Greenworks & Powerworks Pressure Washer Recall Accident Lawsuit

An extremely popular brand of pressure washers has been recalled after injuring dozens of users. Some of the recalled pressure washer accidents resulted in injured consumers visiting the hospital for their injuries after the pressure washer accident.

On April 7, 2021, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) announced the recall of over one million defective pressure washers.

It was reported that the manufacturer of Greenworks and Powerworks pressure washers, Hongkong Sun Rise, has received 15 reports of the pressure washer spray gun connector breaking.

If the connector to the pressure washer breaks, it could allow the hose and other parts of the connector to become dislodged when under pressure. This could result in a serious accident.

The defective pressure washers have already resulted in at least 13 reports of injuries, including 7 of which required medical treatment for post-concussion, broken bones, and/or injuries to the eyes and mouth.

The pressure washers recalled in this action by the CPSC were sold at Lowe’s, amazon.com, and other online retailers throughout the United States.

List of Recalled Pressure Washers

The pressure washer recall involves the Greenworks brand 2000 psi plastic pressure washer spray gun included in:  the Greenworks brand 2000 psi Plastic Gun Accessory kit, Greenworks brand Pressure Washer models ranging from 1500 -1800 psi, and certain Powerworks brand Pressure Washer models ranging from 1700-1800 psi.  The model number is printed on the back of the pressure washer unit, near the top.
