Pressure Washer Recall! Read this before you use yours!

Outdoor living space, patio and chairs with barbeque in a serene summer setting with green grass and blue skies.
  • Be careful with that pressure washer — because of a manufacturing defect, the hose connector could break off and cause serious injuries.
  • That’s according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, which has announced the recall of more than 1 million pressure washers made by Greenworks and Powerworks. The defective machines were sold by Lowe’s, Amazon and other stores between January 2017 and February 2021, per the commission.
  • The recall includes Greenworks washer models 1500 through 1800, and Powerworks models 1700 through 1800, the commission reports. Officials are advising people to contact the Hong Kong Sun Rise Trading Company for a replacement: 833-211-9185.
