back of a beat-up truck. a 4-cylinder nissan motor, complete with radiator,battery, ac converter and 4 three-prong outlets , all mounted to a steel frame. (it sounds like a blender,but gets good gas mileage...)
