My old Karcher just gave up the ghost, so just grabbed this one as a replacement. Decent reviews, decent price, I like the 3 year warranty and that it comes with the surface cleaner attachment. I've seen $99 refurb deals for this model, but without the surface cleaner.

$129 in store, or choose free shipping. Special Buy price good till 6/21

HD had this bundle for the same Special Buy price (actually, $128.44) during Spring BF sale (3/30-4/9) but they sold out early (actually, they sold out of the bundled surface cleaner which has always been chronically). I settled for the smaller RY141600 pressure washer without surface cleaner for $79.

For those who already have a pressure washer but not surface cleaner: the RY31093 [homedepot.com] 11" surface cleaner from the bundle has sold for $30 separately, is well reviewed but discontinued last month. It is replaced by the new $25 RY31094 [homedepot.com] 12" surface cleaner. I'll consider the new cleaner to pair with my washer after more non-Seeds (HD's version of Amazon Vine) reviews.

FYI, these Ryobi surface cleaners use the standard 1/4" quick-connect coupler (the attach/detach action is somewhat similar to impact driver quick-connect bits) so it should be compatible with many other brands of electric pressure washers (esp. no-names and "private-label badged" China designs ones like Husky and stuff). Notably exceptions include most Karcher (German) and AR Blue (Italian) (both are giants in the industry) which use their proprietary connector for their electric pressure washers, though some of their newer models are switching to 1/4" QC.

I'm pretty sure this is the same one (rebrand) that Sams had on sale a month or so back for $100 that I picked up.

Overall, it works well. The turbo nozzle does a great job and it's well built. I found the surface cleaner to be a let down though. Yes, it cleaned, but it didn't get nearly as deep as the turbo did. Probably OK as a touch up though after a deep cleaning.

Overall, I'd recommend. People are going to say to get a gas powered one, but unless you have a huge house or use it frequently, I don't see the need. I'd say most people probably use their pressure washer 2-3x per year and don't want to mess with tuning up and maintaining a gas engine.

You can add on a Home Depot extended warranty for only $18 more. It starts after the manufacturer warranty ends so you'd be covered for 5 years, which for the total price of the unit is pretty solid.

Bought this yesterday. Chatted with HD and got them to match a Lowes coupon as well. Super solid deal.

I was going to get Sun Joe SPX3000 Pressure Joe 2030 PSI 1.76 GPM 14.5-Amp Electric Pressure Washer for $145 at Amazon for Father's Day gift to hubby. I want him to be able to wash the car at home. Now I wonder if I should get this instead?

I don't know anything about pressure washer. If anybody can educate me or recommend me a decent electric pressure washer, that will be wonderful.

We used to have a gas pressure washer when we bought our house and were trying to repair it. It stopped working long time ago and we no longer have a pressure washer. We want to use a new pressure washer to wash cars and house sidings (wood, some paints have been peeled), mainly. (We may paint the house this year.)

Also, if I buy this Ryobi pressure washer, do I need to buy any extra things to wash a car? I heard we may need a foam cannon to wash a car?

I'm going with an MTM foam cannon, it helps take off the top layer of dirt and break it down to prevent scratches and swirls

if it doesnt, well it still looks cool as hell

I have no experience with it, but this foam cannon [amazon.com] was on the front page yesterday.

Damn, it's sold out or limited stock everywhere.

I was wanting to get the Sun Joe as well. (I was tempted by the model with the reel.) Lots of positive reviews for Sun Joe. Seems like this one is not bad either I might bite.

I think foam cannons are nice to have not not a necessity. This has a detergent tank where you can add soap. My take is that this is not a bad buy. My cheap $100 washer is on the fritz after 8 years of use.
