Choosing a pressure washer that meets your needs can be a challenge without easily accessible information. We compared user reviews from a variety of reliable sources and compared the data. The results are published here.
Keep in mind this information primarily covers customer satisfaction and does not go in depth regarding different types of features for each model. When selecting the pressure washer that fits your needs, make sure its specifications such as PSI, GPM and engine type are appropriate for the type of tasks you will be completing.
User Review Details
In researching pressure washer ratings and reviews across multiple sources, we found that there was a wide range of opinions. Surprisingly, there is very little consensus from one source to the next. Because the results are so varied, instead of averaging the scores for a final rating, we decided to present the breakdown of each source individually.
Top Ten Highest Rated Pressure Washers on Amazon
The reviewers on Amazon have identified a clear winner when it comes to high ratings. The Yamaha model has an average rating of 4.8 out of 5, with the next highest rated model coming in at 4.4—The Sun Joe SPX3000 pressure washer. The remaining eight models in the top ten come in between 4.0 and 4.2 out of 5, and are made up of a combination of models by Generac, AR Blue Clean and Simpson.
Top Rated Pressure Washers according to Lowes customers
Out of the ten highest rated units, the Generac brand takes up eight of those spots. The highest rated unit is from Karcher. Other than a lone Troy-Bilt model, the rest are Generac pressure washers. They are listed from highest to lowest rated below:
Highest Rated Pressure Washers According to Walmart Customers
The top ten best rated models in this list include the only two 5 out of 5 ratings in the whole group. The Stanley 1600 and the Sun Joe 2030 models are very well regarded. Karcher and Generac models comprise most of the remaining spots on the list. The Campbell pressure washer comes in around the half-way point.
Because there are so many variations in available models, there were not any clear stand-out models across the multiple sources. Two very similar Sun Joe systems scored high from two sources. Across all three venues, Generac stands out as the most popular brand, though the ratings of individual models vary widely. We would recommend reading specific reviews for any model you are interested in, as well as making the sure specifications meet your needs.
