  • Pressure washer for trucks/ equipment

    My little electric washer took a dump. I used the crap out of it, so I'm not surprised it gave up on me. It served it's purpose well, but I grew tired of it's limitations over time.

    Anyway, it's time to buy something better. Thinking a gas unit this time around. Question is, what would be a good unit to buy? I would primarily use it to wash vehicles/ trailers/ equipment and such. However, occassionally it could be used to wash my fence and house. That said, what pressure should I be looking at? I don't want something that will blast decals off mowers, etc.

    My electric one was rated at 1750 psi (I believe), a Karcher w/ the fancy nozzle deal that supposedly doubles the washing power...

    You need to look at gallons per minute, not psi.
    The more gpm, the better.

    For what you want, look for at least 3-4 gpm.

    Quality Is Good

      i have a 3 gpm power washer and im happy with it, although im just a home owner, dont do business with it. Mines a craftsman. I was going to get a troybilt, but it had same setup just different name and a little cheaper in my price range.
