We bought this one on Friday. Been working on the driveway and sidewalk and it's making easy work of that. Already on the 3rd tank of gas. Engine runs strong and makes plenty of power.

Looks like a decent pressure washer. I like a few of the features like the soap dispenser and pump protector. Haven't had good luck with axial pump pressure washers even with routine maintenance. Buy a triplex pump if you can find on for this price range. Normally start about $400. Bought mine for $229 few years ago

Does have a Honda engine at least. Probably not a bad price.

Only relevant if the pump is good since I was almost always fail first.

I've searched up and down the past few weeks for a sub $400 triplex pump and it's no where to be found. Everything that I found has a axial type pump regardless of what engine they have. I ended up with the ryobi 3300 with axial pump and the gvc190 honda engine with idle down feature. I will be returning it as I'm looking for a throttle control as all these honda gcv160 - 190s are all fixed wide open throttle all the time. I know many don't care but I don't need/want WOT all the time.

The gvc190 is LOUDDD when operating. I have neighbors to annoying and this thing is uncomfortable loud within 20 feet. Ear plugs do the trick but this a absurd. I had to wheel it out behind my garage (ryobi comes with 50ft hose) in order not to be annoyed. Not sure how much the 160 is but I'm not one to complain about noise. Ryobi also offers a model for $360 that has the 160 honda/axial pump auto diluted detergent etc but again fixed throttle... I'll be returning for a Simpson with a kohler engine that has similar engine specs and axial pump WITH throttle control. I loose the auto detergent tank but I don't really plan on using it all that much.

For the average Joe who keeps this machines well maintained, I would plan 5 years or so with regular use, like other said before the axial pumps will fail well before the engine if kept. The Craftsman's pictured is the same setup as many similar brands, fixed throttle which I hate. The honda manual states "optimization" is at full throttle. Its undue stress to keep the engine wide open 24/7. I'm not a fan of fixed throttles can you tell?

Tech tip with honda gvc engines, when your checking oil,DO NOT screw in to check dipstick level. You will over if you check with cap screwed in. This is straight from the manual. Not sure why honda went this route as common practice is screw in all the way. Also you DO NOT pour the entire bottle. Not sure if Craftsman's supplies the same bottle as ryobi but you pour all but 2 oz or so.and check and fill after using the PW for a bit.
