I'd heard war stories about this parts washer being in peaces when it arrived so I was concerned about it. When it arrived it was in great shape. I opened the box read the instructions and put it to work. It is a great product.

I needed a small parts washer for small restoration and clean up jobs and have not seen any units in person I read favorable reviews on the Black Bull 3.5 gallon washer and figured if it doesn't stand up to it purpose I could return it.
HD had the lowest price available online (when adding shipping). The unit arrived in perfect condition, pre assembled (from reading some reviews I thought it would come in parts and require assembly) and works great. it is quiet, and has a good GPM throughput of liquid.
I was under the impression that there is a drainage hole at the bottom of the unit- but there isn't. you have to tip over the entire container to drain any liquids/solvents you might have in there.
the entire unit including shell/body,cover, and parts shelf are all metal which is great and a better (proper) alternative to plastic versions on the market which are not suitable for certain solvents.
I was hoping this would include some sort of small parts basket in addition to the strainer-tray but it didn't. So in case you are wondering. all thats included is the washer (body+cover+pump and switch) itself and the parts tray (strainer tray).
All in all, I am very pleased with the products fit and finish, and performance as well as with HD's price and shipping. does what I need it and does it well, requires little shelf/bench space and can be stored away when not in use.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by H0me0ner Not what was expected
The "required" use of water based solvents are not going to give you the result you expect if your used to petrolium based solvents. The pump delivers to much fluid which causes it to splash out and all over you and the surrounding area. The fusable link on the cover broke free the second time the cover was opened. Botom line is that you get a basin and pump inexspensively but the quality is low and requires some inginuity to make it more user friendly.

This product did not work, when i first plugged it in. What can i say, somebody dropped the ball. The testing dept. did not show up for work the day my parts washer came down the line.

A great concept for small parts cleaning but stopped working after 15 minutes. The small POND pump requires water based chemicals and is not well suited for this situation. Item returned to store.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Dkern7656 cheapest pump ever
ordered 1 of these and arrived with a busted pump. called buffalo who supplies this and could not get into their heads the part between nozzle and pump was the part that broke. wasted my time. just went ahead and returned it. this pump is very brittle. do not know why they would think this pump would last.
