Rated 1 out of 5Â by mannymos siphon tub eissues
bought this product 07-2013 use it about once a month. just the other day I decided to use the siphon tube to degrease an engine. It took a while to get it to siphon with the low pressure nozzle. the issue arose when I tried to go back to the high pressure nozzle which should of stopped the siphon tube from working.
Instead when I put on the high pressure tip it caused water to start blowing water out of the siphon tube at a decent pressure dramatically reducing the pressure out of the sprayer.
So basically right now my pressure washer is useless with a lack of pressure and blowing water out of the siphon tube.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Marcel This is a great machine for the price charged.
I bought this power washer to replace an old one, from a different brand, not so powerful and accurate. It's compact design makes it easy to transport and storage. It starts quickly, since the first time and works great. The only problem with this model, is the hose that comes with it: It's a fragile domestic hose, totally incompatible with a great professional machine; after only 20 hours of use, it cracked and leaked. It would be better pay $ 50.00 or $ 70.00 more and have a heavy duty hose included in the price.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Brian Buy a replacement hose
Bought this unit a couple weeks ago and have used it twice for a total time of about an hour. It is very powerful, and I love the Honda engine. I also love the generous gas tank. Mine does have the AAA pump that other reviewers mentioned, but I have not had a problem with it (so far). Overall, I'm very pleased with the unit, with one major exception:
THE EXHAUST WILL MELT THE HOSE THAT COMES WITH THE UNIT AND CAUSE IT TO BURST. Now, ideally the hose won't be touching the exhaust. However, the hose connections are located directly beneath the exhaust, and anyone who has done a fair amount of pressure washing knows how difficult it is to control the entire length of the hose, particularly when up on a ladder.
I would still recommend the product, but be very careful with the hose. Or, better yet, buy a replacement that can withstand the heat. And come on Dewalt, you're a respected name in tools... Build a product that doesn't damage itself in the normal course of operation.

After my Karcher 2500 psi broke for the third time, I started to to do a lot more research and know I had to spend more money to get a better machine. Before I bought the Karcher,I had one with a cat pump(bought used) and that pump threw some water but motor went bad. I wanted the Rigid 3300 with the cat pump but needed it now for a job and didn't have time to wait. I went to HD and checked out the DeWalt 3000psi. I knew the honda motor was good, but was kinda worried about the pump.I did more research and bought the DeWalt 3000 GX160.Brought it straight to the job. Fired it up and ran it 4 hours straight. Next day, I spent over 7 hours cleaning my house and driveway. Worked flawlessly.Started every time. Great power and well worth the $600 price.Of course it is not time tested with me,this machine has more than enough power for homeowners who want more of a commerical grade machine.One note. The hose that comes with it needs to be upgraded

Rated 1 out of 5Â by Brandon Beware of return policies not being honored
Would no recommend this unit went through 2 in 4 months with the same issue bad unloader ball valve and part is on a nationwide back order. With the first unit Home Depot was awesome and got me another brand new unit. So on my 2nd unit I was within my 90 days with once again same issue bad unloader valve and wanted to take advantage of dewalt's 90 day no hassle money back guarantee and they would not honor it because they say another company FNA makes it and puts Dewalt name on it. FNA says we don't honor Dewalts policy's so all I got was the run around and no one would help me. Well thanks to Home Depot they once again were nice enough to go outside there policy and let me pay the difference and upgrade to a different unit. Beware Dewalt will not honor there 90 day police on a licensed product all they will do is refer you to the other company. I will never buy another Dewalt product again.
