Black and Decker PW1600
1 Star Review   By member BobMcQ - Dec 26, 2009   

Weakness: Plastic water inlet

I bought the PW1600 pressure washer for simple cleaning around the house. After about 2 months water started leaking from the bottom of the unit. I took the unit apart and found a plastic water inlet had broken. I looked the part up on-line and was told to contact the local B&D service center to get the part. I called the service center and was told they could not order the part. The man at the service center gave me the B&D 1-800 number and told me to contact them. Same result. B&D said the part was not available. Never again will I purchase anything with the name Black and Decker on it. Sad, an American icon and you can not get a simple part from them.

DOA
1 Star Review   By member fdoamerica - Mar 23, 2008   

Strengths: Looks nice

Weakness: Dead.. It seems this model is prone to failure. Read up on this model on other sites.. like Amazon before buying.

I was impressed by my friend's B&D Compact Electric Pressure Washer PW1300 and thought I would get one of my own. When this B&D PW1600 went on sale I bought one. After 45 min. of assembly I was ready to go... well kinda. The machine ran for all of 6 minutes and then quit. Nada. Tried everything but really this machine was DOA, now I have to go through the hassle of taking it in to B&D and getting it repaired. The sad part is that my girlfriend was there at the plug in, and I told her, "Watch out baby, this machine is powerful"... after it coughed and died she looked at me, and laughing said, "Oh, big bad powerful machine, eh, mister macho?!" Skip this model... for around the home - lite work consider the PW1300 (I wish I had).

The B&D PW1600 Works well
4 Star Review   By member mikeywl - Feb 9, 2008   

Strengths: Works pretty good.

Weakness: None.

This is my first pressure washer; I've never owned one before. From what I can tell, it works pretty well, and cleans what I need it to clean. I bought it to clean some spots off my driveway and to keep the exterior of my home clean. It's easy to use too.

Black & Decker 1,600 PSI Electric Pressure Washer #PW1600
5 Star Review   By member My3girlz - Jan 25, 2008   

Strengths: power

It pays to buy name brands. I had previously purchased a no name brand power washer with 1350 psi and was unhappy before I even tried it out. It just seemed cheap altogether and didn't perform well after testing, so back to the store it went! I then purchased this one and I could tell it was a better built product as I was putting it together. Very simple and straighforward. After turning it on, I was more impressed by it superb cleaning power. It cleaned the grime off of my mower like it had been steam cleaned. I was very happy with its ease of use and the power out of this compact machine.
