There are a ton of pressure washers to pick from. You can pick from gas, electric or battery operated machines. Even psi is widely varied from machine to machine. However if you're a homeowner looking for an all around quality machine that has some pretty cool bells and whistles, not to mention powerful, the Yard Force might be something right up your alley.
This is the first time I have had any experience with Yard Force. In fact, I had not heard of them until we went to GIE this year. This pressure washer caught our eye as it was very eye appealing, so we just had to get a closer look. We had the chance to try one of these out for ourselves and have to say this is a very cool pressure washer.
First, this pressure washer, model YF2200BL, is designed with a brushless motor and puts out 2200 psi while working off 13 amps. One cool feature of this pressure washer is the pressure control adjustment. Just turn the dial to your desired output and you're ready to go to work. You can adjust the pressure at 1,300, 1,600, 1,900 and 2,200 psi. The unit is fully protected with it's cage and also has a folding handle. While most companies choose to include a junkie hose line, the Yard Force comes with a high quality 25′ hose. The power cord is nice and long coming in at 35′ with a pigtail GFCI.
The wand is a stainless steel wand with a 1/4″ quick connect tip. Just below the handle is where you can easily store and access different tips. You get four tips with the unit 15°, 40°, Soap plus BONUS Turbo nozzle. The unit has 12″ wheels which are a good size when trying to roll over your hose or cracks on the ground. This information I took from the website, but according to them this pressure washer operates at an 89% efficiency compared to a 190cc at a 22% inefficiency. Also the cost to operate is much less. The YF2200BL is $0.19 per hour versus $2.03 per hour for the 190cc engine.
All in all I really like this pressure washer. It's powerful and easy to move around. They didn't cheap out on the hose or length of the power cord, which is a huge plus. Now I am not familiar with this company, so I am not sure how well they are built and how they will last over time. I like the fact that it comes with a 3 year warranty in case I do experience a problem. The unit seems to be quality and I really wouldn't hesitate to recommend this to a friend.
