Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by YardApe Very good home use pressure washer
I would have likely given this an excellent rate had an "O" ring in the wand not have been faulty. My first use was excellent, but the 2nd and 3rd I was getting soaked by leakage from the wand and assumed that I didn't tighten the connections adequately. After finally figuring out that it was the ring, HD gave me a box of them and the unit worked fine. The unit rolls well, is light enough to carry up and down stairs but well built. Starts with one pull - so far. I bought this over the Ryobi because that green color was going to drive me nuts. I recommend the Power Care Turbo Nozzle, with out it, you kill much more time and water.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by SparkMan86 Washer leaked like a sieve.
Box was very beat up and dented at the store, but it was the only one left, so I reluctantly purchased it.
Brought it home, set it up, and filled it with oil and gas. Once I started it, the pump leaked like a sieve because the manufacturer apparently forgot to install the gasket. The "funny" part was there was a QC sticker right next to the leak.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BigJohn Over 2 years of use, not 1 single issue.
I have had this unit for over 2 years now. I have used it to clean my driveway (24x96) my rear deck (132x16) and my patio (32x24). I used the EZ Clean 15" Surface Cleaner and I have had absolutely NO problems. Turned my driveway, which I am certain has NEVER been washed since it was poured, to an almost white color. My Rear deck/patio was treated cypress, which was almost black in color. This setup cleaned it to almost new.
Since then (summer of 2013) I have used it to clean the siding on my home, and a few others. I've cleaned 4 other driveways, and a small parking lot in front of a bar (20 car spaces). No count on how many times Ive used it to wash vehicles and tractors, well more than 10 times.
NOT ONE SINGLE ISSUE. I check the O-Rings every now and then, they seem to be holding up pretty well. Even if that did go bad, it's a generic piece that SHOULD be replaced when bad. I thought of replacing the hose with another, longer one, but havent yet.
Sorry to read bad reviews from other people. I have not had any of their situations arise. I have over 50 hours of use, and do not see issues to come up before I double, or triple that time.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Aus Vendor Item #529760 UT80546 3000 PSI Gas Pressure Washer(Homelite machine,nonbranded engine)
Purchased this product from Home Depot Internet. For a couple of summers I used this washer some around my home & it worked great. However, last summer before I used it I decided to change the spark plug before starting it. That was a mistake on my part because the threads stripped when I tried to replace with a new plug apparently because of a defective head on the engine. I didn't do anything with the machine until last week. I'm 83 so I got my grandson to take it to a very reputable repair shop to see if they could rebore the spark plug hole or replace the engine head. The technician looked at the machine & was very apologetic. He said I'm very sorry Mr. Cook but we can't repair your machine & when I asked him why he said that the Engine was not a branded item like a Honda or some other name brand but was what they considered an "Asian Variant"& you cant get parts for it. Its thrown together with all kinds of stuff. I was surprised that The Home Depot would sell this kind of equipment.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by tsg worst power tool ever
Came out of the box with a leaking gasket. Hard to start. Will not keep running. Numerous bad gaskets. Authorized service provider was unprofessional and slow.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by George Homelite 2700 psi with Honda Engine
I purchased pressure washer on may 29 2013..the pressure washer was used 5 times and performed fine. The last time it was used the lower unit on the pressure washer pump fell off the unit. There are 3 bolts that hold the pump together. The heads on the bolts cracked off with one bolt breaking off in the upper part of pump. The unit is about 5 months out of warranty..of course it is! Homelite doesnt sell the metric bolts so you have to buy the complete replacement pump. This should have never happened had they used hardened bolts. EXTREMELY disappointed in this pressure washer..will never buy another Homelite pressure washer again

Very well thought pressure washer. It has nice onboard storage for the assortment of nozzles, quick start instructions on the handle for those of us with short memories, nice storage for the wand and hose, a large fuel tank and a fuel shut-off valve that you can use when you store the washer.
Assembly took just a few minutes and it was ready to use. Put the wheels and handle on, add oil and you are ready.
It starts easily. Always on the second pull and has really good pressure - It cleaned dripped paint from my driveway that my old washer wouldn't clean. Be careful using the zero degree nozzle. So much pressure it cut a small groove in the driveway when I held it too close.
The quick change nozzles are great and can be changed quickly with the quick coupling on the end of the wand.
Overall a fantastic pressure washer that I highly recommend.
