Pros & Cons
The Powerworks 51102, 1700PSI. 1.4GPM quite induction motor electric pressure washer is a well designed machine with enough power for washing decks, patios, driveways, cars, fences etc, at home. This compact pressure washer includes 35-foot power cord with GFCI and a 25-foot high pressure PVC/plastic hose (1/4 inch diameter) and hose reel, along with 2 built in soap tanks. The fold up handle and rear wheels make this unit easy to move around, use and store. The induction motor is surprisingly quiet and the low center of gravity prevents tipping over of the machine when in use. This Powerworks 51102 power washer also features leak-free Brass fitting for hose connection, different spray nozzles and plastic spray gun with quick connect wand.
However, some user reviews mention that the pressure hose is proprietary in this machine and it does not work with generic hoses. A few users complain about recessed water hose connection.
Overall, the Powerworks 51102 1700 PSI Electric Pressure Washer 1.4GPM with Quiet Induction Motor is a highly rated and well recommended pressure washer for home use.
