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...
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!
I don’t have many thoughts on this item per say. Sears customer service is the worst though. I ordered this item on 11-25 as a Christmas gift for my son. It’s now 1-16 and still do not have this product in my possession
I have used this pressure washer one time and I was very impressed. I put it away as directed for storage, and when I needed to use it a few months later, it took hours upon hours to get it to start. I had to change the gas, change the spark plug, and prime it.
Once started again it worked great.
When I needed it the next time, I could not get the pressure washer to start. I tried everything from spark plug, priming it, change gas and all, and ended up borrowing a friends to pressure wash.
Last week I tried again to get this going. Only to have the same exact problems. I spent hours trying to get it to start. It would not.
Tonight I said one more time. Let me try. New filter, spark plug, changed gas, made sure gas was running through lines, and nothing. Tried priming once again. NOTHING.
Took the carborator apart to make sure fuel was getting through. After confirmed gas was getting through, once again put back together tried to start, NOTHING.
Tried priming the unit. It would start and run for few seconds then shut off. Tried everything possible. 4 hours later, sweating extensively from working on the pressure washer, I decided enough was enough and put it away. Time to purchase a new one. I would advise you to STAY AWAY from this unit. It is the biggest piece of junk every.
