Lesson Learned on Husky HU80722, but there is a light
on June 23, 2013
The HU80722 2600 psi pump was purchased 3 years ago from Home Depot. I am a seasoned tool user and know how to take care of most items. The Husky was a very attractive when I purchased as the Honda Engine is first rate. The pump on the other hand is the Achilles heal. The number of very unfavorable reviews proves it is sub par. The pump parts themselves are very sub-par, so if you have not had issues, you probably will.
Looks like a decent pump replacement for the 7/8in shaft 2400-2600 psi pump is available at [...]. Feedback is good so far. As far as lessons learned, the soap tank needs to be drained prior to storage as the solution will harden and cause additional problems. The pump lubricant at storage time seemed to give me some extra time and another model I had lasted 20 years prior to this replacement. I fixed mine and now a friends and it appears the 120.00 for the new pump is cheaper solution than a new unit.
I will say that Husky will not be considered in my garage going forward.
