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...
Good pressure. Hose is a little cheap but it can be upgraded. Runs great, never had a problem starting it. No issues with any functions does not come with a chemical bottle.
cleans very well
I own a big pressure washer. 2500 psi. $3000 worth. It needed work. I had no time to bring it somewhere to get it fixed. Well this little pressure washer packs a punch. Ive used it a few times. Starts very easily. It has more power than you need for most jobs. The two biggest drawbacks for me personally are that I would like a longer hose. I wash houses in my line of work. Some are 3 stories. And the short hose is challenging and it runs out of gas frequenly. I do not expect to get more than a couple of years out of it as the pump is very small compared to my big unit. And from reading some of the other reviews. All in all it is a great tool for the low price. And a Honda engine is a plus.
