PowerStroke 3100 PSI Gas Pressure Washer Walmart $249 B&M YMMV

I saw a couple of these at my local store for $249 and thought I'd share. The regular price is/was $324 according to Walmart's site. Brickseek is showing $175 at one other store in my area while most other stores are already out of stock (priced at $249). Also, this is only available in-store so this is major YMMV.

Unfortunately, this model doesn't have electric start like the 3200 PSI unit from last year's deal, but it's still a pretty good deal regardless - especially if you can get it for $175.

I have the 3200 PSI model from last year's deal and am very happy with it. PowerStroke seems to be a decent, established brand that is also sold at other retailers too, so product support shouldn't be an issue if something breaks.

I am wondering if I should get this? It is $249. Lowe's has the Simpson 3100 for 287 on sale and Costco will have the Husquavarna for 80 off soon for about 269. Was leaning towards the Simpson but I have no idea? Northern too had one for 250 as well some no name brand. I can't decide help!!

Yeah, I was thinking of getting the Husquavarna from Costco. I haven't looked at it too much to now all of the differences but I like the return policy.

Usually the engines in these make or break the deals. Personally I would pass if it had a Briggs engine, and jump on it of it had the Suburu or Honda (general consensus is these are best). I bought last year's Costco powerstroke deal with elec start and the Suburu, and it's quiet and starts quick every time.

Agreed. I researched tons of washers and anything short of having a Honda, Subaru, or Yamaha got mixed reliability reviews. I ended up buying Simpson with a Honda GX200 and I'm glad I spent a little extra $$$.

Direct Tools is great and has a lot of really good deals, but unless there is a local store where I could inspect it before purchase and return it if necessary, I wouldn't touch a large, heavy, complex used item like this that would be a huge pain to deal with if it didn't work as expected.

Either that, or consider it a great as-is deal and fix it myself if needed.

While I agree, I'd rather replace a pump than deal with the frustration of a finicky or problematic engine.

One Walmart around me has it in stock for $249. Another one has zero stock and is selling for $75.

Anyone have advice on sweet talking the staff to let me do a return/rebuy at the store with the lower price?

Don't sweet talk. Just return and rebuy when they put it back on the shelf.

April 15th it will be $80 off. It's a Briggs and Stratton engine though. But if anything goes wrong you have Costco warranty. I've been on the hunt for a solidly built gas pressure washer, but I can't find a bullet proof one with great reviews anywhere. Seems they all have their issues here and there, even with the Honda engines. Pump, that's at least $100 for a new one.
