There are many different applications for which you can use a pressure washer. Before we get to our review, we are going to take a look at a few of these uses. One of the most popular applications for these machines is the cleaning of the exterior of homes and other buildings. There are many reasons why they are excellent for these tasks.

Manually cleaning the exterior of your home by yourself is almost impossible. There is simply too much surface area that you have to cover. By the time you finished cleaning your home, you would return to the spot at which you had started and you would find that it has gotten dirty once more.


The extra reach offered by the jet of water ensures that you will be able to clean the higher parts of your walls without needing a ladder or something else that can provide you access. Since the walls of homes tend to be made of materials that are not ideal for hand washing, pressure washers allow you to get out deeply-embedded dirt as well.

Along with walls, you will find that fences are far easier to clean off with a pressure washer. Since fences tend to be long and tall, it will be just as hard to clean them manually as it would be to clean the walls of your home. It is for this reason that investing in a pressure washer ensures that you can keep your home and the surrounding area much cleaner.

Another use for pressure washers is to wash vehicles. Certain vehicles are best cleaned with pressure washers, such as boats, but you will find that even cleaning your car becomes far easier with a pressure washer. You will no longer have to awkwardly reach over or take an hour to ensure that your vehicle is thoroughly cleaned.

Cord Length

One of the most important features to search for in an electric pressure washer is a cable of sufficient length. Unlike gas models, the cord is the primary source of energy to power your pressure washer if it uses an electric motor. If you cannot connect your cord to a suitable outlet, it will not be usable.

This is why most electric pressure washers come equipped with a cord that is tens of feet long. Even then, however, you may not find that the cord is long enough. In these cases, you will have to ensure that you have an extension cord of suitable length to provide power for your pressure washer.


Many models will come equipped with some form of cable management. This will allow you to ensure that your cord does not get tangled up at your feet while you are not using the whole length. For most home applications, you will likely not require a cord which is overly long, as you will usually be close enough to an outlet.

When you decide to use your pressure washer to clean off things that are a little bit further from your home, however, you will find that you have a bit of difficulty. Before making your purchase, take the time to consider how long of a cord you will need to save you trouble in the long run.

As we just stated, this is the best compact pressure washer available on the market. While it may lack some of the amenities that you will find on larger models, the small size is an advantage in and of itself. This compact size will allow you to bring this pressure washer with you anywhere you would like to go.


The smaller size means that you will have to use a separate soap applicator with this product, which is not that much of an inconvenience. The inclusion of a 35-foot power cord ensures that you will be able to use this product even when you are positioned far from a power outlet.

When you combine the 20-foot hose with the 35-foot power cord, you will realize that this product has enormous reach, even for a small power washer. You can even choose the manner in which you would like to position this pressure washer, be it vertically or horizontally.

What Others Say

Most other customers were huge fans of the small size of this pressure washer but the surprisingly powerful water output. There are few better options for those who would like to invest in a pressure washer but don’t want it to take up a large amount of storage room.

The only criticism we have seen directed at this model was due to the inclusion of a manual soap dispenser instead of one which is integrated into the machine. This was done to save as much space as possible, which makes sense when considering the size of this model.

Buying Advice

While this model is small, it is not as cheap as you may expect. While it does not rival the price of most larger pressure washers, you will find that it is still substantial, but it is well worth it when you consider the build quality of this product. This pressure washer can be purchased for around $106.88.
