Default ...and ANOTHER pressure washer thread. Different brand... reviews look really good!

I'm about to throw my gas pressure washer on Craigslist along with my 2 man pole hole digger... and replace the power washer with this:

https://www.amazon.com/Joe-SPX3000-P...ressure+washer

Good? Junk? That's a lot really good reviews. I saw the part about the connector being crappy... but the rest of it?

Thoughts?

How good can it be for $142 dollars but with a 2yr warranty I guess it is worth a shot

What's wrong with your gas powered one?

Just get a $79 on sale Harbor Freight electric pressure washer and the 2 year no questions asked replacement policy.Write the date on the top of the washer and the day before it expires,take it back and get a brand new one.Yes it works fine.Plenty of pressure for pretty much anything I routinely do.I have a larger gas powered unit for the occasional big jobs,but rarely use or need it.

The gas one is heavy, and it's a pain in the butt to deal with.

Report back on how it works


Personally I agree with the above

The gas ones are heavy and akward and these don't last for crap. Never had an electric one I liked.

Have been reading a lot on people having problems with there gas pressure washers. Before you sotore it shut the gas off and let the engine run all the gas out of the carburetor and this will eliminate a lot of problems with the engine. Let mine sit for a year at a time and it starts back up every time no problems.

Being heavy and bulky is another issue.

I have a gas pressure washer with a Honda engine it starts everytime it will sit for a year and fire right up I also put stabile in the gas.Best thing I like about gas pressure washers is you don't need a extension cord to run it they are bulky to store just like anything you get what you pay for in the end.

Dont have that exact brand but bought one from lowes think its go green or something like that and really impressed with it. Use it all the time for cleaning the boat. My only complaint is the hose gets kinked easily.

I bought an electric on amazon pretty much strictly for powerwashing my deck. I paid around $140 for it.

it does ...ok....but far, far and away from the 4000 psi honda gas unit I used to have. There is just no comparison , IMO between gas and electric. My electric is just bit better then a regular water hose with good pressure.
