Pressure Washers for Professional Use
The best pressure washers make cleaning a breeze. They can be used to clean decks, patios, driveways and siding with ease. The higher the PSI and GPM level, the better suited the machine is for tougher jobs like stripping paint.
But which is the best pressure washer for you?
There are many different types of pressure washers to choose from, so here is a roundup guide for you to get access to the best pressure washers.
How to choose the best pressure washer
Before investing in one of the best pressure washers, think about what you plan to use it for and how often. A small patio or decking will only take minutes to clean with a good pressure washer, but large areas like driveways can take an hour or more.
In the past, pressure washers were relegated to professional cleaning crews and serious do-it-yourselfers. But today, pressure washers are relatively affordable and extremely versatile tools that can be used for a number of cleaning projects, from power washing your deck to removing years' worth of grime from your vinyl siding.
Since there are so many uses for pressure washers, it's important to choose the right one for the job. To help you find the best one for your needs, here are some of the best models that can suit your needs.
- Sun Joe SPX4000. It has a reliable 14.5 amp motor that delivers up to 2030 PSI of water pressure while still being lightweight and easy to maneuver around your property.
- If you want something more powerful, consider the Simpson Cleaning MSH3125-S with its 3100 PSI rating — though only professionals should use it.
Key Aspects of the Best Pressure Washers
Whatever the job, a pressure washer can make cleaning easier and faster. But with so many models on the market, it's tough to know where to start. Here are some tips for choosing the best pressure washer for you:
Gas-vs.-electric pressure washers
Gas-powered models offer more power than electric units and can be used almost anywhere. They do tend to be noisier, and they require regular tuneups and maintenance, such as getting their carburettors cleaned at least once per season. For most homeowners, an electric pressure washer will meet their needs just fine, though they're not as powerful or convenient as gas models and have less range.
They have advantages: They're environmentally friendly because they release fewer emissions into the air; they're quieter (though far from silent), and don't require any fuel or oil changes.
Power ratings are confusing
The most common pressure rating is pounds per square inch (PSI), which measures how much water pressure comes out of the nozzle of a power washer; this is often combined with gallons per minute. So before settling for any pressure washing machine, you need to have an estimate of the average work you expect it to deliver.
It would be best if you always had in mind that the more the PSI, the more the power. You, however, don't want to carry home an extra powerful pressure washer when all you need is to clean your car once a week. Visit the Giraffetools collections today for more guidance on the best pressure washers.
