  • Heavy Duty Washer at Medium Duty Price.

    Aug 18, 2002 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Plenty of power. Very Easy Operation. Cleans almost anything
    Cons: Hose connection placement could be better. Soap dispenses only on low pressure.

    Summary: This review was my second review that I wrote here at Epinions. It has seen many views and has been a great review, but I think that it is time for an update. I bought the Craftsman 6.5 hp Gas Pressure Washer in the summer of 2002. It is still ... read more

    Pros: Good engine and sufficient construction
    Cons: Pump is junk from the get go

    Summary: I was thinking about buying a pressure washer and discussed this with a friend who said " this is your lucky day". A few months earlier, his wife bought him  the Craftsman pressure washer discussed here: brand new. After assembling it, he put it in ... read more

    Pros: None
    Cons: It falls apart and pieces come flying off.

    Summary: Ok, We bought 3 of the pressures washers for the rent houses. Used the first one and the hose split near the handle split in the first use Sear fixed it, there was no kinks in it either like Sears said that there must has been. It happened again a little ... read more

  • Failures not due to the users.

    May 3, 2009 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: The tank injection is handy; the "cool down system" described is a good idea.
    Cons: Too bad the poorly designed pump makes the overall assessment "next to worthless." 

    Summary: The failure of these pumps is not due to the users leaving them running while doing something else as one claimed is likely the case.  The instructions allow for short breaks in use, saying not to exceed 3-5 minutes ("If you run the engine on your ... read more

    Pros: NONE!
    Cons: They use cheap parts inside these units and they know they're ripping people off!

    Summary: I, too, have a Craftsman pressure washer..it's been sitting for a couple of years now because the water pump housing broke off where one of the bolts goes. I think I bought it in April 2003 or '04. The first one I got leaked gas everywhere on the first ... read more

    Not rated yet
    Pros: NONE
    Cons: Neither Manufacturer or Supplier stand behind their products.

    Summary: This is the biggest scam ever. The pressure washer worked fine the first time and then when I went to use it for the 2nd time it did not have any pressure. I took it to Sears where I bought it and they told me it was out of warranty and that it would be ... read more

    Summary: Purchased 6.6.08 for around $350.  It has been used a maybe 5 times to wash the patio and sidewalks.  Tried to use it last week and there was no pressure.  Contacted local Sears and it was strongly suggested that I had done something to ... read more

    Pros: When it worked it did a good job.
    B/S Engine runs great
    Cons: Fuel System easily clogs up
    Tires constantly lose air
    PUMP IS CHEAP JUNK JUNK JUNK

    Summary: I have searched all over and have found (a little late) that this sprayer has failed over and over with the same problems. The B/S Engine runs great but the pump is nothing but crap and will fail. Bearings in mine failed after less than 10hrs of use. A ... read more

    Pros: None
    Cons: Poorly designed, cheap parts, potentially lethal due to exploding/flying parts.

    Summary: Worked fine the firsts few times I used it and them BLAMMO!! Like everyone I have read in the reviews, the cheap piece of junk pump assembly blew apart!  Fortunately, my son who was standing near the machine, did not get hit by the highly ... read more

    Pros: B & S engine is fine; started quickly after sitting all winter; never any problems.
    Cons: Cheap imported pump manufactured with low-grade steel; both tires constantly leaked air; wand settings jammed.

    Summary: I can only echo what the vast majority of other reviewrs state: this Craftsman pressure washer is a poorly-desinged and manufactured product.  After one season, the Italian-made pump blew out one bolt and sheared off another as it exploded in ... read more

    Pros: Good power and easy starting when unit is working.
    Cons: Water pump design is clearly faulty

    Summary: I am thankful I did not BUY this washer, I borrowed it from my dad, who was frustrated with the pump exploding every time he used it. He re-built the pump twice. He doesn't seem to care what happens to it at this point. The bolts either come loose or ... read more

    Pros: None
    Cons: Sears Sucks

    Summary: The first one I bought had to be replaced since it constantly leaked oil! The next one blew one of the three plastic screws that hold the water pressure. Of coarse no part number for that piece since it is a special order piece. The parts store told me ... read more

  • Terrible Machine

    Jun 24, 2008 by

    Pros: Worked as it should for the first couple jobs.
    Cons: Design, Engineering, Materials, Functionality, Cost, Cheap garbage.

    Summary: This machine is not worth its weight in scrap metal. The engine is fine, but every other component on the machine is terrible. The hose real was a joke. The tires lost air pressure, the nozzles were always falling out of their holders on the wand. and oh ... read more

    Pros: NONE
    Cons: Cheap Crap

    Summary: I bought it in May 0f 2001 and it performed very well the few times I used it that summer. Next year, right after the warranty expired, it just didn't have enough pressure to do even the lightest cleaning. I rebuilt the pump myself at a cost of $ 112.00 ... read more

    Pros: Engine runs good. Starts easily after setting up for several months
    Cons: The design of the pump has to be faulty. Recall should be made.

    Summary: I purchased this on 5/20/03 ($399.99). I have only used it about 6 times for @ 2 hours each. The fourth time I used it the bolts for the pump sheared off. Went to local hardware store and purchased new bolts and repaired myself. Yesterday I was using it ... read more

    Pros: Good, when you follow instructions!
    Cons: Replacement pumps are costly.

    Summary: CAUTION: Read these reviews with an open mind. Although it's possible that the Sears pressure washers that have been reviewed do have defective or inferior quality pumps, it is much more likely that the pumps failed because the users left the units on ... read more

    Pros: Motor (a Briggs & Stratton) works great.
    Cons: Pump failed after minimal usage. Nozzle would not adjust off of high pressure.

    Summary: Pump failed to produce pressure after very limited use. It was out of warranty, of course, though it had been used very little. A replacement pump (w/o installation) is more than $200, so it doesn't make sense to replace, especially since I'd be ... read more
