No problems

Bought 3 years ago use it annually on the driveway for about 6 hours each year. No problems so far. It's heavy but if you fully extend the reel you don't need to move it much. Show details

Plastic Problems

Yes the machine is heavy and Yes it does the work but:
The wheels are plastic and broke
The hose winder is plastic and broke
This is why Bunnings seem to have discontinued it.
Ryobi should stick to power tools which is what made me trust the brand.
Go Karcher Show details

Okay value machine but quality issues

For the price paid on the unit it does its job based on the amount of pressure it spits out and weight of the unit. However, experienced similar quality issues like other users where my unit had a faulty switch so the power didn't turn on after a few months of use. Swapped it out at Bunnings after they asked if I used it for commercial purposes. But the most annoying aspect of the unit is the kink in the hose when trying to reel it in no matter how you try. Ended up just looping around the unit. Show details

good machine for the price

Its a great machine for the price and much better than my previous Karchers which kept breaking down. I see some other neg comments in these reviews about build quality.,.. really... go and pay another $250 for a higher end pressure washer... its not worth it ... this one is fine and a great buy for the price.. and the warrentee WOW.... yu wont get that from the more expensive brands... totally worth it Show details

Not worth buying

In summary when it worked it worked well..it however has long periods of low pressure..not sure why...cheap quality hose with a split developed within spool end. Extremely poor quality and build..winding handle continually falling off, and mounts for power cord a waste of time. Show details

Unreliable

Bought from Bunnings. Worked well for about 2hrs, then lost all pressure, same as other owner listed. There appears to be some inherent problem. I can't see this machine listed in Bunnings anymore, which may be indicative of an issue? Am getting a replacement but not confident of long term reliability.

Started great, BUT replaced within 2 months

Bought it following advice from local Bunnings, as it has 4 year "replacement" warranty, heaps of power and very competitive $299 vs other well known brands at more more money.

1. Within first few uses, the O-ring in the 'gun' split, no drama go to Bunnings and buy part and sorted

2. It's bit top heavy, fell over and handle for hose reel snaps, let's say that's my fault so I fix that

3. This weekend the wheel comes off, no idea how to fix it (suspect weight of machine which is substantial is too much for tiny screw to hold).

Hats off to Bunnings who replaced it, though my local one didn't stock anymore had to go to another location.
