Is there a good $100.elec 120 vt pressure washer

I've been looking for an electric pressure washer to use in my garage.
Something around 1600 psi, 120 volt etc.
Any good recommendations?

I don't know about electric ones. I'd guess in that price range, the answer is no.

Hello NeverEnoughTime,


I tried to repair a couple years back, cost to repair exceeded the value of the machine. I no longer entertain the thought of repairing, I'd recommend a larger gas model.....

A $100 pressure washer sounds like a disposable unit to me ..... and not sure it would develop that much pressure Personally I wouldn't own an electric PWer.

I have a gas model already. I want to add one in my garage to wash the salt off the vehicles
during the winter months. I use a garden hose now.
There are what looks like a few good brands available at the $100.-150.range now. A couple years ago there were only a few like the Karcher brand which doesn't get good reviews because the unit is cheaply made.
Just wondering if anyone has had a good experience with something they bought from Lowes, etc...

Got one I'll see cheap, my girl friend bought years ago before I met her (like she was ever going to use it ) hose is so stiff I have to roll the whole thing out straight to use it, no where close enough pressure to do anything but get leaves off the side walk.
My gas powered washer 2500 PSI will clean the car, get mold off the vinyl siding, make the concrete sidewalks look like new.

Lowes is just a warehouse store just like others, they don't build the products they sell. Their built by other companies then branded (decals) for the stores.

I bought a new Whirlpool refrigerator from Lowes on line, the driver drove 1 1/4 hrs one way to deliver it. They removed the old one and installed the new one ice maker and all then hauled the old one off, all for FREE !

So, my experience with Lowes was a positive one.....

I have a Stanley electric (model #P2000S-BB) I bought earlier this year to replace my aging and cantankerous gas one. Couldn't be happier with it. It's at the high end of your price range; got mine on sale and with vet's discount (Lowe's).
