Test results
CHOICE Expert Rating (%) Expand to view more details.

This overall score is made up of cleaning performance (60%) and ease of use (40%).

Cleaning performance score (%) Expand to view more details.

Each cleaner is tested on a sandstone path. This is a tough test, allowing our tester to rate how well the pressure cleaners clean the path. He uses each cleaning nozzle supplied and times how long it takes to clean with each. The fastest time is used as the basis of the cleaning performance score. 

Ease of use score (%) Expand to view more details.

We rate ease of manoeuvring, taking into account hose length, unit weight and ease of wheeling. We also assess ease of cleaning; checking the length of the handle/lance, vibrations and trigger comfort.

Noise (dB) Expand to view more details.

We measure the noise of the cleaner at the user's position, approximately one metre from the unit. The noise produced by each nozzle is measured and we publish the highest noise level here.

Recommended products
Recommended Expand to view more details.

We recommend pressure cleaners that score at least 80% overall.

Detergent bottle Expand to view more details.

When we test performance, we only test using water in order to provide directly comparable results, but a detergent may help for some types of stubborn stains.
