Pressure washer attachments make cleaning a lot easier whether it be your car, bike, garden or even wheelie bin. While some pressure washer bundles will include a selection of attachments, cheaper models and used examples may leave you with nothing more than a nozzle. We've looked at official attachments from the top manufacturers and have the best examples right here. Note that this list doesn't include snow foam lances, we have a separate list for those right here.

Which pressure washer should I buy?

If you've had a look at pressure washers you'll quickly discover that there is a massive spectrum of prices that can make it a minefield to find the best pressure washer for your needs.

While it can be tempting to blow £200 plus on a high powered pressure washer this often isn't necessary. These are if anything too powerful for domestic work and best left to builders and the like for more industrial cleaning. There are plenty of excellent domestic pressure washers available for less than £150 and many good examples for sale for less than £100. Take a look at our current favourite pressure washers here.
