Husky 3000 PSI Gas Pressure Washer
This summer I purchased the Husky 3000 PSI, 2.5 GPM, Axial Cam Pump, Pressure Washer to use around my house for cleaning our decks, porches, railings and miscellaneous yard care. I purchased the pressure washer from The Home Depot for $399.
Husky Pressure Washer Features
According to the manufacturer this gas powered pressure washer offers the following features:
- Honda GCV190 187cc OHC engine
- Maintenance free brass axial cam pump
- Custom trigger gun with soft-touch overmold
- On-board nozzle, gun, wand, and detergent storage
I’ve used lots of pressure washers over the years from simple electric pressure washers to large commercial gas powered washers. I wanted to purchase a pressure washer that could tackle large and small jobs around our house. That’s why I purchased a gas powered model.
My only requirements were to find a gas powered model under $500 with good reviews. After reading many different pressure washer reviews I ended up buying the Husky Model HU80432.
I’ve been VERY pleased with this gas powered pressure washer. One of the biggest reasons I chose this pressure washer was the motor. This pressure washer comes with a Honda motor and my experience with Honda motors has been nothing short of amazing. Honda makes incredible small engines that last forever and run really well.
Ease of Operation
The Husky Pressure Washer is really easy to use. The Honda motor starts with one easy pull every single time! In assembly directions were easy to follow and it only took about 15 minutes to set up. The operating manual is also easy to understand and it’s a breeze to operate the pressure washer.
The Husky pressure washers offers plenty of power. As you can see in the photos above this pressure washer had no problem stripping away a thick layer of mold and grime from our deck. Our deck is on the north side of the house and it gets a really nasty layer of mold on it each year. The pressure washer also has no trouble cleaning mold and grime from our vinyl railings and siding. Best of all the selection of nozzle tips makes it easy to get a spray pattern that’s strong enough for the application without damaging the substrate.
I’m very pleased with this gas powered pressure washer. The only thing I’d change is a longer hose. I’m sure I can purchase a longer one and I just may do that in the future. Other than that I’m very pleased with this purchase and recommend the Husky Pressure Washer to anyone that wants a quality gas powered pressure washer to use around their home.
