Greenworks Pressure Washer | What to Know Before You Buy
Our Expert Reviewers Make Buying a Greenworks Pressure Washer Easier
Specializing in electric models, Greenworks pressure washers cover a wide range of power and price levels. If you’re looking to break free from the noise, fumes, and maintenance of gas power, there’s bound to be one that fits your needs.
Our team of experts waded through the 20 models Greenworks has to offer and the available accessories and did the research so you don’t have to.
Best Greenworks Pressure Washer
Greenworks Pro 2700 PSI Electric Pressure Washer
The Greenworks 2700 PSI pressure washer is our favorite simply because it’s the most powerful. It has more cleaning power than any other Greenworks pressure washer, rivaling the power of some gas models.
Its brushless motor and axial cam pump crank out up to 2700 PSI with flow rates up to 2.3 GPM giving you the widest range of cleaning options and finishing those jobs faster.
There’s a price to pay for the power, though. This one comes in at $399.99.
Other Greenworks Pressure Washer Top Picks
Greenworks 60V 1800 PSI Hybrid Pressure Washer
Want a battery-powered pressure washer? Greenworks has your only option at the moment. Running on two 60V batteries (that also happen to power our favorite Greenworks OPE line), you get 1550 PSI and 1.1 GPM without the need for a cord.
This is a hybrid until, though, and you can plug it in to boost the power. Connected to an outlet, it boosts forward to 1800 PSI.
Greenworks Pro 2300 PSI Electric Pressure Washer
The Greenworks Pro 2300 pressure washer find the sweet spot between cleaning power and price. At $279.99, it’s more than $100 less than the 2700 PSI unit while only giving up 400 PSI and managing the same 2.3 GPM rating.
As an excellent all-rounder, this is the model to grab.
Greenworks 2000 PSI Vertical Pressure Washer
At $189.99, the Greenworks 2000 PSI vertical pressure washer is the least expensive model to hit the 2000 PSI mark. That’s not all we like, though. Its vertical design includes a hose real beneath the handle that makes life easier than a strap or hang hook.
Greenworks 1950 PSI Electric Open Frame Pressure Washer
Okay, so we’ll admit to being enamored with hose reels. Greenworks’ 1950 PSI open-frame model has a more standard design with a wider, even more manageable hose reel than the vertical model.
Pick this Greenworks pressure washer up for $199.99.
Greenworks 1800 PSI Electric Pressure Washer
For $149.99 the Greenworks 1800 PSI pressure washer earns a “Best Value” pick for the brand. At 1800 PSI, it has the capability to do just about anything, though it will accomplish them more slowly than higher-powered models. If your pressure washer needs are light, there’s no reason to pay more.
Must-Have Greenworks Pressure Washer Accessories
High-Pressure Soap Applicator (Foam Cannon)
Covering Greenworks’ entire range of pressure washer power levels, the high-pressure soap applicator is a great addition. Mixing at a 10:1 ratio, it’s great for applying foaming detergents on vehicles, siding, concrete, and anywhere you want to have some chemical assistance. Thanks to its all-in-one design, the canister is much easier to clean out than the detergent tank on the pressure washer.
Rotary Brush (For Models 1800 PSI and Under)
We don’t recommend you pressure wash your vehicle, even with a lower-power model. However, we make an exception if you’re using Greenworks’ rotary brush.
It uses the water pressure to spin the brush and do the hard work for you. Simply use the soap applicator to get a layer of grime-eating foam, switch to the rotary brush for cleaning, and then rinse it all away.
Switching from your 15º nozzle to a surface cleaner saves a ton of time. Seriously. It’s common for a 2-hour job to take less than 30 minutes because of how much area a surface cleaner covers.
Greenworks has two models to choose from. The lighter-duty model covers 11 inches, is designed for pressure washers up to 2000 PSI, and runs $29.98. The other works for models up to 3100 PSI with a wider 15-inch diameter and costs $50.01.
No matter which model is best for the pressure washer you’re using, it’s well worth the price for the time you’ll save.
Why Greenworks Pressure Washers?
There are several reasons we recommend Greenworks pressure washers. First and foremost, they’ve proved to be reliable over multiple seasons. With minimal care compared to gas-powered models, we’re confident it’s going to work when we need it to.
We also appreciate that Greenworks doesn’t play games with their numbers. When they say you get 2300 PSI, that’s actual working pressure, not the mystical “PSI Max” that can be inflated by more than 30%.
Finally, Greenworks tends to be a solid value, hitting a price point that’s within reason for homeowners with cleaning power that can get the job done.
Of course, Greenworks isn’t alone and there are other excellent brands competing in the same space. However, we believe Greenworks as a brand does very well by its customers and offers a wide range of electric pressure washer to meet their needs.
Electric Pressure Washer Buying Guide
When you’re trying to decide between pressure washers, knowing how much cleaning power there is can be confusing. PSI tells you how much force is there and GPM tells you how much cleaning volume you get.
Simply multiply those two numbers together to see which one you’re considering has the most total cleaning force.
|Model A||1800 PSI||1.1 GPM||1980|
|Model B||2000 PSI||1.2 GPM||2400|
|Model C||2300 PSI||1.2 GPM||2760|
How Much Pressure Do I Need?
Greenworks pressure washers range from 1500 PSI to 2700 PSI and we separate them into two groups:
Up to 1800 PSI
- Car/boat/RV washing*
- Shutter cleaning
- Spot cleaning concrete
- Outdoor furniture (including wicker)
- Lighter mildew removal
*Even lighter-duty pressure washer can damage vehicle finishes. We recommend only using a pressure washer to apply soap and rinse painted/clear coated/chromed areas.
Over 1800 PSI
- Concrete cleaning (pairing with a surface cleaner saves tons of time!)
Remember, you can always dial down the pressure with a wider nozzle, but you can’t make an underpowered pressure washer stronger.
With electric pressure washers pushing the limits of what you can do on a standard 110V outlet, look for a model with a brushless motor to get the most power and longest life.
There’s nothing wrong with brushed motors, you’ll just get more from brushless if you want the best experience. The downside is that brushless models will cost more.
Electric pressure washers can have smaller footprints than gas models and are generally lighter weight. However, electric models can take things down to a whole new level of portability with some designs small enough to easily carry with one hand.
While there’s a power trade-off to go down in size, if your pressure washing needs are on the low-power side, it’s a great way to keep your garage or shed from getting overcrowded.
Even with more powerful electric units, designers have the option to build more vertically and save some floor space.
During spring and summer sales, it’s common to find electric pressure washers starting around $100.
As you’re shopping, start with the budget you have in mind and use that cleaning power calculation to decide which one is right for you. Unless space is at a premium, we suggest getting the most cleaning power you can afford.
