The Best Pressure Washer for 2020

A pressure washer is an important household tool, which lets you use pressurized water to do a wide spectrum of cleaning tasks, from washing your vehicle or boat, to maintaining your home territory. Washers can work both on electricity, and on petrol. Both versions have their own cons and pros. Machines also sport different pumps, which push out different amounts of water at different levels of pressure.

These machines are very popular, and thus are made by many brands of household appliances. Therefore, it is not too easy to find the perfect model – there are so many of them on the market. However we have put together a list of five best models for their money, and you can be sure any of them will do its job with perfection.

The manufacturer intends the machine for many diverse purposes. It can be used to clean virtually anything – boats, vehicles of all sorts, garden machinery and walkways. The device uses detergent to make the cleaning more thorough – there are two large tanks inside it where 0.9 L of your choice cleaner are stored.

There are five different nozzles shipped with this one – 4 angled ones and one for soap. It comes with a long reinforced hose – 25 feet long, and a 4-foot long hose for detergent.

The water sprays only when the trigger is pushed down, however that is not a problem, because of the trigger’s ergonomic shape. You will not get too tired holding it down.

Pros:

  • Very easy to start, even for a weak person
  • Voluminous gas tank makes for long work without refilling
  • Very high maximum water pressure

Cons:

  • The hose is tough, but it is also very stiff. It does not roll up or bend easily, so it will be hard to store

The electric motor allows the device to generate up to 2000 psi and move up to 2.2 gallons a minute. You can use two button to regulate the pressure up and down. The long 25 foot hose rolls onto a reel, which is built into the machine. The lowest pressure setting is so soft, that it will work well for cleaning woodwork and other delicate surfaces.

The nozzle is multi-purposed, and if you rotate it, it will change the spraying style. The motor is an improvement over most models, because it is an induction motor. Better yet, it is water-cooled, so its lifetime is almost five times longer.

The light, ergonomic trigger puts no stress on the hands at all, and you can therefore use it for a long time without tiring.

The unit is put together in Italy.

Pros:

  • Packs a lot of power for its comparatively little size
  • Multifunctional nozzle, which can be adjusted to do different things
  • Stylish screen on the handle, which displays the current settings

Cons:

  • Made mostly of plastic. Use of plastic at this price and quality level seems wrong.
