Make outdoor cleaning jobs easier and save water while you're at it. This lightweight, convenient electric pressure washer generates 2000 PSI of water pressure - more than enough to clean vehicles, boats, siding, patio furniture, decks, barbeques and more. It won't strip paint or deep clean oil stains, but it makes light to medium duty cleaning tasks go much faster and easier. For added cleaning power, add pressure washer soap to the built-in detergent tank, and use the included black nozzle to automatically mix soap into the water flow.
You'll save water compared to a garden hose too, thanks to the force-multiplying power of the pump and nozzles. Includes a built-in hose reel for faster deployment and storage. Complete with three spray nozzles and a turbo-jet high pressure nozzle.

I expected this unit to be very cheap and plasticy, considering the price, but in reality it seems to be very high quality. Two of the fittings are nice brass (hose-to-pump, and high-pressure-hose-to-gun), and the others are aluminum. The gun 'barrel' is metal as well. The plastic body of the unit feels very sturdy and durable, and is compact yet sufficiently weighty. The gun-to-barrel connection has a little play to it, but there is no leaking.
The length of the cord and the length of the hose make this a very maneuverable unit. I was concerned with having to drag a cord behind me, but you just set the unit in one spot and have a 20-foot radius to work with. Easy.
Hooking up the washer is simple enough, but MAKE SURE TO PURGE ALL AIR FROM THE GARDEN HOSE BEFORE CONNECTING IT TO THE WASHER. I skipped this step a few times and the pump would just run continuously sans water (not good). Otherwise, just remember that when you turn the washer on, the pump will run for a second or two then will seemingly shut off. This is normal - just grab the gun, press the trigger and the pump will turn on automatically. The nozzle is easy to adjust, from a narrow "jet" stream to a soft, wide spray.
The pressure from this washer is sufficient for most of the jobs I attempted. The biggest project was cleaning the green, mildewy buildup (a Seattle specialty) off a large painted deck and a long wooden fence. I had to work slowly because of the low gallons-per-minute, and use a fairly narrow spray pattern (approx. 3-4 in. spread) to keep the pressure up, but it made the deck and fence look brand new. At times, when I got too close, the paint was easily stripped, so I'm not sure additional pressure would have been all that helpful, besides allowing for a wider spray and speeding up the job a bit. I also made the dark, stained wood of an old trellis look bright and new, cleaned off my garage floor, and cleaned my car's floor mats.
The only project that this washer had troubles with was cleaning off the concrete steps in front of my house, including a large paint splatter (approx. 3 sq. ft.) The washer could only take off small chips of paint when set on the narrowest "jet" nozzle setting, so it would have taken an hour or more to remove the paint. I ended up using a chemical stripper, then pressure washing, which worked fine. The concrete steps were also darkened, and the washer struggled a bit to brighten them up. I had to use a narrower nozzle setting (approx. 2-inch spread) and work very slowly, but it eventually did the job.
I used the washer non-stop for about five or six hours and never had any problems. Only time will tell how long it will last in the long run...
Overall, I am very happy with this pressure washer. No, it won't perform like a big gas-powered beast that costs ten-times more, but for small to medium projects and general cleaning, it has worked perfectly for me so far.
An update: the washer lasted the whole summer, including a large project cleaning moss off my roof. It is not a speed demon, but it works. And, one tip for jobs that involve cleaning dirty/dingy/mossy surfaces: using a solution of bleach and water, with a bristle brush with long handle, give the work surface a brief scrub down first, let stand for a few minutes, then pressure wash. So much easier.
Another summer, another update: I used this to clean my entire driveway (roughly 14 x 40) and it did great, though again, it was a bit slow.
I missed having one for washing my cars and cleaning the house exterior so I got this one. When I got the box from UPS it was quite smaller and lighter than I had imagined. My Karcher was big and heavy. It even had wheels which this one does not because there is no need for them. This Snap On is pretty small and lightweight. I was surprised at this. It was easy to put together. The hose seemed a little cheap to me though and the power cord was VERY long which some will love but I don't have a huge need for it as there are plugs throughout my home. The hose is not as thick as my previous one or ones I have seen at Sears. One thing that I was not pleased with was that there was slight damage to the metal sprayer and on the face of the washer upon opening the box. The damage was nothing significant that would not make the machine work but still it's supposed to be new right??? Anyway I decided not to make a huge deal out of it but it still bugged me.
As for its use, the power is there but the nozzle could be better. When you have it open at its widest, there is no pressure. It just kind of fizzes out. Also the adjustable nozzle has a rather small adjustment range too. At its smallest, the pressure was very tight. It was enough to clear the dirt off my exhaust pipes. At its widest size, I wish it was wider for like hosing down the car or wood panels on the house.
All in all, a decent power washer for small time use. Rather lightweight and compact but we'll see about the quality in the long run.
In late 2012, this thing started leaking oil from the bottom. It got EVERYWHERE!!! I placed it into the trash can. Snap On should not be putting their reputation for this poor quality product!
