Whether for serious cleaning at home or on a trade site, it’s hard to go past a pressure washer powered by a Honda engine. With best in class performance backed by decades of reliability and a huge service agent network, a Honda pressure washer blows away the competition.
But how do you know which Honda pressure washer to choose?
Before you start comparing features, there’s one crucial thing to check: make sure the brand you opt for is using a genuine Honda Australia approved engine. Not an import or a fake. There are plenty of impostors out there (affectionately known as a ‘Chonda’) which are just copies or grey imports. Part of the reason you pay good money for a Honda is not only the engine’s performance, but the service agent support network you get – if its not a genuine Honda, it won’t be backed by authorised service agents for spare parts or warranty support.
Next, work out what you’ll be using the Honda pressure washer for most of the time. This will help you prioritise the right features.
To help, take a look at our pick of the best Honda pressure washers for different tasks:
Best for serious domestic chores
This mighty machine comes from an Australian company that specialises in manufacturing robust cleaning equipment, Jetwave. As a new release, it’s crammed full of features that make light work of tough cleaning tasks around the home. Take the brass high pressure swivel, designed to prevent the hose twisting and tangling as you obliterate grime. Electric washers simply don’t stand up against this Honda pressure washer, so if you need to remove built up grime or stains on a driveway or patio, then a petrol machine like this is recommended.
Best value for money
Gerni is a trusted name in the industry, whose pressure washers rarely disappoint. This model has an attractive price tag of around $2000, especially for a Honda pressure washer with 3480psi. The ceramic pistons, pneumatic wheels and tough framing, as well as 10 metre heavy duty hose, make it particularly good value for money. Especially for light and medium commercial tasks. Plus it comes with 1-year Gerni warranty and the 3-year Honda engine warranty. This is a popular model for tradesmen and contractors for general worksite cleaning tasks.
