Best Electric Portable Pressure Washer

Product Discontinued
Expert Review
AR produces some of the best electric pressure washers available in the market today, and this is definitely one model that I would recommend. Unlike most electric pressure washers in this category, this model uses brass fittings- which is a huge plus over the more commonly used plastic fittings. The reliable pump is paired with a heavy-duty motor and contained in an easy to transport, stable frame. Storage slots on the side keep the wand and nozzles from getting lost, and a pressurized hose reel keeps the hose tidy and kink-free. This proven performer from AR has everything you need wrapped up in a sleek package.

    Simpson went above and beyond on this model, combining great components with a low cost!
