Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works well This product works well, has cut down the time used to clean the patio. I used three tanks of gas to do the job with a nozzel. With this product I used TWO tanks of gas....an obvious saving.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Goos idea if it would work I am on my third one from lowes this week. The first two only lasted two hours and would no longer turn. seems the bearing keeps going out on the spinning nozzel and when the water pressure is applied the center leaks and it won't spin. I will say that when it works the unit does an excellent job.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Inconsistent When the jets spin, it does a terrific job. I've used it less than one hour, and sometimes, not always, when the pressure is applied, the unit won't spin. Coaxing usually gets it to work, and I find that without pressure, the jets spin freely. Do I recommend this product? Not yet. I hope R&D from Briggs will go back to the drawing board and figure out what's wrong.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Right Tool for the Job I was skeptical based on the reviews that I read on this website of ordering this unit. However, I found it to be a joy to work with. I managed to do my entryway sidewalk, my two-car driveway, and since I live on the corner, the sidewalk in the front and partially is on the side in a little under two hours! A couple of tips: one. I found that if you turn the want upside down and use it a little bit like a push broom it works extremely well. I also found that it works a lot better if you use gravity and start from the top of the driveway and push down allowing the water to drain away. The only negative I have besides the cost, is the fact that the unit itself has no methodology for washing away what it has cleaned. Instead I had to disconnect my hose from my power washer and hose off the area twice in order to see what still needed to be treated again. This is not a fault of the unit mind you, but I wish some sort of a small water supply nozzle offshoot could be designed into the unit to allow you to spray the area clearing the debris away. I did find that I was able to pick the unit up a couple of times and allow the water from the unit to wash away some of the area but that methodology is a little bit unwieldy. I purchased this unit along with the quick connect wand ( 33") that is required for this unit and as such found it incredibly easy to assemble.as a side note, I wish the one was just a little bit longer as I am 6'2" and I still had to bend over just a little bit.I just recently finished pressure washing my fence in order to keep warm during that I wore my wetsuit and booties however with this unit you can wear just a regular bathing suit and even flip-flops and be just fine as you will stay mostly dry while completing your task with this unit. I hope the Black & Decker makes a replacement brush head for this unit. I do see that it looks like it's removable and hopefully they'll sell replacement as I can see this wearing down after a few years work. In summary this is an excellent unit and will cut down your time of completion probably in half if not greater. It is also so easy to use I had no trouble convincing myself to do the sidewalks in addition to the driveway.

Surface Cleaner 6178

I see on your web site that there are not replacement parts available, however would you identify the seal so that a replacements can be obtained.

The unit functions well but the lower seal wears and the unit is useless. If Briggs and Straton puts their name on the product they need to provide support. A company of your size should be embarassed to have a product and the best solution you can provide is to return the item to the store for a POSSIBLE exchange.

Do I have to buy another rotating head?

I cleaned 3/4 of my driveway last weekend with your rotating head cleaner and it looks gorgeous. It stalled now and then and stopped rotating, but eventually came back on. I got up this morning to finish the job and the rotating nozzles are not budging. Is the bearing shot, as another user suggests? Is this repairable? Do I just have to buy another and not use it for more than 15 minutes at a time?

Since Briggs and Stratton does not offer replacement parts, please reveal the 3rd-party manufacturer so that I can contact them for replacement parts. My cleaner refuses to spin when water pressure is applied.
