Worx WG604 Mobile Cleaning Machine

The Worx WG604 excels in wrapping everything up in a convenient and portable package. A solid choice for homeowners, the Worx 1600 PSI pressure washer sits on a tubular steel rolling cart with a cross-section panel for onboard storage of your four quick-connect nozzles. A wind-up hose reel below the panel keeps the 25′ hose organized and out of the way. We can’t help but want to see this on some higher-output models from other manufacturers. 8-inch no-flat tires give you mobility over multiple types of terrain. In all, the whole kit weighs just under 30 lbs.

Integrated Soap Tank and Storage

The WG604 also gives you a 42 oz. soap tank with a cap designed to adjust the flow rate. A cord wrap on the left side of the cart stores the 35-ft water-resistant cord. Meanwhile, a holster on the side of the handle keeps the metal wand secure during both travel and storage.

The wand, which features a full-length trigger and lock-on switch, comes equipped with a 1/4″ brass quick-connect coupler for fast nozzle changes. Each of the nozzles comes color-coded with imprinted icons that denote its function. You get a soap nozzle for gently applying detergents, a 40° nozzle for sensitive window work, a 25° nozzle for your “everyday” work, and a Turbo nozzle for blasting off tough dirt and grime from surfaces. The Worx WG604 also accepts aftermarket nozzles—just be sure to match the PSI rating.

The Worx WG604 comes with a 3-year warranty and a 30-day guarantee. You can pick it up, either at Worx.com or through Amazon, for $169.99.

A Minimalist’s Dream

Next, Worx also offers the space-saving 13 Amp 1500 psi Electric Pressure Washer. The WG601 weighs just 16 lbs and can be carried around conveniently, much the same way you would a tackle box or small shop vac.

Even with its compact and portable frame (17 x 12.5 x 12 in.), it houses an axial cam pump and a universal engine capable of generating 1500 psi at 1.2 gpm.

The Worx compact 13-amp pressure washer includes a 20-ft. hose and water-resistant 35-ft. power cord. The wand features two snap-in ports to house the two included quick-connect nozzles: a 360° turbo nozzle and a general-purpose 40° nozzle. Like the WG604, the 1500 psi Worx electric pressure washer will accept aftermarket tips if you need a bit more versatility.

You can pick up the Worx WG601 for $99.99. It’s available directly from Worx.com or Amazon, and it comes with a 3-year warranty and 30-day guarantee.

Troy Bilt Pressure Washer Review

The challenge was to find the least expensive, gas powered pressure washer available to us locally. Since these tend to be a little on the heavy side of things, we opted to forgo an on-line deal because of the shipping cost and to fulfill our need for instant purchase gratification.The Troy Bilt 020292 Pressure Washer fit the bill.

Ryobi 4 Cycle Trimmer RY34440 Review

Ryobi’s RY34440 4-cycle string trimmer promises, among other things, quieter operation and greater fuel efficiency. It’s a “green” product (in more ways than one) that delivers less fuss when fueling since you don’t need to pre-mix your oil and gas. It also works with Ryobi’s Expand-it line of attachments – which are even backwards compatible with products I bought over 10 years ago. The 4-cycle trimmer comes with just the string trimmer attachment, but does include both a bump head and a pro-style head that facilitates easy string replacement and will handle larger diameter string (and more efficiently to boot).
