Wilks have created a superior design that outperforms similar heavyweight pressure washers when it comes to pressure output. The air-cooled 3000 watt motor delivers the power you need to cut down cleaning times.

Wilks-USA RX550i Review

First off the Wilks USA pressure washer RX550i is well built and comes with a lot of attachments, parts and fittings, as well as a 26m hose. It is an impressive bit of kit, while being powerful it also has a practical range of fittings as well as the long hose making it ideal for all tasks.

Features

For the money this is a great pressure washer, it is heavy duty and well built, large wheels make it easy to move, a hose reel is built in for the 18meter hose. There is also a 8m attachment hose that takes its overall length to 26m. This makes it ideal for cleaning cars, moving around without having to wheel the pressure washer with you. It also comes with a 5m long power cord too.

There is a on-board detergent tank which can easily be filled with any cleaning solution, ideal for patios and decking, or car washing detergent.

There are 5 varying nozzles that are designed for different tasks and give a different spray depending on which is used. This pressure washer features a ‘click and go’ system which makes using the unit very simple and quick, swapping them over in a few seconds.

With a 3000 watt motor and 510 l/h water flow it is perfect for tough tasks such as jet washing decking and patios.

With this you get a 24 month warranty, a clear manual although it is straight forward to set up and use.

Is it the most powerful?

The pressure washer comes with a stated bar pressure of 262, which is very powerful, however this is the initial pressure. When you pull the trigger you do get a powerful burst, however once in use the pressure is actually 155 bar.

At 155 bar this is still powerful and great for heavy duty tasks, however it is important to note that it is not 262 bar of continuous pressure.

    I’ve just had my replacement Wilkes jet wash from union mart to be fair they where really helpful. Thanks Dan. However they used mano mano as there agent who where absolutely useless promising me the world but not following anything up. Getting back to the wilks petrol 15hp jetwash please look at others this machine is really loud and to be honest a cheap karcher does the same job avoid buying.
