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.

Waste of time.

I bought and returned two of these. It worked great for the first 15mins. Then when I released pressure from my gun and went to reapply it, the surface cleaner would no longer spin. I started and stopped it several times and it would no longer turn, only spray. I have a pressure washer that is 3000 psi and 2.5 gpm with a honda engine and it is only a year old. I ended up having to clean my driveway the old fashioned way. Like I said it did work great when it turned but why risk it.

Works Great!

I purchased this Briggs & Stratton surface cleaner to use on my driveway as I had excessive oil stains under my car from the leaks. I needed something to get this oil removed from the driveway. This surface cleaner did a nice job removing the stains without me scrubbing hard. I used a good driveway cleaner and let it set for a few minutes to soak in then ran this unit with my pressure washer and it cleaned up the oil stains in a timely manner. Good product!

Excellent

This made cleaning my driveway and sidewalks a breeze. Had tried to do it with just the nozzles and it was taking hours to do 1 section. Bought this unit and was able to do the entire 10 sections of my driveway in 2 hours. It is a must have!

brush head

Had 2 of these in 2 years. After cleaning the nozzles still won't spin.
Go on line and find something that holds up. Would not recommend!!
Was used on 2 different p/washers with plenty of PSI.2400 to 2600.

Good Time Saver

Worked very well on moderately dirty concrete deck. Much quicker than using the fan tip, took out most of the stripes left before. Not quite so good on the really black algae'd sections. Didn't use any soap with it. Used it with the Craftsman Clean and Carry 2000 psi pressure washer. It's worth the price and will speed up the routine cleaning.

Surface cleaner

This item is a TOTAL necessity if you are cleaning a patio or driveway. It is unbelievable how it cleans with just a push of the handle. Well worth the money!!

Worked Great until it didn't

I would have given the surface cleaner 5 stars until it quit operating. The first four hours of use it worked fantastic and then it quit spinning when water pressure was applied. Not sure what happened but I think the bushings went bad. I returned it for another and so far it is still working. If it remains reliable I would certainly recommend this product.

Gotta have pressure washer tool!

This product is great! I have Kool Deck around my pool and every spring I have to clean it off. This is a very porous and heavily soiled area. The pressure washer with the normal tip takes practically the whole day, cleaning a 2 - 3 inch swath at a time. With the surface cleaner, I cleaned an area that would have taken well over 1/2 hour in less than 5 minutes. If you have concrete sidwalks, patios or decks to clean this is the tool you need. It works just like the video shows.

AMAZING PRODUCT! Such a time saver

It used to take me about 5 hours to do my all driveway. I bought this product after trying it at Sears Demodays and i washed my all driveway in just an hour and half!

Magic Cleaning Hovercraft

I bought this hoping it would clean half as well as my neighbor?s professional surface cleaner that I borrowed 6 years ago. Other than being smaller in diameter this cleaner worked as well as the professional model. I used it with a Generac 3000psi 2.7gpm pressure washer. My driveway is laid out in 12X12 sections, with this cleaner I was cleaning a section every 11 minutes. This was a very dirty drive. I was so impressed that I had to stop and take pictures, but I can?t add them here. The only drawback I found (if you can call it a drawback) is it leaves about an inch of area from any edge the cleaner hits. A neighbor came over while I was refilling the pressure washer with gas and ask about the surface cleaner. I offered to let him use it at his house, he declined the offer and went home and ordered one for himself. Hopefully this will last several seasons, if not I will buy another one of these when/if it breaks.

This is a must have in the pacific north west!

I just got this thinking if it helped a little I would be happy. It is about 10 times faster and does a great job. I have a huge drive way and a wrap a round deck. My family and I spent 5 days pressure washing the drive way and got only about half done. We finished in 5 hours with this. I love it!! This is a must have in the Pacific North West to get rid of moss.

Time Saver

Takes about 1/4 of the amount of time to do my driveway with 1/10 of the effort. Great product at a great price. I was a little weary of the plastic body, but it does hold up.

Surface Washer

This Craftsman Surface Washer lasted all of five (5) minutes before leaking out the top of the unit from the seals in the brass head to either side of the quick connector feed. This is the axis that allows the wand to move up and down. The loss in pressure due to the leak stops the wand from spinning. I was operating at 2400psi. I would not recommend this product as it was effectively 'out of the box' defective. Poor craftsmanship, Made in China.

Wow it's a great cleaner

Ordinarily, I don't write reviews for products I buy, but I feel obligated to do so for this one. I am absolutely amazed at how well this product worked. I'm simply a homeowner, not a professional, but in my opinion it's an excellent value for the money.
After spending hours going back and forth in tiny lines with a regular nozzle and missing various spots, I figured that there had to be a better way to clean my aggregate pool patio. I took the plunge on this product based on the reviews and figured it couldn't be any worse than what I was already doing. All I can say is WOW. It performed well above my highest expectations at getting the worked in grime out of the patio surface. I re-washed the whole patio in the time it used to take to do about 1/4 of it (and the results were, much much better with this tool).

I will say that it's great at getting the dirt loose, but it's not the best at pushing it away after it's loose. That small issue is the only thing that wasn't simply off the charts in performance, and I'd still probably rate that issue as performing &quot;fair to good&quot;. It's not terrible at this, but it's a bit complicated to direct the dirty water where you want it. What I found worked best was using it in conjunction with a &quot;fan&quot; nozzle. After getting everything loose, in an area, simply clip off the surface cleaner, and click on a fan spray. The debris is detached enough so you can move it easily with a fan nozzle (and if you don't have one, I bet a regular garden hose sprayer would even work for this) and blow it in which ever direction you like. It's simply a bit easier to direct with that than the surface cleaner. When done with that area, click the cleaner back on and repeat in the next area.

In fact it cleaned so well, I found I didn't even need to bother with the concrete washer mix I had. There was no difference between using it and not, which I think is more of a complement to this washer than a detriment to the soap, which has worked well in the past for me. Less chemicals on the patio is fine by me to get the same result.

This thing saves time and effort, I can't say enough good things about it. Seriously, I am really critical on most designs, and I really, really liked that this one did a better job than claimed and certainly far better than my cynicism would have allowed me to predict.

Best add on for washer

I bought this with my new pressure washer to clean my drive way and patio. I was so happy I did it works great and it was worth the $69. It cleaned all the green off the patio that is always in the shade. It cleaned all the spots on my drive way. It just glides and cleans in half the time that just a nozzle will do. Great product.

B & G Surface Cleaner

I was totally satisfied with this attachment and how well it cleaned my back concrete patio. It was more powerful than I anticipated. The large swath it makes with each pass made the job go so fast that I was done in one-fourth the time it would take with just the wand and nozzle. Much cleaner to use and a water saver to boot. I have recommended this to several friends already.

Very nice tool to help with the driveway

I used to use just a nozzle to run through my driveway and it took forever. With this surface cleaner its like vacuuming the house. It helps and speeds up the process! Recommend!
