" What a beast! We purchased the pressure washer to clean harden sulfur off of molten sulfur railcars. It has made the task almost a joy. The sulfur comes flying off. The time required to complete the task is a tenth of what it was before we purchased this pressure washer. I would recommend this pressure washer to anyone who has a tough cleaning job. "

" I wash pig barns with it, and it does a great job. I used to have a 7000 psi 10 gallon a minute washer and this one is just as powerful. I priced washers like this all over the country and northern tools had the best price. It is definately the way to go with honda's brand new 24 horse engine. "

Very Impressed

" We purchased this unit for commercial use to prep parking lots for striping. We needed a big unit that could be used for hours without stopping. It also needed to be able to remove layers of old peeling/flaking paint. This unit coupled with a zero degree turbo nozzle will cut a hole into the concrete. We are blown away by the sheer power of this unit. Another great benefit is the massive Honda engine, coupled with a supreme pump!
We will be adding another one of these units to our fleet shortly! Great product and HIGHLY recommended!

Pressure Washer 5000 PSI

from Tampa, Florida
" This pressure washer is absolutely the best available on the market!
It performance is beyond compare. I can do almost anything with it from
cleaning the house to triming the edge border on the sidewalk and fence
line and including digging holes for fence post with no work involved.
The customer service in the Tampa store is excellent due to the leadership
of Robert.

I like it.

" You get a lot for your money with this one. I got it two months back and no issues. So far its one of the best units I have owned. Its cleaning power helps me be more efficient. I wash about 52 trucks and trailers a weekend, so it runs about 8hrs nonstop those days. The only thing I see that could be better is the same with every washer I have. The chemical mixer sprays to much water. Other wise I Like It. "

Great Pressure Washer

" I have had cheaper pressure washers and always had trouble with them. I bought this one (hoping I would get what I paid for) and I did. I use this pressure washer on my beach house which is three stories tall. This unit is very fuel effecient and defintely provides more than enough pressure to get the job done, and done right. I have used it in applications from my beach house to my boat to farm machinery. This pressure washer just keeps on getting it, and getting the job done right. "
