Homelite Pressure Washer | Unsolicited Product Review
0 Flares 0 Flares ×
Hello Friends and Happy Saturday!
Last weekend was absolutely gorgeous, and I as well as most of the neighbors were outside working on our lawns and gardens. I also had to head over to Home Depot to replace a Pressure Washer which had been broken for years, and get new seat cushions for the patio furniture.
Hubby isn’t fully recovered yet so I had to make the purchase as well as put it together myself. Knowing that there are other woman who may need to do the same, I decided to do an unsolicited review on the process.
I purchased the Homelite Gas Pressure Washer for $299.00 and a bottle of Zep Pressure Washing Concentrate
This is what the concrete on the front stoop looked like due to years of neglect…a major build up of dirt and grime..not very welcoming!
I loved the fact that the pressure washer was packaged almost fully assembled.
The remaining items in the box were the hose, wand, handle, bottle of oil, nozzles, warranty information and directions.
There’s also an instruction sheet adhered to the back of the pressure washer for easy reference.
It was easy to attach the handle and hose
as well as to attach the household garden hose.
It comes with a bottle of oil and a paper funnel, which I didn’t see until after I used this Dollar store plastic funnel which we keep in the garage.
After all hoses are attached, fill tank with gasoline,
Turn switch to “on”, slide to “choke” and pull the starter cord, then push switch from “choke” to “run”. It was an easy starter pull unlike the older models.
The nozzles are color coded and there’s a reference card attached to the handle of pressure washer.
Always choose the correct nozzle for the job, check reference card for determination.
Once I got the hang of it, I used it to clean the brick wall as well.
My only complaint was the cheap plastic covering the hose, it ripped. I am not sure how because I don’t remember dragging it across the concrete.
