I had this one, good pressure but make sure you keep the hose away from the exhaust it burnt a hole in mine when I wasn't looking. Also started leaking gas after 6 months, neither Subaru or power stroke would fix it. I ended taking it back to Costco for a full refund no questions asked. Definitely worth the risk if you get it from Costco because their return policy is so good.

Also I should add that the plastic around the wand tip blew off after 3 months

Went through two units last summer. Thank God for the Costco return policy. We thought it was bad quality control, but even the supposedly reliable Subaru engines had unexpected issues. These sounded good on paper. We have an older northern tools northstar pressure washer that still works, weighs a ton, gets the job done (slowly), but needed electric start for girlfriend. Plus replacement expenses of wand, nozzle tips, hose and other things seemed like this powerstroke was more economical for long run. Was going to craigslist the northstar p/w. Thought this PS would a great deal. Hope all of yours works without big or little issues for this years production run. Everything I researched on gas pressure washers seem to show only one decent model under $400, the SIMPSON Cleaning MSH3125-S 3100 PSI at 2.5 GPM Gas Pressure Washer Powered by HONDA with OEM Technologies Axial Cam Pump [amazon.com]. But NO electric start for those with any harsh physical movement constraints. Always read the most recent reviews for anything. That will show if there is a problem with the newer produced units.

Personally I think Honda engine is a myth as engine is not going to be the issue with most of the washers. Like the inverters for generators, the pump is the crucial component for the washers. I'd def also look for a lowly Yamaha or Kohler engine paired with a CAT triplex pump.
