Karcher Pressure Washers

A pressure washer might seem like an item to rent, not buy, but once homeowners get a feel for a Karcher pressure washer, they often change their tune.

Some of the obvious uses for a Karcher pressure washer are well known - like spraying down the house to rid it of spiderwebs or making concrete look fresh - but there are many other uses not immediately obvious to the dubious homeowner.

Many Uses

Karcher pressure washers can assist a homeowner in easily and efficiently cleaning boats, garden furniture and vehicles, and a variety of accessories help in specific uses like drain cleaning, tank cleaning and moss removal.

Pressure washers connect to a garden hose to provide water to desired surfaces. There's a powerful motor in the pressure washer which forces the water through at a very high speed. Karcher pressure washers are highly efficient, using less water and providing as much or more power as other pressure washers.


In purchasing a Karcher pressure washer, you have a few choices. You can purchase an electric model or a gas-powered one. The most popular choice is the electric-powered model and these range from an operating pressure of 1,400 psi to 1,600 psi with water volume ranging from 1.3 gallons per minute to 1.6 gallons per minute.

Gas powered Karcher pressure washers are generally more powerful, with operating pressures ranging from 2,000 psi to 2,400 psi, and water volume ranging from 2 gallons per minute to 2.5 gallons per minute.

All Karcher pressure washers also come with four tips to place on the end of the water wand. These tips help to angle the spray at a 0 degree, 15 degree, 30 degree and 45 degree angle. Your tip choice will depend on the degree of ground-in dirt or other matter you're trying to remove.

How much to spend on a Karcher pressure washer is generally a matter of choice, but as in most larger purchases, it makes sense to buy the best you can afford.

Since Karcher pressure washers are considered some of the best in the world, even a bottom-end washer will be of better quality and stand the test of time better than a lesser name. Committed to continual growth, Karcher says that 70% of its product line was developed in the last four years.
