It finally happened - I've decided to sell an entry-level pressure washer. The Karcher K series really impressed me. For their cost, they seem to have better construction, motors & pump than 99% of the cheap consumer pressure washers.
Now, this is drawn from my experience and is a preference, but I would much rather have more flow than pressure for washing a car. The target is as much flow as possible at around 1000 PSI. Don't get too hung up on the pressure number. I know we have been conditioned to think we are getting 2,000 or 3,000 PSI out of pressure washers, but that is not what I measure in real-world testing. 1,000 PSI is more than enough to blast the mud off your Jeep or get the salt out of your wheel wells. Trust me on this one, flow (GPM) is king in the car washing game. For example, the $4,500 Kranzle I had in my wash bay provided me 950 measured PSI with a 6.0 sized nozzle at 2.8 GPM.
If you want to take your pressure washer to the next level, look for our portable or wall install solutions on the website.
