Help Me Decide – Hot vs Cold Water Pressure Washers

Hot Water Pressure Washers

  • Faster results and shorter drying times - hot water quickly loosens and dissolves dirt, solidified oils and fats allowing workers to save time and energy. As well as being cost-effective and economical, surfaces that are cleaned with hot water dry faster enabling them to be used sooner.
  • Germ-reducing effect without detergents - cleaning with hot water significantly reduces the presence of germs without the need for disinfectants. This helps to protect the environment, as well as saving money and resources.
  • Protection of surfaces - achieve the same cleaning effect and protect sensitive surfaces by cleaning using a lower working pressure.

  • Total independence - use even where there is no power supply, Kärcher gas-powered pressure washers are perfect for those on the move. These machines are ideal for use in agriculture, construction or the public sector.
  • Industry-specific solutions - specifically designed and tailored to your requirements, Kärcher provides machines to be used in a variety of industries, from the strict hygiene requirements of the food industry to use in potentially explosive environments.

Electric vs Gas/Diesel Pressure Washers

When deciding which pressure washer is right for the job, one important consideration is your available power source. Will your cleaning be within reach of an electrical outlet or generator? Will you need the freedom to move about a jobsite without restrictions? Will you be cleaning indoors or outdoors? Consider these important factors before selecting your next pressure washer.

Why select an electric pressure washer?

  • No exhaust - can be used indoors or outdoors
  • Less maintenance
  • Quieter - Run-time not limited by tank size

Why use a gas or diesel pressure washer?

  • Portable - can move machine to the job
  • Easy to obtain fuel

Direct-Drive vs Belt-Drive Pumps

Another important factor in selecting the right pressure washer is deciding between a machine with a direct-drive pump or one with a belt-drive pump. Generally speaking, belt-drive pumps create less stress on the engine and tend to be longer lasting for industrial use, compared to their direct-drive counterparts.

Direct-Drive pump benefits:

  • Compact design
  • Fewer moving parts resulting in lower initial cost

Belt-Drive pump benefits:

  • Longer life as a result of lower RPM and lower operating temperature
  • Better for heavy-use applications

Customer Testimonial

"Our HDS 2.3/12 C Ed power washer has been one of the best pieces of equipment we’ve purchased. We now have less maintenance issues and greater power. Our pressure washer is primarily used to clean our large mixers where we blend our ingredients. These mixers are covered with oil, even lard, and the pressure washer has no problem washing these away. It has been a vital piece of equipment for our company."
