Thread: Best electric power washer for 200$? +accessories

    Best electric power washer for 200$? +accessories

    Hey guys, another shopping questions :D

    In you opinion, what is the best power washer in 200$ range? I am leaning towards sun joe spx3001, but there are also some threads that suggest AR Blue one. Any owners here?

    Also, I am thinking of picking up a good, short gun and foamer, but to be honest I have no idea what to get as I am not familiar with US adaptors. Would appreciate the help!

    Thanks again!

    I had a Karcher and that didn't meet expectations. I have the SPX3001 for 3 years now I think, and never had an issue. The only challenge I have is the length of their hose was 15-20' I think and it really wasn't long enough. I am used to it now though at the expense of several minutes loss of productivity. I can live with that. Since then, though, Sun Joe did develop a longer hose. I am unsure if they sell it with the unit or only by accessory.

    Arn't Karcher PS also troublesome in terms of accessories? Can you change the gun on them?

    Greenworks; Powerplay PressureJet;
    and AR Blue Clean (for example)
    have quite the variety of differently
    rated PSI/GPM/Amperage electric
    Pressure Washers...all of which are
    within your stated price range.

    I have been very satisfied with this machine:

    The most recommended that I've seen is the:
    AR Blue AR390SS

    It seems to have the right balance of price vs adding features like the On-board Hose Reel & Metal inlet/outlet connections.....

    The only downfall is you need an adapter to run some accessories:
    AR390SS Adapter

    I bought a 1900 psi Power Stroke from Costco for $150. Not bad. Best thing is that it comes with a lifetime guarantee.��

    I have a Ryobi electric one here:

    Ryobi 1700-PSI 1.2-GPM Electric Pressure Washer-RY14122 - The Home Depot

    I've had it for 2 years now and had no issues. Works well for all my detailing needs. Comes with 3 year warranty.
