I am thinking of getting this Multimedia File Viewing and Clickable Links are available for Registered Members only!!  You need to Login or Register for use around the home. I will use it mainly to wash dust off the siding, vehicles, and lawn furniture. what are your opinions?

Dave, I have seen a lot of Sun Joe outdoor products but I haven't used any.
I have an older Karcher with what looks to be similar specs and it works well around the house.
They can be noisy but they get the job done.

Not familiar with this one either but I can tell you more pressure doesnít mean better. Practice on something thatís not valuable first to adjust the fanning of the spray tip. Look at your practice piece the next day to make sure you donít see your marks from the fanning.
I didnít do this and next day looked at my siding at back of house and saw plenty of marks going left to right. I readjusted and did over again hoping to blend in, it did and I was happy.

Buck,
I have vinyl siding, so no nails to deal with. i do plan on testing first on the back side of the house.

Ed,
not a big fan of HF's power tools. I got 2 of my dad's power drills he got from HF while cleaning out dad's shop. the one in the unopened box did not work at all and the other bogged down while drilling a ľ" hole in a pine 2x4. a friend bought a HF pancake compressor. motor would pop the built in circuit breaker after 3 minutes running. took it back and got another. did same thing. i have bought cheap bar clamps from them and they work okay. also bought a couple of assorted packs of o-rings and electrical connectors, no problems with them. just seems to be power tools that i have trouble with.

Just thought I would share, HF is cheap, Karcher is a bit more expensive and the Sun Koe is somewhere in the middle.

I've also have my karcher for well over 10 years, not a ton of use but it works fine. Also parts availability is not a problem if I ever need them.
