I am looking at purchasing the best 18" or larger surface cleaner to use with my 3200 psi / 2.5 gpm pressure washer. I am looking at this one and the Simpson 18" surface cleaner. Anyone have any input on these or another not mentioned that may be a better fit and do a better job at this size?
Asked by: Paul
I’ll disagree with these responses. I have a Simpson 3200 2.5gpm pressure washer and while this is adequate, it is not as good with this washer as a smaller 15” unit. I used both on my driveway. Started with the 15” and hated that it didn’t have wheels. I have about a 150’ concrete drive and about 1/2 way I got tired of fighting the smaller unit. Bought this rigid 18” solely due to wheels and reviews saying it would work with my washer. While it would clean, I had to over each section of concrete twice with this rigid unit because it would leave streaks. If I’d stuck with the smaller 15” I would have been done in half the time. While frustrating without wheels, I just should have sucked it up and gotten done. Instead, I had to go so slow as compared to the appropriate 15” and then go over each section again in the opposite direction that it just isn’t worth the cost. Now, if you have a larger washer I’d say this might be worth it, but this year, I’m selling this to try an recoup my money and going back to the 15” unit. Much better fit. I reviewed this product and called out rigid in the Q&As because they are not being honest in the capabilities of this unit with “lower powered” washers. Yet they still continue to mislead people ... try both the 15” and this 18” and you will see. Just make sure to keep your receipt.

Professional 18 in. 4200 PSI Quick Connect Surface Cleaner for Gas Pressure Washers is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 419.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from The RIDGID Professional 18 in. 4200 PSI Quick Connect Surface Cleaner for Gas Pressure Washers is... The RIDGID Professional 18 in. 4200 PSI Quick Connect Surface Cleaner for Gas Pressure Washers is an outstanding piece of equipment for surface cleaning with a as pressure washer. When I first used it, I had it attached to a 3100 psi, 2.4 gallon per minute gas pressure washer. You had to move it very slowly to get decent cleaning of concrete, although, you could see streaks on the driveway where despite overlapping passes with the cleaner, it did not remove dirt and grime in a uniform manner so there were stripes down the driveway where the outer left and right edges did not get cleaned as well as down the middle. This was remedied by overlapping by 50% with each pass rather than just 2-3 inches of overlap. Subsequent to the above, I purchased a much more powerful pressure washer as the one mentioned above did not have adequate pressure or volume to effectively handle some of my more challenging cleaning projects. I purchased a 4400 psi, 4.0 gallon per minute pressure washer which is a cleaning monster! (in a good way!). Using the RIDGID surface cleaner with the more powerful pressure washer not only cleaned my driveway and patio (both concrete) more thoroughly and deeper, but, it also cut the cleaning time to about 1/3rd the time it took with the less powerful pressure washer. And, a word of advice... don't try to clean the very edges of a slab with the surface cleaner... use the pressure wand for this. I tried edge cleaning a slab with the surface cleaner and thought I could hold it level once two of the wheels were overhanging the surface and not touching the ground and the rapidly rotating wand with a pressure nozzle on each end struck the concrete... after that it was unbalanced and vibrated so bad that I had to return it and get a replacement which was covered under the 90-day return policy at Home Depot.

I've used the cheap ones before, they don't last. When mine arrived I was surprised at how heavily construed the body was. The brushes are very heavy duty. The pivot is centered on the top of the bearing housing this makes control very easy. It also has a convenient grease port. The only weak point on the unit might be the open ball bearing castors. Only time will tell. It looks as if you rinse the casters after each use this won't be a problem. The casters make this cleaner gild across the pavement. These casters are necessary do to the over all heavy construction of the unit.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from good product this is a very nice unit and it makes life so much easier that being said I had to take it apart after trying to use it and having the water nozzles clogged with metal shavings causing it not to have any water come out. I used a needle to push the metal shavings out and than blew the lines out with a air gun. I reinstalled the pressure tips after it was all clear of debree and the unit performed flawlessly. I would give it 5 starts but since the quality control is not good I gave it 4 stars. just keep in mind for this price it's hard to beat even if you have to take it apart to clean it before the intial use

I bought this product thinking I had a pressure washer that put out 3300 psi. After I had placed the order, I checked my machine and realized it only had an output of 2500 psi. I figured I had already placed the order and I could see where almost everyone had agreed this unit was very good, so I just waited for it to be delivered and would try it out even though it appeared I didn't have a powerful enough pressure washer. I have got to admit I could probably work the unit faster if I had a more powerful pressure washer, but the unit was so much easier to use than the wand alone. I just pushed it slowly down the driveway and it cleaned beautifully. Even though I could see where more psi would have allowed me to work faster, the relief on my back strain was well worth it. You won't be dissatisfied with this product, so just get it and save your back and some time,I'm sure you will be pleased.

The 18 in cleaner performed adequately...not great, but adequate. Perhaps it's a function of my lower psi washer than the 4200 max rated spec of the product. What attracted me to it was the diameter, zerk grease fitting and overall construction of the product. Lacking is a clear-cut way to obtain a part number for the in-line filter from Ridgid...i.e. where is Ridgid's product support webpage and why doesn't Home Depot insist on complete product support?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly recomended I own a start up power washing company, and just bought a champion 4200 psi 4 gpm power washer. I needed a surface cleaner to go along with it too. I looked around for one, but this onis the best bang for your buck. It rolls cery well, and cleans like a monster. I can almost walk at a normal pace and get a perfect clean. It is excellent build quality and is very durable too. Rigid did an excellent job!!

It came assembled and was easy to maneuver over the driveway and walkways. The job took half the time it normally takes and cleaned better than expected! I ve already shared with many of my friends via a video I took while I was using the cleaner. GOLDEN!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to use, but not deep cleaner This rotating head with two nozzles cleans a larger area faster and easier but within a year it shows stripes of more and less clean areas. Using just the wand, a cleaning would look good for 2 or 3 years, with this, only 1 or 2. I have a photo to show this if the site will let me post it.
