The Best Pressure Washers 2019

Our ratings-driven view of the market often highlights unexpected models for sale. It can also steer you away from a 'bestseller' - if owner ratings suggest poor performance.

Ratings in this report start at 4.6 stars

Prices range from £80 to £240

How does it work?

We begin by building a list of pressure washers with more than 50 ratings at Amazon UK, Argos and John Lewis. This jumps straight to the established products, and the rating scores reveal how they've actually performed, according to numerous owners.

We then remove the pressure washers with less than 4 stars. We now have a list of the higher rated models, with a credible amount of opinion. We use the same criteria for all our consumer reports: each product must have over 50 reviews and more than 4 stars.

After sorting the list by ratings, we compile the following Top 5.

Well Rated Finds The Best UK Products

Our Notes on this Market

2017
The UK pressure washer market is busy – and complicated. We saw many similar sounding product names, which hid big differences.

It is a sector full of high quality products. In the last couple of years we’ve seen a rise in competition, which is always good for the consumer.

The main manufacturers in the 2017 market are Kärcher, Bosch, Vax, Qualcast and Nilfisk.

In our first report in 2015, Kärcher filled the Top 5. Last year we saw a Qualcast power washer rate highly. This year we see two products from Vax make the Top 5.

In 2017 there are 16 Kärcher machines for sale, with some discontinued machines still available.

There are four main product groups in the Kärcher series – the K2, K3, K4 and K7. Each increase in number sees an increase in power. Things get complicated with the Kärcher variants:

  • If it says ‘Compact’, it will be a smaller version
  • If it says ‘Home’, it will have a patio attachment
  • ‘Car’ will have car accessories included

With Vax, there are currently 4 base models – a 1700Watt, a 2000Watt, a 2200Watt and a 2500Watt version.

With Vax, the ‘Complete’ versions have patio and car attachments.
