          No, I do not recommend this product.
          I like it; I just don't love it.
          I've got a lot of experience with both gas and electric pressure washers.
          Briggs is known for their small gas engines and has been in the outdoor power equipment business for a long time. This S2000 electric boasts an impressive 2,000 PSI at 1.2 gallons per minute. I found that this is not a whole lot of GPM for that pressure, likely because a larger volume pump would simply cost more to have the in the unit. Good for lightweight cleaning around the home.
          Pros: Easy to Store
          Cons: Limited Features, lakes water power versus psi

          Unit came is well packed boxes and putting it together was a breeze. Item is very well constructed in my opinion for the price.
          The unit is easy to use but temperature is tricky to maintain as it is the charcoal version. This is not a unit issue...just how charcoal works, along with my inexperience.
          Overall the smoker is very good and smokes things well. It is fairly easy to clean and maintain as well.
          Pros: Distributes Heat Evenly, Durable, Easy to Assemble, Easy to Clean, Large Cooking Space, Sturdy

          This is a great product, I had grown tired of the cheap stuff sold at the "big Box" stores that only lasted for a couple of months before weeds starting growing through it.
          This product seems to really hold up. I have not had any issues so far, other than running out of it. I will be ordering some more. No more cheap stuff, you get what you pay for. Install it correctly & ya wont be sorry!!!
          Pros: Durable, Easy to Install, Functionality, Great Quality, Strong

          It is doing a great job and meeting all of my expectations.
          I have used it twice after a (3) day rain. There was already some water and leaves on the tarp and the leaves were sunk to the bottom. I pumped the water all of the way down and skimmed the leaves off of the tarp. I am awaiting spring and the opening of the pool. Can't wait. Well worth the money!

          My advice would be to keep your expectations from soaring too high with this medium-capacity nicely designed portable AC from Honeywell.
          The performance of the system will be implicitly influenced by the size of the room and ambient temperature and humidity. The set of options on the LCD display with feather touch-controls is impressive. The functions can be regulated from anywhere across the room with a full-function remote control. On the scale of 1-10, I would rate this 8.0, if installed in a room sizing around 350 sq.ft.
          I also found that the hot air exhaust tubing was not too flexible and a bit too short, also, on humid days, you might need a drain pan for the Air Conditioning Read More

          Previously used, brought back to new condition by the manufacturer, or previous owner.
          Usually a repair of "scratch or Dent" - minor mechanical flaws, to restore to freshness of appearance or good condition

          Answer: 
          The wheels are installed when the trimmer is assembled and there was a steel axle which slid through the openings in the wheel. The are no ball bearings, however, the wheel was manufactured with a heavy duty plastic hub for the axle to slip thru, and seems strong enough to prevent wear, cracking, etc...
