 verdict: A very good buy to clean large areas

This quick and effective pressure washer is a great choice for people with large areas of grimy ground or vehicles to deal with. We found it brilliant at cleaning a car and the patio cleaner that it comes with cleans more quickly but gets the same excellent cleaning results. It is easy to use and has a good range of different jet strengths, so you have gentler options to care for more delicate surfaces.

Pros
  • Cleans quickly
  • Powerful and gentle cleaning sprays
  • Feels solidly constructed
  • Plug-in detergent bottles are useful
  • Fairly easy to tell which setting you are using
  • Not as noisy as some
Cons
  • Heavy to lift
  • Could damage delicate surfaces
  • Handle and lance weight make it a bit tiring
  • Hose is quite fiddly to set up and put away
  • No hose reel

 verdict: Powerful cylinder washer for car cleaning

This pressure washer narrowly misses being a Best Buy as it’s not quite good enough at cleaning softwood decking. But it’s definitely worth considering for anyone who wants a pressure washer to keep their car and garden spick and span but doesn’t want to fork out for our more powerful and expensive Best Buys. The unit seems slightly smaller than other pressure washers with a durable water-cooled motor and it is a reasonable price for those who want a lot of power in a relatively compact design.

Pros
  • Easy to move around as you clean
  • Powerful for a cylinder pressure washer
  • Good cleaning ability
  • Two handles for carrying
  • Reasonable size for storing
Cons
  • Noisy motor
  • Heavy and expensive for a cylinder pressure washer
  • Lacks easy hose and cable storage

The Nilfisk Core 140-8 In Hand Power Control UK has plenty of power and copes easily and quickly with dirt, stains and algae on hard and soft surfaces when using the two supplied nozzles. It’s cheap compared with many pressure washers, although it’s worth bearing in mind that any additional tools you wanted would have to be bought separately.

Pros
  • Plenty of power
  • The rough nozzle is good on all hard surfaces
  • Good at cleaning the car
Cons
  • No tools supplied
  • The gentle nozzle is a bit slow at cleaning decking

  • Light to carry
  • Handle folds down for easier storage
  • Compact and robust design
Cons
  • It uses a fair amount of water
  • Slow to clean
  • Fairly short hose
