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.

I was going to buy the this product today from Bunnings and the sales person told me that you need to dilute the detergent with water before you put it into the machine, and also need to lower down the pressure otherwise it won't come out, same as the issue you have.
