Review of Streetwize SWPW Portable Pressure Washer
This is a review of the Streetwize Portable Pressure Washer
The Streetwize SWPW Portable Pressure Washer is very lightweight at 1.6kg and at a very small cost its silly not to have one of these for your car if you find you, your dog or you gear gets regularly dirty or muddy.
In all honesty it doesn't really live up to the "power" pressure washer of its name, but instead providing a portable option to wash muddy boots, rinse of your tent or coat. If you use the large brush attachment provided this will be able to help get off stubborn mud or dirt that would otherwise require better water pressure.
There is also the benefit of a trigger lock to save your finger from holding the trigger down. You can tighten or loosen the end of the nozzle to control the amount that comes out.
To open the tank you will need to first unlock by clicking it unlocked and then twisting it anti-clockwise. You will be able to fill it with 8 litres of water. Once you put the handle back on and lock it. You'll be required to pump the handle about 25 times to provide it with the pressure needed for the water to come out. It isn't the largest amount of water so this really is for small muddy jobs and for light tasks.
Expect this portable power washer to moisten up very dirty sections of bicycle or car, you can then wash it with the brush attachment and then rinse off afterwards. Unlike with a plug-in and hose fed pressure washer, which will clean up a car or bike in no time with just water pressure alone.
- Very cheap
- Very lightweight
- Easy to use
- Easy to transport and carry
- Very little water pressure
- Manual pump
- Small size water tank
This isn't really a "power" pressure washer even with the manual pumping involved but it provides good ability rinsing at a cheap and cheerful price. If you are after a portable option that will rinse wetsuits, dirty clothing and get most of the mud and grime off of a bicycle after riding in muddy conditions then this will suit you and your tasks perfectly without breaking the bank. If you want a powerful pressure washer that will also clean your flooring, remove weeds, clean a dirty car through pressure alone, then this is not for you.
