Outstanding
My drive is about 20 years old and is very rough so it collects dirt in short order. A pressure washer will clean it but it is an inch at a time. This unit cleans a wide area and all you have to do is let is hover over the tough areas and it even cleans those. One of the best purchases I have made. Highly recommended.

I only gave it 3 out 5 because I had to fix it! But it works great now!
The cleaner started out working great, but then stopped spinning up as many have stated in thier reviews. I took the underside apart and found out what is wrong with the device and the fix is easy! Water leaking out the center pivot is normal, for as fast as this thing spins, you just can't seal that spot that great! What the problem is that when the device was assembled at the factory, the assemblers got sloppy with the treadlock compound on the pipes! Instead of the threadlock being only on the pipe threads, they glopped on too much inside the joint, so excess material is inside the pipes. As you use the unit, that excess material comes off, and gums up the nozzels. You can use a 7/16 wrench to remove the nozzels, and a pick yo scrap out what has gotten stuck in the nozzels. Be careful not to force the pick into the nozzel as you can then damage the nozzel and not get the pattern need to clean the surfaces. It took about three times taking the nozzels off and cleaning before it finally got all of the excess material out of it, and it has been working great since.

Great for flat surfaces

This attachment is great for flat surfaces so sidewalks and driveways. Had a few issues with paver deck though.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Works Fine on Concrete

It works fine on my sidewalk and shined it up like fresh poured concrete. The only issue I have is that it's a little awkward using the Spray Gun. Next, the driveway and it's a big job!

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Difficult keeping the surface cleaner from rising.

The pressure from the water prevents good control to keep the surface cleaner down. "It bounces up and down."

Briggs and Stratton Surface Cleaner

I was skeptical about this product but thought I'd try it. I was surprised at how great it worked. It made cleaning the floor of our deck much easier and faster. Be careful not to let it get stuck in a groove, if it does move it fast. This happened to me and I didn't get it moved fast enough and it wore into the wood in that spot a permanent circular groove. I took off one star for somehow it seemed the nozzle became clogged with something and for a while it wouldn't spin and it was vibrating like crazy. I tried cleaning it out and eventually it started to work again on it's own and it didn't happen again. Not sure if it was clogged or not as trying to clean it out didn't really fix it but eventually it started to work again as it should so I didn't return it and as I mentioned it never happened again. Over all it did a great job and I'd recommend it if pressure washing your deck floor or driveway, or any type of outdoor flooring like patios.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

3... 2... 1... self destruct

Within 5 minutes of use the surface cleaner would no longer spin. I cleaned about 10 feet of walk way in half the normal time, but then I stopped to admire the cleaned concrete. Once i stopped, the surface cleaner wouldn't start spinning again. It was leaking water out from the center from where it spins.

Worth every penny!

I had looked at this for awhile, but wasn't sure it would be worth the money. It IS! Definite time saver and does an incredible job on sidewalks and paver patio. No striping/steaking and is as easy as pushing a vacuum cleaner.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Briggs & Stratton 6178 Pressure Washer Surface Cleaner Attachment

My new favorite toy. 3 to 4 times faster than using the wand to clean, no matter what tip you use. Cleans a 1 foot radius at a time. An absolute must have item for your pressure washer, if your planing to clean driveways & patio areas regularly.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
