How often do you use it? If it's only once or twice a week I'd get a used one on Craigslist or something. I have used some newer plastic ones that were too light. I have an ancient one that weighs over 90lbs that works amazing.

Hawk or Mercury, I got this package for $160 a few weeks ago, which is very very rare! Right place at the right time!

I know what not to get... A Mytee 175. The switch went out early on but luckily it has been good for going on ten years now. The tank flow control gives out and leak my cleaner when I least would like it to. The bearing that holds the handle onto the base jimmys lose just from being in the van.
