I can't remember the name of the Chinese OEM but it looks like it's another iteration of what's inside the Ryobi pressure washers.

All the accessory parts look the same as the Ryobi too.

Just picked up the Ryobi 1800 PSI 1.2 GPM washer from HD for $148, but I’d rather pay $89 for this one!

Wondering if the difference is in the quality of components. Ryobi comes with a 3-year warranty compared to 1-year for the Kobalt.

Never used a washer before, would this be a good one for cleaning concrete and pavers?

Picked up a Kobalt last year, had it for six months, so far so good.
Seems to be better then Kärcher in build but not as powerful
RFD Damage...lost count

The soap applicator.... Is that kinda like a foam cannon?
Seems like a pretty good deal. Might just put the trigger on this one.

No, you don't want to have this anywhere near freezing temps. In fact, don't even store it in a cold garage just in case, and you have to make sure it is totally empty of water.

Yes but with this underpowered unit, don't expect thick, shaving-cream-like foam. I have a similar unit (Armor All/Karcher version) with 1600 PSI 1.3GPM. The foam it generates is very average, but it does the job.

They are just stronger to clean things like decks and cars and whatnot. I would say at this level, it is more of a nice to have, rather than a necessity. I use mine mainly to clean the car but I still need to use a wash mitt. I used it once to clean the shed (standard ourdoor door and siding). Could I have achieved the same thing with a hose? Absolutely. Now, if you need to strip old stain off a deck or something like that, it works very well (even these basic electric units).

Since you've never owned one, the only thing with pressure washers is to store them in non-freezing temps and ensure they are completely empty of water for the winter.

Right on. Are they needed/nice to have for cleaning windows and driveway and torch-on roof? Or could it damage any of those?
