Q: By looking at the photos of the Yamaha PW3028, it appears that the soap dispenser is siphoned at the outlet side of the pump instead of the inlet side. Am I correct in assuming then that this model does not run detergents through the pump assembly?
by Garry from Michigan on September 08, 2014

A: You are correct, even though the unit comes with an on-board detergent tank it acts more like a down stream injector, where the detergent does not run through the pressure washer pump. This does allow you to use a wider variety of detergents, but you need to be careful still as whatever chemical you decide on will come in contact with the seal and o-rings of your hose and spray gun assembly.

Q: I have this Yamaha pressure washer and it's great. I need to (gently) pressure wash mildew off of my log house. and I would prefer to wash the second story and eves with my feet on the ground rather from a ladder. So I assume I need an extension wand. The peak of the eves is about 20-24 feet off the ground. I also need a longer hose than what came with the washer. It came with a braided hose, which seems to be of much better quality that what I see for sale in the box stores. Which extension wand and hose would you recommend for this Yahama presure washer given this application (and with the correct connectors)? I prefer to get something that is good quality and will last. Thanks...
by Jay from West Virginia on June 06, 2014

A: I understand that you don't want to score the logs or strip off the finish. Since you don't need to get high pressure right up to the surface, you may want to think about this2nd Story Soap & Rinse Nozzle Kit.

If you want to use a chemical (like bleach or Oxy) to kill the mildew, a Long Range Foamer would also do the trick without having to run the chemical through your pump and destroy it.

Your pressure washer has quick connect hoses, so a good choice would be the BE 18' Telescoping Wand. It comes with a quick connect adaptor, and at 18 feet you won't have to be Hercules to use it effectively. (The 24' wands flex a lot under pressure, and you'd better have a strong back!)

If you're going to use the wand for long periods you may want to think about adding a Telescoping Wand Belt to take some of the stress off your arms.

Q: I see this model has two options for Soap: Jet and Fan. So safe to assume it has a high pressure soap spray that most other models do not?
by Dave from North Dakota on May 26, 2014

A: It does have a zero degree soap jet. However, it is not at the full 3000 PSI. It will be higher PSI than the low Pressure Soap Fan, but it will not be as high as the regular 20 degree setting.
by Mike, Product Expert
Q: Hi Mike,
I'm looking at the Yamaha PW3028 and I have two questions before I buy. I have a well and my water pressure is just OK. Will low-ish pressure be an issue for this model? Also, is the hose flexible? A previous power washer I had was very frustrating due to a rigid and difficult to maneuver hose. Thanks.

by Alan Preston from Pennsylvania on May 11, 2014

A: You will need to provide a MIN of 40 PSI and 2.8 GPM from your supply hose. The Hose on this unit is rubber and much more flexible than the 1/4" PVC plastic hose provided with many of its competitors. In my opinion this is one of the best units available in this price range. It uses a CAT pump which is the best pump available today. I would not hesitate to recommend this item.

Yamaha is one of the leading manufacturers of commercial outdoor power equipment today. This model has been designed for the Do It Yourself homeowner who wants a top of the line pressure washer, or for someone just getting started with their own pressure washing company and wants a great quality machine.

The Yamaha engine and the CAT commercial-grade pump makes this machine very reliable and long lasting.

All of these components wrapped into one heavy duty, compact frame makes this... more

Love It!
Love my PW3028! I shopped around for different power washers in the 3000 psi/30 gpm size range. I have used and owned in the past some of the cheaper units from Home Depot, Lowes, etc and while they did the job, I had to work on them occasionally. Wands were cheap, spray tips wear out quickly, an occasional pump or engine issue, frame/chassis are cheap and easily damaged. So I decided to look further into the better brands, John Deere, Yamaha, Karcher, and a few other commercial grade... more

We would like to point out that if you live close enough to a big box store to get a Yamaha, you will pay tax on your purchase and have to have a vehicle large enough to haul it home. We can save time, money, and effort for a lot of folks!

