Water pressure/square inch: 1,800
Cleaning power: The Husky took care of most of the gunk and grime on the patio, thanks to the turbo nozzle. But it didn't work quite as quickly.
What's to like: Unit has very clear dials. Accessories store easily in side compartments.
What's not to like: One of the two detergent tanks can't be removed, making it more challenging to fill.
Bottom line: A cost-conscious alternative to the Campbell Hausfeld, and nearly as powerful.
