This review is from: Rockford CPU0207 2,000 PSI 1.6 GPM Electric Pressure Washer (Lawn & Patio)
At first everything was great. The unit arrived quickly, it set up easily, and was surprisingly powerful as I cleaned my cement walkways. Then at about hour two, it tipped over and one of the wheels cracked right off. Perhaps it is my fault for tipping it over, but the machine has a somewhat narrow base for its height, and as you work, it is easy to forget and tug the hose. Then, timber! What is clear is that it is the manufacturer's fault for equipping a fairly heavy machine with cheap plastic wheels. I won't bother contacting the maker because at best I will get an equally cheesy plastic replacement wheel. I went to the hardware store and picked up a couple of solid replacement lawnmower wheels, but installing them is proving a pain because of different axel sizes and length. So I have had to retrofit with teflon spacers, etc., but all this should not have been necessary. The plastic hose connector also look like it won't hold up, so I will buy a brass one before the original equipment fails. Disconcertingly, when I went to review this machine, I found that during the five days between purchase and arrival,Amazon had withdrawn it because of some complaints from customers. Just my luck to have gotten the last onel