Do not buy this product! Yamaha has always made great products, so why not pay the extra $$ and get a long lasting quality machine? Wrong!

The soaper is never working corectly from not drawing the soap in to pushing water into the soaper. Every time we use it, it is a fight to get it to work correctly. Yamaha customer service on this problem is useless. The Yamaha factory rep, not the dealer but the yamaha rep= useless.
soaper = junk
pull cord= broken 3 times
spray wand= leaks
Cons: Difficult To Use, Unreliable, Durability

I didn't see where you had purchased your pressure washer from us, so I'm sorry- I don't know if you're still covered by the Factory Warranty, and we can't take your case to our Yamaha rep for help. If you purchased your unit from us but under another name please email us at so we can ask our rep to step in and assist you.

This unit comes with a 1 year Commercial use and 3 year Consumer use Factory Warranty. Provided you are within the warranty period, you may want to use the Yamaha Power Products Service Locator to find Factory Authorized Service in your area.

You may want to call around to see who has the shortest turn-around time. Please be sure to bring a copy of your invoice with you if you take the unit in for service.

This is a perfect power washer. With the huge muffler and idle down feature, this unit is very quiet. The engine starts on the first pull, and is easy on gas.

The hose, wand, and nozzle are all very good quality. Of course, the CAT pump quality is legendary.

Nothing to not like about this unit.

Has To Be The Best "non Commercial" Machine On The Market!!!
I'm a 27 year old log truck driver on the Oregon Coast. And if you know the Oregon Coast, then you know we get rain and mud! I wash my truck almost every night and let me tell you... This is the machine for the job!!! The Cat pump is 2nd to none! Puts out plenty of pressure and gets the job done quickly!

One of the best features, other than the idle down to save fuel while you're not pumping water, is the 5 different spray settings at the tip of the wand. To be able to go from 800 psi for... more

Best Compact Pressure Washer Money Can Buy
I needed a pressure washer and I looked everywhere to find a special one to to fill my needs.

This is the ultimate machine for cleaning decks & concrete. The thing about it, it's quiet and has an adjustable nozzle on the tip of the wand so you don't have to stop it to install a tip every time.

You can choose 800 PSI for light stuff or switch to 25 degree or 45 degree for more pressure; & the Cat pumps are very durable. And, it's pretty good on fuel consumption.

This is my 3rd power washer. This is light years ahead of a cheap one. Started first pull.

You need both hands to hold wand- this has POWER. No tips to change out just turn dial. Quality hose, no junk here. I like that it idles down when not spraying. Runs smooth, does not vibrate around like others. Nice wheels move easy.

You pay for what you get. I just love my new power washer!
Pros: Features, Quiet, Exceeded Expectations, High Quality
Cons: None

This is the best pressure washer I have ever used. There is no vibration in the wand... just plain smooth action. Makes the job easier and a lot less physical.

Buy it... worth the $.

Great Service, Unreliable Pressure Washer
Bought this Pressure Washer based on the 5 star reviews and "Prosumer" grade.

I own a Yamaha motorcycle and have a Yamaha outboard engine on my boat, both are great products and have proven to be very reliable, so figured I couldn't go wrong with a Yamaha Pressure Washer. WRONG!!!

Delivery of the washer went as planned, but the hose was crushed in several places and I was worried the stainless steel braid might be compromised and not hold up to 3000 PSI. PWD arranged to have a... more

Starts easily. Automatic throttle-down works well. Simple assembly... just put on the wheels and attach the hose. Details seem to be well thought out. Instructions are good.

Good Performance So Far. Some Design Flaws.
On/off turn knob is in poor location - easy to bump when pulling starting rope. In fact on my 2nd time using, I accidentally broke the switch when I was trying to start the motor and experienced kickback with the starter rope pulling my hand back and my hand hit the plastic switch.

I notified Yamaha and not only did they refuse to replace the part for free, but I was also told there was no design issue. After I purchased a new switch, before installing, I carefully ground down the end of... more
