9 best pressure washers
Make the most of the good weather and tackle those outside cleaning jobs you've been putting off. Whether you're hosing down the car or tidying up the drive, we've found the washer for the task
Friday 25 July 2014
A pressure washer can be a true time saver in the summer months, making a whole host of cleaning jobs much easier and quicker. Whether you want your car or bike to look pristine, or you want your fence or gutters to have a good clean-up, a good pressure washer can work miracles when it comes to dislodging dirt. It doesn’t stop there, with some pressure washers working their magic on anything from patios to decking and wheelie bins to garden furniture.
If you’re considering buying one, think first about the kinds of tasks you’ll use it for, then make sure the machine you buy has the relevant attachments. Another key consideration is pressure since the higher the pressure, the more power is focused on the dirt. Also think about weight and wheels, as well as the length of the hose, and finally ease of use.
Still unsure which one to buy? Think of our round-up as a shop window featuring the best pressure washers available. From Karcher's compact model that won't take up too much space in your garage to Brigg's & Stratton's seriously powerful machine for tackling those big jobs, we've tried and tested a range. We’ve been busy cleaning our gardens, cars, bikes and more so that we could create a list of the ones we believe stand out above the rest.
