I was afraid that I may have purchased a power washer with less muscle than I needed or wanted. Boy was I wrong! This machine has all the cleaning capability that most will ever need. I fired it up yesterday for the first time, and it ran great, and functioned as well as I hoped it would. I have read the manual, I have searched the internet, and I still ( like others ) have questions about the oil level in this engine. Oh ya! real wise guys have said. "just fill it to the full mark on the dipstick DIPSTICK" but it is not that simple! The machine comes with a bag of oil that you would think matches the volume needed for the engine. Well, after putting under half of the oil in the crankcase, the dipstick indicated it was at the high limit for operation. This could not be right. so internet here I come. There I found that there is not even a general agreement on whether to check the oil with the dipstick screwed all the way in or just pushed up to the hole. The volume that the engine requires does not coincide with the bag capacity or what brings the oil to the full mark. So In between it is. I push it in to the hole without screwing it in and just fill it to somewhere in the operating range. It ran fine at this level, and did not show any indication of being overfull. All the accessories that came with the machine were of high quality. I did by the turbo nozzle that was talked so highly of by others. I hope the washer works a long time, for if it does I will be one happy customer. Oh and it has a great, low center of gravity that keeps it stable while in use. Buy it worry free! It really is a good bang for the buck.
Used twice then noticed platform that engine sits on snapped, broke off frame handle as it simply sheet metal...should be welded here, exchanged...
After my 15 year old Craftsman pressure finally blew out the pump, which is no longer available via Sears Parts, I decided to shop for a new unit.
Careful research resulted in the purchase of this model pressure washer.
I have used it for 3 - 4 hours and found it to be smaller, lighter and quieter than my old washer, while producing the same or higher pressure. Time will tell how well it will hold up.
A quick pull and you have all the power you need to clean just about anything!
Had to cancel first order because wasn’t available. To make a long story short I finally received a second order almost 2 months after first ordering. Product is as described and powerful enough to take algae off cement. I did break the o ring between the shaft of the gun and the gun handle after first use. It was an easy fix and everything else seems to be working perfect!
