The Best Pressure Washer from freeamfva's blog

Watching years of mildew get blasted off a piece of patio furniture provides a unique form of satisfaction—a feeling attainable only with a pressure washer. After more than 70 hours of research and two weeks using eight pressure washer models to clean cars, outdoor chairs, and more, we found that the best pressure washer for most homeowners is the Ryobi RY142300 2300 PSI Brushless Electric Pressure Washer. All the electric washers we tested cleaned well, but the Ryobi has a durable motor, a longer hose, larger wheels for easier maneuvering, a better-designed cord, and lengthier warranty coverage than the competition.Get more news about high pressure machine,you can vist our website!

We recommend an electric pressure washer for most homeowners since electric models are easier to use and maintain than gas models. (Gas washers are more powerful, but most people don’t need all of that extra force for around-the-house tasks.) The quiet-running brushless induction motor of the Ryobi RY142300 should last for years, and the machine’s heft helps make it particularly hard to tip over, even when you’re forcefully tugging on the hose. Along with its larger wheels and cable, as well as its hose management, this sturdy design makes the RY142300 the easiest to maneuver and use of the washers in our test group. The company’s three-year limited warranty is also the longest we found. The RY142300 usually costs a little more than other pressure washers, but if you plan to use it three or more times a year, it’s the best value.

If the Ryobi RY142300 is not available, we also like the DeWalt DWPW2400 2400 PSI Electric Cold-Water Pressure Washer. In many ways, it’s identical to the Ryobi, similar in its body design, brushless motor, and overall power and usability. The DeWalt also has some advantages over the Ryobi: It comes with two additional nozzles for a wider array of spray options, a detergent tank that is easier to monitor and empty, and wide pneumatic tires, great for moving the pressure washer across bumpy lawns. The major downsides are that the cord wrap is awkward to get to and difficult to use, and the holder for the spray wand is almost entirely ineffective. The DeWalt is typically a little more expensive, too, and since we think the Ryobi’s wheels will be fine for most situations, as will its nozzle selections, we recommend that model first, but we also think anyone getting the DeWalt will be satisfied with its cleaning power.

If you have a smaller budget or plan to use your pressure washer only once or twice a year, we like the Sun Joe SPX3000 Electric Pressure Washer. For about $100 less than the Ryobi RY142300, it cleans about the same, but like most under-$200 models it has a shorter hose, a lower-quality motor, smaller wheels, a shorter warranty, and a design that’s easier to tip over. Compared with the other budget models we tried, it has a wider selection of spray nozzles; it also offers a durable metal spray wand, plus convenient hose and cord storage similar to that of the RY142300.

If you’re short on storage and you don’t mind carrying a pressure washer around, we also like the Ryobi RY1419MTVNM 1900 PSI Electric Pressure Washer. It’s much smaller than the other models we tested and has less oomph, but it can still handle most jobs (they might just take a little longer). Weighing a little over 20 pounds and sporting a top handle, it’s compact enough for you to carry it as you would a duffel bag. It has wheels and an extending handle, like a piece of luggage, but the wheels are small and have trouble managing an uneven lawn (we ended up just carrying it everywhere). This pressure washer has the same long hose as our main pick, too, but it lacks that model’s high-end induction motor and some of the other, finer details.

If you need more power or want to go beyond the reach of an extension cord and you don’t mind maintaining an engine, we recommend a gas washer. The Ryobi RY803001 3000 PSI Honda Pressure Washer cleans roughly twice as quickly as our electric pick, the Ryobi RY142300, and it’s powered by a dependable Honda gas engine. It has many of the same nice features as the RY142300 does, including oversize wheels, a long hose (in this case, 35 feet), good hose storage, ready availability, and a long warranty. The downside: It’s heavier, it’s louder, and it needs fuel, maintenance, and proper storage in the off-season. But if you need to wash a garden shed at the other end of your property, say, or a filthy boat at the end of your driveway, it’ll do the job (if you have a long enough hose).
