[Costco] PowerPlay Spyder 2000 PSI Pressure Washer $189

Came across this unit as most pressure washers under $200 are out of stock or cheap crap.

With the price being about $50 less than that of the 2030, I believe this is a hot deal!

It's basically a Costco Rebranded Powerplay 2030 as specs are almost identical apart from 30 psi.

The Powerplay 2030 has very good reviews too, see below across multiple sites:

for a pressure washer, GPM is the key.

I've been waiting for another Ryobi ~$100 pressure washer deal but this one is tempting. Seems like a pretty well reviewed unit with more a bit more power and you get the Costco return policy for extra peace of mind.

Any thoughts about this one vs the Sun Joe SPX3000? I bought the Sun Joe, but it is unopened so thinking about returning it for this one. TIA.

I picked up the Kobalt for $99.
https://www.rona.ca/en/kobalt-corded-pr ... 4-46835063

Is 300 psi more worth the price jump? Same GPM (would like a little more). With the Kobalt you get a rotary nozzle and one fan (40°?).

The Spyder has a hose management system, on board soap. The Kobalt had no wire/hose management and the soap is used like a nozzle (replaces wand extension)

1.2gpm is relatively low.

This unit will do alright for an electric unit, but not fantastic. Depends what your goal with it is.

Looking for a secondary pressure washer for washing cars and cleaning the deck occasionally. Wondering If I should pull the trigger on this? Have my larger gas one for bigger jobs but hate hauling it around to wash the cars.

will it be sufficient to pressure wash an aging fence and restore it back to like-new? i guess i could compensate by using a more narrow tip?

Nope. This won't do that. If you know how to strip properly, you can get close but not like new.

yeah..don't listen to this guy.

for wood, this is more than enough - don't use a "narrow" tip otherwise you're going to ruin your wood. Stick with 15-25deg keeping your nozzle far from the wood and use a fluid sweeping motion (don't stutter/stop/etc - start off the panel, sweep up and off, then come back down, or do a fanning motion) to avoid marking (with dents) the wood - it won't come out.

where this will fall short is cleaning concrete and stuff like that - it'll work, just will take some effort/time as it's not powerful enough.

How much PSI / GPM would you feel comfortable with for cleaning concrete? I'd rather not deal with gas if I could so electric would be ideale.. suggestions on models would be appreciated.
