About this deal

While budget brands are more likely to fit this price-tag, some mid-range manufacturers also offer a basic model: Added Convenience– With push-fit connections, in-use gun storage, and a detergent nozzle, your cleaning experience is made easier than ever before.

If you haven't used a pressure washer a great deal, then it's quite easy to get the hang of it. However, there are a few things I learned the hard way about how to use a pressure washer. When storing the Bosch Universal Aquatak 135 pressure washer, you need to make sure that you don't place the main body of the pressure washer on top of any of the cables, or twist the high pressure hose either as this could permanently damage it. Your final consideration will no doubt be whether you buy from a dedicated pressure washer brand – such as Karcher, Nilfisk, or Bosch – or a lesser-known brand. Well, with an ever-increasing number of manufacturers entering the pressure washer market, this decision is harder to call now than ever before. And you can forget the old rules of premium machines being supplied ready-to-use and only cheaper pressure washers requiring assembly. In this group, the Karcher and Nilfisk models required a fair amount of screwing together, whilst Wolf’s Blaster 4x4 came ready to go. Versatile Cleaning– The Aquatak 135 includes a trio Nozzle with fan, rotary, and pencil jet settings. Perfect for a variety of cleaning tasks around the home. Electricity is by far the best way to power pressure washers for cars. This is because gas-powered devices are much more powerful and likely to cause damage to paintwork. Gas-powered pressure washers are mainly used in industrial applications.

Titan 140 Bar Pressure Washer

It easily washed any of the mud splatter off the surfaces, and I was careful not to aim the jet at any of the window or door seals in case it caused any water ingress. We tested a range of pressure washers and pressure cleaners, putting them through their paces on a range of surfaces. They were assessed according to the following criteria with equal marks attributed to each: The manual advises that once you've turned off the main switch, you should then operate the trigger to drain any remaining water from inside the high pressure hose.

That being said, this spring they were in a particularly bad state after a very wet and muddy winter where the garden and patio often resembled a paddling pool rather than a welcoming spot to sit outside. The weather had taken its toll on the paving slabs and the patio and garden path were in serious need of a good clean. I'll be upfront here and say that our patio has certainly seen better days! It's on the list to be replaced when we extend our house in the coming months, so the pavers are quite old and we haven't been the best at keeping on top of cleaning them. The paving is a chequerboard design of alternating red and yellow-toned slabs so having them covered with a slight layer of dirt actually helps to mask this awful colour combination! In the past we've used the good old-fashioned method of scrubbing the patio with a broom and water to give it a refresh after winter. In our video guide, we outline all of the above points and demonstrate how to use a pressure washer on both vulnerable, easily damaged surfaces and larger areas, such as paths and patios. Specific car cleaning attachments are also available, including angled tools for reaching beneath the body of the car and brushes to softly clean the bodywork.

Once you've assembled the Bosch Universal Aquatak 135 pressure washer, you need to make sure that it's on level ground to ensure that it works correctly. Placing it on a paved area such as your patio, rather than on the lawn at the edge of the patio is the best option. When cleaning vertical surfaces, apply the detergent from bottom to top. When rinsing off, work from top to bottom. For cleaning our patio and the car we didn't need to use this as the water on its own was enough to get rid of the dirt. I'd also be mindful of using detergent on our patio as I wouldn't want the run-off water to soak into the soil and damage our plants. Plus with a puppy that likes to drink/eat anything in sight, detergent-filled water all over the patio is far from ideal! I can imagine that over winter when the car is really muddy and dirty, however, that the detergent attachment could be a useful addition. There are lots of different models for different tasks as well as a range of attachments and optional extras available. These include:

Finally, consider how water will drain away when you’re working and remember not to use a pressure washer in freezing temperatures. These mistakes are definitely down to user error, however, and not the pressure washer. I found the Bosch Universal Aquatak 135 pressure washer pretty simple to use. It's easy to set up, switch between modes and cleans a wide range of surfaces with ease. Additional features of the Bosch Universal Aquatak 135 pressure washerThe higher the power, the harder the machine will be able to work on tough areas, but some surfaces may require a lighter touch. A pressure washer can be used for a whole host of cleaning tasks and this will affect which attachments and settings you use. There are a number of things to consider before buying your washer. The tougher the job, the more power you’ll want from your machine. The smaller or more delicate the area, the less power you’ll need. It's easy to move the pressure washer to where you need it by lifting it using the large handle on top of the machine. It has large wheels so you can also pull it along. The handle is extendable for complete ease of use, so even if you're tall like I am, it's easy to reach down for the handle and pull it along behind you. Don't try and pull it by the hose as you could risk damaging the attachment, plus it could topple over and damage the main body of the machine.

There are a couple of excellent reasons why the Bosch tops our pressure washer test. First, it’s well priced despite delivering really excellent, high-pressure performance and a good selection of accessories. Secondly, it’s a neat design that feels really well made and is also compact, with a hinged and foldable rear handle. High Pressure– Boasting a 135bar pressure capability, high pressure gun and reliable 3 cylinder pump, the Aquatak 135 is the ultimate cleaning accessory. It’s hard to find fault with this power washer. If we had to be critical, perhaps this would come in the form of the use of artificial intelligence in creating all of its products, or at least assisting in reducing the amount of available jobs for humans. Simultaneously however, Bosch does seem to have considered this with the amount of associates it employs globally being just short of 400,000. It’s easy to dismiss washing a car with a pressure washer as just being about convenience. But in many ways, pressure washing is the best way to revive your car’s appearance. For starters, using electricity to make the water work harder dramatically reduces the volume of water used, compared with traditional hose rinsing. So not only is less water wasted, but also your car’s hidden, slow-drying cavities will get much less drenched. And for blasting away the salt-rich dirt that clings on beneath sills or under wheel arches, a pressure washer is essential. A blast from a well-aimed lance will dislodge what a hose will simply dampen.Don’t worry if you’ve not heard of this make of pressure washer: it’s Screwfix’s own brand, and the unit itself is really good. It seems well put together and is a sensible design, with a hook to keep the 6m hose coiled up when it’s not being used. It delivers decent pressure levels and you get a fan nozzle, turbo nozzle and a patio cleaner. It’s a straightforward, good-value, no-nonsense option. We recommend a minimum of 1200 PSI – or 83 Bar – to get the best results. At the high end, we suggest an upper limit of 2400 PSI – or 165 Bar. All of the products we review here fit within that power range. For older cars, classic cars, or cars that already have damaged paintwork we suggest using water pressure on the lower side in case a high pressure causes damage. User Friendly– For more enjoyable and effortless cleaning, this model includes a quiet motor pump, extendable handle, larger wheels, and 7m hose. If you’ve got a large or commercial area to clean or some seriously built up grime, you’ll be looking for a high powered pressure washer. These pressure washers should be able to clean large areas of paving as well as vehicles, such as 4x4s and caravans.
