This wiki has been updated 20 times since it was first published in May of 2019. When tough outdoor cleaning jobs beckon, you'll want to reach for a pressure washer. They make short work of anything from cars to driveways to decks and fences. Karcher is a respected manufacturer of these labor-saving devices, and it offers electric units that cost less than you might think. Our selections also include some gas-powered models for heavy-duty use. When users buy our independently chosen editorial picks, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.

Editor's Notes

May 22, 2019:

Gave the K5 Premium the top spot because it has a quieter engine than some other models, it delivers enough pressure for most cleaning jobs, and because it can draw water from a bucket or cistern if tap water isn't available, making it more versatile than some of the other cleaners. We also included gas-powered units for people who have tough jobs to tackle. They're more expensive than electric models, but, like the G3000XK Washer, they deliver greater pressure--up to 3000 PSI.
