Impression of this GAS Pressure Washer (plus extra points at CT)

Looking for a Gas pressure washer. This seems to be heavily discounted and have good reviews. What worries me is I don't see a name brand for the engine, is this a generic no-name engine? I usually buy Honda or Briggs and Stratton (lawn mower).

Don't know too much about Pressure washers but after having an electric some years ago, I'd prefer a Gas model for more power. If this is a decent unit that will last, the deal gets better because there are Bonus Points available if you have the Canadian Tire Triangle Credit Card.

Any info or details? Anyone have this model?

Thanks.

I don't see much lower than $499 for name brand engines... if you see something, please post.

If you can wait until they lift the lockdown. Costco has some decent models in the low $300 range.

I would avoid Simoniz pressure washer

This model is currently sold out but you get the idea.

I have an older Homelite version of that. Its nice if you can get one that idles the engine down when you arent spraying. I missed that feature by a year. Mine will literally take the asphalt off with the dirt (from experience)

Glad I asked... but it looks like that amazing deal you quoted is long gone. Do these Home Depot units regularly go on sale or do the sell that well that they don't have to?

Bought the same one couple years back. Not sure if they changed engine suppliers since then but it looks the exact same as one pictured. Engine is made by a company called Ducar. I don't use it very frequently (bought to refinish big backyard deck) but no complaints the times I use it. I have a smaller electric one for car washes. Works well no complaints.... abit loud but nothing unexpected for gas powered. Just store indoors during winters (to avoid freezing temps) and should have any issues.
