A good pressure washer and price
I have had this for two years. Originally I thought I would use it to wash my vehicle instead of the car wash...to save money over time, but the car wash is very convenient. We use it for washing house, vehicles periodically, and boat.
The one nozzle is amazing at peeling off paint...it worked well as a paint stripper so be careful.

Good Pressure Washer
Been using this pressure washer for two seasons on light duty. Only drawbacks about this pressure washer is the hose is JUNK and it kinks all the time [bought a new 3/8 pressure washer hose rated for 4000 psi at Princess for $50...well worth the money] and the pressure washer just flys through soap when you have the soap nozzle on. So I just cut my soap tank with water to counter this problem. Other then that she's been a dream.

I used this pressure washer to wash down my deck as the boards were turning black and all the black came off with ease.This is one great machine and better yet I got it on sale.No more carwash for me as now I can wash the truck and car at home.

Pretty Good unit but hose is unsuitable
My previous generation Elite Series 2550 washer worked "OK" except that the spray would stop frequently for a second or two, and then resume. I thought that this was caused by air bubbles due to cavitation/low pressure water supply.
After damaging the original hose, I bought a B & S 4000 psi hose as a replacement, and it now works perfectly and runs like a Porsche. Buy a 4000 psi replacement hose immediately and avoid the frustration.

Picked this up the other night on sale. Comes with everything you need in the box including oil. There are only a few pieces that need to be attached, and they go on without tools in a matter of minutes. Added gas and oil and it started on the second pull. I messed around with it for a while...shutting it off for short periods, and it started first pull every time. The 5 in 1 nozzle is great! Fast and easy to switch from one to another. Nice range of pressure settings too. I also love the Quiet Sense feature. When idling, this thing is really very quiet. I was pleasantly surprised. The soap dispenser works very well.
My only beef is the hose. As a few others have mentioned, it's a bit hard to handle at first. It would have been nice on a machine like this to have gone with something a little more flexible. I only gave it a 4 out of 5 for quality because of the hose. But, that's a very minor issue. Overall, I'm very impressed with this washer. Now I'm looking for more things to clean!

Great Except for Hose
This pressure washer is very powerful, it worked great for removing the unsightly green residue on the shady areas of my house.
The only problem is the hose. You can't even wind it onto the holder without the hose kinking and flying off the holder, eventually making the holder fly off also. The holder is very flimsy, and I believe I will have to buy an anti-kink hose (which CT doesn't even sell for any pressure washer over 2500 psi-- what a joke!) So I'll have to go somewhere else to buy one I guess.

This had a seamless nozzle that you could change on the fly with tons of hose. Worked very well and was able to get up to the second floor of the house which I wanted.
It sucks quite a bit of gas. You definetely don't want to leave it idling like an electronic one.

Does every job!
With the features of this model, and the cost associated with it, I would've expected a metal gun as opposed to plastic, not really an issue. The one item that I thought was over the top was the included hose, much cheaper quality than would be expected of this brand & for this cost. It easily kinks, and isnâ€™t what I wouldâ€™ve expected, however it does perform, so doesnâ€™t immediately need replacing.
But thatâ€™s it for anything bad with this unit. Overall the pressure washer performed spectacularly. I threw every job at it that Iâ€™ve ever used my Simoniz 1900 for, and it outperformed in every case; most notably were my driveway (where it cleaned old oil stains) & my fence which looks brand new again after 15 years! I also used it to clean my patio, siding, bricks, & windows on my 2 storey home. And when I was finished with that, I even did the edging on my driveway & sidewalk! Best pressure washer Iâ€™ve used yet.
