Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JAS34613 Better than expected
The best and most powerful electric pressure washer I've seen. Much better than my old Karcher (poor quality for a German product).
Used it to clean my siding which had a lot of green and black mold. Did a great job - house looks freshly painted. I tried using the unit to apply the detergent, but like all other units I've used it tends to waist the detergent. So I used a hand garden sprayer for most parts and big scrub brush on a telescoping pole and a bucket for heavily soiled areas.
The unit didn't like my 150 foot extension cord which is understandable (line loss at 13 amps). But it performed well with a 50 footer. The unit's 35 foot cord was all I needed for most of the job.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by sherig gets the job done
This washer is a little workhorse. Have used it 3 times now for 3 - 4 hours each time. Once you get used to it's little quirks it really does the job. Manual could have better info. Just remember: reset the gfi on the power cord to restart after a 15 minute rest; make sure the hose connection clicks in tight; pull out on the nozzle end for low pressure and soap. this is a little hard to pull out the first time or two, but gets easier. It's a little heavier than expected but the wheels help.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 123ross425 Very user friendly
Overall I'am very pleased with this unit. It cleans well and it's great not having to listen to a gas motor running. There was one part to this unit that I was not impressed with however and that was the plastic quick disconnect for the water inlet. This disconnect broke the first time I used the unit.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by frustrated bad
The faulty (tried a 2nd one)plastic hose connector made this almost impossible to use. Apparently company has been told of the ongoing problem but won't switch to a metal connector.
Very frustrating & time consuming - finally returned the pressure washer.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Bobpgh Great while it worked
This unit is excellent for getting your deck ready for staining or sealing. Very powerful. Really did a good deep cleaning job. My only problem was that the unit worked perfectly for about an hour, then shut down after only doing about 400sq. ft of a 1200sq. ft. deck. After following the manual for re-start it just kept starting and stopping. After calling Earthwise and explaining the problem and doing some additional trouble shooting, I was told it was a faulty motor. The support tech told me I could go back to the store and exchange it. Well, I had ordered it online and when I went back on line they where out of stock, so Earthwise said they would send me a new one but it would take awhile because they didn't have any themselves. After following up I was told they would ship around July 1st. So we'll see how this works out.
The unit is very good for the price and I was very pleased with how powerful it was for an electric power sprayer. Just disappointed it went south after only an hour of use. I just got a bad unit.

It has enough power for a car wash or just about any other household task. The water jet is adjustable so that the pressure can be controlled and the flow rate is pretty good. You probably don't need a much more powerful washer and the electric motor avoids all of the problems of a gasoline engine.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GRMS Good quality and easy to use
I tried 4 other pressure washers before buying this one and returned all of them the next day due to low quality i.e. leaks and low pressure. I've been using this pressure washer for 2 months and have no complaints.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by BHS3910 Quick connector is quick to break
I have only used my unit twice. The first time, the motor started cutting out after an hour and had to rest a bit before you could use it again. I was okay with that - at least it was cleaning my deck fairly well. (Did not do a very good job on the wheels of my car though.)
The second time, things were going pretty well cleaning the sidewalk in front of my house until the quick connector for the hose snapped off and took part of the inlet fitting with it. Now we'll see how well they stand behind their warranty. I just hope I don't have to send this thing back to the factory!
