Best Electric Pressure Washer Overall

Greenworks Commerical 2500 PSI Brushless Pressure Washer

Greenworks 2500 PSI Industrial Pressure Washer Review - Best electric pressure washer overall

Greenworks earned our top overall recommendation as the best electric pressure washer as it moved into the professional category. It’s capable of legitimately replacing gas models with 2500 PSI with 1.2 GPM or 2.1 GPM at 100 PSI. While that doesn’t compete with the 4000+ PSI behemoths, those of you who make a living on the lighter side of professional cleaning can kick the gas can.

Giving it the DNA to enter the commercial/industrial class, this model pairs a 14-amp brushless motor with a 1000-hour industrial-grade triplex pump to give it a long service life. As you consider the breadth of electric pressure washers, it’s tough to find one better built than this.

Pros

  • Brushless motor
  • Excellent performance level
  • Commercial build with a triplex pump
  • Easy to roll and transport
  • PWMA certified performance

Cons

  • Expensive

Numbers to Know

  • Model: PW-2500C
  • PSI: 2500
  • GPM: 1.2
  • Cleaning Power: 3000

Price: $699

Best Electric Pressure Washer Power

Ryobi 3000 PSI Brushless Pressure Washer

Best Electric Pressure Washer Power - Ryobi 3000 PSI

Ryobi is one of just two brands to hit the 3000 PSI mark (Greenworks is the other) with a corded electric pressure washer that’s certified as a working pressure and not playing games with the PSI Max* marketing that is often misleading. Paired with 1.1 GPM, it’s the strongest performance we’ve seen from a corded electric model so far. When you compare it to what you can get on the gas side, it’s moving into the middle-performance range and breaking new ground for the electric class.

The downside is that you pay more for the highest performance. However, with no gas to pay for or small engine mechanics to keep it running, you get the performance of gas with the convenience of electric power.

Pros

Cons

  • Expensive for a residential model

Numbers to Know

  • Model: RY143011VNM
  • PSI: 3000
  • GPM: 1.1
  • Cleaning Power: 3300

Best Cordless Electric Pressure Washer

EGO 56V Cordless 3200 PSI Pressure Washer

EGO battery-powered Pressure Washer

If you’ve been waiting for a legit lithium-ion battery-powered pressure washer, the wait is over. EGO is hitting the market with a performance level that blows away every other cordless unit… and tops the charts against corded electric models.


In Turbo mode, it can deliver 3200 PSI and 1.2 GPM, while getting water flow up to 2.0 GPM at lower pressure levels. The secret to getting such high performance is EGO’s combination of a powerful brushless motor and two 56V batteries. At its lower performance setting, it can run up to an hour with two 6.0Ah batteries and has the capability of using a siphon hose when a pressurized water source isn’t convenient.

Pros

  • Brushless motor
  • Highest electric pressure washer performance—corded or cordless
  • Three working modes to manage battery usage
  • Siphon hose capable (siphon hose included)
  • Telescoping handle
  • Includes a wand and foam cannon

Cons

  • Expensive for a residential model

Numbers to Know

Best Portable Electric Pressure Washer

DeWalt 2100 PSI Jobsite Pressure Washer

DeWalt 2100 Max PSI Electric Jobsite Pressure Washer DWPW2100 - Best Portable Electric Pressure Washer

DeWalt got our attention with a portable electric pressure washer that balances performance and portability better than others thanks to a brilliant design. On the performance side, it packs higher performance than most small-form pressure washers with 2100 PSI and 1.2 GPM.

The genius is in the physical form—everything packs into a suitcase-size housing and roll cage. Open up the door on the side to find the hose and nozzle storage. The hose wraps neatly into the roll cage. You also get a telescoping handle and wheels to make it easier to transport even though it’s larger than the models we’ve recommended in the past.

Pros

  • Compact design
  • Internal accessory storage (hose stores externally using the roll cage)
  • Telescoping handle
  • CETA certified performance

Cons

  • Small wheels don’t roll as well across bare ground
  • Somewhat limited performance for a professional model

Numbers to Know

  • Model: DWPW2100
  • PSI: 2100
  • GPM: 1.2
  • Cleaning Power: 2520

Price: $349

There are quite a few choices out there, some with higher performance and some that bundle accessories with the pressure washer. Depending on which of those is your priority, we picked one of each.

There are a few options to get 2000 PSI and 1.2 GPM under $200, but Greenworks undercuts its competition with a price tag of just under $180. Additionally, the unusual form factor puts a hose reel in the center, making your hose management a far more convenient task.

