The 5 Best Pressure Washers of 2018

The 5 Best Pressure Washers of 2018

Pressure washers are handy tools for cleaning anything from cars to walkways. However, not all pressure washers are the same. Before moving on to the important specifications of the 5 best pressure washers of 2018, we will explain some key features of pressure washers.

Type - electric pressure washers plug in to an AC electrical outlet, while gas pressure washers require gasoline

Pressure - the force per unit area, measured in pounds per square inch (psi), that the pressure washer is able to generate; more is better as you can always back away from what you are working on if the spray is too powerful

Flow Rate - the volume of liquid per unit time, measured in gallons per minute (gpm), that the pressure washer is able to flow; more is better, but pressure washers with higher flow rates will use more water

Spray Tips - the number of tips provided with the pressure washer; most include one soap tip and a few tips for water only offering different spray patterns or angles

On-Board Soap Tank - an on-board soap tank provides a convenient place to store and dispense the soapy liquid, but many opt to use external soap dispensers or "foam cannons" since certain types of soaps can be harmful to certain surfaces (e.g., car paint with wax)

Hose Length - the length of the high-pressure hose from the pressure washer to the handle with the trigger and spray tip; longer hoses are more convenient since you won't have to relocate the pressure washer as often

Motor Amperage - the current draw of the electric motor of the pressure washer; more is better since motor amperage is usually directly proportional to pressure

Weight - the weight of the pressure washer itself (not the shipping weight including the box and packaging material as some sites use)
