Taking first place in our electric pressure washer reviews is none other than the best selling Sun Joe SPX3000. This pressure washer has the power and reliability to tackle any job around the house. We tested it on the patio, driveway, brick and everything in between. It can handle delicate jobs as well, just swap out the nozzle to wash the car or screen porch.
The SPX3000 packs a strong 1800 Watt electric motor pumping water out at 2030 PSI, making it just as powerful as most gas pressure washers.
We found one of the best features to be the Total Stop System (TSS), which only runs the pressure washer when you pull the handle to spray. This saves water, power and extends the life of the electric motor.
Other great features included an energy saving mode, dual detergent tanks, a 35 foot power cord, and it comes with 5 different spray nozzles out of the box.
Powering into second place is the reliable and efficient AR Blue Clean AR383. This electric pressure washer was heavily considered for first place, but it fell a little short in power compared to the Sun Joe SPX3000.
This AR Blue Clean AR383 power washer still packs and impressive 1900 PSI of cleaning power, while only using 13 Amps at peak operation. We were able to tackle every cleaning job just as well as the SPX3000.
While it does fall behind slightly in power, we felt this pressure washer really made up for it in efficiency. Right out of the box, this machine is almost completely setup and ready to use. Lightweight and very easy to move around, this was probably our favorite electric pressure washer to clean the car with.
Last but not least, we tested the lightweight and compact Yard Force 1600. Compared to the other pressure washers in our reviews, the Yard Force does fall behind in a few area such as power, hose length, and included attachments. With a cleaning power of 1600 PSI, it still handled most jobs extremely well.
We did however love how compact this pressure washer is. If you are limited on storage space, this would be the machine is for you. With 2 wheels on the back and a unique square body design, the washer can easily be pulled to follow you without flipping over.
The Yard Force 1600 still comes with great features like a 19 Foot hose, 2 quick-connect nozzles and a 32 OZ built-in soap tank. Add the Yard Force 2 Year Warranty and a price of around $100, you can't go wrong.
Price: Electric pressure washers are generally less expensive than gas, while still providing great cleaning power (PSI) and value.
Reliability: Unlike gas powered washers, most electric pressure washers have a great feature called Total Stop System (TSS). This feature only runs the machine when you pull the handle to wash, which helps preserve the longevity of the motor.
Size: A lightweight and compact electric pressure washer is important for home users who may have limited storage space.
Ease of Use: Most electric power washers weigh less than 30 lbs, setup within minutes and are much easier to maneuver than gas pressure washers. Did we mention you don't have to fill up a gas tank or store fuel?
