Pros: engine started promptly
Cons: Water pump replacement too expensive and wears out too quickly.
Purchased this pressure washer in April of 2003. Have not used it much since buying. Used it this week to power wash my house. As I was using it the water pump blew, bolts fell off and water was spewing from the pump. Took the washer to the local Sears repair center. I was informed that it would cost me $350.00 to repair. I purchased it at $439.00. This is outrageous! Just a ploy for Sears to get you to buy there insurance on their items which is very expensive. Would not purchase this item again.
