  • Accessories: Rota nozzle, flow-through brush

No nonsense seems to be Makita’s mantra here. Cleaning performance is right on the tails of the best in the group, which is surprising when you consider the decidedly average-sounding specs: 110 Bar maximum pressure, 1,700W motor and 370 litres per hour max flow rate. Better still, the HW111 is a nice piece of kit to use.

Its squat design means you’ll never topple it when dragging the hose off the reel. And there’s a top-quality hose that won’t kink unless seriously ill treated. Our only gripe is that it’s a bit short on accessories; we feel Makita could have included a bit more kit at this price level.
