What is the advantage to the adjustable pressure feature? Can't the same thing be obtained by using a low-pressure nozzle?

A low-pressure soap nozzle uses very low pressure, under 100 psi. Adjusting the pressure on the washer will allow up to 3000 when cleaning harder surfaces(concrete, brick, etc) and lower if working on softer surfaces(wood, siding, vehicles, etc). You can always stand further away if working with delicate surfaces as well.

An adjustable pressure washer allows you to adjust the pressure from next to nothing, all the way up to its rated maximum, 2,500PSI, 3,000PSI, 4,000PSI and so on.

So while it is true that you could simply attach a wide area nozzle to reduce the pressure, if your washer outputs say 4,000PSI, that is still enough pressure to strip paint with a wide nozzle!

I wouldn't even think of pressure washing house siding and or windows unless I could dial the pressure down to 1500PSI!

Honda approves up to 10% alcohol with the GX160 engine. But, would still recommend non ethanol fuel or a fuel stabilizer formulated with an ethanol protectant.

Question

Is there a pressure gauge to know what pressure you are at?

I see the pressure is adjustable but I also see a review that the customer had to purchase a gauge to see what pressure the pressure was set at. So is there a gauge on the pressure washer or would I need to purchase one seperate and if so where would I get one?

There is no duty cycle time on the pressure washer. It can run as long as you keep oil and gas in the unit.
