This 3,100 psi unit boasts several smart features: Its Honda engine is a breeze to start, and its auto-idle feature runs with 40 percent less noise when you're not spraying. Its 25-foot hose has less memory than most, so it resists kinking. It's good for medium jobs – sidewalks, decks, and doors – but its stream isn't strong enough for stripping. [$400; ryobitools.com]
