Take this into consideration before your purchase

At the core of this unit, there’s a Generac OHV engine. With high-quality motor you get excellent performance. To be precise, this means you’ll have 2,800 PSI at your disposal with a flow rate of 2.4 GPM. Included with this model is a 25-foot hose, optimal for most jobs.

What We Didn’t Like

Our tests showed this unit to be capable of completing everything from light to heavy tasks. With that said, we couldn’t help but notice a few minor flaws and potential downsides while using it.

Like with many other models, the included 25-foot hose is not ideal for every job. Sometimes it lacks reach so you end up moving it around more than you might like. Other times, it’s not able to get to higher up places. Despite the fact that it has wheels, it’s still a 57 lbs. unit.

Another thing we noticed is that the hose included with this gas pressure washer is not the best. Although we didn’t have any leaks or problems, the hose seems like a weak spot. If you don’t mind the expense and need a more length, get a high-quality hose from a reputable brand

What Do Other Say?

There’s no shortage of reviews online. The majority of them are positive, while some are negative. Most people find this machine to have more than enough power and versatility for all household cleaning jobs. However, users mention not being able to wash second story siding, for example. Some also say they don’t like having to move the main unit around while cleaning cars and trucks. Other than that, it seems to be a strong and reliable unit.
