Powershot Ps3228 Review
Simpson has been around for many years. They make all kinds and sizes of pressure washers and pressure washer accessories. Big names even use Simpson as an OEM and put their brand name on them. We have been using Simpson pressure washers for about 3 years now and one thing that we can say about them is that they are reliable and get the job done. All Simpson pressure washers start with a rugged welded tube steel frame design that provides years of service. Rugged 10&#8243; pneumatic... more

Cleaning Driveway & Walks
Only took 3 to 4 total hours to clean all of my concrete compared to 8 to 10 hours with my other power washer. I could not believe the difference on how good it worked.

My other washer is a Troybilt on its second pump and is rated at 3000 PSI (AIN'T NO WAY).

The wife could not believe i was done all ready and it was a pleasure to use. 1 complaint is the washer nozzles would not stay in the holders, holes are to large so I have to fix that. Other wise I am very happy with my Simpson.

Pros: High Quality, Price, Exceeded Expectations, I'd Buy It Again

Beware! Bad Pumps
I was happy with this unit for the first year. (Check your reviews for people who have owned them for longer than a few months)

After 1 Year and 9 months the PUMP FAILED. Even though it is advertised as 3 Year Pump - FNH said that the valves are 'wearable parts' and not covered.

SO MUCH FOR THEIR 3 YEAR WARRANTY!

The Honda motor is great - but LOOK FOR A BRAND WITH A BETTER MODEL OF PUMP!

Nunjer,
Factory Warranties cover defects in materials and workmanship- they do not cover wear and tear. If there is a problem with the way an item is built (a bad casting, faulty assembly, etc.) it usually shows up quickly.

In simplest terms, if it moves, it will wear. That means that valves, that move water through the pump at high pressure and a high rate of speed, really are wear and tear items. This would be true no matter what brand of pump is purchased.

Doing the recommended maintenance will deliver the best performance and longest life from a pressure washer pump.

Great Power Washer With Cheap Nozzle Holder
My only complaint with this pressure washer is the design and quality of the nozzle holder. It does have rubber bushing to hold them in place but this system vibrates a lot. Every time I come back to the system after spraying my nozzles are all over the ground and I have already lost one.

Best to keep them in a bag or something because you are likely to lose them if you put them in the holder.
Pros: Price, Reliable
Cons: Nozzle Holder Is Crap

Good Value For The Price
Bought this machine for very large driveway and patio/retaining wall cleaning. When paired with a 50' hose and the whirlybird cleaning attachment, it has done an outstanding job.

Machine was well packed and started right up. One of the wheels wobbled, but the manufacturer replaced it within a week.

Overall, this was good value for the $$$. It performs very well, the Honda engine is great and cleaning performance is outstanding at this price point.

Great Pressure Washer - Very Powerful
Bought about a week ago from TSC as open item, they reduced price by 150.00 and I bought the wand, spray gun, and hose to the missing parts. Got home, read the instructions carefully. Had to get some oil for the pump, it looked a little low and I did not want to take any chances of just running it right away. Also had to get quick attachments for the hose to the pump and the nozzle gun.

Used three times so far for about 3 hours each time, not problems. Honda engine starts up after 1 to 3... more
Pros: Easy To Store, Easy To Use, Fast, High Quality
Cons: Packaging

Money Well Spent
I have not used it a tremendous amount yet but It has not failed me at all. I've used it to wash many vehicles, the garage, and the house prior to painting etc.

As compared to others I have used in the past it doesn't seem to shake as much and move around on its own. The nozzles that are in the handle therefore, will stay put and not rattle out which I've had happen before with other models and then actually lost nozzles before too.

This model is a bit expensive but so far has not let... more

Keeps Getting Worse........
Bought from local big box store and took home to unpack. Sealed box did not contain pressure hose. Called manufacturer and they sent a hose pretty quick.

After first use of a few hours the next time I used the machine the pressure gun did not work. Waiting to see what will break next.
Cons: Low Quality, Unreliable, Packaging, Durability

Michael,
You can give the folks at Simpson a call again, toll free, at 877-362-4271 about the spray gun, but first you may want to check that there is no grit or debris blocking the flow of water by flushing water backward through the gun; and check that the safety lock on the spray gun trigger is in the "Unlocked" position.

Please be sure to have the serial number of your pressure washer handy if you call Simpson- they will probably ask for it.

Not Happy
Hose provided with powerwasher lasted approx., 8 hours of run time before it developed a huge blister and failed. all fittings are not compatible with our local suppliers so we cannot replace hose locally and quickly.

Provide better quality, heavy duty hose.
Pros: Easy To Use, Price, Light Weight, Easy To Store
Cons: Low Quality, Unreliable, Durability

Craig,
Most manufacturers will warranty the hose for the first 30 days after delivery, so you have until tomorrow to call the folks at Simpson, toll free, at 877-362-4271 to tell them about your hose.

Factory Warranty covers defect in materials and workmanship, but it won't cover a hose blow-out if it's the result of the hose kinking and pressure build up causing the failure.
