I think that's a fair deal besides this is not a machine that's used everyday unless he uses it for business then I would suggest you negotiate for a much lower price.
50' hose is perfect for most jobs, that's what I have too.

Oh, he could have very well spent that $450, those things are not cheap.

Thanks for the replies. I picked it up today for $200. The guy wouldn't budge on the price. As for use, he's a painter and "says he has 2 other machines" but is winding down the painting. So, I really can't tell how much it's been used but it had great pressure and didn't appear to have been abused. If it matters, the Honda OHC engine started on the first try. I actually saw the same machine at Home Depot for $329 (obviously less the 50' hose). So I consider his price reasonable.

Honda engines are great. I know it's not the most convincing testimonial based on what I currently drive, but my lawnmower which predates my car has a Honda OHC engine and it starts no matter what on the first pull of a cord.

just curious, what indoor application did you have in mind for the gas pressure washer?

you didn't invite Rosie in your house by any chance, did you?
