How to find out the best pressure washer meets your needs?

When it comes to a pressure washer, it’s worth taking time to take into consideration what you’re going to clean, how hard the cleaning job is, and how frequently you will use the machine. The following expert guide will support you in picking out the Image Best rated pressure washer to buy based on your needs.

What type of pressure washer are you looking for?

A light-duty model

Light-duty units would be perfect for tackling small cleaning surfaces of delicately soiled areas, small vehicles (bike or car), gardens, and patio furniture. Those tasks typically require a pressure washer which could be a hand-carried model or compact trolley-style model with low-powered motor (<1600W), low-pressured water (<90-bar), as well as low flow rates.

The low cost and light-duty pressure washer usually comes with a fixed nozzle, meaning that you cannot change the water pressure during operation.


A medium-duty model

Medium-duty pressure washers, which are ideal for some home cleaning tasks, such as garden paved areas and decking or cars, usually combine some features of high-end and cheaper counterparts. They are also designed to deliver fair cleaning capability and ease of use.

Typical, these models come with a medium-powered motor falling into the range of 1,600W – 2,000W, medium water pressure with around 100-130 bar, and medium flow rates. They are also built with relatively heavier and larger wheels, five to six meters of hose, and an onboard place to store accessories.

You can find several medium models in the market, such as Bosch UniversalAquatak 125, Garden Nilfisk C 135.1-6i P X-TRA, AR Annovi Reverberi Blue Clean, AR383 1,900 PSI Electric Pressure Washer, and more.

A heavy-duty model

Heavy-duty models are usually one of the top-quality pressure washers in this industry. They are well constructed to tackle all cleaning tasks and for a long lifetime of use.

These models always come with a high-powered motor to provide a ground-breaking PSI/GPM combination, allowing for a remarkably powerful jet of water to clean even the dirtiest and grimiest outdoor items instantly.

The noise from the motor is typically less than other machines. They generally are used for cleaning heavy equipment, brick walls, tennis courts, building entrances, and extensive concrete areas, or any stubborn terrains. However, heavy-duty machines usually tend to be too powerful for home use. So, you should know how to use them in the right way to avoid harming your cleaning surfaces.

You can easily find a wide range of best-rated power washers of this category, for example, Simpson PowerShot 3,200 PSI 2.8 GPM, Generac 7122 SpeedWash 3200 PSI 2.7 GPM, or PowerBoss 3300 Max PSI 2.5GPM Pressure Washer.

Even though both electric and gas pressure washers are meant for domestic use, it is the electric models that tend to be the Best home pressure washer Image with relatively more straightforward cleaning tasks. Whereas, the gas-powered models are made for professional, large-scale jobs.

Compared to their gas-powered counterparts, electric pressure washers are commonly more lightweight, more friendly for the environment, quieter, and sufficient for the residential cleaning. However, it requires to be close to a power outlet.

On the other hand, gas-powered pressure washers set you free from a power outlet and provide a powerful stream of water to wash all. However, they could be too powerful for general cleaning tasks.

A final thought

It’s always good to listen to the recommendation from the people around you when looking for a new pressure washer. However, the one that is suitable for them might not fit your requirements.

By thinking about your demands and how frequently you will use the machine, you can find your most suitable pressure washer. Besides the information we are pointing out here, you should consider some additional features like, for instance, the motor, detergent tank, wheels, attachments, hose length, brush attachments, and more.
