Best power washers

Published: ·Updated:

When it comes to buying a power washer, you are typically looking for ease of use combined with power. Power in almost all pressure washers is defined as PSI (pounds per square inch).

The options below are washers that we think are easy to use an manipulate whether you are cleaning the driveway or washing off the siding of your house.

The key thing is to buy something you thing you could comfortably use for an hour or two while getting the job done.

Generally speaking, the electric pressure washers will be much lighter and more versatile while the gas pressure washers will have a bit higher PSI and be easier to just fill-up and go.

  1. Ryobi 2,000 PSI 1.2 GPM Electric Pressure

    The Ryobi 2000 PSI pressure washer combines the best of what you'd want in a pressure washer. The unit comes in at a light, easy to carry weight while packing enough punch to have 2000 psi.

    This level of PSI is even to get stubborn stains off of decking, siding, and cement. If you go with other Ryobi models, you typically will get under 2000 PSI and have some issues getting harder stains out.

    This model includes an easy-to-configure nozzle for various situations. And the batteries work with other Ryobi models.

    If you are open to an electric power washer, this unit is a great option.

  2. Troy-Bilt 2700 PSI, 2.1 GPM Gas Pressure Washer

    If you aren't open to an electric power washer, the Troy-Bilt 2700 PSI washer is probably for you.

    This power washer comes with a reliable Briggs and Stratton engine and has been a staple in the market for some time. You can expect this power washer to be a work horse for years to come. 

    The machine also comes with a nice folding storage body for easy stowing while not in use.

  3. Sun Joe 2030 MAX PSI 1.76 GPM 14.5 Amp Electric Pressure

    The Sun Joe pressure washer is a light-weight unit meant to be used around residential houses. It comes with a sleek design and maxes out around 2030 PSI. The pressure washer should run for about 30 minutes before needing a break.

    The unit isn't going to pack the punch that a traditional gas powered machine will. However, it's likely more than enough for the average home ow]her.

  4. Wen 2800 PSI Gas Pressure Washer, CARB Compliant

    The Wen Gas powered pressure washer is a cheaper alternative to the Troy-Bilt option.

    This unit is powered by a 4-stroke engine and can generate up to 2,800 PSI. There are plenty of good reviews about the brand name.

  5. Ryobi 1900 PSI 1.2 GPM Cold Water Wheeled

    Finally, we have the Ryobi 1900 PSI pressure washer. 

    This unit is great for cleaning off your grill, patio furniture, and other light outdoors items.

    This is a great option for the average home owner.
