I've had the one from harbor freight for about 6 months now. No issues and it works pretty well for the money. I use Adam's foam cannon with it and even at the lower pressure rating it makes plenty of suds.

x3 for the Amazon one linked, works really great, even used it for my driveway and siding, which I really didn't think would work all that well.

I bought the Greenworks 2000 psi electric power washer from Lowe's for $170 3 yrs ago. Still going strong.

Had this one for well over a year. I use it for everything and never had any problems with it. Works great with a foam cannon! Absolutely no complaints and for the price you can't beat it. My neighbor and my cousin went and got the same one after seeing how well it performed.

What about the soap used in the pressure washer?
Do you need to buy soap made for the pressure washer or are you free to use your favorite car soap?

I use Adams Ultra foam. You will need to get a foam cannon to get that thick sticky foam

I tried to kill my harbor freight pressure washer when it was still under warranty... I used it to pressure wash and fully detail several disgusting 4x4 longbed crew cab trucks from front to back and probably have over 100 hours on it? No issues so far. It paid for itself in the first day.
