The is a great value option for a good all round petrol pressure washer. Combining high power, good value and good reviews you are starting off from a good point by looking at this model. Here’s our Powerplus POWXG9008 pressure washer review.
PowerPlus POWXG9008 206 Bar 3060psi Features
Powerplus offer a number electric pressure washers and have stepped up into the more robust and high power jet washers with this model. Perfect for those of you looking for that little extra that even the high end electric jet washer offer without going way over budget.
Pushing out 9 litres per minute at its maximum should be plenty to rinse down areas that are being cleaned. This is more than enough for a mid range domestic jet washer. As with many feature in this model there are higher flow rates but most of us won’t really need them.
ECO Petrol Motor
The 180cc motor provides plenty of power to hit the maximum pressure (206 BAR or 3060 psi) with no problem. To preserve the motor and protect it against damage there is an auto cut out if the petrol and oil gets low. This is an easy over sight to make once you start cleaning and forget how long you have been on the job. There are more powerful motors on the market from brands like Wilks and Hyundai but this is ample for domestic and light commercial use. The models with more powerful motors are more expensive.
Hose and Nozzles
The Powerplus 206 Bar 3060psi comes with enough kit to get you up and running straight away. The hose that is supplied is plenty long enough for tight corners and big jobs at 7.5 meters (24 feet). There are 3 angled nozzles and a soap nozzle. The angle nozzles are 0, 15 and 40 degrees which is plenty of range for most jobs. This is designed to be used out of the box.
3 Year Warranty
A real plus side for this model is it comes with three year domestic warranty. Brilliant if you use it during the summer and pack it away for the winter. When you come to use it again after the cold winter months you know you’ll be covered if there are any problems. Make sure you only use it at home if you want to keep the warranty intact as you could end up invalidating it with any commercial use.
For washing vehicles and really getting the grime off surfaces you have two options. There is a detergent tank built in allowing you to fill it up and wheel around to different jobs without carrying a spare bottle. The other option allows you to use detergent from a separate container. A great feature if you are cleaning a big area that will take more then one tank full to complete. For ease of use this is a nice touch.
This is an important factor no matter how much you are paying especially if you are a boat or vehicle fleet owner where you need a light petrol pressure washer. The steel sturdy frame has large diameter off road wheels with rubber tyres to help get it over lumps and bumps. Weighing in at 31 kgs it’s not to bad on the weight side. It’s not the lightest but is certainly manoeuvrable.
What The Owners Have To Say
Looking around the internet at various customer reviews we have to say it’s not just us a Petrol Pressure Washers that have been impressed by the POWXG9008. Below are a few of the common themes that we have picked up from various comments.
Not Very Noisy
A few people have commented on how quiet the engine is. This might sound like a small thing but some petrol washers run at very high revs and the noise can be ear splitting.
Many of you have been pleased by the fact that the motor starts on the first or second pull. A nice feature if you don’t want to feel like you have been to the gym while trying to start it up!
A plus point and a warning from some people. On the one hand very pleased that the power delivered manages to clean most things thoroughly. On the other hand a warning to make sure you test the pressure before you try cleaning walls as you could take the paint off if you are not careful.
Really Easy To Use
In the box is pretty much everything you need to get going apart from the fuel. Great for home users. Once the delivery arrives you can be up and running in no time at all. The set up is basic and simple with no complicated setting. If you have never used a petrol pressure washer before there are online videos for this model plus good instructions.
Well, we have to say that this is a good machine. It has a great combination of power, value for money and good customer reviews. To make you even more comfortable the 3 year warranty will give you that extra bit of comfort.
For the domestic user and occasional commercial user this will keep your property, drive way or boat very clean. It will speed the job up massively over the electric models on the market. If you value your own time this is a must.
For the heavy weight users that are running pressure washers for long amounts of time very frequently I would recommend looking at something like the Wilks TX850.
