  • 1800 PSI Cleaning Pressure
  • Instant start/stop feature
  • 20 foot plastic Hose
  • Comes with Adjustable fan lance and Turbo lance
  • Onboard Storage

Compact, Lightweight and User-friendly

This electric pressure washer features a compact, lightweight design so moving it around is never a burden. The unit sits on two plastic wheels which aid in rolling it easily to your destination.

A large on/off control dial is located at the front of the unit to provide easy access to operate the washer.

A 35 ft GFCI power cord provides a good amount of reach to get to different outdoor areas without requiring the use of an extension cord.

Instant Start/Stop Feature

One of the best features of this machine is its instant start/stop feature. This automatically turns off the pump when you release the trigger gun, which means less strain is put on the pump to help extend its lifespan, conserve energy as well as reduce the noise.

1800 PSI Cleaning Pressure

Powered by a 14-amp universal motor, quiet operation with zero odors is assured. The unit delivers 1800 PSI of cleaning pressure at 1.5 GPM (gallons per minute). This sort of output is ideal for light-duty residential cleaning tasks like washing car windows, cleaning garden decking, driveways, vinyl siding and patio furniture.

20 foot Hose

The unit comes supplied with a 20 foot long plastic hose. As the hose is made from plastic opposed to rubber it isn’t as durable as we’d like, but is still sufficient providing you take good care of it.

The manufacture sells a 25 ft hose extension which can extend the hose by 25 ft. You might want to consider this if 20 foot is too short for your intended usage.


In an addition to a standard spray gun, the unit comes supplied with two basic wands. The turbo lance delivers a powerful stream of water, making it suitable for cleaning solid surfaces like concrete. The adjustable fan lance provides a spray range adjustable from 0-60 degrees. This is ideal for lighter cleaning tasks such as cleaning car windows or furniture fabrics.

Onboard Storage

The onboard storage provides a handy place to store the power cord, hose and accessories for convenient access.

Detergent Tank

At the rear of the unit is a 1 liter detergent tank. This allows you to add detergent to the mix for extra cleaning prowess when the wand is set to low pressure mode.

Pros and Cons


This is an excellent compact pressure washer which has gained a good reputation for its easy setup, cleaning performance, reliability and user-friendliness. Campbell Hausfeld has succeeded in creating a solid, affordable machine which provides great bang for your buck.


Plastic hose. The hose is prone to kinking and is stiff so it isn’t as good as the rubber variety of hoses. Also, the hose is quite short being just 20 ft long, making it awkward for jobs like cleaning cars. However, there is an extension hose available which works with this machine.

The hose inlet fitting on the unit is made from cheap plastic, which results in frequent leakages. Therefore, replacing this with a brass type fitting is advisable. The type of brass fitting needed is a 3/4″ sized double sized female hose thread.


  • Height: 31 inches
  • Length: 13 inches
  • Width: 11 inches


  • Weight: 25 pounds
Final Thoughts

The Campbell Hausfeld PW1825 Electric Pressure Washer is a basic, but well featured machine which meets its intended purpose for light-duty use. Its compactness and lightweight are strong appealing aspects. Additionally, it comes with a nice long power cord and a good PSI rating which is at the higher end of cleaning power for light-duty type washers.

Just be sure you replace the plastic hose coupler as soon as possible to prevent leakages occurring.

Powerstroke PS80516B 2200 psi Gas Pressure Washer

2,200 PSI Cleaning Pressure

For a gas powered machine, this model has a pretty low pressure output at 2,200 PSI with a flow rate of 2.0 GPM (gallons per minute). Despite this it still packs the cleaning capability to comfortably tackle all general cleaning jobs like removing dirt and grime from concrete driveways, patios and siding. Just don’t expect to do tough jobs like strip paint or remove graffiti with this machine.

Onboard Storage

Onboard the unit has a home for everything. Dedicated onboard storage compartments allow you to store the hose, wand, spray gun and nozzle tips so their always within easy reach.

25 ft High Pressure Hose

Included is a 25′ long non-marring high pressure hose which provides a very good reach from the unit. Its non-marring finish ensures that the hose is resistant to getting marks.

The hose connects to a 21 ft long chrome plated spray wand, which is designed to reach long distances. With the wands quick connect nozzle coupler, replacing the nozzle tip is a cinch.

