  15 Questions
Q: What is the length of the hose from the washer tot he wand?
by Dan on February 19, 2012

A: This machine comes with a 20 ft high pressure hose to go from the machine to the trigger gun and spray wand.

The hose can be extended by 25 ft if you purchased the CH hose model PW1021. I am posting a link below to this item on our site:

Q: other sites (3) show this model to have an induction motor. You show it to have a universal motor. Please clarify as I'm trying to narrow my choice by induction motor and price.
by Anthony on February 10, 2012

A: This machine is definitely powered by a universal motor. This information can be found in the owner's manual that we have linked under the specs tab for this machine.
by Mike, Product Expert
Q: How many nozzles does this come with and does it clean mortar and paint.
by Anonymous on October 08, 2011

A: This machine comes with only one adjustable fan spray wand. There are NOT multiple tips for this machine. In regards to the cleaning capability of this machine, yes it will do a general cleaning of brick and painted surfaces. However, this machine is not powerful enough to strip paint from those surfaces.
by Mike, Product Expert
Q: Does the wand have a locking station so you don't have to continually squeeze?

I just ordered the CH 1800 psi

by Bill Salters from Mississippi on October 02, 2011

A: No it does not. There are not going to be any trigger guns available with a locking trigger. This would be considered a safety hazard and manufacturers will not produce such an item due to liability reasons.

All trigger guns for all pressure washers are designed in the same way, without that type of feature.
by Mike, Product Expert
Q: Do I need a hose to use this or is it portable, with the water housed on the unit itself?
by Brad from California on September 21, 2011

A: This machine does need a water source provided thru a garden hose. This unit does NOT have it's own water tank on board.
by Mike, Product Expert
Q: does this item have a wobble pump or a different unit? Does it have an induction motor?
by Linda from New York on June 10, 2011

A: This unit would have a universal motor and a wobble pump.

Thanks,

Q: I'm looking to purchase this pressure washer to clean my paved driveway, would this model work for that?
by Liz from New York on May 25, 2011

A: This would work, but it would take you quite a while. You may also have some issues if trying to remove some heavy stains.

Thanks,

Pressure Washers Direct
by Mike, Product Expert
Q: Does this unit come with 2 spray wands. What is turbo wand?
by Phil from Washington on May 22, 2011

A: This unit is going to come with a trigger gun and two lance connections. One will be a high pressure and low pressure lance. The other would be the turbo/rotary nozzle. This is going to be used for tough stains and gives a high concentrated burst of water and it is will spin to make cleaning easier.

Thanks,

Q: could I use this system to wash screens on my lanai? ch1800 campbell hausfeld
by Mary from Florida on May 08, 2011

A: Yes, this would be fine for doing what you would like. I would just suggest starting the unit on low pressure and then bringing the pressure up as needed.

Thanks,

Q: I just placed my order for the CH1800 and i was wondering is this good for washing cars? Its the main reason im buying it for.
And would you recomment any accessories for what im going to be using it for?

by Sarkis M Semerdjian from California on April 28, 2011

A: Campbell Hausfeld is one of the largest manufacturers of pressure washers and they make very good quality pressure washers. For your use, this pressure washer would work perfectly and you will be very satisfied.

As for any accessories that could be used, we carry a rotating brush head model PW1011 that would be compatible with the pressure washer you purchased. This accessory could be used on all surfaces but particulary works great on rims/tires or on areas of the vehicle such as the grill to remove stubborn bug stains.

I am posting a link below to the rotating brush that I am referring to:

by Mike, Product Expert
Q: Can the CH1800 use a rotating brush head?
by Rich from New York on April 24, 2011

A: Yes you can definitely use a rotating brush head with this model pressure washer. I would recommend that you purchase a Campbell Hausfeld brand rotating brush to ensure compatibility.

I am posting a link below to a Campbell Hausfeld rotating brush that we carrry:

Q: Does this washer come with two wands. One that rotates and the other a direct spray.
by John from Virginia on April 20, 2011

A: Yes, this model pressure washer comes with an adjustable spray wand and a rotary turbo nozzle wand.
by Mike, Product Expert
Q: Hi Bill I own one of your 1800 pressure washers and it worked great when I put it away for the winter , but when I went to use it this spring I could not get any high pressure from it can you suggest somthing it is 3 yrs old Rick
by Rick Voci from Massachusetts on April 07, 2011

A: More than likely there was water left in the pump when you put it away for storage and the water froze. This would cause the water to expand and damage the seals inside the pump. If this is what happened, you will have to replace the pressure washer. There is a product called "pump saver/pump guard" that can be used on pumps to prevent this from happening.

I am posting a link to the pump saver product I am referring to:

Q: Do you ship this item to Australia? If so, how much would shipping be?
by Jacque on March 31, 2011

A: Unfortunately we do not ship products outside of the U.S. Sorry, I would be unable to quote you on shipping this product to Australia.
by Mike, Product Expert
Q: Does thismodel have built in detergent tanks, I don't want a separarte hand held bottle.
by Jack L. Mayberry from California on March 30, 2011

A: No this model does not have a detergent tank onboard. This unit comes with a detergent bottle for soap application. All of the Campbell Hausfeld electric models that we carry come with a detergent bottle instead of a detergent tank.

