EZ Kleen Hot water pressure washers

So im sure a lot of you have saw these washers in the auction sales by the dozen. So does anyone have one and how are they preforming? I know they are knock off but sometimes they work well. My princess auto washer is getting up there and the pump is making noises... Am wondering if I should pull the trigger on one of these? What do you think?

I bought one at an online auction last fall for half the price princess auto wants for one haven't used it a lot but it has worked well so far. They are shipped dry so make sure you put oil in the engine and the pump drive. They also don't come with a battery. I figured for the price I couldn't go wrong if it lasts at least a few years. There is a service and parts depot in red deer for them I got a hose extension from them.

Bought one 2 years ago. It works fine except every now and then the switch that kicks the burner on won't work. $25 for a new switch and it works again. Lots of pressure and heat.

I only know of 2 people that bought one and neither one worked right. IIRC, my brother just uses his as a cold water washer (the heat never did work right) and the other friend of mine took his right back to the next sale and bought a Delco. I have a Landa and would highly recommend one but they are a bit pricey.

You know that for 3000 you could probably buy a karcher hot water washer diesel fired 3000psi . Then you have something we bought our first about 15 years ago and still have it -- though i put a water heater core in it a few years back . Still running without any problems .And my dad can even use it without screwing anything up .

X2

But I think I am getting ripped off I paid a lot more for my switch, do you have a source for an after market switch?

Couple of my favorite quotes.

Pumps and Pressure on 51st in Saskatoon. It's a pressure switch that has a plastic nub on it. The nub wears down and won't open the burner valve so you can't get hot water.

“It's unwise to pay too much, but it's worse to pay too little. When
you pay too much, you lose a little money - that's all. When you pay
too little, you sometimes lose everything, because the thing you
bought was incapable of doing the thing it was bought to do. The
common law of business balance prohibits paying a little and getting a
lot - it can't be done. If you deal with the lowest bidder, it is well
to add something for the risk you run, and if you do that you will
have enough to pay for something better.”
