Best Electric Pressure Washers for 2017 Reviewed

Electric start pressure washers have many advantages against gas machines – they are cheaper, lighter, not as loud (and most of them are equipped with the Total Stop System so they are really quiet until you press the trigger) and easier to use – they start with a push of a button and require very little maintenance.

On the other hand, you are limited by the cord and they are also less powerful – which makes them ideal for a classical homeowner use. Here we present you the best ones currently for sale, with ratings, prices and reviews:
