If you’ve ever had to clean decks, sidewalks, patios, or driveways, then you know a pressure washer is the best way to go. The popular cleaning tool pumps pressurized water through a fine nozzle to tackle those tough stains on your outdoor surfaces.
Since electric pressure washers are powered by — you guessed it — electricity, they are far more eco-friendly than their gas-powered counterparts and don’t emit fumes or fuel spillages. While they’re slightly more expensive and less powerful than gas-powered models, electric pressure washers are a good long-term investment if you’re looking to make your workshop or toolshed more environmentally friendly.
When shopping for a new pressure washer, you should pay attention to the PSI rating and the gallons-per-minute flow rate. Pressure and flow rate work together to provide enough power and water to properly clean a surface. Models with lower PSI and GPM ratings are considered light-duty, while those with higher ratings are labeled medium- or heavy-duty.
With so many models to choose from, it can be difficult to narrow down your options. So to help you decide which electric power washer is fit for both your workshop and budget, ZDNET has gathered a list of the five best models available to buy right now.
