Saw a Rural King ad today advertising a refurbished pressure washer for $249.00. this link.

I'm not in the market for a pressure washer but it seems like a good deal and the Yamaha engine especially caught my eye, as I've never seen or heard of them before. Has an OHC valvetrain, so I don't think it's another Chonda clone, maybe a Honda GC knockoff perhaps?

Anyone ever seen or own a Yamaha consumer grade OPE engine?

Looks like a good price regardless. Axial pump so residential grade there. I would be leery of a re-manufactured pressure washer unless I know what was repaired and how many hours on the unit.

generally I steer away from vertical pumps they seem to be the worst type.
(where hose connects under the power washer)

I'm sure it's a Chinese import engine made for Yamaha. Not that that's a bad thing, it's just not like a real Yami.
