A BBC Gardeners’ World Magazine Best Budget Buy, this cordless pressure washer from WORX is a super option if you don’t have an outside tap for a garden hose or would find a portable pressure cleaner useful. It’s compact, yet powerful enough to handle washing the car, patio and garden furniture, as well as watering the garden, and comes with a two year warranty.
What are the main features of the WORX PowerShare Hydroshot Pressure 20V WG620E Cleaner?
This pressure cleaner is truly portable as it’s both cordless and, as it’s self-priming, can draw water from a bucket, pool or river rather than requiring a mains supply – it also has a water inlet filter on the end of the hose so you don't have to worry about debris clogging up the system. It has a 6m hose and comes with a multi-spray nozzle, which features five settings - 0°, 25°, 40°, shower and mist and an extension lance. It's lightweight, weighing just 1.7kg, and operates at 22 Bar pressure, which delivers a water flow rate of 120 litres per hour. It uses a 20V 2 AH MAX li-ion battery, and we like that this has a battery level indicator to show how much charge is left. It’s also part of the WORX PowerShare family, which means the battery can be used with the other power tools in this range, saving you money if you invest in other tools in the future.
What’s the WORX Powershare Hydroshot Pressure Cleaner 20V WG620E like to use?
This WORX PowerShare Hydroshot Pressure Cleaner requires minimal assembly – you just need to attach the nozzle and the hose to the lance. It's also easy to start, simply press the push button and wait for around 30 seconds to empty the air from the hose, and you’re off. It offers up to 10 times more power than a normal hose, which means it was really effective at cleaning dirt and mud off cars, garden furniture and windows in our test. We like the five spray settings on the nozzle, which range from a powerful jet to a gentle mist and it's also handy that you have the option to use this pressure cleaner with your garden hose and mains tap if you want to. It takes between three to five hours to charge the battery – so a bit of planning ahead is required to use it – but it gives a good 30 minute run time.
What situations is the WORX PowerShare Hydroshot Pressure Cleaner 20V WG620E most suitable for?
Although this comes with limited accessories, this is a good alternative to a pressure washer or hose as it’s completely portable, making it ideal for those who don’t have an outside tap to water the garden or wash the car, patio and other light cleaning tasks. It’s also great for taking on trips to clean-down bikes after muddy mountain bike trails.
Is the WORX PowerShare Hydroshot Pressure Cleaner 20V WG620E good value for money?
This pressure cleaner is the cheapest in the group we tested, and although it doesn’t come with the range of accessories that the WORX WG629E.1 and the Yard Force have, it’s a great piece of kit. It’s also part of the WORX’s PowerShare range, and has a three year warranty, so represents good value for money.