Comes with Three Nozzles

The three nozzles provide varying degrees of water so you can take on tasks which need intense pressure and ones which require a more delicate clean with a wider spray angle. The nozzles include a 25 degree and 40 degree fan nozzle plus an LP soap nozzle.


Since it boasts of an ultra compact frame, the Powerstroke PS80516B is more compact than most gas powered machines. The machine measures 19.25 inches in length, 34.75 inches in height with a width of 17.25 inches. The unit weighs in at 45 pounds so it can be moved to different spots easily.

Pros and Cons


The Powerstroke PS80516B is super simple to assemble. Its lightweight and streamlined frame design allows for easy storage and mobility. With its solid pressure output it has enough power for any cleaning task most home owners will put to it.

PWMA certified.


Some users had difficulty starting the engine the first time so you may need a spot of starter fluid to get it going.

Final Thoughts

The Powerstroke PS80516B Gas Pressure Washer is in the lower echelons price range of gas powered machines, but is a well rated product due to its compact design, features and impressive cleaning capability.

While there aren’t a lot of consumer reviews on this machine at present, there is enough to indicate this is a quality piece of equipment which represents great value for money.

If your cleaning needs aren’t heavy-duty this is an excellent low-end gas model to opt for.

Generac, one of the world’s leading brands of pressure washers unveiled the Generac 6596 Gas Powered Residential Pressure Washer from their latest residential grade line-up. Packing in 2800 PSI with a 2.5 GPM flow rate, this gas powered machine is capable of some serious power washing for taking on some of the largest and toughest residential cleaning jobs.

Read Consumer Reviews on the Generac 6596 Pressure Washer

Engineered from the ground up, Generac put strong focus on customer wants and needs so their pressure washers are tailor made to be simple to use and perform like they should.

  • 10″ Wheels
  • 196cc Generac OHV Engine
  • Axial Cam Pump with easy-access hose
  • 2,800 PSI Cleaning Pressure
  • Ergonomic Spray Gun
  • On-board Detergent Tank
  • 25′ PVC Hose
  • Quick-Click Nozzle Tips
  • 2-year limited warranty

Easy Assembly

Those new to pressure washing or even those familiar with it will appreciate just how quick and easy this pressure washer is to assemble without requiring any tools. Simply attach the handle, add gas and oil then attach the hoses then the machine is good to go.

Built for Practicality

For enhanced mobility over rough terrains, the Generac’s robust welded steel frame sits on two large 10″ never-flat wheels. The remarkably well balanced vertical design ensures the unit is easy to move around. A foot rest is situated at the front of the machine which helps you stabilize it as you start up the engine, avoiding any unwanted tip over occurring.

196cc Generac OHV Engine

To cope with the demands of tough applications on a regular basis, the machine is equipped with a high quality 196cc Generac OHV horizontal shaft engine which has a sizable fuel tank with a 3.8 quarts capacity. The recoil start allows for easy starting with a quick pull.

Axial Cam Pump with Easy-access Hose

The Generac 6596 is fitted with a reliable AR axial cam pump. The pump has been designed with the hose connections located at a reachable height above the wheels so the user doesn’t need to kneel when connecting hoses to the unit. This is especially good for people with back problems.

2,800 PSI Cleaning Pressure

For a residential-grade unit, this model has an excellent cleaning pressure rating of 2800 PSI with a 2.5 GPM water flow rate. This gives it enough cleaning power to take on the majority of demanding applications which call for high pressure.

Ergonomic Spray Gun

Generac’s ergonomically designed spray gun has a nicely cushioned grip handle for maximum user comfort during long uses. Additionally, its long easy pull trigger minimizes operator fatigue so you won’t get tired on the job.

A spray gun holder is situated on the frame in the centre to provide a handy and convenient place to hold the spray gun when it’s not in use.

On-board Detergent Tank

An onboard ¾ gallon tank lets you store detergent in the unit, giving you the option to use cleaning detergents when a task calls for it. The detergent is pumped straight through to the tip at a low pressure and injected into the water stream.

25′ PVC Hose

The 25 foot PVC hose provide ample length to reach wherever you need to clean. However, the hose itself isn’t one of the strong points of this machine. Since the hose is made from plastic and coated with PVC, it’s prone to breakage when it gets kinked so we recommend you replace it with a better hose when possible.

Quick-Click Nozzle Tips

Along with the spray gun itself, there are four quick click nozzle tips which specialize in providing the right amount of cleaning pressure for certain jobs. The nozzle tips include 0 degree, 25 degrees, 40 degrees plus a soap applicator tip when you need to use cleaning detergent.


Thanks to its vertical upright design, the Generac 6596 has quite a small footprint making it easy to store. It measures 40.3 inches in height, 23.3 inches in length and has a width of 16 inches. It weighs in at 61.5 pounds which makes it lighter than most similar machines in its class.

Pros and Cons


The Generac 6596 pressure washer is made in the USA and built with a rugged steel frame and high quality components. The stable compact, vertical design makes for easy transportation of the unit. Additionally, the overall design is well thought out which enables you to access the controls conveniently.

Its powerful OHV engine and pump deliver 2800 PSI which allows you to clean almost anything in a residential setting.

Highly affordable.


Poor quality hose. The included hose isn’t the best so we advocate investing in a better one asap.

It should be noted, this model isn’t CARB Compliant.

Final Thoughts

The Generac 6596 Pressure Washer has a fine blend of user-friendliness and high power, all at an affordable price. Its sturdy, robust design is reassuring for those in search of a long lasting machine.

It’s suitable for all general residential cleaning tasks like cleaning siding, decking and patio furniture as well as more heavy-duty applications like paint removal and getting rid of encrusted oil stains from surfaces.

While the hose isn’t up to par with the rest of the machines quality, it’s a relatively inexpensive part to replace so isn’t a major drawback.

This is an excellent medium-duty pressure washer which qualifies with a strong buy recommendation.

Karcher 1.418-050.0 K3 Follow Me Electric Pressure Washer

Karcher 1.418-050.0 K3 Follow Me Electric Pressure Washer

When it comes to the task of pressure washer cleaning, anything that makes the job that bit easier is always welcome so we are intrigued to see if the Karcher K3 can deliver as promised. The Karcher K3 Follow Me Electric Pressure Washer now under review is uniquely designed with a 4 wheel base which makes it easier to move than a regular pressure washer so it will literally follow you as you go about your cleaning duties.

Read Consumer Reviews on the K3 Follow Me Electric Pressure Washer

Designed for light duty usage, the K3 has 200 PSI more cleaning power than the previous Follow Me model which makes it suitable for most pressure washer applications around the home.

  • Four wheel design
  • 1800 PSI Cleaning Pressure
  • N-Cor pump
  • Quick Connect System
  • 35 ft power cord; 15 ft high pressure hose
  • Removable detergent tank
  • DirtBlaster spray wand
  • Vario spray wand attachment


Four Wheel Design

The Kärcher K3 Follow Me is rather characteristic in its appearance as it looks more like a miniature buggy than a normal pressure washer. Its four wheel base features two large rear wheels and two steerable front casters which in turn provide excellent manoeuvrability so you don’t need to constantly drag the machine along by its handle as you move to a different cleaning area. Just simply pull the hose along and the K3 follows you like a puppy.

Karcher 1.418-050.0 K3 Follow Me Electric Pressure Washer

1800 PSI Cleaning Pressure

The machine can deliver up to 1800 PSI cleaning pressure at 1.3 GPM, which makes it fall into the light duty category. This makes it suitable for cleaning vehicles, block paving, garden furniture as well as other light duty residential cleaning tasks.

N-Cor Pump

N-Cor pumps are some of the best pumps around since they are built with a unique custom compound that has been rigorously tested for optimum strength and durability. Its self priming design means that no maintenance is required. Designed to be corrosion free, you’re getting a pump which should outlast the machine itself.

Quick Connect System

For quick convenient setup, the quick connect system allows you to connect the hoses into the front and rear hose inlets on the unit with just a quick push.

35 ft power cord + 15 ft high pressure hose

This Karcher pressure washer comes equipped with a 35 ft GFCI power cord plus a 15 ft high pressure hose so you have plenty of room to clean areas up to 7500 square feet.

Removable detergent tank

A single removable detergent tank is onboard the machine. This lets you optionally use detergents as you spray on low pressure mode. The wide mouth opening allows you to easily fill the tank without any unwanted spillages.

Onboard Storage

A molded onboard storage caddy takes care of the storage for the trigger gun and wand accessories. Additionally, the hose and power cord can be wrapped around on top of the unit.

Spray Wand Accessories

The K3 Follow Me comes supplied with two spray wand accessories which are quick and easy to attach when per needed.

The Vario spray wand attachment gives you the option to adjust the cleaning pressure from the wand itself by a quick turn of the wand, so you can safely clean areas which need lighter pressure such as wooden decking then notch it up as and when necessary.

