You won't be disappointed
I've been looking at the PW3100 for quite awhile and checking out on-line reviews. I knew when they went on sale I would buy one and did just that last weekend. I also used my Lowes card and got another 5% knocked off.
Unboxing and setup was quick and easy. The setup instructions were easy to follow and quite good. I had a cheaper power washer that worked good for many years but after using the new PW3100 I couldn't believe how much better it was. I pay extra for good tools and this is no exception. After assembly I added oil and fuel then hooked up the water hose. This thing started right up on the second pull. It was only about 36 degrees outside and it ran beautifully. Although it seemed a bit cold blooded and had to use the choke between starts. Power is exceptional and really don't know why anyone would spend the extra money on the PW3300 with more psi... The long 40ft hose is nice to get around the car but since it was cold out I had trouble keeping the hose uncoiled. Love the power, the big gas tank and the way it looks. It was suppose to get below freezing that night so I wheeled it to my basement since I didn't have antifreeze for the pump. Actually, I would rather keep it in the basement anyway and not take the chance. I'm ready for Spring so I can put it through the paces.

I got a lemon
Right out of the package it the hose did not have the right end on it, so i had to go buy aftermarket parts just to get it to work! Then after using it about 4 times it started blowing carbon all over a new concrete floor!

WOW! Powerful and loaded with great features...
This is my third power washer in 11 years. By far, it is the easiest to use, the most powerful, and the four wheel configuration makes it very portable, and easy to move around. It took me all of 20 minutes to assemble out of the box. The small wheels were a challenge to tighten, as I didn't have an open end 19MM wrench, and my Crescent wrench didn't fit in the space. Most of the controls are easy to access, and it starts first pull, EVERY TIME!. My only comment on Ergonomics, is the hose hanger is on the wrong side, and the hose sometimes gets into the back wheels. The fuel take is huge, I used the washer for 6 hours, only using a little more than half the fuel! The quick connects on both ends of the spray hose are nice to have, the supply hose connection is easy to access. I also have a Husqvarna lawn mower, and a Husqvarna gas trimmer, and buying a Husqvarna power washer was almost a foregone conclusion when I went into Lowe's last week. When it was on sale ($100 off), it made it an easy decision.

Only used it for a day - but used it hard.
My durability rating really bears no weight I've only owned the product for a day, however I am VERY impressed. Easy to use, love the large gas tank - used it for 4-1/2 hours and still had plenty of gas. The power is excellent, it starts easily, and I LOVE the 4-wheels, I have a lot of concrete and a lot of it is hilly, it makes moving it from point A to B very easy. So far, it's an A+ just like all the other Husqvarna equipment I own. Bought mine at Lowe's -

My New Beast !
There is no job this creature can't handle. 15 minutes to clean top to bottom my 28x30 detatched garage. Deck & home are next on the list, and now I won't be crawling on the ground to clean my mower deck. Have been waiting over a year to purchase this equipment, and it finally went on sale @ $100.00 off @ Lowes. Sorry fellow patrons @ Lowes for the scream of enthusiasism I let out when I saw the sale price, but kudos to the sale reps for promp service upon hearing what equated to a Tarzan Yell ! Still impressed with all my Husqvarna tools, and now this new addition continues to make home care more enjoyable!!!

I bought this pressure washer in order to start a small side business. So far it has performed flawlessly. It has much more power than my old washer did. I love have 4 wheels, including the 2 oversized rear wheels. It makes moving around job sites much easier. It has helped me become profitable quickly by having minimal overhead. Will be recommending it to everyone!

PW3100 New Product
I purchased this PW3100 at a Lowe's Home Improvement store as a previously owned and repaired unit. Apparently the water pump had been clogged-Lowe's cleaned the pump and set it outside for resale at a reduced price. The machine worked great the first two times I used it then the pump quit building pressure again. Since there was no warranty on the machine I removed the pump and disassembled the water transfer valve and inspected it-I blew it out with compressed air-lightly lubricated the rubber o-rings and washers-reassembled the valve and pump. No real problems were found. It worked great all day after that repair. I have had to do this routine two more times since I purchased it with good results each time but it seems to have "worn in" if you will since I have not had to do this proceedure the last five times I have used the washer. I do not know if a new washer would have this same concern or if it took that many cleanings to get some very fine particles out of the valve. I have always had very good luck with Husqvarna equipment and though they do not actually build the pumps for this washer, they have a standard of quality for components used in thier equipment. That being the case I put my faith in Husqvarna and choose to believe the previous owner probably used unfiltered well water in a rural area that had a high mineral content and it took several cleanings to get it all out. Just a theory of mine but possible. Other than that the washer is great, am satisfied for the price I paid for the unit.
