The Campbell Hausfeld pressure washer machine has a rich history. Campbell Hausfeld the manufacturer of this pressure washer range began operations in 1836 with the production of horsedrawn wagons and agricultural equipment. It later moved into the manufacturer of consumer and professional pressure washers. It is in the league of its peers such as Northstar pressure washer manufacturer Northenend Tools and Equipment and Simpson pressure washer manufacturer Simpson Cleaning Systems.
Campbell Hausfeld pressure washers have a sound market command with many of their pressure washer models used in thousands of homes across the United States and some countries across the world. The company has categorized its washers into three main classes determined by the pressure of the washer measured in PSI (pressure per square inch) and the amount of water that is released by the washer under pressure per minute measured in GPM ( gallons per minute).
The first category is that of Standard Duty pressure washers ranging from 1300 psi to 2400psi. Typically these washers have an electric engine and wobble pump with a few in the up-end of this category particularly those with 1800/2400 psi with a gasoline powered engine. You may consider a standard duty Campbell Hausfeld pressure washer if you intend to clean your riding mower, grill, bicycle, boat, car and a 10ft x 20ft deck. Washers in this category are not recommended for exterior foundations and eaves and walls.
Next is the Serious Duty category which includes pressure washers of between 2000psi and 3000psi. These washers are more powerful as shown by the psi measurements and run on OHC, OHV and premium gasoline engines with an axial pump. The higher end washers in this category i.e. those with 3000 psi are not recommended for some jobs that the standard duty models do such as cleaning your mower, grill and bicycle. This is a precautionary measure. The pressure it releases is to high it might damage these items for example it might gouge the wood. A Campbell Hausfeld pressure washer in this category would be a good buy for your eaves and walls taking only about 3 hours 20 minutes to complete the washing job.
The final and highest category is the Extreme Duty category. In this class you have pressure washers with between 2000psi and 3500psi running on OHV and premium gas engine with camshaft pump. The are extremely powerful washers by Campbell Hausfeld pressure washer standards with the higher end washers of 3500psi taking only 2 hours 15 minutes to do your house exterior such as eaves and walls. These are average times which are subject to your individual experience in using the washers and so on.

They are extremely suitable for around the home duties and some relatively light jobsite duties.

Overall this pressure washer is an Amazon best seller in the context of being in the top 4 best sellers in the home improvement category a category with hundreds of other pressure washers. This washer produces steam which works wonders in disinfecting and degreasing certain surfaces and objects around the home.
We give this washer an overall rating of a near four out of a possible five stars. It works very well in a home setting but has apparently carried with it key disappointments which we think shouldn't be for a washer. However, some individuals with industrial cleaning businesses such as heavy painting have used it as a support pressure washer to heavier more powerful pressure cleaners on jobsites. This is particularly due to the fact that it does not gouge the wood as other stronger washers would do. Some users have however complained of having trouble with their order of the washer. For example the 2009 model does not take extension codes without being damaged. Other users have also complained that their washer of this model failed to build up pressure after an initial 30 hour use.