We chose this unit for our "Good" slot because it packs a lot of features into a good price.

The ease of using this machine along with it's on-board tool storage makes this model a great choice for the average homeowner. The PW1825 has an instant start/stop feature that helps protect the motor and pump from burning out and prolongs the overall life of the machine.

Considering the price and reliability of this unit, it's a great entry-level electric pressure washer.

Grandma Has A New Toy!
As a 67 yr old single, I try to maintain as much of my home as I can. This washer makes cleaning all the moss and grit off the stone walls, decks and driveway so easy.

I love it and all my neighbors are envious of my nice clean front yard in fact two (30 yr old) gals asked if I was for hire!!

The only mistake I made was not using the correct nozzle at first and also blew out the garden hose (not strong enough to carry the pressure). I also had a hard time getting the plastic hose... more

"I knew when I ordered this pressure washer it was on back order but to my surprise, I had it within 10 days. So I opened it up, assembled it with the directions given and had to re-assemble it again (there are 2 screw sizes and the directions don't specify which to use) but I figured it out and got it running the same day. My cleaner was delivered 6 hrs later."

Specs Are Better Than Observed Performance; Also Leaks
I bought this as a replacement for my 10 year old Karcher 1400psi/1.5gpm unit, which has started its death knell with a leak in the high pressure end. Even now, the Karcher can clean old fence boards and concrete as good as this CH PW1825, and in the same amount of time. The Karcher's swirl tip has a tighter pattern than this one, which is likely the reason, but the wands aren't compatible.

In spite of reading reviews of this model where customers complained of leaking hose connections, I... more

Brass Fitting Solved The Problem
I needed to power wash the siding and patio; I was ready to rent but decided to buy.

I wanted one that was easy to use, cost-wise and best for me as a first time user. I read reviews etc. on many different makes and models online and had an idea which one I wanted, but was still confused.

I finally checked Power Washers Direct and decided to buy this Campbell Hausfeld. I followed set-up instructions that were a little confusing but got it working. Like other reviewers said- the water... more

Plastic Connector Should Be Brass
You make a great little power washer except for the cheap plastic hook-up that you supply. THROW IT AWAY AND SUPPLY A BRASS HOOK-UP. Your future customers will love you for it and you can also take back the bonus you gave the design guy who said that the plastic hose hook-up would do just as good.

I would immediately get rid of the plastic for BRASS and demote the design engineer to handle the trash.

Other than the aforementioned, GREAT PRODUCT.
Pros: Price, Light Weight, Quiet, Exceeded Expectations
Cons: The Cheap Plastic For The Garden Hose Hook-up Should Be Brass

John,
The competition for small electric pressure washers is fierce- folks want the lowest price, and unfortunately even a couple dollars added to a price point can make a real difference.

You may want to add a brass quick connect set to the hose connection; it will help save wear and tear on the plastic threads.

If you'd like to contact the design team at Campbell Hausfeld you can call 800-330-0712 with your feedback...

John,
Where the garden hose attaches to the pressure washer is always an area of concern. Several of the reviews for this unit talk about various ways to protect the connection and ways to help stop leaking. One of the reviews is very in-depth and was forwarded to the folks at Campbell for their consideration.

I hope that helps? Since you didn't say you had a problem, but here's a quick review just in case: be sure to use a new garden hose gasket (about a quarter at a hardware store); teflon pipe tape if it's leaking; brass or plastic quick connect set if you're scraping your knuckles or worried about stripping the threads. Keep the screen between the hose & pressure washer clean of debris.

Great Value For The Money
Had borrowed 2 different electric PW from friends. Were not satisfied with either of them, hard to attach hose, leaked and cord storage awkward.

We chose this model because of price and by reading the reviews. We were not disappointed. The PW was quieter, hose was so easy I attached it without tools. No leaking and got the job done quickly.

Thanks!

Very Good $ Value
I replaced a Husky 1800 with this PW. The new one does a better job, is easier to use, and I can use the hose and wands from my Husky- all in all a good $ value.

After reading other reviews I tossed the plastic water connection gizmo and used the brass quick connect that I had bought at the hardware store for $5, rather than have the leak problems others had mentioned.

Leaky!!
Bought for husband for Father's Day gift but it has been leaking from the start. Haven't had time yet to take a good look at it and find out where the leak is.
Pros: Price, Easy To Store
Cons: Low Quality
Mike, the Pressure Washer Expert
Product Expert
Monica,
If the leak is between your garden hose and the pressure washer, try replacing the gasket inside the garden hose end, and using teflon pipe tape (under $1 at any hardware or grocery store) around the threads of the garden hose.

If the leak is where the high pressure hose connects, run your finger around the inside of the connector to make sure there is no grit or debris caught in the threads.

If the leak is coming from the unit itself, please call the folks at Campbell Hausfeld, toll free, at 800-330-0712 for Warranty repair or replacement. Please be sure to have the serial number of your pressure washer handy when you call them.
