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.

I received my pressure washer in just a few days after ordering. Setup was easy and got to pressure washing right away. It did appear that the washer was having trouble similar to what I saw in some other reviews. It wouldn't keep pressure and would idle back rather than stay running at pressure. It turns out that I didn't have the input water on all the way and it was not able to keep the pressure up. This was operator error and when fixed everything was great. It ran for an hour straight with no problems. So make sure you have a good water supply before deciding that there is a problem with a new pressure washer.
