I always wanted an electric pressure washer and this seemed to fit the bill. I received it pretty quick, the box looks small but after opening it I realized you have to assembly the black handle part, it just snaps in place, the tools required, you attach the wand hose to the machine and to the wand and hose to the machine and you are ready to clean. Honestly, I believe has enough power to be used around the house, I was able to clean my cement patio in about 30 minutes, I also washed the siding of my house, I was to shoot water all the way to the roof on a 2-story house. The power cord is long so you may not need an extension cord but for me I had to use one in some situations. I also washed my car, the foam canon was handy to soap well my ride and the water pressure took off all the debris, it looked sparkling clean when I was done, probably would take me much longer to wash is so nice without the pressure washer machine. I made a great choice getting this machine and I'm sure other will do.
