"I have owned this machine for two years. It is truly a professional piece of equipment. It is designed to last for many years to come. It is made in the USA and none of the parts used in this machine is inferior. It can be used efficienly and continously, without concern of failure. I use it weekly to clean Motor Vehicles. I would recommend it. Carl"

"This pressure washer is great because of the adjustable temperature and pressure settings. It is also fuel and energy conservative. With a little soap and the right temperature it takes grease and oil right off dirty engines. I highly recommend this product. Thanks Northern Tool."
