Sears Informative - Pressure Washer - 6.5 hp gas pressure washer
LAGRANGE, GEORGIA -- I purchased the 6.5hp version of this washer last October, 2003 to refinish a deck. Worked great for 10 to 15 hours usage but then bolts that hold water side of pump sheared off. Took in to local Sears where I purchased and they repaired under warranty, no problem. Since the deck was almost finished at the first failure there has not been much usage on the repaired pump. Today, December 3rd 2004, I used to wash out carport and again pump failed, this time on the piston side. Back to the store. This time I'm told the one year warranty is out and the first pump repair was only warranted for 90 days. Now I'm left with a pile of junk. Obviously the pump design is faulty. Would not buy this unit again!! Have checked and their more recent washers use this same pump design.
