Actually for 160 bucks this is a good deal for a car washer siding and deck cleaner. Wont get cheaper than that. just remember not to use longer than 50' garden hose.

Never had a pressure washer before, but was looking into one this year. Does anyone know how this compares to the Sun Joe over at HD?

Price there is $198, regular price - so I'm trying to figure out why this one is normally $340+, other than it being a Briggs & Stratton...

Can this clean concrete of 20 years of crud or do I need to look at a gas model?

No.

The GPM just isn't there. If you use this, expect just runny soap, not foam.

Crap. Got a brand new foam cannon and my pressure washer is the same GPM as this one. Oh well, guess I'll be keeping my eye out for a good price on a stronger one.
Yes you can, you just need to change the orifice to a 1.1mm instead of a 1.25mm.

PS: I am using a Karcher K1700.

What's the risk of > 50' hose? Hadn't heard this before.

Stop spreading wrong information.

I use a 1.7gpm with a 1.1mm orifice and it just passes as foam but barely.

This 1.2gpm would be pathetic for this application.

The min for most foam cannons is 2gpm as per documentation.

You're the one who should stop, my K1700 is 1.2gpm and I'm using a foam cannon with it.

I bought this last year to clean my patio with. It's surprisingly strong, I used it on my siding and it stripped off some old paint.

Something about the motor working too hard to keep up the pressure.

From Home Depot.

We do not recommend using a high pressure hose or garden hose that exceeds 50 feet with any of our pressure washers. This is due to the length of the hoses diminishing the PSI put out from the water source/pump which can overwork the pump.

I've never had a pressure washer before.. is this unit loud? I just watched a sample video of it, and it emitted no sounds at all? I have a neighbor who was using theirs, and it was *loud*..

I use 1.9gpm, 1.3gpm and 1.5gpm electric pressure washers. All have worked phenomenally with the two separate foam cannons I have. Saying you need minimum 2.0gpm because the documentation says so is incredibly wrong. Yes with lower GPM you are seeing less water but for many with a metered connection, this is also a benefit.

Get one of those cheap MATCC foam cannons off amazon and you should be good for washing cars. A quality foaming sudsy soap is just as essential too.

Both are electric pressure washers but that is really where the similarities end. The SunJoe is an inferior pressure washer with a motor more prone to failure. Induction brushless motors last longer. The design is also part of the reason. You have something made of steel and easily foldable versus a large piece of plastic. A comparable SunJoe would probably be their SPX3500 or SPX4000 models with induction motors as well. Plus like you acknowledged, it's a Briggs and Stratton motor too which is more quality.

A homeowner will never wear out those brushes for the lifetime of the washer, so it makes virtually no difference.

B&S makes decent gas motors, they don't make electric motor.
