I have a gas powered Honda myself, so I can't comment. Have you looked at the home depot reviews (about 1500)? A lot are positive. Some compare the karcher models. Hope that helps a tiny bit.

Yes it does, I skimmed through them. Was wondering if any slick dealers had any experience with it.

Agreed. It is so much better to have a real person talk about the pros and cons instead of a inanimate comment from an unknown person. Hope someone can answer you. This post looks slow today.

Surprisingly good for small jobs. This isn't something you're going to want to clean a big driveway with a few times a year for example but for smaller walkways, etc. it isn't bad. I use mine mainly to clean off some decks and while it does take a little longer than my old gas one it's extremely quiet, very portable, and did the job.I got tired of my gas ones dying due to infrequent use so hopefully this will last awhile longer.

I can't speak for this particular model, but I have the "little brother" version, and it works quite well:

I used this one to clean mold from the vinyl siding on the back wall of my two story home, as well as a concrete walkway - did a great job, and no danger of spalling the concrete like the higher PSI gas powered models. Also worked great cleaning up an old walk-behind leaf blower. Compact, quiet, and easy to store. No gas to buy, no oil to change. The gas powered ones have their place, but for light to medium homeowner use, I love the electric powered ones.

May I ask did the gas engines die or the pump die? What were the makes of pressure washers that died? Would appreciate knowing bad makes to warn friends. Thanks. My 11 hp Honda is close to 15 years old and starts on the third or fourth pull after sitting for most of the year. I use gas stabilizer religiously.

I dunno what died. It just wouldn't start anymore so I guess the engine? I don't recall the make to be honest. I usually got them after clearance at the end of a season for pretty cheap so I didn't expect a whole lot from them nor did I really need to. A more expensive and more powerful one would have been better cared for I have to admit Big Grin

At least they fulfilled their purpose. If it was a gas problem a lot of carburetors are easy to clean. Thanks for your time.

Bought the $89 snow blower. What the heck it'd be better than manual snow shoveling lol. Thumbs up and thanks!

I had the trimmer combo. I had to return it. Battery failed twice. It would not charge.