Best HART Electric Pressure Washer – 3000 PSI Brushless

HART has several pressure washers to choose from and our top choice is the 3000 PSI/1.1 GPM model. It steps up with 50% higher PSI than the best HART had last year thanks to the use of a brushless motor, putting it in a cleaning performance class with some of the biggest names in the business. The overall design is tried and true, and the cleaning power really can exceed what you get from entry-level gas models with far less maintenance and frustration.

If you haven’t been paying attention to HART’s OPE lineup, it’s not only pressure washers where the brand is making big gains. It’s across the board and HART is quickly making Walmart a destination for quality battery-powered OPE and power tools.

Best Stihl Electric Pressure Washer – RE 110 Plus

Between their two electric offerings (the RE 90 is no longer available), the Stihl RE 110 Plus offers homeowners better performance. With 2000 PSI and 1.2 GPM coming from its brushless motor, there are plenty of more powerful options available. However, none of them have the service network Stihl does.

What About Sun Joe?

There’s some confusion surrounding some manufacturers’ PSI and GPM ratings. Brands such as Sun Joe and Westinghouse decided to use “PSI max” as a way to communicate pressure and it’s not the same as how other manufacturers get their numbers. Check out this article for more details.

While these brands make popular pressure washers and can do a good job of cleaning, pay close attention to the numbers when you’re comparing models.

Best Sun Joe Electric Pressure Washer – SPX3000

Sun Joe has one of the largest lines of electric pressure washers available. There’s no question the SPX3000 is their most popular. Boasting 2030 max PSI and 1.76 GPM, be sure to take a look at the fine print before pulling the trigger. Under a typical working load, it produces 1450 PSI, and the GPM rating is taken with the nozzle open (AKA no nozzle installed). Even though its $169 price tag is compelling, you can find better performance in a similar price range.

On the positive side, Sun Joe’s design is easy to use. It has two removable detergent tanks and comes with 5 nozzles. Despite straying from typical specification reporting, it is a very approachable pressure washer that has served many homeowners well.

Price: $190.81

Best Westinghouse Electric Pressure Washer – WPX3200e

The Westinghouse WPX3200e PSI pressure washer takes on a traditional design that’s easy to move around hard surfaces or lawns. On the performance side, you’re looking at 3200 max PSI and 1.76 max GPM. Like SunJoe, these numbers come with an asterisk, and there’s no obvious indication of what the working PSI and GPM are.

If you dig into the manual, you can find that the “Rated Max Pressure” is 2800 PSI and the “Rated Water Flow Rate” is 1.1 GPM. Most electric pressure washers need a brushless motor to get that kind of performance on a 120V system, but Westinghouse doesn’t make a claim one way or the other about it. Since we can’t say for sure how those ratings were measured, we’re not sure if those are what you’ll experience on the end of the nozzle or not.

Price: $373

Best Worx Electric Pressure Washer – WG607

Worx is another brand that displays PSI max, but to their credit, they make it very clear what the expected working pressure is. On the WG607, they put the 2000 PSI working pressure in the name and let you know it has 2200 max PSI in the technical specs. The same goes for the GPM rating. Its rated flow is 1.2 GPM with a max of 1.4. We appreciate the clarity!

We like the hose reel built into the frame a lot. Managing the hose when you’re storing or moving any pressure washer can be a pain and the assist is helpful. Among the four nozzles that come in the box, the ever-handy turbo nozzle helps these lower-PSI units work more efficiently.

Buying the Best Electric Pressure Washer

Electric Vs Gas Pressure Washer

Electric pressure washers don’t have as much power as gas models. They do, however, hit levels that are excellent for use around your home.

What’s nice is how low-maintenance electric models are. There are no gas, oil levels, spark plugs, or carburetors to worry about. Plus the noise level is much lower and there are no emissions.

You are tied to an electrical source, though. Considering you are also tethering to a water source, it’s not as inconvenient as a corded vs cordless power tool.

Comparing PSI and GPM

It can be tough to figure out which option among several pressure washers gives you the best cleaning power. There’s a relatively simple formula to compare them—just multiply the PSI by the GPM. Here are a few examples:

PSIGPMCleaning Power
Model A20001.22400
Model B22001.43080
Model C23001.32990

Take a look at this article to learn more about the relationship between PSI and GPM in pressure washers.

Pressure Washer Vs Power Cleaner

There’s a relatively new class of cleaning tools called power cleaners that are on the market, such as the Worx Hydroshot. These are incredibly convenient for cleaning a variety of things, especially considering you can connect a hose directly to them or use a siphon hose and a bucket of water.

The big difference between a pressure washer and a power cleaner is that pressure washers have much higher pressure. A power cleaner is fully contained in a tool not much larger than a pressure washer wand. Due to this, the components have to be smaller. While pressure washers usually start around 1500 PSI and go way up from there, most power cleaners are 300 – 600 PSI. On the other hand, the flow rate of a power cleaner can be similar to an electric pressure washer.
