King Brute Kb3028 Heated Pressure Washer Ė Review
We do a lot of pressure reviews here at Tools In Action but this is our first heated unit that we have reviewed. For the homeowner this is crazy overkill so we took it out on the job with the Pros. We tried to think of the harshest environment we could, turns out it is acid washing. In the Chicago suburbs we have the Fox River, it is like a big sewer that people swim and tube in. Everything drains into the Fox River, when you put your hand in you cannot see it. When boats stay in this water... more

This Thing Is A Beast
I bought this hot water pressure washer because I own a restaurant, and every season we take apart the Frialators and equipment and power wash them.

I can't believe how much time the King Brute has saved us. I have only had it for a couple weeks but so far I could not be happier...

Thanks.

Worst Operators Manual
I bought this unit because the price caught my attention. You really do get what you pay for with this product. After buying this unit, I realized I should have payed the extra $1,000 and bought one that is worth it.

I have been trying to contact a representative from Simpson for about 3 weeks and have yet to hear back from them. The manuals are ridiculous! One of the manuals says to service the pump after so long of using it, the only manual that has the maintenance schedule says nothing... more

Alternator Belt For Hot Water
I've owned my King Brute for almost 5 years and haven't been able to keep a belt on for a full wash. Everything else with the machine works great but it is aggravating to have the machine in the shop more than on the job.

Bought another unit to keep work going and haven't used the King Brute for 3 years now due to belts breaking and service shops not able to fix the product. If Simpson could get the belt problem with these machines rectified it would be worth the money.

I hate I had to... more

Josh,
Simpson has been refining their King Brute pressure washer. The old model KB3030 was discontinued in October 2013, and is replaced by Model KB3028.

Perfect For The Toughest Jobs
If you are looking for maximum performance for the toughest cleaning assignments, the King Brute is perfect for you.
This hot water pressure washer does not compromise on power or performance and is designed for long hours of hard work. The robust four wheel chassis make it a snap to maneuver around the job-site.

Powerful Briggs & Stratton Intek 1100 Series OHV engine powers the CAT industrial triplex pump via a direct drive system, delivering streamline power and performance. An... more

Shotty Pressure Washer
I have the Simpson King Brute and my pump lasted 6 months and the motor lasted 6 1/2 months, they did not cover either of the parts on the warranty.

I had to pay for the new parts out of my own pocket. Would not recommend this pressure washer for anyone, bad experience all the way around.

Blake,
Briggs makes some of the best engines in the industry today. Normally, if it is not covered under warranty, they will give you the reason. Did you properly lubricate the engine and pump? Lack of oil for both item's will cause them to fail and seize and would not be covered under warranty. If this was not the case, give me a call directly at 800-710-7499. I can reach out to the service center you brought it to, and find out why the warranty coverage was denied.

Blake,
Blake first and foremost thank you for your initial purchase of our Simpson King Brute. Under normal warranty circumstances we would be more than happy to warranty your product. Unfortunately we did not deny your warranty...both the engine and pump manufacture did. With that said we would like to help. Please contact Zac Dawson at zdawson@fna-group.com and he would be more than happy to see what can be done.

Thank you

Best Regards,

FNA Group
