Customer Reviews

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 44 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Nice machine I bought this pressure washer based on the engine and the positive reviews such as started on first pull every time. I did not have that experience. It did start on the third pull which is certainly acceptable however, even after using this for several hours it will not start unless the choke is on. I am not a mechanic but when the engine is hot I don't understand why it won't start on the first pull without using the choke. Once the choke is on and pressure is released on the wand it starts on first pull. It is one more step in the process to start it but once it is started the machine cleans great and the idle down feature works well too. March 13, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by amen fl i bought this pressure washer about a month ago-- i made sure it was full of oil then filled it with gas , connected the water lines, then held the trigger down to remove all the air from the lines and pump-- the yamaha engine cranked on the first pull, this engine is very easy to start and really puts out the power--i read all the reviews before i bought this pressure washer and was satisfied it would do a good job for me also, but was concerned about the cranking problem which proved to be no problem at all for me, if you are looking for a very good machine that should last a long time then this is the machine for you -- i highly recommend this one August 19, 2011
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by I don't think you could do better than this pressure washer I am in the carpet cleaning business and a CAT pump is what is used on 20,000. carpet cleaning machines they have the best reputation in the industry. You can't go wrong with that pump and a Yamaha engine. The machine is amazing and works great. I have used it 4-5 times in the last month, it starts right up and the sound of that motor is quiet yet has a low rumble like a harley. It actually turns heads when the neighbors walk by. The feature of the motor only throttling up when you press the trigger also sets it apart from the rest and saves wear and tear on all the moving parts of the machine. It is heavy and would take 2 people to put it in a vehicle. March 25, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rock Solid Perfect The CAT 3800 PSI 3.5GPM model is without a doubt the most well engineered pressure washer on the market. I have used pressure washer that had more PSI and GPM but CAT found the perfect number combination. More than enough power and water flow to clean EVERYTHING. Easy assembly, solid construction, and when I say solid, I mean everything; real rubber wheels, hose, spray tips, wand. 1st pull starts everytime. Does not 'walk' as some units do. CAT pump with Yamaha engine best combo you can get. The only caveat emptor is that this is a pro unit, not for everyone as this thing kicks, and you do need a little muscle to use it. April 30, 2011
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by good features, NOt a true CAT PUMP. I picked this unit up instore, two weeks ago, It was a breeze to get it up and running. I have been looking at new pressure washers for the past year, I loved the features, and most of all that it had the cat pump. I was not happy to find out that the (CAT) PUMP, is made by homelite. i have had no luck with homelite in the past, AS of now my review is based on the cat pump, that homelite purchased from them. We will see how this unit holds up in the future. The seals for life, is great, however i have never had a problem with the seals going on the pump. I recommend spending the extra money and getting a true CAT pump April 1, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Buy it- Cant see how you would go wrong!!! I have had this pressure washer for a year and use it professionally on a weekly basis...I bought it because it was a Cat Pump and the fact that Cat licensed a company to assemble this product- so I expected that the pressure washer would stand up as well as their pumps do. I was not disappointed. The warranty is great and the only issue I have had is the pull cord fly wheel locking up, once, but it released itself when I pulled it lightly to release the spring....I too had a minor leak from the pump assembly but it was easily corrected by tightening the stem that feeds into the pump......Overall, the machine is well built and built to easily service. Thus far, I have had no issues and dont expect to. June 28, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This is a good quality washer! I have used this washer several times now during the past half year. It is great to use, always starts in 1 or 2 pulls (pull the trigger handle wile starting) and has lots of blasting power. The automatic idle down feature works great, saves gas and is nice if you need to talk for a moment or take a drink. The pressure can be regulated so I can use it for the car and other things without blasting everything off. From all the pressure washers I have used in the last 30 years this is the best. A negative would be that I had to add a little plastic valve (with easy quick connects) in the soap suction hose so it does not suck air if I do not use it. Also it would be nice if it had a pressure meter. But those are minor details. May 23, 2012
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Nice machine I purchased this pressure washer based on the positive reviews I read such as ease of starting on the first pull right out of the box. I did not have that experience. It did start on the third pull which is certainly acceptable but even after running for several hours it does not re-start unless the choke is on which is troubling to me for a hot engine. it does start on the first pull after releasing pressure on the wand but only if the choke is on. Once it is started it is a great cleaning machine and the idle down feature is great too. March 13, 2012
