About The Tool

Greenworks Pressure Washer Review

Greenworks Pressure Washer Review Pressure Washing was once seen as a professional only service. One that could cost a pretty penny to hire out too. Pressure Washers are still predominantly run on gas, making owning and maintaining them tedious, loud and all around cumbersome. As well, higher end units can cost over a thousand dollars easily, causing most homeowners to turn the other way. Today though, we see more and more manufacturers offering a variety of ways for users to skip the hassle of gas engines and still achieve great results. Greenworks is a great example of manufacturers doing this, offering both battery and electric tools in their Outdoor Power Equipment lineup. With a range pf Pressure Washers, every user is covered too, everyone from the weekend warrior to the Pro user.

My Thoughts

Turbo Nozzle in use on a particularly bad area of our porch that tends to have both dirt and algae growth during the wet months.
When we first bought our current home, I remember thinking instantly that the exterior just felt dirty. From the sidewalks to the brick work, it was a lot of sq. footage that desperately needed cleaning. And has since needed cleaning several more times! What I wasn’t prepared for was the sticker shock that comes with pressure washing. After I got a few bids, I debated either A-selling a kidney, or B the tried and true method of doing it myself. Being the frugal DIY-er I am, I knew I would find a solution that was more cost effective.

This is about the time I discovered how much of an impact a small pressure washer could have on how our home looked. Since then, I have used a few different models from standard gas, to an electric option from another brand and had some mixed experiences. Power seems to be the main concern in the debate between these two platforms and while you may sacrifice some power by choosing electric. For the bulk of common applications though, you are unlikely to notice this trade off. In my experience, both could get the job done, it is purely a matter of weighing the other benefits. For me, the reduced maintenance and easier operation of electric, means less downtime and more efficiency which will always win out to me. Not to mention the operating volume alone will have you opting for electric any day. One area where I would agree the gas option was a clear winner in prior experiences, was in terms of longevity. I noticed early models of electric pressure washers struggled to last more than a season or two, making the investment harder to justify. This is where Greenworks model really wins out, offering a 3-year warranty on a tool that users may have some initial hesitation about. So- in this regard, the Greenworks model offers both great performance with a warranty that ensures years of solid cleaning power. As well- Lowe’s offers their standard 90-day guarantee offering another layer of protection.   Greenworks Pressure Washer Review A few things that really stand out in the Greenworks that really lend itself to a user-friendly experience are things like the on board storage for the attachments and hoses. This is always a big deal in terms of storage and keeping the accessories together. I liked the design as well of the cart- the large wheels allow easy mobility and in use this is a major point to the overall user experience. I honestly was surprised by how powerful the unit was overall and really enjoy being able to grab the unit out of storage and start it up in a matter of moments when an area needs cleaning. All in all, Greenworks did a great job designing a cost effective unit that could still provide incredible performance. With Pressure Washers like this being as accessible as they are to use, it is a must have!