The DirtBlaster spray wand as its name suggests is ideal for tackling those tougher jobs where greater cleaning intensity is required such as cleaning block paving.


The K3 follow me has quite a small footprint despite being significantly longer in length than most upright style pressure washers. It measures 21.7 inches in length, 12.8 inches in height and 12 inches in width. Since the unit is mostly constructed of plastic, it has a lightweight of just 16.3 pounds so it’s easy to roll around even for extended periods.

Pros and Cons


The Kärcher K3 Follow Me sports a unique design with its innovative 4-wheel base which takes cleaning convenience to another level so manoeuvring around obstacles as you clean is no longer a problem.

Other highlights include the excellent corrosion-free pump which is very quiet as the user sprays. The machine packs a good amount of power for most residential cleaning tasks.


Storing the hose and power cord onboard the unit can prove to be difficult. Therefore, it’s worthwhile to keep the box handy to store everything in.

The hose is a too short for some people at only 15 ft long.

Final Thoughts

This machine is a very creative pressure washer design which gives you a greater amount of manoeuvrability than with standard upright machines, in addition to avoiding problems of the unit tipping over.

With its 1800 PSI of pressure at a nice flow rate of 1.3 GPM it comfortably handles all light and medium duty pressure washing tasks. For a lightweight, practical machine the Karcher K3 is a top choice and is great value for money.

Powerworks 51112 1600 PSI Electric Pressure Washer Review

Powerworks 51112 1600 PSI Electric Pressure Washer

Powerworks 51112 1600 PSI Electric Pressure Washer

Today we’re going to be taking an in-depth look at the Powerworks 51112 1600 PSI Electric Pressure Washer to see whether or not it is worth your money.

Pressure washers are tools that can definitely make your life a lot easier, but there are so many different makes and models on the market it can be downright confusing as to which ones are worth the money. If you’re considering the Powerworks 51112 as your pressure washer then you need to know about all the features that it has so that you can be sure it’ll be a good fit for you.

Read Consumer Reviews on the Powerworks 51112 Electric Pressure Washer

  • Up to 1600 PSI; 1.3 GPM flow rate
  • 35 Foot Power Cord with GFCI
  • 25 Foot Pressure Hose
  • Built-In Soap Tank
  • Quick Connect Gun and Wand with 3 Tips
  • 1-year warranty
  • PWMA Certified

Electric Motor Produces Up To 1600 Psi

This pressure washer is on the lower end of the spectrum when it comes to psi power output. This unit can produce up to 1600 psi of force out of the water nozzle. This amount of pressure is great for cleaning your car, getting dirt off your house or off pavement, getting dirt off your deck, and general pressure washing.

However, 1600 psi is on the lower end in terms of pressure. It’s not enough to say, wash paint off of vinyl siding for instance. Or if you have really set in dirt and grime that’s been sunbaked for years and years, 1600 psi may not be enough, and you’ll want to opt for a stronger pressure washer.

1.3 Gallons Per Minute Flow Rate

This unit flows at 1.3 gallons per minute or GPM. This is about an average flow rate you could expect from unit of this pressure capability. This GPM railing is relatively low on the scale which means your unit will use less water than a unit that flows at a higher GPM.

35 Foot Power Cord with GFCI

Since this is an electric pressure washer it comes with an electrical power cord that powers the device. This cord is about 35 feet long so you’ll be able to have good mobility when using this unit outside. 35 feet is about three or four car lengths of space to give you an idea of how long the cord is.

The cord also comes with a ground fault circuit interrupter also known as GFCI. This is a device that shuts down electrical current when it detects current is flowing along an unintended path. So if your cord gets breached and water gets on it, the GFCI will shut down the pressure washer preventing damage and an electrical shock. This is a great safety feature to have and will give you confidence when using your pressure washer.

25 Foot Pressure Hose

In addition to the 35 foot power cord the actual pressure hose is 25 feet long. This is long enough to help you reach places that are a couple of stories off the ground or to walk around your whole car while you are washing it. The hose is a pressure hose, which means it is thick and relatively difficult to bend all the way.

Built-In Soap Tank

For car washing and other washing purposes the Powerworks 51112 1600 PSI Electric Pressure Washer comes with a built-in soap tank. You can use a wide variety of soaps with this pressure washer with no problem. The pressure washer will automatically introduce to soap into the water stream making it easy to wash whatever it is that needs washing. This is a great convenience feature as many pressure washers are only able to spray water and you have to apply the soap either by hand or with another machine.

