I currently have one of those Greenwork powerwashers. I've used it for the last 6 years. No issues other than it's underpowered. Looking for a better, higher powered, electric one.

Thank you

I have a Stanley electric power washer and its fine.

I have not looked at all the models but was under the impression that for more power you needed to go to gas.

I am somewhat convinced that all of the <$300 electric pressure washers are extremely similar, but the specs on the Greenworks unit almost seem to good to be true.

Since you want more power, electric may not be able to provide that for you. People on here can say my "blah blah brand" is great, but you may not have the same opinion when using it.
I do like the HF recommendation above however.

There are commercial electric power washers that run on 220v, they do a much better job.

I use both, although my gas one died and I'm putting off replacing it. The electric one does an adequate job at about 75% of what needs to be done, and they're quick and simple to use and maintain.

I'll probably upgrade both when a good (significantly
better) product becomes available.

I have the Ryobi version of the Harbor Freight/Greenworks one. Same price at $199

https://www.homedepot.com/p/RYOBI-2-000-PSI-1-2-GPM-Electric-Pressure-Washer-RY141900/205566055

It does all that i ask of it.. its main chore is removing heavy clay mud from my sidebyside after every ride. It also has pressure washed my deck once and has cleaned my personal vehicles probably 40 times.

Only had one issue that the wand burst a fitting and thats because i left it outside during a freeze. My fault.

I use Tide in the soap dispenser for mud.. seems to do well.

I have found anything Greenworks tends to be somewhat overrated on power based on experience with similar products. I have an older Milwaukee 14.4 hammer drill that is way more powerful than my Greenworks 24V drill and even the impact driver. They claim higher torque specs but in reality my old Milwaukee will snap heavy lug bolts off when driving into a deck. Not a chance with the Greenworks.

I also have a few of their yard tools that work fine for light maybe medium duty residential use. Tried retiring my 22 year old Makita weedeater but found it was still better than a 40V Greenworks. The 40V polesaw works fine for trimming trees around the house but definitely not a commercial product.

Also I have used several electric 110V pressure washers and they are fine for smaller light duty jobs but take too much time and effort for larger jobs. I do like that they are quieter than gas though. Would be good indoors too where you would not want gas exhaust fumes building up CO.

Thanks. I have had good luck with other Ryobi products.

I just retired my Karcher electric and replaced it with a gas DeWalt. Not sure why I waited so long. Night and day difference.

The greenworks is definitely over-rated/fake specs.
2300 MAX PSI at 1.2 GPM, 2.3 GPM MAX at 100 PSI

but they will rate it 2300psi 2.3gpm max.

They can only do so much on under 15amps of 120v

look for usable hose reel, stable platform and around [email protected] is about it.

i just bought a ryobi electric and it made my 20 yr old wood fence look new. whatever you get, buy the "pump saver" lube to flush out the water after use.
