This pressure washer was easy to assemble and easy to use. It starts easy and you can control the flow with different tips. There is a trigger nozzle to start and stop water flow. I think I read on some units you have to shut the motor off. That didn't seem to be a problem with this one. It has a soap tank for mixing soap. Overall it seems to perform well. I wish it had a better manual. It needs a valve to shut off the soap when you want to rinse. You are supposed to run fresh water through and empty the pump before storage. I drained out the remaining soap first. There should be an easier way. I am a novice user so maybe I'm just not doing everything right.
