Karcher 1800 PSI Gas Pressure Washer

Pros:Starts fairly easily Slick yellow paint job Long hose for the wand Less expensive

Cons:Unit not balanced on the wheels at all. Not durable Terminally designed!

The Bottom Line: If you have just ONE JOB to do, do it, and then return the unit to the seller - not very ethical though. It WILL fail!!


Save yourself lots of agony AFTER you buy this one. Mine worked and it worked well for about 2 house washings last year - we moved from Chicago suburbs to Raleigh area It worked great and started easily with the little 3.75 Briggs motor on it. On the the 3rd washing, where I was cleaning my patio cushions (nice application for an 1800 psi washer by the way) mine went into a tail spin - never lacked for water supply - ever - but the pump came loose on the motor. I found all the 1/2" bolts had worked loose and COULD NOT BE TIGHTENED back into their mountings! This pump is made of cheap junk and just would not mount back snugly to the engine at all! Then the motor would begin burbling black smoke out of it as if it were choking itself - no choke on this motor though. Quick inspection showed me there were NO ADJUSTMENTS on the engine at the carb. And the carb appeared to be pressed into the air inlet manifold on the side of the little Briggs motor - could not have been made cheaper. I may fiddle with it until I get so fed up that it becomes a boat anchor. Total use was fewer than 10 hours on this unit, but I bought it at a Menards Home Improvement store in Chicago area (Libertyville) so now I'm hooped for getting any prayer for returning it to them. Go for a Craftsman - Sears is much more user friendly if their stuff poops on you. Sorry if the truth hurts, but that's the TRUTH!
