I am looking for an economical pressure washer that can be used to at least scrub my deck. If anyone has a recommendation or alternate to a traditional pressure washer, please advise.

Thanks.

What do you consider economical and what is your price range?

I am just basically looking for the cheapest pressure washer(s) that will work for the purpose of at least cleaning my deck. With that said I dont have a price range. By "economical", I mean it it is good bang for your buck. Hope that makes sense.

For a deck I would go with an electric.

Default ok

I know it's a cheaper model, but I borrowed my buddys a few weeks ago and washed my entire house, porches concrete and what have you. It actually worked really well. And I like the fact that it is electric because there was no gas to buy, or run out of.
I recommend buying it.

inspectorD, your link doesn't seem to work.

Edit: Well actually it does. Clicking on it doesn't pull up the right page for some reason though. I had to copy and paste it. Thanks for the recommendation.

Well that is interesting. I think it may have to do with a site locator. meaning when I hit the link, my local store pops up.
Oh well, at least you found the washer, and it did a great job, I was actually suprised.
