I purchased this unit to replace a home owners unit that was 2500 psi and 2.5gpm and WOW what a difference. The first thing I noticed is the wand seems so long compared to the homeowners units. The long wand will contribute to no more sore back from being hunched over to use the unit. The unit started on the first pull and ran like a champ. The ONLY thing that I do NOT like is the way the engine exhaust is routed, it tends to make the frame very warm on the corner of the unit and may distort the plastic garnish plate over time. I am pleased with the money that was spent and don't think that there will be any regrets, only time will tell.

My pressure washer hydro locks at start up. I have to jack with it using tiny strokes or turn off the water or release the pressure using the knob on the pump. Starting problems is the only reason I don't recommend this washer. Maybe a pressure relief valve would take care of the problem.

This unit is the toughest pressure washer I have ever used.
I don't have to say much more as it starts on the first pull and is very dependable.

I purchased this for a variety of home projects. My goal was to just make one purchase that wouldl last me a very long time. That is why I choose the commercial unit & from all initial indications this unit will meet my goal.
I found the instructions to be adequate on the whole. I did have a problem during the set up when I followed the instructions & added the entire quart of provided engine oil. This put the oil level way over full & I had to drain out the excess oil, makeing a big mess in the process. It would have been very helpful if the instructions stated that it would only take "X" amount of oil to fill the unit.
Also the instructions go into detail about what spray tip to use for what purpose. It lists each color tip & what it is supposed to do but fails to mention the green tip or give any info on the green tip. It's not rocket science, try a tip & see what it does. Just would have been nice to know what the green tip was designed for.
I have only used the machine for about 30 mins so far, checking out each tip & learning the machine. I am quite impressed overall with the quality & performance. Even the plastic parts are heavy duty & well made.
The instructions recomend using a product called "pump saver" to prolong the life of the pump. I plan on doing so but wish a sample had been provided with the machine. They give you a quart of engine oil, why not a bottle of pump saver?
I am looking forward to many hours of using this machine & feel it will serve me well. Time will tell.
