I just picked this pressure washer up from Costco and wanted to share my thoughts on it as well as list information about it as Costco usually takes this information down once they have sold out of this model.
After some research on this model I decided I wanted to try it out. My local Costco stores had all sold out of this pressure washer so I had to drive an hour away to Rochester MN to pick it up.
Coolest Feature – Electric Start
The Motor – Subaru EA190
Built In Battery
My Overall Review:
I would have to say that for the price I paid and Costco’s lifetime warranty this was a great buy. Most pressure washers only have a 1-2 year warranty, but since Costco has a no questions asked satisfaction guarantee warranty, you basically have a lifetime warranty. I paid $300 for this unit and missed the sale that they had a week before. In the Costco coupon book there was a $30 off coupon for this pressure washer. I figured it was still a great deal all because of the excellent warranty.
Starting the PowerStroke Subaru engine is a breeze with the electric start. I really enjoy it even though you have to play with the choke every now and then, but I guess that is expected. Assemble was very easy. All I had to do was attach the arm to the frame, plug in the hoses, add the included bottle of oil and lastly add the gas.
The first use with this power washer was to pressure wash my concrete driveway. I needed to clean it so that I could seal it. With 3100 PSI it did an amazing job at cleaning it. I also used a surface cleaner to finish it 10x faster.
The only thing that I do not like is the included hose it tangled really easily and liked to coil up. I am guessing it will uncoil more over time so its not that big of a deal. I could also just buy a better one, but I will wait until this one fails. Overall I would give this pressure washer a 5 out of 5 stars mainly because it features 3100 PSI at $300 with Costco’s lifetime warranty. You really can’t beat that.