Quick Connect Gun and Wand with 3 Tips

The gun on this pressure washer uses a quick connect system so that you can quickly put on or remove the gun and the gun wand. The wand also is able to connect up to three different tips depending on the spray pattern that you want. It has a tip that sprays fine small lines, a wide sweeping arc, and a tip in the middle of those two.

This quick connect gun and wand system makes it easy to make sure that you can get the best wash for the job that you are doing. Some jobs need smaller more precision spraying, while others require a large spray pattern that cleans a lot in one sweep. You’ll be able to do it all with this pressure washer.

Big Rear Wheels

Lugging a heavy pressure washer around is the last thing anyone wants to do. Thankfully the Powerworks 51112 1600 PSI Electric Pressure Washer comes with two large rear wheels that make transport very easy. The wheels are made from hard plastic so you won’t have to worry about keeping tires inflated or anything like that. They make it easy to move the pressure washer in your garage, up and down hills, and make loading it onto and off of a truck easy.

Hose Reel

This pressure washer also includes a built-in hose reel. This reel provides you with the ability to quickly and easily roll up your hose and store it on the unit itself. If you’ve ever worked with a pressure washer that required you to store hoses elsewhere, you know how frustrating it can be to have to constantly plug-in and unplug new hoses. This holder provides quick, easy, convenient storage for your hose and you never have to unplug it.

PWMA Certified

This pressure washer is certified by the Pressure Washers Manufacturers Association or the PWMA. The PWMA requires any pressure washer certified by them to be manufactured to a certain standard of quality. If the pressure washer fails to meet their criteria they do not put their stamp of approval on it. This PWMA certification means that this pressure washer will spray at the pressure it is advertised at, provide you with years of durability, and only flow the amount it is advertised to flow.


This pressure washer is relatively small and compact. It is 21.85 inches lengthwise, 12.8 inches height wise, and has a width of 19.1 inches. It weighs 28.88 pounds when empty, and probably a couple of pounds more when you fill it with soap.

Pros and Cons


1 Year Limited Warranty – Powerworks provides a one-year limited warranty for the 51112. They will cover any defective issues, or breakdowns, and offer you either replacement parts or a full replacement unit for free.

This warranty does not cover freeze damage. So if you live in a place that gets below freezing temperatures you want to make sure that you store your pressure washer in a place that is above freezing. If you do not, water inside the unit can freeze, rupturing lines, causing leaks, and rendering the unit inoperable. Powerworks won’t cover this type of damage under warranty so make sure you take heed and don’t let your 51112 freeze.

Great Pressure For The Price – You’d be hard-pressed to find another washer that can provide 1600 psi pressure with the 1.3 GPM at the price that the Powerworks 51112 is being sold for.

Compact Size Makes For Great Portability – Many pressure washers are big, bulky, and heavy machines that are not easy to move around. This pressure washer uses a very compact design and lightweight materials to make it very easy to move around.


Pressure Dies Down After About 8 Feet – Since this unit does only provide 1600 psi of pressure, the pressure stream dies down after about 8 feet or so. This means you’ll need to be relatively close to whatever it is you’re trying to wash. This is not really a con as the machine was only designed to put out 1600 psi, but if you need to spray places that are more than a few feet away from you with pressurized water, you may want to seek out another pressure washer.

Low Capacity Soap Tank – The soap tank is a relatively small size which provides adequate soap for most small jobs. However if you have a larger job like washing a big truck, SUV, or RV, than more than likely you’re going to have to refill the soap tank one or two times depending on the size of your vehicle. This is a minor inconvenience, but is enough of an issue to be listed as a con.

No Cord Storage – Also the designers seem to have left off a place to store the electrical power cord. So you have to wrap it up and hang it on the railing of the pressure washer. Keep this in mind when you’re putting your pressure washer up, because you don’t want anyone tripping over the cord and tearing it up.

Final Thoughts

In conclusion, this pressure washer is a good buy for the money. It has enough power to take care of most small pressure washing jobs, and only flows at 1.3 GPM which means it won’t use very much water keeping your bills low. It’s electrical powered too so you don’t have to worry about constantly buying gasoline and oil. So if you’re looking for an all-around low to midrange pressure washer that won’t take up much space, but still do a great job then you should definitely purchase the Powerworks 51112.
