Jimmy Powerwash HW8 Pro | Review

Jimmy, now a well-known manufacturer of cordless electric brooms for all budgets, has recently presented the HW8 Pro model, a scrubber suitable for all surfaces. We tried it for a week, appreciated the distinctive features and identified some defects. We tell you right away that it is good for all low-reflective floors, such as ceramic or terracotta, while it is not particularly recommended if you have parquet throughout the house, especially if it is dark in color.

The shape is the classic one. of an electric broom, with two buttons on the upper handle that allow you to switch it on and select the suction power. Below the handle, a trigger allows you to activate the jet of water, which will be sprayed from a nozzle positioned on the head of the brush. This is a distinctive feature of the HW8 Pro compared to other models that directly wet the rotating brush or send the water jet directly onto the surface to be cleaned, always near the brush. The advantage of the Jimmy solution is the possibility to manually decide the amount of water to use, abounding in the dirtiest areas and saving it in the areas where a damp brush is sufficient.

Clean water, together with the detergent, it must be inserted in a tank positioned at the rear, while in front there is the dirty water tank, much larger than the rear one, and which therefore allows you to clean very large surfaces before being emptied. The jet of water that is sprayed through the use of the trigger is not particularly uniform, but this does not create a cleaning problem. Rather the jet is wide enough and if you spray with the brush near a piece of furniture, you risk getting it wet. The brush itself is unable to reach the edge of the floor, remaining about 2 cm away from the wall.

A more important defect of Jimmy Powerwash is the presence of the two rear support wheels, in rubber, which unfortunately leave some stripes on the floor, totally invisible on not very reflective or light surfaces, quite visible on dark surfaces instead. In our case, for example, we did not notice this defect on the light porcelain stoneware in the kitchen and gray in the bathrooms, which is visible on the walnut parquet in the rest of the house.

The battery is inserted by removing a panel in the back , and being removable you can change it as needed extending the autonomy of use to infinity. The autonomy of a single charge is a few tens of minutes, therefore sufficient to thoroughly clean a large apartment or even a multi-storey house of a few hundred square meters.

The self-cleaning cycle is convenient. it can be started by simply holding down the mode selection button for three seconds, after placing the HW8 Pro on the charging base. In this way the brush is cleaned as well as the suction ducts. You can then remove the dirty water tank, empty it and rinse it. Maintenance takes only seconds, and is therefore convenient to use even every day.


Jimmy Powerwash HW8 Pro is sold at a list price of 334.99 euros, in line with products of this kind. We appreciate the presence of the trigger that allows us to spray the water directly on the surface, letting us decide the quantity and where to spray it. The level of cleaning is the same as that of other models in this range, and therefore good for normal dirt, while it struggles a little with stubborn dirt for days. Convenient self-cleaning system that reduces maintenance time to a few seconds after each use, while autonomy will be more than enough for most homes.

Too bad for the marks it leaves during use, totally invisible on light surfaces, but quite visible on dark ones. If you have a house with light floors, it will be fine, on the contrary you may be a little disappointed and be ready to "touch up" some areas in the old way.
