Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Donna Great little pressure washer
Powerful little pressure washer, did an wonderful job on the vinyl siding! I would have rated higher except it was a little hard to get together initially and the soap bottle continued to leak a bit no matter what I did to stop it. I really didn't need the vinyl cleaner, as the pressure washer did quite a nice job without it. I would definitely recommend.. not too heavy either.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ih8snow So far it has been good!
You'll need to replace the supplied plastic adapters that go from the water hose to your machine with some metal ones. The metal adapters are cheap and found about anywhere, so no problem. This machine has been great for washing vehicles, it will knock out dirt but you will still need to manually scrub your vehicle. Have not tried it on decking, siding or concrete but I can see it doing the job slowly. For those tasks you are better off renting a gas powered washer anyways.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by flyright Decent Pressure Washer
Unit is small and lightweight. Quick connect hose fitting leaks bad and is useless. Also, there is no good place to wrap the sprayer hose or electric cord and therefore they just have to lay around. Very poor design there. Unit seems to work decent after washing a boat and a townhome (runs out of power anything more than a few feet away from the tip of the sprayer, but that is expected on a unit like this).

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by SaveEnergy Only good for washing driveways
Its good for washing driveways and any surface within 2-3 ft of the spray nozzle. If you are thinking about washing siding you can only do that upto 6 or 7 ft high depending on how tall you are. For anything higher you have to get a ladder as this pressure washer's stream gets as good as nothing the moment the surface you want to clean gets more than 3 ft away. Go for a gasoline engine pressure washer if you don't want to waste your time.
It has a good build quality. I had a problem with the water leaking from the joint where the garden hose is fitted. I am not sure if it was my unit only or others have this problem too.
I ended up returning it and getting a gasoline powered one.

It has more power than I expected. Yes, it leaks a bit at the connector, but since I'm using it outdoors, it is not a big issue.
I need to find an extension to do the high part of the siding, not sure what will fit with this washer. Any suggestions?

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by NewHomeowner Good, except for one key component
I found the unit pretty easy to setup and operate. 1600 PSI is enough for my purposes (driveway cleaning, occasional car wash) but I could see where more PSI would be desirable for a larger or harder to clean area.
The AR240 comes with a quick connect adapter that is meant to go on the end of your garden hose so its a "snap" to connect it to the power washer. Yeah, that adapter leaks. So pick up an extra washer from your local Home Depot in anticipation of this annoyance.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by blue9 Good for household use
I have only used it once so I cannot vouch for the longevity. I used it on my small deck and it was definitely powerful enough for small household jobs. It is easy to setup and run, small/light to move around, and very inexpensive.
Regarding the leaking issues others have mentioned, I did take the advice and used plummer's tape on all threaded connectors and it didn't leak a single drop. You just need to make sure you wrap the tape around 2-3 times.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DJAY Wonderful, strong and lightweight washer
So far, I can't find any fault with the pressure washer. It did such a good job, and was so easy to operate, that I bought another one for my daughter. Both are operating beautifully. The only problem with my daughter's washer was that the PLASTIC CONNECTOR cracked, but this is no big deal because it is easily replaced by an inexpensive brass one at the hardware store. So, you might say that I am more than satisfied. I think that since it is made in Italy, it is more durable than some of those made in Asia.
