Highly Portable Power Cleaning

Standing in contrast to heavier, more involved gas-powered pressure washers, the redesigned Worx Hydroshot Ultra brings battery power to your around-the-house cleaning projects. By combining two 20V Li-Ion batteries with a brushless motor, the new-and-improved Hydroshot delivers 725 PSI from a unit that’s not much more involved than a garden hose attachment.

Worx Hydroshot Ultra

The 40V Worx Hydroshot Ultra incorporates an external motor pump into the high-pressure hose system. It takes some of the weight off of the handheld wand to reduce fatigue and improve control. You still have more weight in your hand than with a traditional pressure washer wand, but it helps.

The 2 x 20V system features two operating modes. In Low, you get 425 psi for cleaning windows, screens, sliding door tracks, and other lighter-duty jobs. The High setting delivers 725 psi for washing down decks, patios, vehicles, gutters, siding, and the like. It features an innovative 4-pattern spray nozzle that rotates to adjust between 0°, 15°, 25°, and 40° settings.

The Worx Hydroshot Ultra only uses 1.1 gallons per minute when attached to your garden hose. However, you do have the option of drawing from a standing water source as well. Using the included 20-ft. accessory hose, you can draw from buckets, lakes, pools, whatever. The accessory hose features an adjustable float that acts as a bobber to keep the intake from reaching sandy or muddy bottoms.

The Worx 40V Hydroshot Ultra Power Cleaner includes a pressure cleaning wand, two 20V 4.0Ah batteries, 60-minute dual-port charger, 20-ft. hose accessory, and quick-connect adapter.

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).
