    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 assess how easy the pressure cleaners are to manoeuvre, taking into account the length of the hose, the weight of the cleaner and how easy it is to wheel the unit around. We also assess the ease of using the cleaner, checking the length of the handle/lance, vibrations and trigger comfort.
