Rated 5 out of 5Â by Eggyvine Dewalt and Honda seem to be a winning combination!
I own a small home improvement company in North Carolina. I used to rent 3000 psi or more pressure
washers when needed for work. This machine gets the job done and exceeded my expectations.I actually
enjoy using it, especially on decks. I love Dewalt tools and this pressure washer seems to follow suit with
Dewalt's known quality, not to mention a strong Honda engine!

Rated 3 out of 5Â by DETEX Mixed feelings with this pressure washer
This is the third pressure washer I have owned. The first two were low end models, with this purchase I decided to step up to the commercial grade.
Had this been the low end, I would have rated it 5 stars, but being a commercial grade I hold it to a higher standard (just as the price was higher).
On the plus side, there is plenty of power and the pump is definitely a higher quality pump. I also know a lot of people rave about Honda engines, I have had good luck with all different brands of engines. The quick change nozzles are conveniently located, and while mine did not vibrate out I could see how they could as the rubber holding them in is not all that tight.
What downgraded this pressure washer two stars was three specific items:
1. The pull start cord is hard to use due to the front guard. Either you pull out outside the guard as I do, or you can snake it between the guard and the engine, I have big hands and it would be a pull, poke through, hand off and then pull. An extra two inches would have solved the problem.
2. The length of the pull handle and hose storage. I am 6' tall and have to slouch down to comfortably pull the washer. The hose falls of the storage easily. Like the starter, a couple more inches higher and a deeper hose storage would have made all the difference in the world.
3. The wand. I cannot say nothing nice about it. The hose connects at the bottom of the trigger handle, at an angle. It would be great if all you used the wand for is washing below your waist level, however I wash above my head to my feet, and how the hose connects puts extra pressure on your arms and back to hold it with the angle of the hose on the wand. This wand has a "nifty" rotating handle to hold the wand. It is a piece of junk. It rotates around and I have yet to find a comfortable position to use it. I looked to see if I could remove it, but unless I want to cut it off I can't. I simply hold the wand further down. If I was using the wand as a flame thrower straight out it would be perfect, but then you are dealing with the additional pressure from the hose connection.
This washer is definitely better than the bargain basement models I have had in the past, and I really expected more comfort in using for a commercial grade than the occasional use washers I have had in the past.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by james Don't buy the cheaper ones! Borrow from your kids if need be!
After using for 20 hours or so, this is the one to buy. Even though it says "commercial" if you have any driveway, house eaves and gutters, docks, or porches,,,the time you save is well worth the cost...3400 PSI, oil pump on side (don't buy one with with pump under engine) do not buy cheaper ones at Costco.
After 2 cheaper ones, this unit should last a long time. It cost $92 a day to rent this unit...6 days you have it paid for. The bad....the tires leave black marks on painted decks, etc. because the unit walks around on a smooth surface....they need to upgrade tire rubber. I wrapped hose around unit to keep it from walking around.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by JCLATX Compact and powerful!
As a step up of from consumer-grade washers, this product is relatively inexpensive and delivers significant additional cleaning power and run time. (I've owned two consumer grade washers prior to this one, and the difference is easy to see.) Easy to set up out of the box. Five spray tips from pin-point, to three fan-outs, and soap spray give reasonable variety in application. The large gas tank can power the washer for many hours before needing a refill. The connections for supply and spray hose are up top and easy to get to, as compared to other models I've used where they are underneath.
Downsides: the rubber pads supporting the back legs disintegrate when the washer is running and placed on a concrete or other abrasive surface (i.e., my pool deck). It leaves a black puddle of gunk that you have to come back and wash away, and not all of it DOES was away, even with the pressure washer itself. The unit also tends to "creep along" as it runs, because of vibration. My solution was to put a folded towel beneath the rubber feet. This usually stopped the creeping and kept the black goo from getting onto the deck (at the expense of ruining the towel).
