Zoom on the Stihl RE 100 PLUS CONTROL

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:

  • application of detergent and cleaning solutions
  • intense cleaning of hard surfaces

The following sections will present you in detail its power characteristics and design, its main features and all the additional features it has to offer.


The Stihl RE 100 PLUS CONTROL in use


The Stihl RE 100 PLUS CONTROL's axial cam pump, powered by a 13 amp motor, can provide a pressure of up to 1800 PSI (approximately 30 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 1.2 GPM (values claimed by the manufacturer). The Stihl RE 100 PLUS CONTROL thus has a cleaning power of 2160 Cleaning Units.

Being an electric pressure washer, the Stihl RE 100 PLUS CONTROL's motor can be easily started by a convenient ON/OFF switch. The unit is ready-to-use with peace of mind, thanks to the included 35 ft GFCI cord.

Design & Handling

With its portable design, the Stihl RE 100 PLUS CONTROL makes mobility one of its core strengths. The handle adds to the RE 100 PLUS CONTROL convenience of transport.

Because the device weighs just 19.8 lbs, carrying it around is very easy. It is lightweight, partly thanks to its plastic frame. A set of two solid wheels also improves the ease of transport of the device.

Main Features

The Stihl RE 100 PLUS CONTROL in use


The Stihl RE 100 PLUS CONTROL comes with a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose, a 3-in-1 nozzle and a detergent injection feature, which are detailed below.

  • Pressure hose: The included 20 ft high-pressure hose can be neatly stored on the unit when idle thanks to a convenient hose reel, which also improves its lifespan.
  • Spray gun and wand: The included Control spray gun and its wand can be easily stored in a side hook.
  • 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 unit's trigger gun and its control panel

Stihl's Control trigger gun provides you with an easy and convenient way to control pressure when cleaning.

Powered by 2 AAA batteries, it features a button that allows you to easily swap between three different pressure levels. The desired pressure level is then communicated to the motor via radio frequency.

LED indicators illuminate to clearly show you which of the 3 pressure levels is currently selected.

  • Safety: Safety of operation is enhanced by a trigger lock mechanism (which prevents accidental operation).
  • Accessories: On top of an owner's manual (opens in a new tab) and the usual documentation to get you swiftly started, the Stihl RE 100 PLUS CONTROL also comes with detergent tank, wand, nozzle cleaner, pressure hose, spray gun and power cord.

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.

  • The Stihl RE 100 PLUS CONTROL, which can achieve a PSI of up to 1800, falls behind the other electric pressure washers in the $240 to $300 price range. If the highest possible power of the water stream is your priority, one of the champions in this price range is the Westinghouse WPX3000e with 3000 PSI.
  • The achievable water flow of this washer, which reaches 1.2 GPM (gallons per minute) can be described as low, compared to other devices in its price range. If you’re after the highest rinsing efficiency, one of the units with the highest water flow in the current price range is the Greenworks GPW2700, that can deliver up to 2.3 GPM.
  • The RE 100 PLUS CONTROL ranks as below average in terms of Cleaning Units, compared to electric devices in its price range, reaching only a value of 2160 CU (PSI X GPM). If the highest overall cleaning power is your top priority, the Ryobi RY143011, which can reach up to 3300 Cleaning Units, is one of the most efficient of the devices in the current price range.
