Aldi Workzone Pressure Washer Review

ByKevin Simon

Jun 2, 2016


Aldi a few weeks ago as one of their special buys was a Workzone 2.2kw pressure washer @ £79.99, I brought one for my work and here is a honest review of it after a few weeks working with the unit. First the specification of the pressure wash is 2200w, max pressure 150bar, nominal 110bar, flow 450 l/h, 10m hose, 5m power cord, weight without accessories 10.7kg.

I run a fish pond cleaning business, so part of my job I use a pressure wash to clean the pond of the blanket weed that grows on either the liner or concrete. So for this job I need a reliable and powerful pressure washer. To see full details of what I do for a pond service see HERE.

The unit is nice and solid not too heavy, but heavy enough. The hose length is great at 10 metres, and does have a winder to keep it tidy, though did find using this does seem to topple a bit with the weight, found if you stand behind the pressure wash and support against your body the winder works fine. The power cable is an ok length and can be wrapped on the side. Wheeling the unit around seems OK the wheels are big and solid so can go over uneven ground ok.

Noise level is a bit more than my old pressure wash but not to noisy at 98db. It does have an auto shut off so when you are not pressing down on the trigger, the pump cuts off. Though recommend if not using for 10mins or so to use the power switch on the front of the unit.

So far I have been really impressed with this Workzone pressure wash. I use between the normal Lance that has an adjustable flat spray and then the turbo Lance which produced a rotating circle of water, if at about and 1″ away from the surface the diameter of the output is about 1″. I found for my purposes the turbo Lance is great. It gets the blanket weeds off a lot better than my old karcher. The only accessory that comes with it that I haven’t used is the patio / wall brush cleaner, as for me this wouldn’t be suitable but does seem to be a good accessory will be trying soon at home though and not sure about using on the car. You do also have a detergent bottle that can be used and does come with some detergent, though i have no need for this function

I originally brought this first of all as a spare to my 3 year old Karcher k3.99 – Which is 1700 watt, 120 maximum bar pressure and 380 litres per hour, but to be honest it is a lot better then my old Karcher and really cost half the price I paid for the Karcher only 3 years ago. So now using the Workzone one in my daily jobs. As with the majority of Aldi electrical equipment it does come with a 3 year warranty. I would recommend this pressure wash over other that are a similar price as seen some other manufacturers but for the price these use less power but lower pressure, which the better the bar pressure the better it will remove dirt and grime. So if you do see them in store or when they come up on special again I would recommend getting one, to be honest next time I see them in my local store will get another as a spare.

  1. I have had two of the 2200w workzone pressure water cleaners both have died unexpectedly after using them only briefly. Unfortunately the last one I used briefly then didn’t use again for 2 years and the 3 yrs warranty is now not valid. Only $129 Aust however the inconvenience of it all! You should be able to use it more than 12 times before breaking down!!!!

    1. Hi Lynn,
      Chasing a trigger handle for 2200kw Workzone pressure cleaner model #Q1W-SP20-1900A.
      If you still have it give me an e-mail, chasing parts, I borrowed the friends and broke it and started leaking badly, just need a handle to repair same. Chris

  2. My Spray gun started leaking profusely after only a few washes. can`t find receipt..but only Aldi sell these Help

  3. Just bought one of these (March 2018). Could you tell me what connector to buy to attach the hose to? I’ve tried various ones and after about 30 seconds the hose pipe comes off with the pressure of the water.
    Thank you

  4. For the price, l believe the machine preforms well, certainly good enough for domestic use. I guess it all depends how much use the washer gets; I’ve used the machine twice, the performance is good, but the washer soap bottle emptied after washing one side of the car, the lance and adapter joints leaked and I stepped on the power plug and flattened the pins. I’m guessing the machine parts are cheap, the real test will be sourcing the pressure switch
    Valve; that may be the first item to fail. Still good value for money a similar machine can cost up to £350.

  5. Hi i recently purchased the same item and found that it leaked a lot of water at the hose plug in point after examining this fault I couldn’t find a washer (o’ring)attached anywhere and couldn’t see where one could be placed would you perhaps be able to shed any light on this matter.

  6. Hi, I’ve lost the second wand and the two extension rods from the patio cleaner (bought separately). Do you know if I can buy any other make attachments? I want to use a patio cleaner. Cheers

  7. I have an Aldi pressure washer Q1W-SP201900A (03/2016) I have just purchased a 95614 patio & wall cleaner on eBay which hasn’t
    Been used. But I just tried to connect
    it to my pressure washer but the connection to the trigger gun don’ match? Is there an adaptor that I need to purchase?

  9. Bought one used it once and the next time I tried it it tripped the house main breaker and never worked again. Last time I buy Aldi junk!

  10. I need a gun for pressure washerQ1W-SP20-1900A. (03/2016). Where can I get one or is there a comparable replacement.

  11. This is a good pressure washer however I have two and both the guns have failed in the same place. The above site says the replacement guns are in stock but they are not. I think it’s an m22 connector but not found a replacement yet
