fantastic !

Pros: 3 sprayer tips, honda engine, very easy to crank, simpson is a good name
Cons: none
Model Number: Simpson Mega Shot V 3000
"i have really been impressed with this pressure washer.... very powerful and easy to start with the Honday engine. The engine started the very first time i pulled the rope.... no need to say anymore about that... its a Honda.
This is the first pressure washer that i expect to really last several years, unlike the cheaper one that you use a year or so and have to throw away. If you are even a little interested in getting a new pressure washer, look no further and buy this one NOW, before they run out.

Superb performance and value

Model Number: MSV3000
"Great performance and value for price paid.
Light weight unit; very easy-starting Honda engine whose gas consumption is miniscule. Highly recommend this pressure washer to anyone needing such a machine.

Poor customer service

"I waited about 3 weeks for it to arrive - I had high-hopes since this is an American product.
I used it for a couple of months. The starter would occassionally require dozens for pulls, sometimes refusing to start entirely. Waiting half an hour was the solution.
The handle sticker indicating the model was incorrect. It was the correct frame and motor, but Simpson didn't see the problem shipping a 3000psi washer with a 2600psi advertising (try lowering resell value).
The intake hose wouldn't pull chemicals. After a frustrating experience finding someone at Simpson to speak to, I was told the default wand configuration wouldn't allow suction. I had to remove a piece per their support and the suction worked.
The wand broke when it fell off the house while I working up there. It took hours to find someone at Simpson to support consumer products. After about 4 days of calls, they eventually agreed to send me a replacement wand. They said expect 3 more weeks (seems their standard shipping delay), but it never arrived. I finally gave up and let Costco sort it out by returning it.
Per Simpson, they don't have anyone in place to handle these products if you have a problem. They were trying to service me though a John Deer dealer in their building - really weird!"

Started and operated just fine

Pros: power of honda engine
Model Number: Mega shot V3000
"Only one use at this point so can't really give the product a "five star rating" but usually the first use tells much of the story. Just put together a few simple components, added oil and fuel and started up on the second pull. Did a nice job on a filthy driveway. No leaks, no squeaks, no problems."

I wish I could use it...

Model Number: V-3000
"I received my brand new Simpson Pressure Washer and with great anticipation I open the box to start the set up process. To my dismay the handle that attaches to the body of the machine had a broken weld that connected the name plate across the handle. Also the left tire was flat. No worries I thought I'll call Costco and ask for a replacement washer. The answer was, "No", but we'll call Simpson for you. They did and Simpson has told me they will send a replacement Handle and wheel assembly. Now I must wait another week or so. To bad products like this spoil Costco's reputation. I hope the washer works when I receive the parts and spend the time to fix the brand new machine. Possibly more to follow..."

Look elsewhere

Pros: powerful
Cons: hose split, seized up on me
"I bought this online and when the first one arrived it arrived broken in the box. OK not the fault of the maker, probably happened in shipping maybe? I returned it to store and ordered another one. Second one came and I used it for about one month. During that time period the hose split and so I had to get a new hose for it. Then a little later the entire pressure washer stopped working altogether. It just quit and wouldn't start again like it seized up. No idea what happened so I returned it and bought one from in-store at Costco and haven't had a problem with it at all."

Wasting your time bring to the register

Model Number: which one
"Bought two at the same time. Before I had had a chance to return the first one second started to break down. Granted I use a pressure washer everyday . If you want a pressure washer in your toolshed for looks This might be the one, if you are planing to use one, Look else where."
