Pressure Washer Nozzle Guide


Pressure Washer Nozzle Guide

STIHL offers several nozzles for use with your pressure washer, giving you a choice of spray angles and pressures that work best for your cleaning task.

The red zero-degree nozzle delivers a small, very concentrated stream of water. This nozzle is typically used for removing tough stains and debris from concrete and metal. Do not use this nozzle on wood or siding, as this stream is very strong and powerful and can damage a soft surface.

The yellow 15-degree nozzle is typically used for surface preparation such as removing dirt, mildew or loose paint, and can be used on most surfaces.

The green 25-degree nozzle is best used to sweep away dirt and mud. Use it to clear leaves from decks, driveways and sidewalks.

The black nozzle is a low-pressure detergent nozzle. Use this when applying detergents for your cleaning projects.

The rotating nozzle is sold as an accessory for STIHL pressure washers. The water rotates in a circular motion to produce a jet stream between 5,000 to 9,000 rpm of cleaning power. It has a rotating, zero-degree impact, and expands to a 15-degree wand pattern.

A long-range detergent nozzle, also sold as a pressure washer accessory, will apply detergent up to 30 feet, and is perfect for those areas high above the ground. If you are unsure of which pressure washer nozzle is best for your cleaning job, refer to your product instruction manual or visit your local STIHL Dealer.
