Ivation Electric Pressure Washer Review
When quality matters, a lot of people say that Ivation is the way to go. Especially if you are talking about a new pressure washer option. These pressure washers are able to tackle a lot of cleaning projects and they have features that most people enjoy having access to. To see more about what is available, read our full review below.
Features of the Ivation Electric Pressure Washer
The Ivation is an electric pressure washer that produces up to 2200 PSI using its 1800W/14.5-amp motor. This is a lot of power for you to enjoy having at your fingertips. However, with all that power, you may be surprised to know that it doesn’t use a lot of water. It only uses 1.8 GPM so you can save water and get the job done in half the time.
All parts are included with this machine including a hose, nozzle, turbo wand, and five interchangeable nozzles to ensure that you have access to both high and low-pressure sprays. This means that the day you get it, you can start using it to clean up all of your most soiled areas.
In fact, this machine is extremely easy to use. Setup takes only about 30-seconds and you can change attachments in even less time. This is because all connectors are copper and it joins hose to nozzle quickly.
This power washing system features an automatic total stop system to protect your family, pets, and itself. This means that when you release the trigger the TSS kicks in and puts it into idle mode. It will not put a strain on the pump or any other part of the machine.
The 2200 PSI means that it is strong enough to clean decks, patios, and driveways, but it also can remove dirt from vehicles without you having to worry about stripping paint while you go. Just a few of the things it can remove are oil, rust, mildew, grease, and deeply ground in dirt.
In the event that you do not have a garden hose close by, this pressure washer can still function using a self-suctioning feature. This means that it can suck up water from a pool, a bucket, or any other standing area of water.
This machine is very lightweight so that you can move it where you want to go. It weighs only 25 pounds and measures in at 12.5 x 12 x 32 inches. Two wheels ensure that it will roll easily and the weight allows you to load it up and take it to other areas where you can also enjoy cleaning up.
Ivation’s machine has a detergent dispenser to ensure that deep cleaning is a true possibility. They also provide you with a full 1-year warranty from the date of purchase to ensure that it is going to clean well enough for you to be totally satisfied by its performance. If you have an issue with your machine, Ivation will either send you replacement parts or a new machine.
Buyer’s Feedback on the Ivation
With a 4.1-star rating, it may seem as though this pressure washer is questionable. However, as you read through review after review of satisfied people, you will notice that most everyone feels this is a great machine to own. It can clean away dirt from the dirtiest decks and it can be used on even the more delicate wood types as long as you are content to go at it easily. Most owners love how quiet it is to operate, they love the TSS system, and that it is maintenance free. One of the reasons they love the TSS is because it enables them to take a break from washing and then go back to it without having to restart the system. You simply squeeze the trigger again and get back to it. Some owners say that at 1.8 GPM, they do not have to worry about the draw on their well and pump, which is especially helpful for people in the country where droughts may be an issue. Most all owners also say that their machine arrived quickly, was well packaged, and perfect for what they had in mind for it to do.
There are some users who say that it stopped working once it arrived, but most all of them experienced a problem during the warranty period. This means that they were able to get it repaired with ease, but they still opted to give it lower ratings. There are also a few people who say that it is slow to clean very dirty areas. This could be because they are using the wrong tip for the task at hand or the surface area is extremely dirty. In either case, most people shouldn’t have to worry about the potential issues because there are so many other people that have had no issues with the way it cleans.
Our Opinion of the Ivation Power Washer
In our opinion, this is a very powerful electric pressure washer. We like the turbo wand that is included with the purchase, we like that it is such an easy machine to use, and we like virtually everything else about it. It has just enough PSI to make it useful for a variety of cleaning endeavors, but not so much that you have to worry about cleaning everything with it. We like that it has a warranty and even that most defects seem to show up during the warranty period. The self-suctioning action that it has is also something that we enjoy. It frees up a lot of different options for the owner and means that you do not have to have a garden hose nearby to get the job done. This is ideal for fenced in yards where the water supply may be limited. For us, this feature alone makes it worth considering since there are not many like it available.
