“Waste of money”

Written on: 20/04/2013 by leedsu (1 review written)

Bought this pressure washer 2yrs ago and did not need to use it until recently. Tried to clean the partio but the metal ferrule on the hose outlet was split and sprayed water everywhere. Complained to Homebase but totally unhelpfull, even though it had never been used. On my way to the tip with it now, but it pains me as I thought £130 was a lot of money to throw away… Read Full Review

“RAC HP094 What Rubbish”

Written on: 11/08/2012 by colsy1950 (1 review written)

Bought this pressure washer last year from Homebase and used it once before storing carefully away for use this year. I have just prepared the pressure washer for use because I planned to clean the patio furniture. The pressure washer worked for a maximum of 5 seconds and then nothing. I have checked the fuse and electrical / water connections etc to ensure that evrything is as it should be. I decided that the washer was at fault and started to look for a reset button but none found. I then… Read Full Review

3X1945's Response to colsy1950's Review

Written on: 09/09/2012

An absolute waste of money! A Dreadful Product! Could not recommend this product. Our first purchase was faulty so we returned it immediately. The replacement functioned normally for two or three occasions & we stored it away until this year. Just connected it to hose & large quantities of water leak from inside the housing from the machine itself!. Instruction manual does not tell you how to open casing and therefore cure of serious leak is prevented. We were influenced by "RAC" name which is prominent and needing to buy a pressure washer that could wash down cars and our patio, had confidence in the supposed endorsement! I'm going to return this to Homebase today! AVOID AT ANY PRICE!!!

Same thing has just happened to us. Got pressure washer out to clean the patio for the summer and cuts out after five seconds. My husband has spent almost an hour trying to get it to work. I decided to look up the product and amazed to see all these negative reports. We are dumping it!

Written on: 10/01/2011

Purchased as a present for me just over a year ago I though I had received a decent product but after very little use the motor has just stopped.

The manual gives no real clue as to why this might be.

The help desk had nobody available and suggested referral to their bew site which again does not give any clues.

At first I thought it was me but now I am convinced that it is the product so it is in my view an unsafe present to give to somebody and any purchasers should be cautious about the… Read Full Review

“RAC Pressure Washer - HP094 ”

Written on: 06/06/2010 by oldred47 (2 reviews written)

RAC Pressure Washer - HP094

I bought one of these last year, and used it too clean off outdoor furniture with reasonably good results. Did the same this year, and then decided to clean the patio. After cleaning a few slabs, with reasonable results, the sound of the motor changed, and it started to smoke, and all pressure was lost. It had approximately 10 hours use in total.

I contacted Argos, as it was 1 week out of warranty. they informed me that I would have to obtain an independent report… Read Full Review

Join the queue of discontented purchasers of the infamous CHALLENGE pressure washer. I purchased mine last year used it 5 times in 3 months and lance extension burst. I am left with a useless machine because I cant buy a replacement which would probably cost a FIVER to replace. Its a long way to CHINA so cant be bothered going back to manufacturer. My bargain turned out to be as good as a chocolate fireguard. PS Argos customer services as good as the afore mentioned fireguard.

Written on: 26/05/2009

I paid £59.00 for this RAC HP094 pressure washer in Argos. I was already returning a faulty Challenge Extreme pressure washer. I went for the RAC machine because I felt that the RAC wouldn't put thier name to a bad product. It looked good, sturdy build, good weight. This machine felt like a well built tool. Came with two attachments for jet washing, one adjustable spray lance and one turbo lance for really heavy dirt blasting. It had two brush attachments, one of which was a rotory brush. So a… Read Full Review
