We are big fans of the Vytronix brand. They do a really good job of filling a gap in the market for people that want simple jobs done well but they don’t want to spend a lot of money.
If you want to use your pressure washer every day and you have a massive drive that hasn’t been cleaned for years or you want to clean the bricks on the side of your house that haven’t been touched for 20 years then this Vytronix pressure washer is probably not right for you.
But what if you don’t want to spend much money and you are looking for something that does the basics well?
Maybe you want to clean the car once a week or you want to clean down the garden furniture twice a year or give the barbeque a blast every now and then or perhaps the wife if she gets out of line occasionally?
Just kidding about the wife, I prefer to use mine on the children to keep them clean and save money on the hot water.
One of the biggest mistakes that people make is spending too much money on features that will never be used.
You can spend hundreds of pounds on a pressure washer if you want but if you only want to clean things that need a moderate amount of pressure then there is no point in spending big bucks.
One of the most expensive things about a pressure washer is the motor that generates the pressure. The higher the pressure, the more expensive the end price.
If you want to get the best possible value for money then ask yourself what jobs you want to do and then buy a pressure washer accordingly.
Most people will only get a pressure washer out a maximum of once a week to hose down the car or motorbike or bicycle and a couple of times a year to hose down the drive or shed.
If that is you then this is going to be everything you need at a very affordable price.
If you are looking to buy a pressure washer for the first time then this is well worth considering so that you can evaluate if its right for all the jobs you need doing without taking a risk on something much more expensive.
This pressure washer is going to be suitable for the following types of jobs amongst others:
Back Garden slabs – Spring arrives and to prepare for the Summer you can easily blast away the slime and grime that has built up over the Winter.
Front Drive – If done twice a year this pressure washer will keep it nice and clean and avoid the thick ground in dirt that can accumulate over the years.
Shed and Fences – Anything wooden doesn’t need super high power to keep it clean and in fact, if you use too high a pressure it can be damaged by a pressure washer. The Vytronix pressure washer is perfect for all wooden surfaces.
The Car – This is absolutely ideal to hose down the car to get off most of the surface dirt especially on the alloys before giving it a quick once over with a sponge before rinsing again with the pressure washer. Using a pressure washer to clean your car makes it quicker and cleaner.
You get a maximum of 105 bar of pressure with the Vytronix which isn’t the most powerful out there but at this price, you wouldn’t expect it to be.
As mentioned above that kind of pressure is going to be good enough for most people and small to medium-sized homes. Why spend more if you don’t have to?
It comes with a 1-year guarantee so there is no need to be concerned about the super-budget price point. If anything goes wrong in the first 12 months it’s covered.
You get a single adjustable nozzle that enables you to change the amount of pressure according to the job. It’s very simple to use, so much so that you can point and spray and carry the base unit around with you at the same time.
The gun stores neatly on the main body of the pressure washer so it stays all together and it’s a very compact appliance measuring in at just 47cm tall and 25cm wide
It’s light at 6.1kg and light enough that you can carry it around with you whilst you clean or stand it up next to you.
Because it’s so light it doesn’t come with wheels so if you don’t want to lift your pressure washer and prefer to wheel it around then this may not be for you but it is certainly light enough for that not to really be an issue.
It comes with a 5-metre hose and a 5-metre mains cable and when you combine that with the 1-metre gun you are looking at about an 11 metre total reach which should be plenty but you can always add an extension cable if you need more.
You can pay much more money for a pressure washer but you may be wasting your money if you only want to use it for heavy-duty use occasionally.
If you want to use it most of the time for removing dirt that isn’t ingrained into the surface like cars and bikes then it will do its job just fine and save you a packet over the more expensive branded pressure washers
It’s very unusual to find a pressure washer that can deliver more than 100 bar of pressure at anywhere near this price and it punches well above its weight for the price that is being asked.
For something that will clean all of the regular things really well ongoing plus things like decking and garden furniture a couple of times a year, this is an absolute bargain.
