Our top 10 list of power washers, or pressure washers as they are also called, provide an invaluable service to anyone who uses them. Unrivalled in function by any other tool, power washers spray water at high pressures, and with that spray, can then deep-clean, scrub, remove paint and rust, resurface materials, and more. When operated at lower pressures, these machines can also wet-sweep entire areas, gently but surely sweeping away dirt and debris from patios, driveways, or decks.
When shopping for a good power washer, though, what do you look for to ensure a smart purchase? To start, you can research the machine’s pump and motor, check hose and hose port integrity, and consider the device’s included controls and overall portability, but then there is plenty more. If this all sounds a bit much, don’t worry – we’ve got you covered. Follow along now for our comprehensive review of the top-ten best power washers out right now.
