UPDATE: If you are looking for an electric pressure washer, head over to our Kärcher K5 Full Control Home Pressure Washer review.
Pressure washers are great for cleaning outside. The Aldi Workzone Petrol Pressure Washer is no exception.
This excellent tool is part of the new Workzone Titanium+ range. It features a 3.6-litre fuel tank, heavy duty brass pump head, all-terrain wheels, five interchangeable nozzles, plus a suction feature for use with static water.
The box it comes in is big, really big. What’s inside is big too! It has to be assembled, so a warm, dry day is a good time to do this. If you get an early start, you could be using it by the afternoon. The instructions aren’t that clear so this makes assembly even more time-consuming.
Before you start you will also need a 5-litre petrol can to fill the tank up with. Before you start the engine, you need to have the water running. Otherwise, the engine may break.
There are five nozzles of various sizes to choose from to do the job you want – and it’s really easy to attach one as it simply pushes on.
The pressure washer goes anywhere your hose does, so if you have a long hose you can go quite far. With the water, it is advisable to use detergent especially recommended for pressure washers.
In use, the device really does bring out the dirt. Unfortunately, a lot of it lands on your body, so old work clothes are advisable.
The tank lasts about most of a two-car driveway before needing a refill. As the engine is petrol-driven, it is loud, so not something to is used at night or early morning.
The pressure washer costs £199, it isn’t cheap, but it does to a great job at removing dirt and should last for years if well looked after.
