If and when the bearing that attaches to the spray bar wears out causing the bar to no longer rotate this product is absolutely worthless. The bearing assembly is the heart of the surface cleaner and conveniently is the only part that has no part number which means you need to shell out another $600 bucks to replace this product.

    I have used this with a 4000psi pressure washer, it does an excellent job no matter how filthy the surface is in a fraction of the time that it would have taken by only using the spray gun and there is no water or debris flying everywhere thanks to the water nozzles being covered. If you have a pressure washer with less PSI I'm not sure if it will do as good of a job as it did with mine but if your is 4000psi you will be very happy with the results and how fast it cleans. I did my driveway, my sister's driveway and other 2 neighbors for free in just a few hours. I'm very happy with my purchase.

    This surface cleaner worked well beyond what I imagined. This tool reduced cleaning time by about 4X compared to using a wand. I will say that on our 3500PSI 4.5GPM powerwasher the surface cleaner blew through the job but putting it on the 2600PSI 2.5GPM washer you had to go a lot slower.

    The best purchase I could have made for my job. It weighs nothing, super easy to use and clean super well. I recommend buying it because it has a good measure.

      the surface cleaner cuts the cleaning time by 1/3 or more, just go at a slow pace forward and back in the same path, then overlap like you're mowing. seems to be built well and easy to assemble. There are only two thing I want to point out to potential buyers is, they call it a 21 inch, the physical housing is only 20 1/4 inches wide and the actual cleaning path is only 17 inches. So I don't see where they can call it a 21 inch. other than the size, it works great, cuts the cleaning time substantially, less fatigue on the back and wrists. I had it paired to a Simpson ALK 4033 which is a 4000psi with 3.3gpm. The only question I have about the pump on the pressure washer is Cat, the brand of the pump says its a 3000psi at 3.2gpm and Simpson says its a 4000psi at 3.3gpm. The surface cleaner comes with 25 degree tips and a number 2 size hole. If a person could find different jets to match better to different pressure washers would be helpful. The other thing I want to point out is, when cleaning a flat driveway, it loosens the dirt and slime very well but every so often you need to use a garden hose or attach the wand to the pressure washer to wash the dirt away, if you don't it just lays there and dries in place. and to switch from wand to surface cleaner: 1. turn off pressure washer 2. turn off water 3. relieve pressure 4. disconnect surface cleaner 5. connect wand 6. turn on water 7. get air out of line 8. start pressure washer. Even having to swap back and fourth several times doing our driveway, it still cuts the cleaning time down dramatically. It can be used in garages too, very little mist comes from under the cleaner deck, unlike using the wand in a garage, that will hose down everything!!!

        Parts missing!
        Just got one in the mail yesterday since its not available at a store near me. After opening the package I realized that there was no instruction manual or pins to hold the handle together and attach it to the base. I'm going to have to figure a way to put it together by tomorrow since I have a driveway and sidewalk to clean. Other than that the product looks well built to last.

            I have a pressure washing business and use this product at least 5 times a week. It's never let me down as long as your machine is at least 4000psi

              Good but not great
              This sweeper does a good job but somewhat slower then my others and streaks if I don't slow the process down. With 3 nozzles instead of 2 like my others I may not have enough psi on my 3500 and 3800 psi machines to make up for the 3rd nozzle. I need to try this product with a 4200 psi washer to see if it helps with the streaking but I don't have one available for test. Really would rather use the 19" 2 nozzle sweeper instead of this 3 nozzle if that's the case because 4200 psi machines are much more expensive than 3500 or 3800 psi machines.

              Toolmaker
              I wanted to purchase a Surface Cleaner because I have a lot of driveway to take care of. It takes a lot of time to clean with a power washer and a wand, and it pretty much kills your arms after a few hours. I looked around to see what was available, but all of the attachments and surface cleaners that I could find were made of plastic or fiberglass and did not cover enough area in a pass. I found this one on line and it's description sounded just like what I thought I needed. I called and placed the order, and it showed up within a week. I unpacked it and assembled it in about an hour. I took the time to look over every piece. I liked the way it was packaged, and the assembly was vary simple. The only thing I needed a wrench for was the hose connection. I put it to work right away. It is just the right height to make it comfortable to use. It did not bother my arms at all. I would recommend this surface cleaner to anyone that has a lot of surfaces to clean. Driveways, patio's, sidewalks, garage floors, you name it! I forgot to mention that it is not real heavy. It is well made, and it looks vary nice! (Stainless is pretty)

              Good product, poor wheels
              Works very well on driveway and sidewalks. BUT....for the Money!! The wheels need to be better quality.... so they swivel easier.

              Easy to assemble and works great, but mine has bent wheel brackets.
              This cleaner works very well and does what it is suppose to do...mine came by UPS and when I got it all assembled I started using it and I noticed the thing was very hard to push and pull...after a lot of tugging I found the wheel brackets were bent and the wheels were not able to move freely, nor in the same direction ...I haven't tried to fix the problem as of yet, but I am going to see if I can adjust the brackets and if I can't, I will be returning this unit. For an exchange...

              Does a good job
              It is a good product for cleaning driveways and sidewalks. It is lightweight and easy to use. You must take your time and work with the finish of the concrete, kind of like when you sand wood. Found it best to push in to position then pull back slowly. The size of the spray pattern does a quick job as compared to using a normal nozzle. The ergonomics are the only reason for not getting five stars. The left handle is about 4" longer than the right. HD rents them so try one out at $18 for four hours.
