We’ve talked at length on this site about pressure washing, and in particular petrol pressure washers. It’s not a simple case of buying the first one you can find though – many pressure washers aren’t up the the jobs you need them for.
It’s worth spending a little more to get a washer that’s going to make your life easy – an inferior model is likely to cause frustration and maybe even make the job harder than not having a washer at all.
Knowing what you want might be a simple matter if you know what you’re looking for, but that’s not going to help you much if you’ve never bought one before. Worse still, if you’ve never even used a petrol pressure washer, you probably don’t even know what features you need or what they do.
Do Your Research
The best way to overcome this is to do your homework. Just like we said in this post that there are plenty of instruction videos on the web and on YouTube in particular, there are also loads of websites dedicated to pressure washers. One of the best petrol pressure washers sites is called http://www.petrolpressurewashers.com, a review site that looks at lots of brands and what each offer. They even go into considerable detail about how they can be used and what you need to consider before buying.
As a general rule of thumb, the petrol powered pressure washers tend to be more powerful than electric models, also known as jet washers. What’s more, electric ones need to be plugged in, and that’s not a huge amount of help if there’s not power supply near by. On the other hand, petrol driven engines can be used anywhere, making them a lot more versatile.
Where To Buy A Pressure Washer
You can see a lot of electric and petrol models on Amazon or in your local Screwfix or even Argos, so they’re not hard to find, but as we said earlier – the trick is really to find something that’s going to do the job well – so don’t be swayed by the latest special offer you stumble across unless you know what you’re looking for.
