What is Big Red Blaster?
The television commercial states that it is a new nozzle with the precision and intensity of a professional grade fire hose nozzle. It promises that with just a twist it can turn from a mist sprayer to water your garden to jet blast the mold and mildew off the walls or caked mud from the car.
Big Red Blaster REVIEW
Not as advertised – Alex who bought Big Red Blaster complained in his review that he feels misled by the advertisements as the pressure is not as much as they claim. The power from the spray of the hose was poor too. Even in the wide spray mode water drizzled out and he had to go back to his old nozzle. He thinks he has bought cheaper and better products at local hardware stores and this was a waste of his money.
It’s not a power washer – Pete who used Big Red Blaster exposed in his review that no way it’s a pressure washer that you see on TV. They advertise it like a $350 gas powered pressure washer but it is nowhere close to it. According to him the idea works for about two minutes and then the problems begin. Turning the nozzle to the left turns water on, and it’s off when you turn it to right. He did that but it broke right off; such is the poor quality of this washer. He feels while the makers are guilty of false advertising, we need to be careful when buying these products too. He was using a brass nozzle that looked like Dramm 12380 Heavy-Duty Brass Adjustable Hose Nozzle and it worked for 25 years. He wishes you could get that kind of quality today.
It’s a piece of crap – Robert who reviewed Big Red Blaster revealed in his review that it is a flimsy product and the nozzle breaks quickly. While he was okay with the pressure it gave when he noticed the broken parts he realized that inside the aluminum and rubber exterior there is plastic, which connects threaded base to the nozzle. It is of very poor quality.
No pressure at all – Alan who used Big Red Blaster complained in his review that he got hardly any pressure while washing his car. Another problem was when he turned it all the way left the water wouldn’t stop running. It leaked from everywhere, even in the middle, which was a bit unexpected. Since he has been a fireman for years he knows that it doesn’t use the fire nozzle technology as it claims. He was also annoyed that he had to buy an adaptor to attach to his flexible hose. Unfortunately there are no instructions and the company seems to be based out of the country.
Overpriced for a bad product – Thomas who bought Big Red Blaster exposed in his review that firstly you can use it only if you have small hands. He gave it a good go but it broke before he knew it. He was surprised that the pressure washer is priced so high. Some of the issues he mentioned include the fact that the knob that controls the volume of water jammed. When he took it apart he couldn’t manage to get it back to work. The washer (o-ring) also got bound up and he thinks the problem is execution of design with poor quality of components.
Our Verdict – DO NOT BUY BIG RED BLASTER NOZZLE. PERIOD.
Big Red Blaster is National Express Inc’s answer to Telebrands Mighty Blaster (Built by Viatek). Both the products suck and are Chinese junk thrust down our throats.
There are tons of quality, branded, tried and tested metal nozzle sprayers available in the market which you can really call “Fireman’s Nozzle”. Big Red Blaster is not at all the ONLY high intensity sprayer out there. We recommend any of these following true “Fireman’s Nozzles”:
- Gardenite Garden Hose Nozzle with 10 Spray Settings
- Hose Nozzle by Jet2Spray with 6 Spray Settings
- Nelson 50503 High-Pressure Rated Fireman’s Style Industrial Spray Nozzle.
