I like this pressure washer because it is effective and relatively inexpensive. I had never owned a pressure washer before I bought this one, but now that I know how many things a pressure washer can be used for, I don't know what I would do without it.

I was impressed with how small and light it was. It's easy to store once you find a good way to keep the cord untangled and dry (I use twist ties and a plastic grocery bag). Even when it was hooked up and running, I had no trouble holding it with one hand. The machine is powerful enough for most cleaning jobs, which is basically what I use it for. Because it's not heavy duty, it's easy to control.

Though I originally bought it to easily clean patio furniture, I have found many uses for it. Instead of pulling the weeds out or spraying them with pesticides I take out the pressure washer. It gets rid of the weeds, the roots of the weeds, and even blasts out a lot of the soil trapped between the stones, which discourages future week growth. My sidewalks have never looked better. I love that I don't have to get on my hands and knees to wash the bottom of house, the cracks in the pavers, or the tires on the car. It makes jobs that I would never have attempted before (like washing the siding) possible.

My only complaint is that, because of the inexpensive construction, there are a few small leaks in the washer around the connections. These aren't big leaks and they don't seem to affect the usefulness of the product, but having a constant drip falling down onto your pants and shoes is an irritation I would rather do without. However, I'm willing to overlook this small annoyance in a product that is otherwise useful and inexpensive.
