Looks decent enough.

But I saw this one the other day at Costcoin the warehouse (available for every Costco Member to purchase)

costco-karcher-pressure-washer-k1900r-1 ... #p29674590

I think i’d buy it before the one at Cdn Tire, just because
(A) it’s a Karcher, considered the first name in power washers
(B) it’s a tad more powerful (1900 vs 1800 psi) and a longer Hose (25 vs 23 Feet)
And most importantly...
(C)it’s Costco... never any hassles with Costco’s Warranty / Return Policy (not always the same at Cdn Tire)

Personally I wouldn’t buy a Simoniz no matter what the price. Complete junk. It’s a Canadian Tire house brand. There are websites dedicated to complaints. Stay away. Use the gift card for gas.
Karcher is a good name.

Agree with @Frank510

If it’s ONLY BECAUSE you have a GC
Then your better Purchase is going to be gas

Lots of RFDers who swear by Cdn Tires deals on gasoline

Consider saving it for one of those cents off promos

Too bad. Regardless. Stay clear of Simoniz. They are disposable power washers.

Had a refurbed Karcher. Dropped it off a deck. Bought a Simoniz at Canadian Tire. Used once and didnt like it. Returned it a day or two after short return period with some hassle. Bought another Karcher. Have had it for over 10 years with no issues

Look for deals on Karcher (electric) PW. You should also keep your eyes open for Stanley PW. They are made by AR Blue. An Italian company with a pump of even higher quality than Karcher.

I will probably buy this one when it goes on sale. If you read the reviews one person got it for US$165 with tax. I think they usually go on sale in April. And I will also buy this so I can mount it on the wall. You also get a 25' extension so you end up with 50' hose. Very versatile and portable. You can take it with you anywhere you wish. And of course it is made by AR Blue and is a clone of this one.
