The Lowe’s house brand Electric Pressure Washer Model # 51142 from Greenworks turned out to be much better than expected.
I have used the Greenworks Pressure Washer for around 6 hours total run time with no issues. Concrete and cement came out just as clean and white as my $500 Honda gas powered washer. You just have to hold the tip closer and move a little slower to get the same results with this small electric model.
The 0˚, 25˚, 40˚ quick connect nozzles were easy to pop in and out for fast job changes. And the smallish 15ft hose never kinked up on me but the shorter length required more moving around of the washer itself.
I primed the washer first by running water through for thirty seconds to make sure to get all air out of the pump. Starting any dry pressure washer can quickly lead to a over heated motor. Just plug in the cord and squeeze the handle and washer fired right up. No problems.
I have used the Greenworks 1500 Electric Pressure Washer on 400 sq yards of concrete with the 25˚ tip, removing a thick coating of algae growth with ease. I used the 40˚ the spray down the dirty vinyl siding of a 1600sqft home and blew the mud out of the wheel wells of my truck.
I believe if I treat this small, but effective electric pressure washer with a bit of care it should last me a while. Do not think this can replace a big gas powered model for huge construction sized jobs because it won’t. Just not enough strength and durability for that. I do think this will make a good choice for occasional small jobs around the house. In my opinion it was well worth the $99 I paid for it. Hope one will work just as well for you.
