Our expert testers give every model a thorough workout to help find the models that:

  • are best at cleaning
  • are the easiest to use
  • come with a range of tools for cleaning a variety of surfaces.

Our interactive comparison tool helps you find out which brands are the best performers. And our Recommended list will help you quickly see which models come out on top.

Due to a change in test conditions in 2019, pressure cleaners can't be directly compared with 2018 results. You can filter results by year.

    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.

    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.
