This was a Christmas present for the hubby. He put it together pretty quickly and easily - did get one part backward at first. He tried out all the nozzles and cleaned a variety of items before he declared it perfect. The pressures and nozzles are appropriate for our home, pier and boating needs. The pressure was great enought to blow one nozzle across the yard when it hadn't been fully fastened on - be sure to tighten them down!
I bought this at the local Sears store, and my first experience with it was just horrible! We have our own well and have very good water pressure. Like the one review, it was just horrible to start, no way to adjust choke or fuel, all you have is the "****" at the end of the pull rope to "try" to get it started. That is a hopeless feeling when you have no options for setting things yourself, just ****, ****, **** on the pull rope as your only option! I did mess up my right shoulder trying to get it started, which required several trips to Chiropractor. When it ran...I was happy with it, except for the fuel tank being to small, I wish it would hold a gallon. Otherwise water pressure through the wand is perfect for an average gal to handle. I really liked the wash tips that came with it too, and being able to use soap. It was not to heavy to tow around and I could even lift it myself in and out of a SUV. I took it back to the Sears store to complain and return, as getting my husbands help did not help, as he could barely get it started himself! But, was lucky, a Sears tech guy just happened to be there too. Got some good tips, from him. So, talked to the manager, I took the pressure washer home to give it one more try. But based on what tips he gave me, I went shopping at a farm store before going home, and this is what worked to make us happy with this machine. We had to much water pressure with our well pump, after hooking up the hose, letting water through the wand to get the air out of the line, followed by one or two pulls on the rope the pressure got to high and the rope pulled to hard. At the farm store I bought a water hose turn off valve. The brass ones had to small of an opening, but I found a pot-metal valve with an opening that was almost as big as the inside diameter of our garden hose, and that turned out being a good choice. Then I mounted that on the water inlet side of this pressure washer. The tech told us to shut off the water at the facet start, then turn on the water, don't run the machine more then a minute without water on. This water hose valve when mounted on the machine, made that very easy and quick to do! I hooked on the hose with the valve open, turned on the water, ran the air out of the line through the sprayer wand. Then closed the hose valve we bought, pulled the wand trigger a couple seconds to release the water pressure, made sure the switch is turned "on" on the pressure washer. Our machine starts on first or second pull!!! Once started, I slowly open the water valve and get to work washing whatever. Now we are much happier with this unit, it starts easy enough now, and decided to keep it.
Easy assembly, Plenty of power, I used it to wash my house and deck. What an easy machine to run. I recommend this pressure washer for sure! I purchased the extra hose but may not need it. Very nice machine.
It did what it was supposed to do but needs a little explanation what that black fitting on bottom does. I know it keeps the engine from getting hot but need to tell that there will be water coming out of it.
Used it the next day after purchase and for the next three days. Power washed my house, pool deck, water bags for pool cover, and it was a whole lot easier to clean my pool cover. Nozzles were very easy to change also. Getting ready to power wash my vinyl fence. More uses than anticipated. I have been borrowing a friends for several years. No longer.
I purchased this item for household use around my home and property. I purposefully purchased the Briggs and Stratten engine based on my past 40 year use of their products. HUGE MISTAKE! First, on the very first use, the on off switch quit working. The only way to turn it off is to tip it upright until it runs out of gas. The 4th time I used it, it took 30 minutes to get it to run. The last time I tried for 45 minutes and it won't run at all. Start/die. Start/die. You see, they have some new design carbureator with no choke, no bubble to prime that is guaranteed to start! Yeah Right!!! It never works that way! The two other major issues i have is the location of the connection point and discharge. They are so close together that you cannot unscrew the hose connection without busting your knuckles. Also on the gun, the screw on connection is so poorly placed that again, you bust your thunb and rip off skin against the handle trying to unscrew the hose. I have operated a tree service for 40 years. Have tens of thousands of hours on every piece of gas powered equipment made. This unit takes the cake. Wosrt tool I ever bought! Used 4 times, will sell for $5.00!!! Unless I burn it first!
Well designed and does what pressure washers are supposed to do: squirt water out at a high pressure. A few bugs that, well, bug me. Why place the hose bib fitting and wand hose fitting at the rear and below the axle level of the wheels? The fact that Sears sells an adapter to put the connections at a more reasonable height tells me that the builders know it is a problem or at least an annoyance. Second, why can't the shut off switch spring back to the run position after turning off the motor? I can't tell you how many times I have pulled and pulled the starter cord only to realize that the run switch was still in the off position. Third, how about a pinch valve for the detergent siphon hose? I don't mind the hassle of undoing the cap or simply removing the siphon hose from the top of the detergent bottle but then you are left with the residual fluid leaking onto the ground. Much cleaner and quicker to clamp the soft hose shut with a ramp clamp or a dura-clamp. One clamp couldn't cost more than a half cent per unit but would make life easier for the users. A little advice. Use a really good plumbers silicone lubricant on the "o" rings. Use a lot of it. I have already messed up two "o" rings with only four removals of the power washer hose. Not expensive to replace but an annoyance when I followed the instructions and used motor oil. What was I thinking? Do read the instructions. Everything works well and beyond the three annoyances (switch, clamp and hook-up location) I highly recommend this power washer.
