Types of Pressure Washers
What’s the distinction between gas pressure washers and electric pressure washers? Electric versions are suitable for smaller work, simpler to launch, smoother to operate and safer than their gas counterparts. With gas models, due to better power output, you can drive about easily and manage bigger tasks. The most popular form for do-it-yourself projects are cold-water pressure washers. Need a little heat to apply to your cleaning? Perhaps hot-water pressure washers are just what you need.
Control of Pressure Washer
Pressure washers come in light-, medium-, high- and even commercial-duty models to suit the needs, with washing capacity determined by pounds per square inch (PSI) and gallons per minute (GPM). PSI scores for high-pressure power washers vary from 1300 PSI to 2800 PSI (and higher). The larger the combined PSI and GPM performance, the quicker the cleaning is completed. For washing outdoor furniture and vehicles, light-duty pressure washers are better, whereas heavy-duty pressure washers are best for tasks such as removing paint.
Accessories for Pressure Washers
By using pressure washer parts and components and pressure washer extensions, such as brushes for scrubbing, surface cleaners for sidewalks and extension wands for touching high places, get the most out of your appliances. Choosing the suitable soap for pressure washers also helps ensure that you get the job done correctly.
You can use our Pressure Washer Purchase Guide and pressure washer reviews to discover the choices, whether you are in the market to buy or rent a pressure washer. Clean surfaces are only a spray out, with top-rated brands such as Karcher pressure washers, Generac pressure washers, Briggs & Stratton pressure washers or Husqvarna pressure washers. We also have a range of pressure washers from CRAFTSMAN, Greenworks pressure washers, SIMPSON pressure washers, Yard Force pressure washers and also Honda Powered pressure washers.
Hand Held Electric
The tiniest, most light-weight pressure washers we bring are hand holding electric pressure washers. You just plug it in and start washing at a household socket. You can conveniently stack them on a garage shelf because of their limited size.
They’re great for car washing, outdoor furniture repair, and stuff like grills. If you intend to handle bigger work, it will take a long time for hand held units, so move up to a more efficient category.
Medium electric pressure washers are the next step up for market grade units. You can drag them back, making them easy on the shoulder, the greatest improvement over hand holding units. You just plug it into an outlet again and let the good times roll.
For sweeping small patios or balconies, you can use these. If you’re going to wash all the sides of your home under pressure or clean a wide deck, search for a more efficient unit.
Big electric pressure washers with output and characteristics really up the ante. For quick portability, they’re on rails, have stronger engines and provide other advantages, such as on-board detergent tanks.
Big electric pressure washers are up to the challenge whether you intend on scraping moss, washing narrow patios, decks or walkways.
Our extra-large power washers deliver the most bells and whistles if you go for an electric-powered user model. These pressure washers boast higher-quality pumps, engines and features such as hose reels and detergent tanks, in addition to higher PSI ratings (as many as 2000).
X-Large electrical pressure washers can be much faster than most electrical units on decks and patios. You will get more hours of cleaning from the machine with the stronger pumps and engine. If this power is still not enough, look at our gas-powered systems.

Helpful tips and tricks to keep your Pressure Washer going strong
Use the correct oil.
For pressure washers, the usual 30W oil sold for cars may be poor. So make sure you’re using the right thing and not only grabbing anything you put in your vehicle. You need tiny, air-cooled engine oil. Often use the prescribed oil included in the manual.
Think about extensions
Wand extenders and longer (~50′) hoses are perfect for accessing the upper storeys and gutters. Think of extensions. They take you away from ladders and so also discourage you from trying to move the unit around. If you’re tall, when operating on ground level surfaces, a wand extension will truly save your back.
Do you have big hands?
Separating the hoses from the system and everything in close quarters will also be tough to get your hands in. To make it easier to remove, consider putting on a fast reconnect adapter.
Don’t over tighten anything
We said this in # 3, but just don’t. Don’t over tighten something. You would potentially get leaks if you overtighten the inlet hose to the washer, for example. Remember, greater isn’t necessarily stronger!
