To answer you exactly I would need to know the model number of the pump. But in general a pressure washer powered by a 5hp engine would put out between 1800 to 2800 psi. The volume (Gallons per minute) would vary from 2.1 to 3 gpm. That being said, any of these variations would allow you to wash a wooden deck with the proper amount of caution. 1st Choose a nozzle with the widest spray pattern (usually the white one) 2nd Hold the nozzle about 6 inches from the deck. 3rd Always used a sweeping motion WITH the grain of the wood. If you find that it's not quite cleaning the way you want you can always move the nozzle closer to the deck or change the nozzle to the next narrower option(usually the green one) Hope this answers your questions.

Gasoline-powered pressure washers use an SAE 30W motor oil (10W-30) in the engine. Always consult the engine manual for specific instructions and be careful to put the correct oil in the correct place.

Hi, I have a qusstion. ?Can you run a pressure washer without it being hooked up to water? Thanks

the short answer is "no" and I have to ask, why would you want to, if you are thinking that you could use it to provide high pressure air to blow stuff off your deck, it won't work, the pump requires liquid in order to get enough pressure to push the water at high pressure

Were I to pick from one of those three, I would pick the Landa. The most reliable pumps are Hotsy and since Karcher bought Landa and Hotsy, those three brands now have Hotsy pumps, though it doesn't say it on the machines.

Pressure Washer quit running

I have owned four of those units. Every one of them did what you are experiencing or just wouldn't give me any pressure after only a few uses. The company was certainly no help. I gave up after four and bought a heavier gas model from Lowes. Hope this info helps.
