Your guide to the best Honda Pressure Washer

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:
