High-pressure washersThe latest releases are compact and have more cleaning power, making them suitable for DIY, commercial and industrial use.

The growing popularity of high-pressure washers as a household tool is prompting suppliers in Taiwan and mainland China to develop designs that can be used for light- to heavy-duty applications.

Fitted with powerful pumps and strong engines or motors, the latest units are more compact and can be used for cleaning vehicles, swimming pools, walls, CNC machines and other industrial equipment. They are also suitable for construction and agricultural work.

The suppliers interviewed for this report have developed models with enough power for medium- and heavy-cleaning jobs. Traditionally bulky heavy-duty washers are now offered in lighter weights of 30 to 50kg with operating pressure of 2,900 to 3,600psi or 200 to 248 bar.

Lightweight units 23kg and below, with less than 2,000psi or 138 bar, are also available. The lightest model featured here is an 8kg, 1,014psi or 70 bar washer from a Taiwan maker.
