Won't strip paint or lose a finger unless you get within six inches of the spray. And...even six inches will only sting (badly) . Twelve inches is a good safety margin. I've owned a pressure washer for 25 years.

Oh...and I've had some cut toes as well, but only when I accidently swing the gun and get momentarily too close to my foot.

That said, if you have it in pin-point mode it will cut like a laser. I always use the widest nozzle.

This last sentence, 100%. Use the appropriate nozzle and you won’t cut anything off.

Looking at purchasing a power/pressure washer and foam cannon for washing my Jeep and my little convertible. What do you guys use? Doesn't need to be super powerful- I'd prefer not to strip paint or accidentally lose a finger.
Based upon your comment allow me to suggest you take a pass on the John Deere 4000 psi, because YES it will almost cut your finger off (ask me how I know) and it will strip paint and cut concrete to boot. Pass on this!

I have the Sunjoy one from Amazon. Works awesome. As others have said, just keep your distance and use the right nozzle.

2,000 PSI is “ouch” range, so I figure 4,000 is “have the car running” range for a trip to the vet. I need a new one and figure 2,700-3,000 is more than enough to clean siding, concrete, etc.

I use the MTM PF 22.2 foam cannon attached to my Stanley 2050. I also purchased the optional wall mount. I have it mounted just inside my garage. Outfitted with all quick disconnect fittings. I think the Stanley 2050 also came with a detachable cart. It's very portable even without the cart.

I really enjoy washing my Jeep!

Same here, or the newest iteration (different colors and 1900 psi on mine). Use it with an MJJC foam canon with narrow orifice, spray gun with QD connectors (Sooprinse knockoff brand), and a kink free high pressure hose. I use only 40* 2.5gpm and 3.0gpm tips when rinsing. No issues.

Edited with links to the gear I have (aside from washer already linked):
Plus a high sudsing soap for the foam cannon.
