Q: What is meant by "hand held"? Does the user have to kneel down to clean a pool area with this unit?
by Gerry Gray from Florida on January 14, 2015

A: No, there is a separate attachment that BE sells that allows this to be hand-held. That is not how this comes. There is a quick connect plug on the surface cleaner. You will snap this into the end of your lance where the colored spray tips usually go.
by Brian, Product Expert

Q: Can this unit be used with an AR Blue Clean AR610 electric pressure washer?
by Ryan from Washington on October 27, 2014

A: This unit attaches with a 1/4" quick connect attachment. Since your unit uses a vario spray wand, you would need to also purchase a new wand for this unit to attach to. I have attached the wand that would need to be purchased as well.

Q: I have a (2700 PSI / 2.5 GPM / 7HP) pressure washer and I am looking for a surface cleaner that works properly but not extremely expensive. I have just tried the Briggs & Stratton model. It worked fine for about 10 seconds out of the box and then would only spin very slow. I took it apart and cleaned everything and tried again with same results. Is there a better quality product I should try or did I just get a bad B&S cleaner? What should I do?
by Jason from Alabama on July 13, 2014

A: The BE is a much heavier duty unit than the Briggs unit. This unit is the best unit on the consumer line in the industry today. it is perfect for your PSI and GPM and I would not hesitate to recommend this item for your pressure washer.
by Brian, Product Expert

Q: will this surface cleaner work properly on a 3100 psi 2.5 gallon per min pressure washer.
by G Framstead from Florida on February 13, 2014

A: Yes! As long as your unit uses colored spray tips this unit will quick connect into the end of your lance. I definitely recommend this surface cleaner with your pressure washer.

Good Value
I needed something to clean my very large mahogany deck and didn't like the lines left when using the wand.

This was an inexpensive item compared to some of the other items and cut the cleaning time to a few hours vs two days.

I would recommend this to anyone who does not need to use it on a daily basis.
Pros: Easy To Use, Quiet, Price, Easy To Store

Worthwhile Gadget!
I purchased this item to powerwash our large driveway and patio based on prior reviews. Even though it was a little expensive, it was well worth it!

Cleaning was much faster and smoother than just using the wand attachments that came with the power washer. Water tends to pond while using the attachment but the cement looked great once dry.
Pros: Easy To Use, Durable, High Quality, I'd Buy It Again
Cons: Expensive

I Had My Doubts!
We have a home in Florida, nestled comfortably under the shade of two old Live Oak trees. Laden with leaves and hanging moss, the recipe for stains, algae and mold are ripe. Add to that, we are not there full time and you can imagine the condition of the sidewalk and driveway, all unsealed concrete.

We have a 2600 Honda pressure washer, and to wand the area takes the better part of 4 hours. I looked at this unit many times and went back and forth on whether or not to purchase it. It just... more

This Is How It's Supposed To Be
After two tries with the Briggs & Stratton surface cleaner that is supposed to work with my Briggs & Stratton pressure washer, I finally got smart and paid $20 more for this device. It works extremely well.

The metal body is very durable and the cleaning pattern is great. Be sure to take your time using the surface cleaner because if you rush it doesn't clean as well, but the time you save from conventional spraying gives you plenty of extra time to do the job.

Great Product For Small Jobs
Works great... Builds up a suction after a few moments of using it.. Not a big deal... Just lift a little and allow the built up water to run out... Other than that... A great buy for the money..

"Website is wonderful!! The surface cleaner is good, but I find it doesn't slide over surface of driveway as easily as other brands. I have used it about 4 times now. It works good, just seems to drag the surface too much for me."

Sure Saves Time
Cuts the time by about 2/3's to do my driveway, sidewalks, and a large flagstone patio. The only problem is the 1/2" or so along the sides. They need to be done without the flat surface head.

Time Saver
Purchased this product originally to help with the cleaning of a large deck. When it arrived I cleaned a small test area on my driveway to get an idea on how well this works. I would recommend getting a wand extension (which I did after cleaning my test section) to help from having to bend over while maneuvering the surface cleaner. After I purchased the wand extension, I was going to clean some more just to test the products. Ended up cleaning my entire drive way and would have done the... more
Pros: Easy To Use, Easy To Store, Exceeded Expectations, Fast
Cons: Needed A Wand Extension To Make Operating The Product Easier

Great Tool
I think this is the best tool I have purchase in a long time. It was 4 times faster at cleaning my driveway than the one spray nozzle. My driveway is over 200' long and 24' wide. I would recommend it to anybody.

This item was rather expensive, but it works great and reduced driveway cleaning to a fraction of the time it would have taken without it.
