Excell Pressure Washer - Model VR2522

justjeffbApril 23, 2013

Hello!
I've had the Excell Power Washer (Model # VR2522) for about three years now. For the first two and a half years, it ran beautifully. Then, out of the blue, the cast assembly of the radial ring assembly shattered. The mechanic we took it to attempted to weld the assembly (which I now realize was the wrong thing to do!) and it lasted through about 30 minutes of power washing. The assembly then shattered again. To date, we have over $100.00 in repairs and the unit is still inoperable. To have the complete washer pump replaced is likely to cost much more than I should be putting into this power washer. It has a great Honda motor on it, though. Is my best bet to just sell the unit as is and purchasing a new power washer? I'm really not sure which way to go. Any help you can give me is appreciated.
Thank you.
Jeff B.

I would at least try craigslist searching for pressure washers or pressure washer parts. I would think many people have failed engines and you could swap pumps. This is only useful if you live near a metropolatin area. Perhaps someone knows what other units have similar pumps?
