Lately, Walmart has had loads of awesome clearance deals and here's another one on the Karcher K2.360 1600 PSI electric pressure washer. Originally priced as high as $197, it's now on sale for just $97, which is essentially a 51% discount. Shipping is also free.
This Karcher pressure washer is an electric one, which means that you simply need to plug and use. It has 1600 PSI, which according to Walmart's description is 30 times stronger than any regular garden hose. The bayonet trigger gun is also equipped with a child safety lock for those of you with trouble making munchkins running around and it even comes with the following:
- DirtBlaster spray wand
- Vario Power Spray wand (VPS)
- Detergent tank that is built-in
- Car care kit (3 soap pakcs, sponge, brush & rim brush)
Since I don't know anything about pressure washers, I price compared with other stores to see how much these usually go for. At Canadian Tire, the cheapest one I found is the Simoniz 1600 PSI electric pressure washer priced at $149.99. The Simoniz 1700 PSI is also currently on sale for the same price of $149.99 (reg. $249.99) and the Karcher X-Series 1800 PSI one is on sale for $229.99 (reg. $279.99).
One could argue that paying more means the product will last longer but personally, I would totally get the pressure washer at Walmart. The price is just too awesome compared to those that I found at Canadian Tire and ultimately, as long as it gets the job done is all that matters. In fact, it may only have one review at Walmart but it's a 5/5 star one:
I have used it on cars, fences, decks, and patios. It is the best you can get and I have used it for everything even SNOWMAKING surprisingly. For the price its awesome.
To be honest, I had no idea what the reviewer meant by "snowmaking" and so naturally, I Googled it. Turns out it's exactly what it's sounds like, you can make snow using a pressure washer. Mind blown? Yah me too. Obviously, this won't work in the upcoming summer months but come this winter, you could be rolling around in even more snow than we typically get -- yeaaaah baby! Here's a YouTube video of home snow making in case you're interested on how this would work.
