There are two different designs of pressure washers: hot water and cold water. Within those options, you can further select among different fuel types and mobility. But first, it’s important to understand the difference between hot water and cold water models. Consider what you’re cleaning:
Cold pressure washers are ideal for cleaning dust and mud.
You will need a hot water pressure washer. Cold water pressure washers will just smear the grease around. Hot water pressure washers are masters at efficiently cutting through grease and oil.
Electric driven pressure washers offer the most convenience in the smallest package. They operate quietly and a little more compactly than their gas engine counterparts. Requiring less maintenance, an electric driven washer can provide just the right amount of cleaning power in the most convenient package.
Gas driven pressure washers provide a lot more power for a more economical price. They provide the greatest flexibility as far as portability is concerned, and are a favorite of leading contractors across the United States. Diesel driven pressure washers offer optimal cleaning power.
Diesel driven pressure washers offer the most cleaning power when sheer volume is required. The largest of the pressure washing units, a diesel driven washer meets the requirements of the job site and the demands of the toughest cleaning jobs.
A portable unit is capable of going where you need it. Great for multi-site tasks and for tasks that require cleaning flexibility.
Stationary units can be placed out of the way. Additional features, like a remote station, make them simple and easy to use for permanent installations.
