    That would be one of the very few times I have heard of a mfg underating their product

    Please don't take this the wrong way or feel that I am trying to speak in an ill tone regarding your newly aquired PW.

    You made the below comment in an earlier post

    Even my little crappy electric Karcher was capable of this and if you had a pressure washer that was not capable of rinsing a car down I would either assume that:

    a) It was a defective unit
    b) it was VERY underated

    The PW (cam spray) I have is rated at 2.0 gpm and it is head and shoulders above the electric Karchers I previously had... I just find it hard to believe that any mfg would underate their PW and also that a unit that is built as solidly, and has as many solid reviews as the cam spray would have less GPM than the AR unit you purchased

    Do I doubt the AR unit you have is a good unit = No
    Do I doubt it performs well for the money spent - No
    Do I doubt that it works good for you =No
    Do I doubt that it pushes out more than 1.5 gpm = Yes

    It is very possible that the snap on and B&d were defective somehow and the hd overrated . im just saying out of the ones i tried the AR was a big difference . Either way its well worth the money and has enough power and gpm to get any job done .

    Bump. Does anyone know where you can get the little suitcase Karchers? Nobody local carries, them and I was hoping to have the ability to return it in case it goes bad..
