I used this to wash my deck (approx 300 sq ft), a jungle gym, and a small slide set. It took me about 3 hours to wash them all, and the Karcher was fantastic. I did make one modification to the Karcher - the hose attachment is plastic and I had concerns about its reliability, so I've permanently attached a "quick connect" to it. The variable spray wand works well, and the zero nozzle is extremely powerful (you want to hold this at least 2-3 inches away from the deck). I haven't used the brush attachment yet. I didn't even need to use detergent to clean the deck, though I did try the detergent 'mix' setting on the variable spray wand and was satisfied with the results. Pros:
- Great value for money
- quiet operation - motor hums only when trigger is pressed
- good pressure and water flow
- extremely portable
- Karcher warranty/replacement program Cons:
- trigger needs a lock, your hand tends to pain if you've got to keep the trigger pressed and wave the wand for a few hours
- hose attachment is plastic and feels flimsy and needs to be made of brass, but workaround is to use a quick connect to minimize stress
- no cord reel
Echo the sentiments of the above poster. In my case, Karcher lasted all of two uses before gasket/manifold leak. Had product for 53 weeks......thus placing it outside the manufacturer warranty. Local Karcher service center wants $40 to 'look' at problem so as to provide estimate. Spent upwards of $200 on original product and will NEVER purchase Karcher again. If you are considering this product, please look elsewhere.
After 9 uses a crack developed in the pressure chamber and now water squirts from everywhere but the gun
This product quit working approximately 2 weeks after purchase. It was a gift for my Father's birthday and he used it a couple of times and then it quit working. This was very distressing!
I have read many negative reviews about this (and other) electric pressure washers, but I took a chance because I did not want to spend well over $200 for a gas pressure washer.
I have only owned this for a month, but my wife and I have used this on the car, house siding, cement pool deck, the kids outdoor toys and wood furniture. The results are so good that it is hard to stop. We keep looking for more to wash. It is very easy to use and as of now we have not had any problems.
It is plastic so I would suggest being very carefull especially where the hose connects. I recommend using a quick release for this.
At this point it gets 5 stars from me, but I am curious to see how it holds up.
I love this machine. It works for everything I have used around the house. I found the customer service to be excellent and they recommended two accessories for cleaning my deck that I wish would have been found here. Great machine Great price Great value. I returned the Campbell for this unit.
This is an awesome power washer. I have the same one at work and after using it for a week doing all sorts of jobs, I was hooked. This washer is great.
