In a nutshell, the Stihl RE 100 PLUS CONTROL is a light duty pressure washer, which not only offers an all-around versatile cleaning experience, but that also allows:

  • applying detergent and cleaning solutions, and rinsing surfaces
  • spot cleaning of hard, unpainted surfaces, and removing stubborn stains

Ahead are presented its power characteristics and design, its main features and any other additional features.

Along with the Stihl RE 100 PLUS CONTROL itself, the package also includes a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose, a 3-in-1 nozzle and a detergent injection feature, which are discussed in further detail below.

  • Nozzle: a 3-in-1 nozzle is included.

    Stihl's 3-in-1 nozzle Stihl's 3-in-1 nozzle offers three spray pattern settings (fan-jet, rotary, and detergent). Selection of a specific spray pattern is made by simply turning off the unit, and rotating the nozzle to the desired setting.

The Stihl RE 100 PLUS CONTROL's performance versus other pressure washers

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how the key specs of the Stihl RE 100 PLUS CONTROL compare to similarly priced pressure washers.

  • Featuring 1800 PSI, the Stihl RE 100 PLUS CONTROL achieves a lower pressure value compared to competing electric pressure washers within the $240-300 price category. For those prioritizing maximum water stream power, consider the Westinghouse WPX3200e, boasting 3200 PSI, as a standout performer in this price range.
  • When contrasted with devices in the aforementioned price bracket, this washer and its 1.2 GPM lie at the lower range of attainable water flow. If maximum rinsing efficiency is your top priority, one of the devices with the highest water flow in the same price range is the Greenworks GPW2700, with a GPM of 2.3.
  • Amongst similarly priced electric devices, the 2160 Cleaning Units (PSI X GPM) of the RE 100 PLUS CONTROL rank as low. If the highest overall cleaning power is a priority, the Greenworks GPW2700 and its 3240 Cleaning Units are notable for their higher potential cleaning efficiency compared to units in the same price range.
